Based on information from 42 job reviews

Why this matters

Good
27% of people report that they do extra work that they don’t get paid for

Based on information from 132 job reviews

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.

Usually. Most people get proper sick pay

Good
53% of people say they would get paid if they were sick but scheduled to work

Based on information from 151 job reviews

Why this matters

Everyone gets sick sometimes. You should be able to take time off without worrying.

At a good job you should still get paid if you’re scheduled to work but can’t due to sickness. Your contract should say how many sick days you can take each year.

This is more than the legal minimum, which says you should only get paid if you are unwell for 4 full days. See Citizens Advice for more details.

Usually. Most people get paid breaks

Good
51% of people say they get paid breaks

Based on information from 176 job reviews

Why this matters

A good job should have paid breaks.

You should be paid for all your time at work, whether you’re on a break or not.
