Laid back , terrible wages

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
HHFT over employ people in almost every department. Result - lots of people stood round talking and gossiping about whoever takes their fancy. Wages are terrible for all admin roles , work is dull and repetitive. Mostly filing and transporting things around the hospital. Staff constantly talk about “Agenda for Change” payscales !

Fast paced company

A very good trust to work with. Management is quite concerned about your growth. There are loads of training to take to improve your skills. Very lovely staff as well

Anxiety inducing, stressful and exhausting

A lot of nurses treat carers badly, they will expect you to run around for them and help patients alone, whilst they sit at their computers. You end up feeling overworked and undersupported. Some wards are better than others. As bank you get to chose where you work, but a lot of the time they move you to cover understaffed wards, you leave feeling exhausted.

Pros

Night rate is good

Cons

Booking a ward then being forced to work somewhere else

Mixed experience as Bank employee

Can only comment on RHCH. Some managers were dreadful and disorganised. Some colleagues helpful, others I'm glad never to see again. Agree with prev. comment that overall an OK place to work but not exciting. The staff Covid testing arrangements is one thing this Trust has got right.

No time to even talk to anyone

Very stressful, get left to run Department on your own a lot of the time and the phone calls can be horrendous like a call centre and most calls generate more work, feel guilty to take your 1/2 lunch break, workload doesn't seem to be fair at all, some staff get a lot of work and others in my opinion not so much and the staff that do not pull their weight get a higher salary

Pros

Good Holiday Allowance

Cons

Understaffed

staff are extremely overworked and less appreciated

Staff are overworked and never appreciated. I have learned a lot and great experience which i will carry on. Management are only concerned about saving money, overloading staff with extra tasks and do not have the time to have a one to one meeting with staff

Pros

Lunch break and staff discounts.

Cons

Pay is not attractive, staff are not appreciated enough

Wonderful People to Work With, Shame about the Pay!

My colleagues are great! They are supportive both professionally and personally. Holiday entitlement is very good as are the pension benefits and discounts available on the high street. Unfortunately, the NHS expect extremely high levels of committment for comparitively low pay. This can lead to high levels of stress from management who expect a lot for very little in return. This also leads to a conflict on work/life balances.

Pros

Holiday entitlement, NHS discounts available on the high street

Cons

Inflexible working patterns, very low pay comparatively
