      I have been working at Stonegate Pub Company full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Good benefits for the team with 25% discount across all bars. Great HR team with powerful training courses at all levels

      Cons

      Cost cutting is limiting sales potential. Very reactive to finance and not enough credit given to the operations team on many occasions

      Advice to Management

      Allow the team to get on and do what they are paid to do

      Employee discounts in all company-owned pubs

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Stonegate Pub Company full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Some good colleagues, pay was ok.

      Cons

      Minimum wage, lazy managers and supervisors that kept ducking out for smoke breaks, never got a break but got breaks that I should have had docked out of my pay.

      Advice to Management

      Look after your bar staff and make sure they get a break! Also, stop letting staff disappear for smoke breaks when it gets busy!
