The rates pay is very low and you have a lot of responsibility t with the client They will just stop giving you hours for no reason. The selection process was vey long and frustrating and the training days are not paid making you loose a full day of work

Excellent workplace, with outstanding training and people

Having come from a care company who provided personal care support to clients, I expected a similar training programme, working environment and office relations as my ex-employers had offered. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Training: Pulse offers second to none training in all aspects of client support, in addition to the possibility of further developing one’s training in fields such as ventilation and end of life care. I had zero experience in complex care when I started and the thought of tracheostomy and PEG care summoned a great deal of anxiety! Nevertheless, the personalised training consisted of both theory and practical application of the knowledge acquired, which played a huge role in establishing me as a competent support worker as I was able to obtain a solid idea of what I would expect in practice. Moreover, Pulse offered a two day paid shadowing shift that allowed me to familiarise myself with the client, the routine and care needs of the client, whilst having an able support worker to seek advice from specific to the client. My opinions were sought by the office, therefore allowing me to consider whether the care package was right for me or not. It is also important to note, Pulse also provides recognised qualifications in areas such as medicine administration etc. Working Environment: For those that are studying a healthcare based degree, I could not recommend Pulse more. As a trainee Pharmacist, my work allows me to work very closely with patients as well liaise with other healthcare professionals such as nurses, pharmacists and OT’s. The Manchester -

awful

i know some people who have had a good experience with pulse, however mine was not. i came from another company over on my contract, which they hated. They owed me thousands which took me ages to get back. i nearly lost my home because of them. My manager would bully me, give my number to families, and tell me horrible things. I had to calculate my pay for payroll each month otherwise they wouldnt pay me, a baby could of done it yet they couldnt figure out how to work a contract. I had my holiday cancelled on the day of my holiday by my awful manager, she toild me to come back to do a shift, i said no as i was on holiday and its not even legal to do that. She told me she would let the family know i let them down. Very horrible. When i joined i was told by pulse that they are like a hamster wheel, staff get on and staff get off and we're all replaceable. If you treat your staff awful, you will lose them and if you don't have them, you have NOTHING, because they are the ones who go into the home and do the job thats required. I hope for any carers and families sakes, that they have changed their ways

Avoid

worked for this company twice now nothing has changed they set up an office get some care packages then after a few years when they're not making enough money, they close the office and give notice on care packages there a joke of a company. its all about how much money can be made, no support for there staff, hourly pay is not great considering most of the clients are complex care. not paid for attending training. no travel cost paid, but they want you to travel for an hour to get to the client. offer bonuses you never get as a recruitment incentive you're out of pocket before you even start work. like a lot of these companies they're always recruiting because staff get mucked about and taking the P** out of

Pros

clients are great

Cons

long hours, no proper breaks

Poor job security

Worked for company for 3 years no job security at all if you lose a client they had nothing for me promised at least 3 clients when offered the job so had client's to fall back on that didn't happen . When phoning office knowbody knows what they r doing promised a pay rise last July didn't get it till January and was under paid with some clients and only realised when other staff mentioned put complaint in was told it was getting looked at . No support at all from anybody.

Pros

No support or security
