    I have been working at J D Wetherspoon part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Unpretentious, easy work. Nice mixture of staff from different backgrounds and ages.

    Cons

    Rubbish tips but... it’s a cheap pub I guess. Bad policy on promotion to management- tends to favour longest serving rather than suitability for the job. Rubbish Owner and his right wing nonsense plastered all over the pubs, even he himself comes in sometimes and spouts that rubbish.

    Advice to Management

    To manage someone is a skill not a right of service

    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.

    I worked at J D Wetherspoon for more than a year

    Pros

    Gained friendships. Money off food on shift. You're always busy..

    Cons

    Zero hours contract so one week I could earn an amazing amount and the next be so broke I can't afford transport to and from work. Taxis as I did a lot of late shifts. Management allow bullying to take place. Management are supposed to back you up if someone is drunk or rude etc.. but in my experience they haven't done this at all. Promised the world promotion wise and they gave someone else the job that was lined...
