Poor head office management, fast paced, busy environment, pleasant customers, good staff to work with, fun work place, not a lot of chance to progress within the company as they don't allow this often

Overall good experience
Having been a head chef for a few years beforehand, Marston's had good induction procedures and a rigorous training programme.

The area managers were all friendly that I met and really were at the end of the phone if need be.


As with most high-street restaurant chains there is a high staff turn-over, but this provides a great vehicle for progression for the right candidates and entry level team members can easily find themselves moving up the 'ladder' as they gain experience.
Pros
Great staff discount
Cons
hard to get personal time with loved ones because of weekends, evenings or bank holidays

Challenging, but honest work
I was a Kitchen Assistant at a Marston's Gastropub for 9 months for my first job. I'm fairly certain that I was given the job by virtue of being the only person that applied, but nonetheless I gave it my all. Such positions are great for first-time workers/ students, provided you are willing to work hard, show up on time and negotiate with fellow staff members.

Chaos
From day one, very little coordination from senior management.
Mixed messages, depleted team, poor morale and so much more.

Job role was reasonably well defined but working regulations were almost impossible to adhere to.

Excellent culture and relaxed, happy and positive environment
I was employed as a technician, and loved every minute of it..
The people the culture there were excellent... just the job I needed at the time

The only reason I left was because I wasn't keen on the shift pattern at the time.. but since then the shifts have

changed for the better ,so I'm awaiting another opening opportunity so I can reapply

It was a great job with a brewery that actually cared about how good you did and helped you when you needed it.
The only problem was the job was just running like clockwork when we had to resign to care for my missuses mum.

Amazing company to work for!
Have previously worked for Wetherspoons for around 6 years and Marstons knocks spots off them! Much more appreciated by higher management, better work-life balance, much more relaxed environment. I dont ever see myself leaving.
