Based on information from 10 job reviews
A good job is flexible around your personal life. This means you get a say in when you prefer to work.
Most people get enough training when they start
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.

If you’d recommend your team to a friend, this shows that something’s going right.
