  • Sick Pay  (15 comments)

    “Sick pay is extremely fair, sometimes a little too lenient with people taking advantage”

  • Employee Discount  (10 comments)

    Benefits package is brilliant, holidays increase by a day each year after 2 years in service, great discounts on products. Only down side is private health care isn't available to anyone under a Grade D.

    The company perks are fantastic! You get acces to a benefits website that gets you money off of many shops, cinemas, restaurants etc and there is also a deposit scheme which means that the co op will pay your deposit for your new property and you can pay it off over a certain period of time out of your paycheques. You also get 10% off all purchases at the co op (apart from cigarettes and fuel) including co op electrical and co op travel and 20% on pay day weekends. There are many more benefits to working at co op and it is actually pretty fantastic.
