  • Sick Pay  (3 comments)

    “Sick pay is worked out on a tier system the less time you take the better. If you take a lot of time off you have to improve your sickness to improve...”

    Managers use their discretion with time off especially in the case of attend school events. Usually this was because you had done a little extra time but mostly this time was not expected to be repaid.

    Can’t really see any huge benefits apart from finishing work at 17:00!

    Worst: Holidays - Bank holidays are all added to your holiday and all deducted, regardless of if we have passed a particular bank holiday - that's all wrong.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Northampton, England

    Benefits for central, office-based staff are very competitive. Decent pension allowance which increases with pay grade, 25 days holiday, life assurance, flexible start and finish times and a range of softer benefits (discounted health insurance, away days to recognise performance, free drinks and snacks, childcare vouchers, etc). There's also a generous bonus scheme (10 - 15 % of salary typically) and company car (with fuel card) or a car allowance is offered to management positions, even relatively junior management roles.

    There are lots of opportunities to participate in events but can be selective choice of people, raises some peoples hopes of furthering themselves

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Warehouse Operative in Stourbridge, England

    To start off, Howdens Joinery has a fantastic Bonus Scheme in place. If you hit your targeted sales and margin by the end of the period (month), it is very rewarding. We also have a Company pension in place which is a lot better than your standard workplace pension. You get plenty of Holiday days especially around Easter and Christmas time as we like to flow with trade working hours/days. There is also a lot more benefits you can receive like discounts off your phone contract and even a car.
