Pros

Free shares, people with no formal qualifications can get into management positions, excellent training and learning opportunities.

Cons

Poor pay for even the managers. Minimum wage for staff. 50 hour weeks. Easy to get fired, everything is a disciplinary offense!!

Advice to Management

Pay your shift managers more, management is a huge responsibility, and under £8 per hour? Disgraceful!

    Pros

    The staff are all quite young and a lot of fun.

    Cons

    Long hours
    Minimum wage
    Occasional unpleasant customer
    Often late shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Training should involve more of what the staff will be doing day to day and less about corporate objectives. This is because the people behind the bar don't decide corporate objectives and don't really really affect them.
