Not a fun place to work

where I work is busy from start to finish hardly get time to take a breath....we're supposed to work as a team but there are certain people who think it's above them to do certain jobs that they are supposed to do and this has caused resentment with the other staff...these certain people are two faced and go out of their way to cause trouble and are loudmouthed and rude and every day is a nightmare when they are on shift. As for the supervisors when you tell them you have a problem with these people they do not address the problems.

Fun workplace, to much paperwork, red tape, some managers have not a clue, 90% of staff care about patients and want to do the best for them

Fun place to work but cut out the red tape or at least cut it down, to much wasteage, time wasting, the job can be very rewarding and can be enjoyable. There are staff who try to pass off some of their tasks onto others, same as many jobs

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

Long hours at times, management are/can be clueless

Intensive work load but if a can do attitude will enjoy work.

Enjoyed my time in the hospital.The work load can be quite intense, but if in a good team can be enjoyable.You must be a good team worker and also have the confidence to work solo. Depending on which department you work in Management can be very supportive and approachable, i had fantastic Management backup.

Pros

Safe work place and job security

Cons

Long hours, intensive work load.

A typical day at the hospital is quite stressful, but you get used to early mornings waking up to start from 6:30 am till 3 or 7ish that's if one choose to work overtime.

Pros

Free goody bags.

Cons

Long hourse

Good job

I enjoyed my time within the NHS. I had to leave due to personal reasons but I would go back if the opportunity came again. It was part time but was quite flexible with the opportunity to do bank and earn extra through overtime

Pros

Enjoyed the job

Lovely place to work

I recently started work and everyone, team leaders and colleagues are kind and helpful. All aspects of my job was fully explained. Any queries I have are answered quickly and efficiently. I have been made welcome, and it is a pleasure to work in such a nice environment.

Productive fun place

I enjoyed my years at the nhs, but it was too many hours. I would also prefer a part time day job as I have a disabled husband and can’t work 12 hour shifts anymore.

fun and busy place to work

It was suitable for me at that time, as I was a student and worked as housekeeper. Overall it was good experience and working atmosphere was friendly and colleagues were helpful.

Working environment

Would not say this is a nice place to work supervisors think they are above everyone no one is friendly to approach backstabbing can be extremely lonely and clicky overtime goes to the the same people all the time spoke down too and often in front of patients lots of bullying goes on really stressful they like to make you feel worthless sadly not a nice place to work no variation of work

worked as a housekeeper

This job is very busy and workload is very unfair, the staffing is not equal on every unit, I was on my own working most of the time nearly every shift, then after a while 6-7 month there is another housekeeper there , so my workload is reversed as I have back up. I was not trained properly for this job. I was being performance managed very strictly so was forced to quit to avoid being sacked.

Great pension scheme

Didn't feel appreciated for the job. Worked where ever they sent me also trying to maintain my ward. Didn't feel appreciated for the extra hours I did.

Morale very low

Does'nt support workers in their wellbeing allows bullying. No qualified management to deal with issues. As a housekeeping assistant your bottom of the pack.

Pros

None

Cons

Not listened to
