Not great
  • Contracts don’t match the hours people work

    Only some people work the same number of hours they’re contracted for

    How we know this

    72% of people report working 8 hours or more than they’re contracted for each week

    Based on information from 130 job reviews

    Why this matters

    At a good job, you should expect to work about the same number of hours that your contract guarantees you, most of the time.

    It’s useful to pick up or drop a few shifts here and there, but if you often work a lot more hours every week than you’re contracted for, a good job should guarantee them.

    This means you’re more likely to know when you’ll be working and how much you’ll earn in advance.

    Based on information from 143 job reviews

    Why this matters

    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.
