Reviews about Pay & benefits for Catering Assistant at Care UK Residential Care Services

Wouldn’t recommend.

I have been working at Care UK since October and can honestly say it is not a company I’d ever work for again. Have been trying to find a new job for months. The home is open 365 days a year so I find that all the important holidays I want to spend at home, I’m working. The salary for catering assistants is £ 7.83 an hour in the weekdays and £ 8.13 for the weekends. For the amount we do in the kitchen and with the littlest breaks- this is just not really a good amount of money to be earning when you are working 12 hour shifts on your feet all day. Also the staff are rude and if you make the littlest mistake like forget one thing the carers complain and moan at you. You never once get a thanks from them. And the management is all over the place. They create unecessary tasks ie: wash cutlery and trolleys at 10am and then at 11am. By the time we finish this it’s 11am and then carers are bringing down trolleys in our lunch break. The management at the Care home I work at has changed 3 times in the space of 8 months. And the management are rude. There are also a lot of staff leaving for the same reasons. The elderly people who live there are neglected due to the number of short staff and generally I would never put any of my family in a Care UK Care home let alone ever work there again after seeing the way it’s run and seeing how lazy the staff can be. Some of the carers hide in the residents room and have a chit chat to them instead of of working.

Pros

None.

Cons

Long hours, Rude staff, Short Breaks, Low breaks, No flexibility, Short staffer, Overworked.
