    I have been working at J D Wetherspoon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Shares, discount, good wage, bonus, pension, free meals on shift, health plan

    Cons

    High pressure for some, constant targets to meet

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on food delivery times and more on food being prepared to a correct spec, the rush to get food out puts staff under too much pressure and is unnecessary

    Interview

    Applied online and was working within a week. Really casual and relaxed. One problem i had was having the interview in the middle of the pub but just felt like a normal chat.
