  • Best thing

    All the staff and managers in the store are friendly and approachable and will help if you need help.

Bad
  • Less than 4 weeks notice of shifts

    How we know this

    • 43% report getting one week notice or less
    • 38% report getting two weeks notice
    • 10% report getting three weeks notice
    • 10% report getting four weeks notice or more
    • 0% report having a fixed rota

    Based on information from 21 job reviews

    Why this matters

    At a good job, you get plenty of notice about when you’re working.

    This makes it easy for you to plan the rest of life, as well as your finances, because you know how much you’ll be working and when.

Not great
  • Contracts don’t match the hours people work

    How we know this

    68% of people report working 8 hours or more than they’re contracted for each week

    Based on information from 19 job reviews

    Why this matters

    At a good job, you should expect to work about the same number of hours that your contract guarantees you, most of the time.

    It’s useful to pick up or drop a few shifts here and there, but if you often work a lot more hours every week than you’re contracted for, a good job should guarantee them.

    This means you’re more likely to know when you’ll be working and how much you’ll earn in advance.

  • People worry about getting enough hours

    How we know this

    62% of people report they worry about getting enough hours

    Based on information from 21 job reviews

    Why this matters

    At a good job, you shouldn’t have to worry about getting enough hours each week.

    A good job should guarantee you a minimum number of hours in a contract, if you want it.

    This makes it easier to plan your finances, because you know how much you’ll be earning.

Good
  • Good choice of shifts

    How we know this

    71% report that their manager gives them enough choice over which shifts they work

    Based on information from 21 job reviews

    Why this matters

    A good job is flexible around your personal life. This means you get a say in when you prefer to work.

Excellent
  • Easy to book holiday

    How we know this

    94% of people report it’s easy to book holidays

    Based on information from 16 job reviews

    Why this matters

    A good job should let you take time off when you need it, and it shouldn’t be a nightmare to arrange.

  • Easy to take sick leave

    How we know this

    100% of people report that it’s easy to take time off if they are sick

    Based on information from 16 job reviews

  • No short notice shift changes

    How we know this

    15% of people say their manager changes their shifts at the last minute

    Based on information from 13 job reviews

    Why this matters

    If your manager is often changing your shifts at short notice that’s a sign of poor planning. At a good job you won’t be messed around at the last minute.

  • People get proper breaks

    How we know this

    79% of people report that they get to take proper breaks

    Based on information from 19 job reviews

    Why this matters

    When you take a break it should be a proper rest. It should last the full duration and you shouldn’t get pulled off it.

  • No unpaid extra work

    How we know this

    0% of people report that they do extra work that they don’t get paid for

    Based on information from 19 job reviews

    Why this matters

    Everyone should get paid for any extra work they do, even if it is outside your contracted hours. At a good job, you should be paid for all the time you spend at work.

Here’s a recent review that mentions hours:

  • Best thing

  • No career progression

    How we know this

    In the last year, 42% of people report being given an opportunity to get better at their job, learn a new skill, learn to manage a team or get more responsibility in their role

    Based on information from 12 job reviews

    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.

Good
  • Enough training

    How we know this

    68% of people report they got enough training when they started working here

    Based on information from 19 job reviews

    Why this matters

    A good job should give you good training when you start, not just drop you in at the deep end.

    This means that you’ll be happier and more productive from day one and shows that your employer values you.

    It’s also very important if your job involves anything that could be dangerous. Good training from the outset keeps you and your team safe.
