Bar Staff in Stewarton

It has its highs and lows
Working in the Smugglers can be fun, there are some sides to the job which really suck. Things like being able to take time off whenever you want it a great thing however, you can only do this if you can get someone to cover your shift. This is your responsibility to do so and not up to the owners. You also don't get holiday pay or sick pay. Your shifts are also set, if you agree to do certain days or shifts, then those are the shifts that you are going to work until someone else leaves or you permanently swap with another member of staff. The rest of the staff are great and we treat each other like family in a way, caring for each other and making sure we are all ok.

Interesting and New
I've never worked in a pub before and it was a very different role, staff are all friendly, manager is a nice person and fair to the staff, slowly improving and the pub will only get better with time.

owners/management are horrid
unfortunately not nice people to work for, the owners have no people skills or compassion for their staff. if they like you you’re fine but if your face doesn’t fit they’ll ignore you. chefs are rude and nasty, but you’re unable to speak in confidence about personal issues about other staff as they think the sun shines out of there bottom

Okay first job
It was okay, for me it was my first job. I would often get rushed when it was really busy and i was the only one washing up, even though it was obvious that I was stressing out. I didn't get any breaks because, to quote the manager, "I was paid by the hour."

Great people to work with
The people that work there and the customers are amazing and really easy to get along with, it truly feels like a family and you know that someone will always help you if you need to.
