Struggle for shifts

Sounds like a great company to work for but the reality is not so.Struggle to get shifts, they don’t go in the App the manager gives them to who he likes and if anything left he will put on the App. On one occasion when there was no shifts on the App he had given someone 12 consecutive shifts that no one else got to see. Takes shifts from you that have been agreed to give to others.If your relying on work and a salary this is not the company to work for.

Pros

None

Cons

Promises shifts and block bookings available but this is not the case.

Productive and fun place to work.

I have been working with your Cavalry Healthcare for the last 6 months. Office staff are very professional and friendly. Replies to phone calls and messages promptly. Very supportive and understanding and is there for you in need. Always receive enough work through the app and offers good rates of pay. It’s an incentive to work for your Cavalry healthcare.

Well paid hourly rates

The hourly rates offered for shifts is good and above average for this kind of care work. Can always get in touch with the staff in the office and the app they use is awesome

Pros

Well paid, specially for last minute shift pick ups

Cons

Usual cons of working for an agency on a 0 hour contract
Was this review helpful?

Practical and flexible

Shifts are easily picked up on the app. You choose where you work with no pressure from the agency office staff. The hourly rate and what you’ll earn each day and each week are on the app which is a great motivator.Obviously the down side is regular staff can always be a bit unwelcoming to agency staff in some settings. I have witnessed it but personally have not had it happen to me as yet.

Pros

Excellent work life balance and good rates of pay

Cons

Being agency can make you feel a bit undervalued at times.

No support

Felt like they weren’t truthful aboutLocations of shifts during the interview. After you start working there is no support, and no one you can really contact, they don’t seem to care about their staff. Pay rates also lower than many agencies.Wouldn’t recommend.

No nonsense company.

Great team of people too work for and with ✌🏼You book your shifts through an app that is very easy to use and anything you need to know is all on the app. Five stars.

Pros

Work when you what where you want.

Pros

Always work available

Cons

Terrible communication

Currently working as HCA. Good rates of pay, good communication with the offices. Easy shift picking. For an area witth generally low income, Cavalry is paying a decent rate, also the team is helpful and always there when you need something.

Pros

Easy shift picking (app). Good pay rate. Available shifts on different cities. Good communication.

Cons

Long hours but it is normal in healthcare.

Best care agency going

I have worked for cavelry for almost a year. I have learned more with cavelry in a short space of time than I have with any other care job I have had. Being with cavelry has encouraged me to go into doing nursing and I can still work with them alongside studying.

Pros

Great team.

Cons

No shift patterns

No Work!

No work in Lancashire and you feel there is a pecking order from ofice staff who gets the shifts. They pretend to care about you and the patients. What they really care about is making money.

Pros

You get paid on time

Cons

No Work

Impossible to get shifts!

Although the staff appear helpful on the telephone It is increasingly difficult to get shifts. As soon as they become available they are gone! Sadly, have also had shift applications cancelled clearly in favour of somebody else which does not do much for your confidence. Get the impression that there is a pecking order where shift allocation is concerned. Very disappointed!

Pros

Friendly staff

Cons

Hard to get shifts
