What people are saying about sick pay at Go Ape

  • Best thing

    Fun and interesting role. Great working outside when weather is good. Meet some interesting people.

    Worst thing

    Head office don’t understand or appreciate how hard we work. Hours are varied, don’t know how long your day will be until it’s over and you don’t know when it’ll start until the day before. Long and lots of shifts in Summer but can have a real lack of work outside of that. Very short breaks that get interrupted at times. Have to rely on team for support, one or two people not pulling their weight can ruin your day and break opportunities. Customers can sometimes be very rude and head office don’t support how we’re treated yet they’re the ones on salary with regular secure pay.
