A good start to working in the care industry as an individual with little to no firsthand experience.I've worked for Fairway for a number of years and have experienced many changes from the onset and throughout. As with any care company, staff turnover is high. The company provided learning opportunities to enhance the employee's capabilities and utilize skills. However, the waiting list can vary. Depending on the location, there are plenty of homes to visit and work at which covers the mention of variety. The uniforms are tidy and smart. ID badges are required for which the company will provide replacements if necessary. The cost of a new uniform however is £20 for a tunic. They also supply black t-shirts with the company logo which are ideal for support care work. During my time with the company, I have experienced a great deal of unfair treatment from coordinating staff and care home staff members. Reports are not handled effectively and rarely any feedback that isn't negative is provided. Favoritism is demonstrated - I have found that the agency cancelled my shifts, stating that the home no longer required cover; however I discovered that the shifts were given to another employee. This has happened multiple times. The agency has also failed to notify when a shift has been cancelled which resulted in a wasted journey and not being paid. It is difficult to communicate with coordinators as the conversation feels one-sided and their behavior is atrocious at times. The job opportunities provide a stepping stone for a further career in care, though unprofessional behavior and lack of effective communication are the main reasons why I would not continue working for the company long-term.

Poorly paidPeople that work for fairways are nice but the people that run the company is a bit poorly run, as I didn't receive help from this job, I was just thrown in the deep end with only 4 weeks training and without shadow shifts, I was left out and in the end I just couldn't do it. It's agency work. Not enough Hours and little pay. Never will I go for agency again.
