Domestic Cleaner/Housekeeper in Bangor, Gwynedd
on 16 May 2022
clicky but ok
the pay is ok but the people working there are not nice some are ok. management is very poor and biased. the job is very repetitive and boring.The supervisors do not know what they are doing very underappreciated, no team work very individualistic and a lot of preferred treatments to older staff

Fair place to work
It could be worse, the NHS has suffered over the past 2 years with the Covid pandemic. Lots of changes brought in at even faster pace not always enabling staff and teams to keep up

Awful
Poor pay, poor conditions, worked to the bone.More and more responsibility given to staff with no regards for quality of care.Staff are moved around continuously, PIN numbers at risk by working un unfamiliar areas.Patient care is abysmall, you can't do what you need to do as staff ratios have fallen to an unsafe level.

Outdated systems, lack of opportunity for progression, hiring less qualified individuals and paying them more than others
The NHS is extremely outdated and disorganised and everyone that works there is aware of it but nothing is ever done. Most of the management were lovely but a few let themselves down, extremely power hungry and can’t stand if people ‘less superior’ to them have an opinion different to theirs. One of my colleagues was told at their exit interview that they don’t have the skillset required to get the job they want and then ended up getting a job in their desired field that paid 10k more and is now thriving. Also a lot of discrepancy between how they pay their staff. Hiring people with degrees plus experience and paying them considerably less than someone with no degree and a lack of experience. Then saying they can’t progress into that higher band until they’ve worked in the department for 2 years, very bizarre. Wouldn’t except any job offered again.
