    Pros

    Great work and co-workers. Challenging, but satisfying way to grow professionally . This job will stretch you! I enjoy the work but wait for the cons.

    Cons

    Management lack of people skills. Although good business acumen, management treats employees like crap. No coaching skills at all.. many have moved on because of treatment.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon (Cardiff, Wales (UK)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    the interview was quick, easy and the questions weren't that difficult to answer. They didn't seem to want in depth answers or so. They emailed me to say I had gotten the job a day after the interview.
