Avoid at all costs

Workplace is very stressful , too many hours, too less carers, too many stressfull oncalls (for some) that you are pressured to do It doesn't matter if you do a good job- if you are on their bad books , you might as well resign as nothing you do will be appreciated. Office politics are rife. Pay is not the best and somehow, those who do not do much of the work seem to get the higer rates.

Cons

NO employee benefits/support

Care worker

I have been working in Alpenbest Care for 2 months and overall I really like the job. The management team has helped me throughout the process a lot. Any request I make to the company they have helped me so far. The working hours and the salary are correct and upon your working hours you can balance your private life and work. In conclusion, the team is really friendly and supportive.

work and free time

I have been working for alpenbest for 3 months and based on my experience so far, everything is fine. Salary is correct, working hours are correct. everything officially goes. Whatever request I make to the company, they have always been helpful so far. During all this time, I am maximally satisfied. There is a good balance between working time and leisure which is important to me.

Very good place to work and well manged

I am working for Alpenbest Care for 5 years, I am very please with the management and colleagues. Alpenbest gave me the opportunity to learn and progress. our management works very hard to have in place a very strong system for Covid19, there are plenty personal equipment for all the care workers to be protected and to protect the service users. The care workers are very happy with this support.

Supportive company

The management is very supportive and it is a very good company to work for, if you are willing to earn more money with working hard. The balance between the private life and work is not optimal as the working days are very long, usually from 7am to 9/10pm. The traffic in Guildford is terrible during the day, this can hold you back from being in time. On the other hand if you want to be protected and supported by the management, here you definitely get it.

More friendly but less organised company.

I got this job when I was quite new in UK an my English was poor.It was a big help to start my carer job with them in 2014. I spent 3 years working for this firm. I'm really greatful for it. The wage was paid correctly every week.

Lot of travelling to do & not a very friendly company.

It was quite a pleasant company to work for but I found the travelling from one destination to another very tiring as I was a carer and went to different people homes.

Equal Opportunity

Organizational structure is laid back because you can always approach the top management team anytime you need help. They have establish process especially with policies.

Good place to work

I joined Alpenbest 4 years ago, started with no experience, the training that was provided alongside shadowing helped me understand the role better. Working as a carer is not easy but helping elderly people and seeing them happy gives a lot of satisfaction. If someone wants to progress and is willing to learn, can go really far. Started as a care worker and lastly joined office team. Lots of training, friendly, supportive team, flexible job...highly recommend

Not the best Employer

Sometimes you have 14 hours day work and very dificult clients The most important problem is job culture and managment They are recruiting all people and it doesn't matter qualification.

Amazing worplace,

I loved working with Alpenbest and if it were not for certain circumstances in my life I would probably still work there. The environment is great, and there is a real progression path. If you want to progress and are willing to learn you can go really far. When I first joined I started as a care coordinator and then 3 years later I was a Finance Manager.

Pros

Great Progression, never a boring day, amazing team

Cons

Sometimes can get very busy and work can interfere with personal life
