As ex Porter in this hospital I would like describe my experience in positive and negative way.The staff are very friendly, they help you a lot, and you get to know new people with different cultures,it's good place to integrate. I can't say same with the management where i worked,is disorganised,they have very poor communication with the staff,someone is quiet rude even with bad attitude,and sometimes you're forced to do a job you've never done before,even without ever taking any training.They will never help you to provide any keys to use the proper equipment to make your job easy and smooth,even after they've trained you to use them.You use a teletracking system that should favor the service for patients, but in reality it helps them to constantly monitor the jobs you do, they constantly spy on the computer the time it takes to do a job, how much time you use to take a break,seeming to be at the big brother house. The Salary is not well paid for what you do, unless you work many weekends or few night shifts.The funniest part of the job are some people you meet, staff or visitors or patients, many of them are always happy, and this leads you to give more positivity and affection towards them, and the job you are doing in that moment. Most of the time you even forget that you are in the workplace, because it makes the environment more pleasant to be in.

You work harder than people who don’t care and earn less than them. Hard work gets you nowhere here. Women create a bad working atmosphere, disappointing.
Pros
Good hours

To work at this particular trust I personally believe you need to be a very dedicated member of staff and be prepared to evolve your job role on a daily basis. Working for the countess in any individual role from portering to a senior management you need to be prepared to 'go the extra mile'. You need to be highly motivated, be able to work autonomously as well as a strong team member. It is essential to have excellent communication skills, and to be personable in any given situation. Working for this trust is extremely demanding but there are moments of job satisfaction.
Pros
None
Cons
No extra pay for overtime and poor work/life balance.
