Plenty of hours, busy and different experiences. Most pubs have friendly teams and are easy to get along with.
Pay isn’t great for the amount of work you do and sometimes treated as less.

This company strives on internal training and progressive scheme to management. Multiple courses offered at all levels by respective pubs for their employees. Depending on where you are, free meals and drinks can be included.
With any shift work in this industry the hours are long and often can feel like it's not worth the pay. Work/life balance difficult to maintain

Autonomy in site to run as you see fit Once you have the connections you can I fluence change positively
Pay is poor by industry standards with the argument made training makes up for this Regularly told that a real term pay cut to move up is just 'how it is' by those above Improvement in GM work/life balance has not happened Different ops departments seem to attack each other rather than help the pubs advance

as most hospitality work the schedule was very flexible, the pay is weekly which is nice. I think everyone's experience will be different depending on management but mine for this was amazing. I had brilliant management and a team that felt like a family i couldn't as for more. Pay is pretty average for the job and service charge gets added on so in christmas season the pay is usually better.
Can have some long shifts but they give you longer breaks for this so it's okay. Can be a tiring and physical job.Fuller's Response7mo

Good tronc Great floor team Discount at other pubs Hours are flexible if you have other priorities
Head office are greedy and overbook the pub and then won’t pay for enough staff to work. Many hours have been cut during the busy season which make it impossible for the pub to function. Bullying from management to lower staff members. Formal complaints never addressed. Management don’t seem to care about their employees even though they are the ones carrying the workload. Very few opportunities for progression No staff meals

Great people, training, tips(depending on location). Good flexibility. Great app to make your rota and pay easy and manageable. Great training opportunities available for all.
Base pay could be more generous but with tronc it usually ends up being a fair wage.

- The service charge you take home depends upon hours, which incentivises employees to work more hours to increase the take-home pay. - The company has some great graduate schemes for those that are interested in pursuing a career in hospitality. Free beer is always appreciated. - Good holiday pay is always nice for a bartending job. - The company offers a gym discount for staff.
- Managers are not paid enough for the amount of work the role entails. - Live-in managers are expected to sacrifice every day off to help the business. - Despite the initiatives apparently in place to incentivise senior staff to go in-store, head office seems very detached from the reality of working in a pub. - The low pay attracts people unable to work anywhere else, which means that the working environment is often filled with unmotivated, unwilling staff. - Bad workplace ethos where laziness, an unwillingness to communicate, and simply turning up leads to promotion by merit of not leaving. Don't expect hard work to pay off in terms of promotion and pay rises; loyalty, or rather sticking it out, is rated much higher than talent and skill. - Good staff members who recognise the issues often leave to go elsewhere for better pay and more-professional colleagues, which means that only the unfit are left to work. This, unfortunately, creates a significant double-blind where new staff members are trained by unfit members of staff. Linking into the workplace ethos point, it's a case of the blind lead by the stupid and lazy. - Management blindly follow antiquated rules that, at times, seem to have no grounding in day-to-day practices. - Working a split shift often devours the entire day for staff.2
