A typical day would consist of serving drinks and helping floor staff clean up tables.
I learned a lot regarding how a bar is run, what the rules of wastage are and how to efficiently organize myself.
The management at my particular pub relied on my co-workers to train me, whilst I was able to quickly learn what to do, there were many things I did not know and well into my fifth week there, I was still asking my coworkers for help. This does not mean all Wetherspoons pubs are like this because the pub down the road had much better training for its staff.
The hardest part of the job was closing, one thing you are not told is that you stop being payed after 1am, therefore you have to ensure the bar is clean and ready for the next day as quickly as possible.
The most enjoyable part of the job were the clients, they were always interesting, friendly and fun to talk to.
Flexible working hours
Disorganized management, poor training
