Enough shifts per employee’s availability

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I enjoyed working with Medacs, good rate of payment though need to be reviewed and increase coming April to suit the economic difficulties we are facing now. Good communication but more room for improvement as it’s difficult to reach to reach extension number or departments on time.

Medacs moneycare

I worked for them a little while back, I'm not going to lie, the job is stressful but I enjoyed what I did, helping people and their families. The management on the other hand were terrible. They would change shifts at the last minute, force you to work long hours and then threaten you if you refused. I had to quit due to other reasons but I doubt I would of stayed much longer.

Pros

PPE provided, work phone.

Cons

No travel costs, bad management, no care

its ok

It is a decent place to work as long as you don't phone the office for support. They don't care as long as the work is done. they will tell you at the interview that they will support you and all, but nope :) in addition to that, you would have to keep a close eye on your wage slips as many times, you would be missing mileage and incorrect payments.

Good Agency Cambridgeshire

I had a great booking advocate, very supportive . It went from BlueArrow to Medacs, 2003 - 2017 it was great training, probably one of the best. The rates, I think could have been better , the night shifts and mental health units seemed to be better paid.

Agency work

This company in the main provides agency work to the care sector. So there is little contact with the agency. They were efficient in the main and provided work 90 % when I requested.

Don't recommend

I have worked for Medacs for over a year. It's worst company to work for. They used to make so many mistakes. They would send me to hospital to do shift but in many cases wards didn't know anything about it. Quite a few times they put me down for morning shift and when I got to the hospital , I was told that I'm down for late shift. They always blamed others for that. Some of the staff in the office are rude and bullies , + constant denial. I have worked for a few healthcare agencies but never had such a bad experience. I have to admit that trainers were very good, they knew their job very well Not nice company to work for, in fact it was awful

Pros

Pay

Cons

Management, staff
Was this review helpful?

Alright, nothing to sing about.

was an okay firm to work with, pushing shifts, always had work if you wanted it. working with medacs the only problem is moving ward every shift, as some wards don't have the time to be able to propperly orientate you to the ward and expect you to pick up their practices as you go along.

Pros

Work when you want.

Cons

pedantic with the timesheets
Was this review helpful?

They'll tell you full-time hours are available to lure you in!!

Ward-based work across different hospital sites. Good to gain experience in HCA work. Management is poor; will book you on shifts with as little as 30 mins notice and expect you to fulfill even at last minute!! Training is free, although certificates arent given out. Hardest part of the job is trying to fulfill shifts with short notice The most enjoyable part of the job is the variety, experience gained, and job satisfaction of caring for your patients. Overall, poor company to work for. Better off joining the bank staff at your local trust.

Pros

Good weekend/night pay if you can get a shift

Cons

Sometimes go long periods without any work
