Not enough sick leave per year
Induction was very poor, in fact I was working there for about 3 weeks before someone asked me why I wasn’t clocking in. The comprehensive induction booklet that I was supposed to sign off mentioned a ‘buddy’. There is no buddy. The pay seems quite good but you end up working through your unpaid break to try and cope with the workload. More often than not you have to stay late. I really don’t know how management are going to deal with their problem; there is a high turnover of staff; it is difficult to know who to trust, even the hard working HCA who refuses to take breaks is a compulsive liar and makes up stories just to stir up trouble and create drama. There is plenty of drama, if you like that sort of thing. It is so strange working in what is supposed to be a caring environment to come across so much nastiness. Be Kind.
Toxic culture, bullying, impossible workload, no sick pay
Care UK is a complete and utter corrupt company with bully managers, they have a non existent H.R depart who do anything they can not to help people with a grievance, managers who don't even get to know their paying residents, they are company who are only out to take advantage of the residents and their family's by selling them something that is complete and utter lie in order to get thier hands on their money.igetgetthhands on t that person's money
Shift changes are constant you will owe hours most months due to early finishes so they will roster you more hours the following month. Annual leave is a lot less than the NHS and you will be left in charge which is not reflected in the salary. Very management heavy there have been 5 registered nurse leave in 15 months.
Poor pay management questionable
I enjoy working at week-ends for Care Uk and assisting the doctors in driving them to patients throughout the area.
The main part of this Out of Hours job is feeling that you are giving a service to the community and assisting the G.P's with driving them to the visits and phoning patients ahead if we are going to be later than they anticipated, and especially if the visit time is going to breach. The important and responsible part of this role is being responsible for a fairly large 4 wheel drive vehicle, making the checks on it before leaving the base, loading drug cases, checking that they are not running low on a drug that is dispensed quite regularly. Being able to use the Sat Nav software in the vehicles, and sometimes having to make adjustments if the last driver has altered the settings. Providing a confident and helpful service to the G.P. or Practice Nurse that you maybe driving, Being prepared to not always finish on time if there are urgent cases to attend to, and there maybe traffic congestion etc. When the Doctor is visiting the patients, there is time for the Driver to read, or listen to the radio, but at the same time be ready to take calls from the office at Dorking and make adjustments or pass on messages accordingly when the doctor is back in the vehicle.
Chew you up and spit you out of you won't "just do it". Gossips and bullies in senior positions. Many people leave after days or weeks. Heavy reliance on agency.
They have a 3 week notice for a forever changing shift pattern, poor wage and don't pay breaks, which there is no guarantee you'll get. For the little they give, they expect a lot. Training was poor and hostile environment. While some people seemed nice there was an overall stale atmosphere, which became apparent was created from top down
They couldn’t care less about employees- non supportive- audit controlled - if a member staff was to say - I’m thinking of leaving - they would show you the door. Flat rate for BH Happy to push you too 15 hr day no breaks Employ non clinical to manage clinical who don’t understand NMC legislation Managers protect managers
In some areas training great opportunities
Managers, bullies, want blood from you - poor sick leave (10days ) flat rate salary 365ays in HIJ
Ignored by management. Any support promised is revoked as soon as you're facing personal problems. Left to muddle through and solve your own problems. Not a lot of staff...I wondered why they had a rolling advert for staff...I gave up in the end and walked out. The training was stressful, rushed and intense. You have to sit an exam after about a week of intense training, if you don't pass, you're dismissed from the company straight away. I felt sorry for those without prior clinical knowledge. I was told if you have an emergency during the training period of more than 3 hours on the day, you have to start again with the next training cohort. I would have given a zero star rating if that was possible
Your job is never secure. They will find a way to sack you... 3 people in 3 days while I was there. I left on my own will. Hours changed and forced to choose what they want you to do. Weekend is essential. Asked to come in when my child was sick. Money wasn't worth it
