Anna Maybank, CEO and co-founder of Breakroom commented;
“We believe everyone deserves a good job and Breakroom is here to help make sure they get it. Rather than just simply getting people to rate their job like a movie or a toaster purchase we ask the questions that really matter to job seekers, like ‘how much are you paid per hour’ ‘how much notice do you get for your shifts?’, ‘is this job good for students’, ‘are shifts flexible’ and ‘does your manager treat you with respect?’. From this quiz, we produce a Breakroom score for their job and an employer rating they can trust, meaning you can find a good job that meets your needs. A good job should allow you to fit work around important things in your life, like studying. Life isn’t just about work and having a good job means you have space for you to do well in both.”
