I worked at J D Wetherspoon part-time (Less than a year)
Was a good summer job where you meet lots of people in a fast paced environment. Training was good with very friendly staff. Getting paid weekly is also good along with discounted food.
The pay was poor and it was difficult changing around shifts. Dealing with drunk people is hard work and can get exhausting.
Advice to Management
Increase pay, especially on bank holidays and holidays. More flexibility with shifts and improving the mystery customer set up .
I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon.
The interview was pretty standard. Make sure you know basic information/history about them and read the job role/description then you will be fine. I think couple of hrs unpaid trial is not fair. 1. You are not paid for your time 2. It is too shallow to take a couple of hours to see if one worker will fit into your team or not. Minimum wage for overloads of work and long hours...seriously? I am not taking this personal. I think I did very well but they hired some 18 year old boy instead. 2 good things about them tho! Free food and friendly staffs and thats it. I am being honest as much as I can. I am happy for those who got offers tho! Hope you enjoy it.
