Didn’t make it past the training

I enjoyed the training but too many staff were not following their training techniques. Very clique place, unhappy staff. They do their best to put you off working there by complaining about the company. Hardest part of the job was seeing bad practice while shadowing staff. The most enjoyable part of the job was making the residents smile


Lovely residents


Toxic environment, witnessed bad carer practice

Stressful but rewarding

Most residents and staff nice to work with , though with staffing issues you can be pushed to your limits , so much work expected from you can have some extremely stressful shifts

Great company to work for

Great management, plenty of support. Clear policies and procedures to follow. Amazing team! They also offer nice perks - would come back if I could. Definitely a place to be.

Poor care standards and negative atmosphere

Although the pay is good the general atmosphere at work is not a positive one , old fashioned out dated care is practiced when there is nobody official around the day and night staff do not get on with each other as the staff who choose to work in the day expect most of the residents washed before they come in this is not in the residents best interests and goes against everything I believe as a carer I try to promote independence and dignity




Low work atmosphere

The person who left this position

Your will be met will false promises. Unbelievably unfair workload. Expect to be working on your own a lot. It’s definitely a out of site out of mind outlook from management. The pay is good and the work life balance is good but that is where the positives end.

Awful. Horrible place to work. Not good rate of pay for the job that we do. It hard work. Management not supportive. Activities are basically non existent.

Would not recommend

As with most large organisations, there are many cogs within the machine and perhaps I just encountered the worst of them.My experience with Care UK was incredibly negative, once I had actually been onboarded - which took almost 4 months from initial interview and acceptance of post. The management was neither supportive nor caring. The residents were not well cared for and the staff were mostly apathetic in their roles. I can only comment on my own experience of course, but if offered any role within this company, I would recommend that you consider it very carefully before accepting.

Lack of support

Hard work, always short staffed. Very clicky, competitive between staff, offered support and it never happened. Residents were lovely, always happy to go that extra mile for them.

They are very helpful and good and very understanding, if you need anything they always support you in that, in any way that they are able to do it, which is good about it.

Residents make it worth wild, management don’t care

Lured in with all the benefits, a couple of months down the line you are left to fend for yourself.Management don’t care, just interested in numbers, a few serious issues brought up but nothing done.Your ok if your in with management or team leaders.One rule for one, one for another. Only good thing is they are flexible with hours.Over worked expected to do more than you should. Atmosphere and tension between staff.


Hours flexible


Management. Atmosphere.

Not supportive

I have worked for CareUK for almost 3 years and every suggestion, report or complaint has not been taken seriously nor is it followed up. Management are rude and do not care about your mental or physical well-being as will keep physically aggressive residents even if they draw blood from staff, which has happened to me plenty of times. I have been told that it’s not managements problems if someone feels unwell and they will not properly allocate staff after finding out someone has called in sick but will pretend to. Staff are not part of a union and never will be so don’t expect any benefits. The work itself isn’t actually that bad and some care homes are good but it’s the management that is the issue so can’t really avoid it lol


Free lunch (even if it’s tasteless)


The management
