I'm starting working at wetherspoons tomorrow whilst I wait for a training date for another job I'm going for. Now the pay is reasonable for what it is (£5.80, I was expecting minimum wage) and It's good experience to throw on a CV - but I'm starting to get a bit concerned about a few things I've read on the internet, that it's somehow a really bad company to work for and the working conditions are terrible.
I'm not going to lie to you, I need the money and I need to get working again. It's been hard enough to get a job anywhere at the min and I've been trying for months finally to get this break. As I said, the money isn't terrible for bar staff, especially since I have no prior experience in that field.
So what I'm asking is, has anyone worked for wetherspoons before? Do they give you plenty of hours? Whats with all the bad comments I've read regarding them as an employer?
