    I worked at J D Wetherspoon

    Pros

    If I’m honest the only pros is possibly the discount on food but only whilst on shift

    Cons

    Unfortunately my time here was awful, management is greedy , rude and no respect what so ever, the pay is minimum wage and if you work on a Friday and Saturday night be prepared to stay behind after you’re meant to finish for free to clean up and this is without any extra pay, when I worked here I had to stay for an extra 40minutes on a Saturday night and when I got paid I didn’t receive any extra money when I questioned...

    Advice to Management

    Don’t even know where to start! Respect you’re staff, don’t take short cuts.

    I have been working at J D Wetherspoon full-time for 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
