    I worked at Mitchells & Butlers part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good atmosphere and good staff Drink and food benefits offered by pub manager Good holiday allowance received

    Cons

    No contact with senior pub management to know what was going on Pub was being steered in the wrong direction and turning more towards food that it's traditional purpose

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with all lower down staff and realise that not all pubs should be heading int he same direction

    I have been working at Mitchells & Butlers full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Albeit issues with rotas, generally the hours you want to do depending on the manager you currently have is generally quite easy to obtain, although your hours will be cut on quiet periods.

    Cons

    There always problems with next weeks rotas being posted the night before the next working week starts, which makes it pretty difficult to actually make plans with friends/family etc It also generally has a high turn over of staff, which can get quite annoying retraining people and tasks never getting done due to the lack of training. There also doesn't seem much room to grow professionally. There also isn't much...

    Advice to Management

    A better way to sign in and out would help get rid of any pay problems and management being more strict on when rotas are done, as the staff also have lives too.

    I have been working at Mitchells & Butlers full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Not many! I suppose you can "steal" a bacon sandwich when you run out of food at home due to lack of money.

    Cons

    Ive been employed for 16 years at M&B (14 full-time), and i still earn minimum wage despite working very hard for my employer. Promotion is next to impossible (they prefer to hire already trained/experienced staff from outside the company to fill management roles) If your desperate for some money its not so bad - if u actually want a career or standard of living - steer well clear.

    Advice to Management

    You have to spend money to make money! Low wages and old broken down equipment may save you "some" money - but in the long run, its just going to cost you even more!!!
