Yes. People get paid accurately and on time

Excellent
7% of people report they have been paid late or the wrong amount

Based on information from 219 job reviews

Why this matters

It is important that you are paid correctly and on time - everyone has financial commitments and living expenses to keep on top of. At a good job, you shouldn't have to chase up any payments that are due to you.

No. People don’t do unpaid extra work

Excellent
24% of people report that they do extra work that they don’t get paid for

Based on information from 1,581 job reviews

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.

Not always. Most people don’t get proper sick pay

Not great
37% of people say they would get paid if they were sick but scheduled to work

Based on information from 1,714 job reviews

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.

No. People don’t get paid breaks

Bad
9% of people say they get paid breaks

Based on information from 1,917 job reviews

Why this matters

A good job should have paid breaks.

You should be paid for all your time at work, whether you’re on a break or not.
