  • 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 you tier. The company however in cases of serious illness have automatically reset the sickness to the best tier. This system helps people who are genuinely ill and not those who abuse the system.

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!

Former COUNTER SALES in Wolverhampton, England

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

Current Sales Representative in Chatham, England

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.

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.
