    • 15% report getting four weeks notice or more
    • 8% report having a fixed rota

    Based on information from 65 job reviews

    Why this matters

    At a good job, the role of head office should be to support the people on the frontline serving customers.

    To do that properly, the company’s owners or head office need to have a good understanding of what’s really happening on the frontline. This is especially important when a company owns multiple locations.

  • People feel stressed

    How we know this

    57% of people say they often feel stressed at work

    Based on information from 72 job reviews

    Why this matters

Good

  • Enough training

    How we know this

    65% of people report they got enough training when they started working here

    Based on information from 69 job reviews

    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.

    How we know this

    31% of people say their manager changes their shifts at the last minute

    Based on information from 71 job reviews

    Why this matters

    64% of people say they are paid at or above the Real Living Wage for where they live

    Based on information from 66 job reviews

    Why this matters

    Everyone should be paid enough to live on.

    The Real Living Wage is a voluntary rate employers can sign up to that is based on the real cost of living.

    The Real Living Wage is currently £9.50 per hour, and £10.85 per hour in London.

  • People are paid market rates

    How we know this

    65% of people are paid average or more than the typical pay for the type of work they do

    Based on information from 55 job reviews

    Why this matters

    Based on information from 66 job reviews

    Why this matters

    This means you’ll be able to build on your skills and experience, and earn more money.

  • People get proper breaks

    How we know this

    67% of people report that they get to take proper breaks

    How we know this

    62% of people report that they would recommend working with their immediate team to a friend

    Based on information from 74 job reviews

  • People get sick pay

    How we know this

    67% of people say they would get paid if they were sick but scheduled to work

    Based on information from 69 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.

    How we know this

    39% of people report that they do extra work that they don’t get paid for

    Based on information from 61 job reviews

  • Well informed about head office

    How we know this

    65% of people feel that they are kept well informed about how the company is doing as a whole

    Based on information from 68 job reviews

    How we know this

    89% of people say they get paid breaks

    Based on information from 70 job reviews

    Why this matters

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

  • Good for students

    How we know this

    100% of students report this is a good place to work if you’re studying

    Based on information from 6 job reviews

    Why this matters

    A good job should allow you to fit work around important things in your life, like studying.

    Life isn’t just about work. Good jobs make space for you to do well in both.

    How we know this

    81% of people say they’re treated with respect by their managers

    Based on information from 64 job reviews

    How we know this

    24% of people report they worry about getting enough hours

    Based on information from 50 job reviews

    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.
