    I worked at Stonegate Pub Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Live in accommodation available in some sites

    Cons

    Long hours spent having to deal with the Mugs, Thugs, and Drugs that frequent their Local Community sites. These Pubs trade,often, with no security available to the Manager Leaving the to deal with the Drug deal, violence etc. Stonegate must be aware that this is a major factor in the high churn in Manager, but prefer to turn a blind eye to this, leaving Managers to face the constant threat of impending violence

    Advice to Management

    Deliver much better support to your customer facing staff. You Directors and Senior Management team would not survive two minutes in pub environment that you expect Managers to work in.

    I worked at Stonegate Pub Company part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good work for part time

    Cons

    Poor management in my particular pub - don't think ours was unique in this though, minimum wage pay, pay seemed to be based on who the managers favoured rather than experience, length of service etc. Also I was made to sign a blank contract which is pretty bad.

    Advice to Management

    Have a policy for pay rises, watch your pub managers.

    I worked at Stonegate Pub Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Discount, which encourages off duty staff to distract staff whilst working

    Cons

    Just a number, do not care about physical or mental health of employees Money hungry Focused on only growing and do not take care of the teams they have Poor work life balance - minimum 48 hour contracts for salaried employees Little support - do the job to thei high expectations or get sacked Understaffed, always, all pubs and clubs, always cut back on staff

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on retaining your current and existing talent. Once trainees get to management get treated poorly and a general culture of poor work/life balance, poor mental health issues and work way to many hours. No consideration on the person, just the job they do, and a manager is only worth what his bottom line says, regardless of external factors and poor support from head office.

    You make the most of it by ensuring a good pub with a good team

    Cons

    Senior management and some GMs are extremely unprofessional and are just bully’s that push you to working riddiculous and illegal hours.

    Pros

    Fun staff, staff discounts, social,

    Cons

    Could be very boring when pub wasn't busy, low pay for a hard job, manager told me off in front of customers - very embarrassing On your feet all day, 12 hour shift = 45 minutes break

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat your staff like crap, they doing a horrible job for barely any pay.
