What people are saying about sick pay at Marston’s

  • Best thing

    Staff meals, friendly team

    Worst thing

    No breaks sometimes, poor communication, very late nights, extremely entitled customers


    Marston’s Waitress, February 2024

  • Best thing

    Easy to book holidays
    I work with some of my best friends
    GM and AM’s are good managers
    Have a slightly more competitive pay than minimum wage

    Worst thing

    Long, unpaid breaks as a way to save the wage percentage
    Feel bad for calling in sick
    Expected to always work with minimal staff as possible on shifts, can lead to feeling stressed if the demand outways the staffing
    Work almost nearly every weekend, all weekend


    Marston’s Supervisor, January 2023

  • Best thing

    Discount on food

    Worst thing

    No breaks, treated like dirt on their shoe, feels like a prison,


    Marston’s Bar staff, December 2022

  • Best thing

    Discount on shift is the best it has to offer.

    Worst thing

    Managers are hard to work with, very stuck in their ways. Area managers try and get you to implement new things without thought of how it actually effects your pub. Don’t get paid breaks a lot of the time don’t have one just allowed to sit down and eat and that’s it. Expect you to do a lot more than what you’re paid for.
