Long 12 hour shifts, unpaid break, poor staff room facilities, not allowed to leave premise for break
You will be asked at the interview what contracted hours you would like to apply for.
If you have little or no experience do not over estimate yourself!
Best advise start with less hours and increase them once you feel more confident and you have better understanding of the job.
The health care assistant or senior carer jobs are not the easiest jobs in the world but they are very rewarding and you will have an amazing opportunity to meet a lot of great people once you join the team.
And rest assured that the best ones in the sector are working for Hallmark care homes!!!
The usual 12 hour and 6 hour shifts like at hospitals. Time really does drag here
What are the nurses shift times do you paid to stay the extra 15 min to hand over also what are the breaks for a long day? Paid or unpaid for nurses
If you go into any care job expect long hours as care does not stop it's not all about the money just be strong about work family life and hope your manager understands this if it about the money then get a decent career
If you value your life you’ll stay away from this place. They’ll suck the life out of you and kick your butt out the door when they’re done
The hours are very long and it is very frowned upon to take your lunch or go home on time.
Rota based, random shifts and changing constantly
A long shift is 8-8 day or night and a short shift is 8-2 or 2-8 on days
Terrible. They assume you have no life and are not flexible with choosing your hours.
