Okay work place to work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I worked for this company for a little while. I did have problems with childcare a few times. I wasn't getting that much work and those who work for them get first it felt like. The work was not in area they stated you have to travel 40 mins to work. When you don't take shifts because of distance and kids the big boses don't give you work. I e worked in care for a while now and I don't think I'll do care again.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Flexible sometimes

Very nice company to work for

Loved working for Kareplus Preston. Even though my time was short due to health reasons, I do believe kareplus are genuinely caring and look after the staff. They are there with any concerns you may have and they're very supportive.

Pros

Supportive managment, good pay

Cons

Visits can be very short.

Love working for this company

I love this company the management is so friendly and amazing the only bad thing is when you come of night shift and they call which they only do if it is really important and if u don’t answer they will drop you a text and ask you to call when your free which I think is very respectful .

Pros

Own hours, good pay, never the same every day, lovely staff, meet new people, good pay

Cons

No Holliday, sick or maternity pay, not gaurinteed hours

Stressful and fast pace environment .Very bad management

Stressful environment and fast pace. They are not able to listen to the concerns of the carers and their clients. They don't look after their workers.

Pros

Good salary

Cons

Long hours and bad management

I worked just for a few months for Reading branch, but I was really satisfied!

Worked about 6 months with them, no issues at all. Free training and uniforms provided. Service always there to support us in anything we needed. Shifts offered on daily basis, satisfactory pay rate, and in time. Providing advice and anything you need in order to get through the job and do it.

Pros

Good communication, shifts, salary

Cons

None

Not profesional company, not serious.

I have very, very bad experience in this company (Warrington). Not nice people, especially the managers. No hours at work enough , a weekly fee for the company on profile, for nothing. Lack of development opportunities and, above all, employee discrimination, no communication! The manager does not listen, no praise for good results, persuasion that the employee is rude, no gratitude, disregard! I follow you and I do not recommend you!😡😡😡

Healthcare assistant

Worked for kareplus on a live in package, and not paid what they owed me. Do not work for this company, if you do it should be at your own risk, as they don't care about their staff. All they care for is you to bring in the money for them. Very disappointed, and would not reccomend.

Good company, poor pay, poor management

This is great if you like alot of work, but you are underpaid and management are not sympathetic, pressure you into working a shift at short notice and on poor pay.

Pros

Plenty of work

Cons

No social life, poor pay, pressures from management

Great place to work 👍

Been here 1 year now and enjoying it. Good rates of pay. Office staff in Shepshed are always very supportive and helpful. There's a lot of work if you are looking for hours and flexible. Mileage paid from home. Would recommend definitely.

Great to do a Job Love with Flexibility

I have worked for the company for just over a year and so far cant fault anything. Great to be able to have time off as and when I want. Good rates of pay. I have met some great people along the way and I am lucky enough to rotate to most of the same homes so I have a good working relationship with the homes I go to...

Avoid

Avoid. Long lengthy process and you have to pay for your dbs whether on benefits or not. Too much jumping through hoops and red tape and not enough action.

Pros

None

Cons

All of it

Needs organising

My experience wasn't the best, at first things were okay until more and more work would get squeezed onto my Rota which resulted in me working through/ missing my break. It's hard to carry on when your hungry and dehydrated. Breaks are not breaks...you use your breaks to travel to the next call.

Pros

Good at first

Cons

Family/work balance
