    I worked at William Hill full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Have to say that William Hill had a very employee friendly culture with awesome work life balance. QA management was really good probably the best I have seen so far.

    Probably some more time should be spent in getting a strong test automation culture.

    I worked at William Hill full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Okay pay with overtime available most weeks.

    Cons

    No HR support. Hard to obtain and understand the digital payslip. Poor management. No work life balance. Expected to do overtime with no notice. People always go sick. Endless reporting to do. Unhygienic shops. Terrible customers. Don't get paid if you have to stay later than 10:10. Unexpected tax hit of £125 per year on an oyster if you buy it. No room for promotion. Better off working as an intern for an upstanding company.
