      I have been working at Marston's full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      great staff, great management team, discounted food and beverages, loads of chance for progression, more holidays then you get anywhere else, flexible hours of work, weekly pay, if you need more hours they will give you them if you need less they will help you out with that to, fair rate of pay and a really loving and caring business to be part of

      Cons

      sometimes the hours can be a bit longer than preferred, can get some right characters as customers

      Advice to Management

      hire the right staff and keep them there by giving them more benefits and more hours pay for the stress they get put under
