My 3 days of training was really good and they taught us a lot, I feel more comfortable with what my job involves. It was very interactive and they made sure you understood before they moved on. They were open to all types of questions

Pros

Stressful /made to feel rubbish!

Care is not sitting with old ladies have a brew!!! It means "Cover Your @*** Remain Employed!!"(Trainer taught us that! 1st clue at how difficult this role is..) you need to do everything from cleaning a commode with urine and faceas in it, to a person covered in it. Domestic cleaning making beds ,hoovering ,washing pots, cooking, shopping- carrying heavy shopping loads. Assisting with Applying creams/ meds support, physio therapy. Even consider things you wouldn't think of you get asked to do all sorts very few things your allowed to refuse.You need to be able to take been shouted at from everyone even staff that are supposed to support you most the time you feel very isolated and alone. Just reminding yourself that you have bills to pay and will find another job asap.

Pros

You have a job maybe not many hours but a job..

Cons

Everything!

Great Experience

I’ve played numerous roles within this company but the starting foundations as a care worker is what got me into becoming a nurse. There 3 day training/ annual Refresher with Sophie was the best I’ve come across! I started my NVQ’s with Medacs also, the office staff were great. Yes communication was not 100% but what company is? I worked the hours that suited me & would 100% return!

Pros

Flexible Hours

Cons

Lack of Communication

Management has no regard for staff welfare or safety

Management has no regard for staff welfare or safety. Management are unable or unwilling to have any interest in staff once you start working that’s why within the industry medacs is probably the worst to retain Staff. Every day you have off you will get at least two phone calls asking you to work

Ok place to work.

Very busy, high expectations of cramming in more calls. Not enough time to be able to be spent with service users. Pay rate wasn't too bad, not particularly keen on the management.

caring.

The company is very efficient. They were very understanding with what hours i could work. The actual work i carried out was enjoyable. The hardest part of the job was going to the different places i was sent to and feeling part of the team due to the long periods of time in between going there. I learned that to work with people with learning disabilities is a very rewarding but tiring job to have. The company did not try to push me to do loads of hours though.
