    Why this matters

    A good job should help you progress at work, if you want to. That might be supporting you to get better at the job you currently have, learn something new, manage a team or take on more responsibilities.

    This means you’ll be able to build on your skills and experience, and earn more money.

    At a good job, there should be a supportive relationship between the people working on the frontline serving customers and the people who own the company or work in head office.

    You should be kept informed about how the company is doing as a whole, both in good times and when things get tough for the business.

    Adidas Employee, May 2022

  • Best thing

    30% off in store

    Worst thing

    They put us on random shifts (no schedule). Put us on shifts when we have already said we can’t work them. Don’t give us an option to accept over time, we just have to do it, then when we ask for time off or change out availability they say no even if we have already completed our contracted hours. The managers let some staff get away with things that others can’t because they’re friends. The managers don’t speak to us with respect at all. They expect us to do 100 jobs at once and it’s never good enough. One manager tells you to do one thing and the other tells you another. When you did what your told it’s wrong and not good enough. The management is so poor!
