Great Whitbread discount, pension and healthcare, poor company car scheme
the worst thing is you dont get any sick pay if you work for the company less than 1 year, after one 1 year you get paid your sickness. but first 3 days are unpaid
costa give hoilday 28 days include bank holiday. But it's hard to use when you want.
loads of work perks and discounts within the company itself. Private pension and good amount of companies respecting the discounts.
Discounts on major stores that have contract with Costa or are part of Whitbred Group. Another benefit scheme - If the store does well the employees should get some points that they can use to buy stuff online. In theory very good but in practice, the employees are given unrealistic targets that are impossible to reach and some even out of their control.
Time off was quite flexible because it was a zero hours contract - just gave manager advance notice of when I could and could not work
good benefits for non cash bonus such as gift card money for many high street shops
Discounted food on shift. Although not allowed, we where often given free food and drinks if they where going out of date
The best thing is the 50% discount on other Whitbread companies such as Premier Inn, and free drinks on shift. Unfortunately holiday and time off must be requested 4-5 weeks in advance, and cannot be granted at the busiest periods such as Christmas.
If you are a barista or barista maestro you will just gain some virtual points where you can buy something of your choice. But you will get those points only depending from your store performance. Holidays pay is good,
