7/10

The salary is a decent amount for someone who has just left school as it is enough to pay for board to parents for living costs, since busses and taxis are cheap the travel coats are affordable, i think the salary definitely meets and covers costs as long as you can handle your money and don't spend it all at one time.

As savers is a supporter of the charity Marie curie, we do activities to raise money for them, along with deals and discounts for gyms and shops, savers is a great place of work for classes and clubs outside of work.
