    Current Employee - Bar Associate 

    I have been working at J D Wetherspoon part-time

    Pros

    Competitive pay, flexible hours. Good bonus schemes.

    Cons

    Even though, hours are flexible and can be adjusted to your lifestyle, for some they are really unsociable. If you work in Lloyds, more than likely you'll always work Friday/Saturday night shifts.
