    I worked at J D Wetherspoon part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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 .
