  • Only some people get sick pay

    Do Aston Martin pay sick pay?

    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.

    Pay hours and working on nice cars

    Worst thing

    Not being retired

    8.6

    Aston Martin Employee, September 2020

  • Best thing

    Just the brand

    Worst thing

    Everything is ridiculous. Excessive pressure to work at an unreasonable pace and no communication about whats actually happening in the company. False promises and lies about being able to progress. None of the middle management have any idea on how to actually run a manufacturing factory.
