Senior management are the worst I’ve ever worked for

Some of the homes are lovely to work in and the staff are lovely. The culture they’ve adapted in the senior management is a disgrace l, and with their lack of knowledge of the role for working with young people it has hindered their ability to deal with the care aspect. The company needed massive improvements when I got their and did well until a new senior management team was put in place. It’s a shame as the owners are lovely people and they actually care about the kids and the staff.

Pros

Lovely owners, some benefits, good pay

Cons

Long hours, expected to work all hours and drop your life and petty attitudes to certain things

Very fun place to work

Diverse events give every working day new experiences and it is enjoyable to work. Working with new people every couple of shifts give more knowledge of how to work with different types of people.

professional and fun work environment

I spent 2 months working as a labourer on a temporary contract. I learnt health and safety procedures, and enjoyed working as part of a team.

A great workplace and an enjoyable experience

Overall, working at Athena has taught me many life lessons as well as technical skills. It was a very enjoyable place of work, but unfortunately has closed down. In my time at Athena i learned that i thrive off being a team member in the workplace, i have made some great friends with some of my old colleagues. however i have learned how to be independent and also a good problem solver. I learned to work the till, handle cash, teach new members of staff how to use the till and deal with deliveries and stock control. The most difficult aspect of being a sales assistant at Athena was when it was a very quite weekday and we happened to be overstaffed. in this sort of situation i like to keep busy and i have learned how to create tasks for myself. My favorite aspect of the job was being able to create such great relationships with the customers, we had a lot of regulars and reoccurring custom, and i found it very rewarding to be able to have face to face interaction with our customers.

Pros

Made some great friends and learned retail skills

Cons

not very many hours available.

Productive and very encouraging atmosphere

Working at Athena was a pleasure. The typical day at work would include late hours however due to excellent atmosphere. The management was also on very high standard, which mad the work challenging but relaxing as well. The hardest part of the job was to provide excellent customer service to the customers between the meals during the shows as the waitress could't disturb the show. The hob overall was very enjoyable.
