I got my first paid job at my local wetherspoon pub. First of all, I was asked to travel over 90 minutes away for a 'paid' induction, which i never received payment for. My first month working there was fine, then it all began to go downhill. I was regularly called to cover shifts when other staff were sick, however the favour was not returned. I was left on the bar on my own on busy weekends, as other staff members were too busy talking to either other back of house. I was asked to work an extra 5 hours after a 6 hour shift with no break,which also resulted in me missing the last bus home as it was a weekday, and also said I needed to go early but wasn't allowed until the last customer had left. I was also asked if I would like to do kitchen and bar cross training which I agreed to, yet I was never offered any training. Overall, the main thing I enjoyed about the job was the staff I worked with, and the fact that I was payed weekly.
Paid weekly, higher pay than minimum wage
Unsociable, manager was unwilling to assist with queries
