    I worked at J D Wetherspoon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great for flexible work Discounted alcohol, food and hotel

    Cons

    Overworked if full time Not suitable to those looking for career in bartending Management and training lackluster High employee turnover

    Advice to Management

    Ensure training is better so senior staff aren't overworked as much and look after the full time members of staff as much as the college students.
