What people are saying about sick pay at Timpson

  • Best thing

    Left to your own devices

    Worst thing

    Poor pay, stressful fast paced environment, most people work alone , nobody to bounce off or back you up, no proper breaks, no toilets, highly unlikely to be able to book your holidays when you desire, constant rubbish talk about how amazing the company are when it's not true, yes it has perks but not easy to receive them contrary to popular belief, work every Saturday and a lot of Sundays, such a great company but even at Christmas they make you work bank holiday only giving you 2 days off, if they cared about the staff they wouldn't make them do this, if you are thinking of working for timpson don't do it
