Nice people to work for. Great clients, very good induction training.Interview was very good, made to feel wanted, relaxed and be myself throughout the interview.Very good training , 3 days at the head office. Lunch provided and very good incentives to help bring onboard new caregivers.Early day but looks really exciting and exactly what I was looking for from a outstanding business.

Top Dog in Care

Cool company to work for, supportive, listen, help, and the office team who works out our weekly calls try very hard under great pressure to please not only is caregivers but most importantly the clients. These guys are amazing. Been in care for a few years, but been here for just under two years and never looked back.Management/ owners amazing, supportive again, listen and will response direct usually within one day. Top rates of pay, this helps tremendously with cost of living theses days and never a problem with 4 week pay dates. Would recommend anyone that’s wants the best job ever to apply.

Pros

Great high pay rates

Fun, serious when needed, top employer

Work very hard to maintain the outstanding standards CQC, friendly other caregivers, great clients, the office go to great lengths to make you feel part of the team with coffee catch ups. I was very nervous at first but after full training and support now settled in. Get regular hours as requested at interview, zero hours works for me, but guarantee hours available if your willing to commitment and it pays well.Like I did great office team, superb caregivers, clients make you job the best ever.

Pros

Support and free coffee & cake afternoons

Lovely company to work for !

I have been working for right at home for about 7 months now, my time here has gone very quickly mainly due to my fantastic clients.The support for the office is amazing, so organised and always looking to improve communication and work procedures. Very warm welcome when you pop into the office for PPE or just a chat. Lovely cup of tea and always offered a cake or biscuit.I have worked in care for a few years and this company really does deserve every award we win. Here’s to many more years ahead. Keep it up guys x

Pros

Friendly & open & honest

Always looking to improve for the caregivers and clients

I have been working for right at home solent got 2 years, over the past 15 months the office have become not only better, but very supportive, much more interaction like coffee and cake afternoons with us. The schedulers have a very hard job , with over 90 caregivers to please every week, the communication we get every Friday and the few question we are asked are very good. Well thought out, funny, like the one every one who reply’s one of the office team will eat a donut, I would think over 50 would have been required.At the end of the day, we are here for out clients and it excellent to know that the office staff are there for us, pay very good rates, never had an issue on pay day, unlike my last company I worked for.I get great hours, works well for me and my family life, grandchildren etc.

Pros

Full days off, split shifts if you want

Cons

PPE in hot weather, not company’s fault

Welcoming and supportive

The level of support that I have received through the whole process has been great, I’ve had more support through my training than I’ve ever had working for months at another company. Management seem friendly and staff seem really happy to work for the company, sounds more like a big family than work, I can’t wait to carry on and get stuck in

Pros

A lot of support

Best company I've worked for, but struggle under stress

Right At Home Solent is a company that I enjoy working for about 90-95% of the time. It is nice to feel like my thoughts and feedback matters (for the most part). It can be a hard and emotionally heavy job, but if you: have a car, enjoy driving for work and love an independent style of working, consider giving this a go. You get to meet some lovely people and make a difference to people's lives.My main issue with this company however is about communication and work life balance; the two go out the window when the office is under stress. Often I feel overwhelmed with texts asking for OT, and the wording used places blame and pressure on you. This has been raised many a time but I have seen no real change. I can say no to OT, but I worry for those that struggle or expect the office to always respect their availability. The people in the office though are all lovely people.A good job, and the best company I've worked for to date, but the cracks really show under pressure.

Pros

Minimum call time of 1hr, having your work appreciated (magic moments), higher pay rate than average, using care app to log visits, everyone is a joy to speak to on the phone!

Cons

Have to say 'no' (often more than once) to OT when it's too much, poor work/life balance at times, can feel overwhelming, unpaid travel time (excluding mileage).

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

My summary says it all from the very first phone call to the recruitment team to the last stage on boarding after induction what a treat. Oh boy can I say induction, three days intense Learning but you learn, you learn the ways, the right at home ways , your taught how team works pulls you together so your all working on the same page you get confidence that you never knew you had, they want you to grow inspire and become the best you can be. 100% professional this is the kind of stuff you get taught in University business models on how to succeed and this is the first time ever and I mean ever I’ve experienced such a brilliant well thought out interview approach, induction, and working with the office start to ensure your ready to meet the clients. Oh and did I mention very, very good rate of pay and all the great benefits you get as well.

Pros

Ice cream at induction, chilled drinks available

Cons

Induction could bring 1 day longer

Review of Interview & Induction Process

I’ve only come through the induction process so far but it has been excellently organised, friendly, informative but inclusive and informal. By day 2 we had met the company Director abs multiple people in the HO team. Ice creams were delivered due to the heat, very detailed discussions on the function of the business and the job role, catering to all ages and experience. Impressive - looking forward to the last day and starting.

Pros

Open forum, short bursts with different people and subjects, refreshments, teamwork, small groups

Cons

Nothing Right At Home could control - hot weather!!

So kind and caring

What a place, my fellow Caregivers are second to none. Very good office and management team. Top rebate of pay, I get 20 hours work most weeks. If you required anything from PPE or just a supportive phone call it there for you.Hardest part of the job is knowing when to say no to extra work, but then Right at Home are very good at making sure work life and family life have that great balance.

Pros

Pay 12.33 per hour

Cons

Can’t think of any

Outstanding

I have been working for right at home solent now for a little while. I was welcomed with open arms, and encouraged to strive in my every day duties. My typical day consists of about 6 clients, of which are amazing. I have learned so many new things since be employed here. I’m so impressed with the management structure and office staff. When the chips are down the office will assist out at clients homes, well if that’s not dedication, what is.I would recommend any one to become a caregiver with right at home solent, they really are the best out there, and top payer.Best part of my job is all of it. Can’t really fault it, have worked for many others, but this company spot on.

Pros

Wages £12.33 per hour

Cons
