    I worked at J D Wetherspoon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    JD Wetherspoon tends to employ young people, who are just working there part-time whilst studying, or over the summer only, this creating new friendships with people. Decent pay too.

    Cons

    Management is under a lot of pressure, which reflects on the associates. Everyone tends to be stressed out or just upset. Working for the company for 4 years, I haven't met a person who enjoyed working at the company. And I have seen a lot of people come and go (some not even lasting one shift)

    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
