    I worked at Stonegate Pub Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some good colleagues, pay was ok.

    Cons

    Minimum wage, lazy managers and supervisors that kept ducking out for smoke breaks, never got a break but got breaks that I should have had docked out of my pay.

    Advice to Management

    Look after your bar staff and make sure they get a break! Also, stop letting staff disappear for smoke breaks when it gets busy!

      Decent progression Alright hours for bar work, never too late. Staff discount

      Cons

      Poor salary up till Deputy Manager Like most jobs it all comes down to who you work with and who your manager is.

      Advice to Management

      Review your GM's regularly, just because they've been with the company a long time doesnt mean they're good at their job...

      I worked at Stonegate Pub Company full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Had 50% discount off food and drinks for staff once a year for a month (the only staff incentive they had). Also they had a staff menu which had cheap food for staff to have during their break.

      Cons

      Staff are worked into the ground on minimum wage, all that matters is the staff higher up the chain getting their pay checks and bonuses. I heard the people at the top get helicopter rides to meetings while we are scrubbing toilets for just over £5 an hour and working 12+ hour shifts every day, not finishing til 2am sometimes when we only get paid til 12:30!! Surely that can’t be legal. Also we were only allowed 20 minutes...

      Advice to Management

      Train your managers properly about sexual harassment in the work place!! Also create more staff incentives so people aren’t calling in sick all the time because they can’t face coming in. Staff were passing out on shift and having mental breakdowns and then being told to get back on the bar because there was no time for that - sort it!! Staff are allowed to be spoken to in a derogatory manner by customers, happens in...
