The biggest benefit I had working at Howdens was the investment in my development.
Can’t really see any huge benefits apart from finishing work at 17:00!
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.
ok, bit stressful at times due to unrealistic targets
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.
very good benefits, no bad points
There is no benifits package. You can buy the product for your own use at 80% discount. when doing the saturday morning you might get treated to a maccys breakfast
Very reliable, very easy to find & given straight from the start. Always willing to help.
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
