    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at J D Wetherspoon full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great salary 40 hour working week 5% of your salary in free shares each year Flexible (to an extent) Company will put you through university Free food & a drink whilst on shift 20% discount when off-duty

    Cons

    Literally takes blood, sweat & tears from you Often not permitted enough staff, causing extreme stress and pressure Not permitted to employ door staff which can make you feel unsafe at times Too much focus on money and cutting costs, little time for anything other than running the operation e.g. training, people development Lack of progression opportunities when you reach Pub Manager level

    Advice to Management

    Lack of hours available can have damaging affects on staff's mental health.
