    I have been working at J D Wetherspoon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay for all levels and training opportunities (both online and in-class sessions) Flexibility in shifts and can suit people will all forms of commitments Over 850 pubs & hotels and a variety of areas to work in across the country Up to 19% of your salary can be earned in bonuses, with other company bonuses such as pension schemes, free shares, free food on shift and 20% discount off shift. Good working environments and provides a solid foundation to a good social life.

    Cons

    Can be long hours depending on level on trade and your role within the pub, you need to be prepared to start at 6am one day and finish at 2am the next day (however, usually applies to pub management employees). Can be quite mentally and physically draining due to high levels of trade within pubs and the job will not be for everyone.

    Pros

    Reasonably good pay for the industry Hours have been reduced in the last few years Area manager is a good guy

    Cons

    Have spent years improving associate perks but haven’t really done anything for salaried staff ‘It’s a people thing’ except it’s not really when it matters Gap between associate and manager pay is is smaller than it’s ever been Nothing extra for overtime or working after midnight unlike hourly staff Free food options have been reduced Tim’s propaganda Post Covid has been hell on earth with no real support from HO, they care more about customers than the safety of staff
