    I worked at J D Wetherspoon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Really easy to get a footing on how to do the job. Generally most people in the job are young and around similar ages making it easy to get along with, even if you're a bit older everyone get's along really well with everyone.

    Cons

    Depending on the size of the pub it could be difficult to move up career wise. If it's a small pub generally any staff that have made it to manager stay there making it along time before you can go to the next level.

    The management team are a friendly , encouraging , fast pace team that are always pushing their staff to the best of their abilities because they want what is best with us. I’d say the Rotas are quite flexible and they try their best to fit the rotas to our best interest. You get payed weekly.

    Cons

    Can be short staffed so can be stressful . Hours can be unsociable.
