    I worked at J D Wetherspoon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Overall I had quite a positive time, initially starting as a Team Member I was able to progress within 3 months, and had plenty of opportunity to keep moving upward. It is dependant on management, but all flexibility requests to rota's were generally approved. I was able to switch between 25 hours and 45 quite easily. At my time, there was a policy in place to ensure no single staff member (applying to management too) was rota'd for more than 7 (or 9?) consecutive days. It was possible to gain overtime through shift swapping, and quite a bit of it. Team-leader responsibilities were generally fulfilling, being able to make suggestions and see changes quickly was a great feeling. Discounts to food and drink make a world of difference whilst on shift, and are a great benefit when socialising. Staff incentives were also quite nice, app sale targets and monthly audit bonuses provide a decent extra wage. Team members, through all the locations I worked at, got along quite well and generally provided a positive enviroment to help you get through a shift. HR act on requests quickly, and effective procedures are in place to ensure everyone is treated fairly.

    Cons

    Upon transferring to a very different town, it was noticeable that not all pubs are made equal. Responsibility remained the same, but the way in which one was treated by management leaves a bitter taste. Some venues are vastly better than others in terms of management.
