Pay

    Okay
  • Some people do unpaid extra work

    Do workers at Kumon do extra work that they don't get paid for?

    Sometimes. Some people do unpaid extra work.

    How we know this

    50% of people report that they do extra work that they don’t get paid for.

    Based on data from 10 people who took the Breakroom Quiz between April 2020 and June 2022.

    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.

  • Bad
  • Most people don’t get sick pay

    Do Kumon pay sick pay?

    No. Most people don’t get proper sick pay.

    How we know this

    100% of people say they wouldn’t get paid if they were sick but scheduled to work.

    Based on data from 10 people who took the Breakroom Quiz between April 2020 and June 2022.

    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.

Hours and flexibility

    Good
  • Most people don’t worry about their hours

    Do workers at Kumon worry about hours?

    Most people don’t worry about getting enough hours.

    How we know this

    70% of people report they don’t worry about getting enough hours.

    Based on data from 10 people who took the Breakroom Quiz between April 2020 and June 2022.

    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.

  • Only some people get enough training

    Do people get enough training when they start at Kumon?

    Some people did’t get enough training when they started.

    How we know this

    40% of people report they didn’t get enough training when they started working here.

    Based on data from 10 people who took the Breakroom Quiz between April 2020 and June 2022.

    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.

  • Okay

    Based on data from 10 people who took the Breakroom Quiz between April 2020 and June 2022.

    Why this matters

    A good job means enjoying the place where you work.

    The people you work with every day really matter. They can be the difference between a terrible day and a great one.

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