I worked alternate weekends whilst at dale care. The company provided sufficient training before I commenced independent working. However, I feel as though there could have been more training on the administering of medication for service users. The support and management from the company were good. I cant really comment on the workplace culture as I only worked alternate weekends, and was very rarely at the head office. however, the staff I worked with were always lovely and friendly. The most enjoyable part of the job was definitely meeting new people and being able to help service users. The hardest part was the long hours, and sometimes finding the right house! Overall, I enjoyed my time with Dale Care.

When I started, I was promised flexibility due to my own disability and didn't get any of it. Office staff were horrible to carers and clients, clique-y behaviour from carers in care homes. Was forced to resign by line manager when I said I couldn't cope with lack of walking time, hours were erratic, nothing like promised. Wouldn't recommend unless you want to be miserable.

Staff are not helpful, office staff change rotas and expect you to travel more than you put down as distance in your interview. Patients are not cared for like they should be.
Pros
part time
Cons
rubbish system
