    I have been working at J D Wetherspoon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great pay, good fun, rewarding and achievable progress into management, should you want to go for it.

    Cons

    Understaffing is a huge problem, cutting down on staff costs cause low pub standards at times, other than that I can’t complain about anything else!

    Advice to Management

    No advice I can think of, the management at my pub is brilliant.
