Community Team Manager in Bradford-on-Avon
My years at Abicare.I’ve been working with abicare in BOA for many years, I’m using this space as open and honest review. Overall I believe abicare is a lovely place to work because you can choose your own hours to suit you as long as it covers the requirements which is 2 evenings and every other weekend. As a whole we have a lovely clientele even though it can have Challenging moments, That’s what makes care so special. When your caring for clients you can come out feeling rewarded as you know you have made a positive impact on a vulnerable person’s life but in any care sector there is negative’s but with abicare there are more positives than good. The positives are: Supportive management, working as a team, making a difference to clients by enabling them to live in the comfort of their own homes, opportunities to progress within your career to become a senior key worker, community team supervisor or even a community manager and being paid travel and mileage to your calls. Of course within the care industry there is negative things such as: When running late due to being held up it can cause impacts to the rest of the day, low staffing so being asked to pick up shifts but with abicare there is no pressure if you don’t want to, There can be challenging clients but most are not and with this we’ll always remain supportive and professional at all times with the clients so they feel like have got a positive support system all around them and within the care industry it can be quite demanding but rewarding.
Care Assistant in Swindon, Wiltshire
a workplace and culture to avoid First off, management do NOT listen to staff at all. If you have an issue, rather than management helping you they are very rude and unhelpful. The service users are not paired appropriately at all in which making your job harder. If you have any concerns or issues then don’t expect to be helped unless you are one of the managers favourites.The work place can often be segregated into groups of people which can cause the environment to be hostile. Everything you say WILL be repeated to others and both staff and managers like to stir the pot.The service users are lovely but expect to see them a lot as you WILL have unwanted shifts added.

Poor Management, refused days offThe Management is poor, they add to your rota and don’t tell you. I was made to work 11+ days without a single day off and was then told that it was because of what I put down on availability. They don’t take any notice of the Availability. Constant calls and messages to ask if you can cover shifts everyday. Favouritism in the work force. Out for 8hrs a day but only get paid 5/6hrs. No breaks in between to stop and have something to eat or rest.
