Supportive environment

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
CHD are largely committed to staff wellbeing. A little disorganised, training is excellent, support excellent. I have found them to be a little disorganised but staff are friendly and supportive and always willing to help.

Pros

Autonomy

Cons

A fair bit of unpaid work

Working brightens my day

Cons

Improving business!

I have worked for this company for numerus years. I will admit to begin with this was not a perfect place to work, however now the new management in place is inspiring and striving for a customer based outlook. There is always someone to pick up the phone if you need them for not only work related issues but your personal ones as well. I feel part of a big family and I am happy to now work here. We are constantly improving!!

Pros

Inspiring for better care.

Cons

Some long hours at times.

Awful work place. Only good for the competitive pay

awful management. Poor time management and sends you backwards and forwards with no time in between expected to work 60hrs and more If not they will treat you awfully and make your work loads even more difficult . No help to cover when you need it. Lucky to get a day off even if you ask for it. So unprofessional and childish it was unreal. So glad to have left. The only good thing was the pay.

Pros

Pay

Cons

Everything else

Detached

I have never felt so isolated at work. As a live in carer I thought they would have a support team for lone workers. The manager who was there when u started left. No introduction or anything to anyone else all they want to know is what time you turn up for work. No supervision to check if you and your client are doing ok or need any assistance. Soo lonely

Pros

None

Cons

Do not work here

Horrible place to work, no communication from the office staff, rotas are horrendous and impossible to keep to. Constant missed visits for clients. They don’t pay you properly for what work you do. They only care about you if you can work 60+ hours a week and have no kids. There’s no chance of career progression within the company. STEER CLEAR.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Terrible work ethic

As a nurse in KRC I can say that the management had no respect for how hard the job is. No support whatsoever. As someone who believes in hard work there was no appreciation for and of your hard work. No time to even sit down for a break or think right. The stress level was out of control and no matter how hard you tried it was never enough. I truly liked the staff. They used so much agency that there was never continuity.

Pros

Reduced lunches

Cons

Long hard day's stressful and no time to eat or drink

I have loved working for CHD Living

I have thoroughly enjoyed working for CHD Living. I feel valued as an employee and I have learnt so many new skills making my role very satisfying. The team I have worked with have been incredible - welcoming, encouraging, friendly and approachable, making everyday enjoyable. My manager has made my time at CHD Living incomparable to other roles I have had in the past by providing support and aid as well as recognising successes and working together in a constructive way to address possible improvements. 10/10 recommend.

Pros

positive work environment

Cons

Steer Clear

Worked here for a year, was treated like dirt after bending over backwards for them. If you don’t do what they say then they don’t give you any hours. The clients in the home were lovely and the care side was great, however some of the management were vile. The home manager is nice but the supervisors were horrid, no social skills, didn’t do any care work, spent the day chatting and having cigarette breaks. Laughed at when reporting a safeguarding issue, loads of bullying between staff and nothing done about it. Would recommend staying well away from here

Chdliving is the best company to with for

I have been with CHDLIVING for the past 5 years and I'm loving every day. Owners of the company are still involved, they really care for their staff and happy to support whenever the needs arise.

Nice place with wrong management

Days are usually quite busy. If you don't have experience from previous places, you won't learn a lot. if you are really good and try the best of you, don't expect to be noticed. You have to have connections. Residents and their family can see your good work but not the bosses/management.

Appalling company, shambolic management.

Full of promises, none delivered, poor management communication skills. If you want to feel like a number this is the place fir you. If you want to feel like a valued member of staff where your contribution matters...look elsewhere!

good place to work

I have learned Safety at work, team work, new knowledge. The management was very reasonable and helpful. The co-workers friendly and good team. The hardest part was I think working Friday- Sunday 12h shifts, time to time short of staff. The most enjoyable part was seeing happy residents and relatives after my part of job was done. The typical day at work would be cleaning all common areas and residents room, taking care of laundry and when needed help in the kitchen.

Pros

4 days off/ chance for overtime/5weeks of holiday

Cons

long hours over 3days
