2009-07-20 10:04:33

When it comes to looking for an hourly job, we often ask ourselves “What is this going to pay?” and “Will the schedule work?” But how do you know if a company offers fair pay, a flexible work schedule and a number of other workplace attributes that make for a good work environment? To help answer that question, we evaluated specific jobs by company where hourly pay is how the majority of these employees are compensated and analyzed the company ratings to see who gets high marks in terms of: career opportunities, communication, compensation & benefits, employee morale, recognition & feedback, senior leadership, work/life balance, and fairness & respect.

Two companies rose to the top of the list, Apple and Starbucks, both receiving a satisfied rating from current or former hourly employees.

On a side note, it could get pretty interesting for hourly retail employees interested in technology now that Microsoft plans to increase its retail presence and open up stores next to Apple stores – this announcement will likely bring about more jobs and keep pay and other benefits pretty competitive and attractive for these retail workers.

Other companies, with 50 or more reviews, that receive neutral ratings from hourly employees include: Best Buy, Target, CVS Caremark, Walgreen, Lowe’s, Home Depot and WalMart.
