Terrible work environment

I had a terrible working environment. When issues were raised with management it was brush aside or you were told change was coming but never did! I don't believe all NHS places of work are like this. Unfortunately this experience with NHS property service has put me off working within the NHS ever again.

No pressure

Working for the NSH as a cleaning operative is ok, theres no pressure and no taking your work home which is what suits me.Most hours are done around family and they try and promote a good work life balance. Wages aren't too bad, good annual leave and sick pay.I work off site so have little to do with the management team this can lead to poor communication.

Pros

No pressure

Cons

Poor communication

An all right place

I worked for the NHS for 3 years. The pay is good for what you do (weekend enhancements). The job security is great. The hours are not flexible, but there was usually no issue if you had to request certain days off, or leave early/arrive late for good reason.

Pros

Pay Colleagues

Cons

On your feet all day

Best workplace

In a such little surgery i found my perfect job. No stress and it's so comfortable. People are friendly and greeting you with a smile. They are also good listeners in case you have a problem.It was the best decision ever moving from torbay hospital to this little surgery.

Loved the cleaning aspect but due to mental health I didn’t like lone working

The cleaning crew were great to start with but if I had any problems they didn’t seem to handle it at all!Didn’t want to leave the job but I felt I had no option due to pressure of lone working for too much for me.The cleaning and touchpoint cleaning was easy and enjoyable just wish I had more support

Pros

Good breaks

Cons

Extremely large place

Terrible management

Awful management as a whole. Do not deal with anything correctly and do not deal with or take on board official complaints. They don’t care about their Domestic staff at all. Pick and choose when they want to follow the rules. Asked multiple times for stock or to send someone to fix something and it is never done

Pros

Pay is good compared to other jobs and working hours are perfect for me

Cons

Terrible management

Very fast paced

Very strict cleaning routine, need to adhere to all rules at all times including the use of chemicals and ppe.Cleaning and sanitising all fixtures,fittings and surfaces.

Pros

Discount card to use in various shops and venues.

Cons

Heavy workloads not enough time to complete on shift without rushing yourself.

Good hours and good salary

Management are hard to work with due to lack of communication and their knowledge of my job. You get bullied a lot and disrespected most of the time, they give you no credit or praise.

Pros

Good hours

Cons

Upper management

One of the worst place I've ever worked

I hope I never work in a place as bad as this ever again! Basically the management were scared of the staff - bullying and racist behaviour was rife.

Pros

Good weekend pay

Cons

The lunatics have taken over the asylum

Unproductive and not a place of work for everyone

I learned that, people from other countries working at the hospital were not given the respect they deserve, the management is non-existent, no support for those who work there. The job was not hard, the only thing which was hard was there was no back up, no support, no-one whom I could talk to about problems which could arise. My experience there was awful, I never felt welcome.One thing I can say is, if you want to work for an employer who appreciates you for the hard work you do, do not pick up this place, be watchful, you deserve better. Work for someone who respect you, your identity, your culture, and gives you the true regard you deserve.

Pros

nothing at all

Cons

long days with no breaks
