You work long hours, sleepovers not well paid. Can be very stressful, if you do work for them, be prepared for long shifts, hard work, very repetitive. You are not appreciated, I would definitely not reccomend this company, you get more pay in other places.

Like going back to high school
If you want to bow down to queen bee then this is the place for you. When you work here you have no life, no time and all the managers work put on your shoulders. Managers have plenty of time off (even 2 weeks at Xmas) and don't give a toss about you or your home life. If you don't drive it doesn't matter if there's no public transport on or if there's a red weather warning you're still expected to travel in expected to go in for your shift.

People are trying but nothing ever gets done
Scottish Autism has high staff turnover for a few reasons. The pay is typically low, there is very little choice in shifts and you can be sent anywhere at short notice. That can mean working a shift in Largs and then going straight onto a shift in Kirkintilloch. You will have no say over your shifts and they will change quickly at short notice or you will find out a shift is cancelled when you have already arrived. This often means you will be using your annual leave to cover the hours of these cancelled shifts if there's no other shift available at short notice. In certain services a shift might only be 5 hours long which means if you're on a full time contract you're working 6 or 7 days a week to make your contracted hours. It's an expensive job to do as well, especially if you're on a service such as outreach. These will typically involve going out for a meal with a service user and usually you will receive no meal allowance. So a 5 hour shift can make you £45 but easily cost you £10. Raising these issues with seniors will you do no good at all. Apparently 'EVERYONE'S miserable, this job is killing everyone!' cos that makes it better? If you have a complaint about your working conditions the message you will receive is that you are the problem. There's also been a problem that concerns raised are never really acted upon - safety suggestions are ignored, support users are stuck doing the same activities year in year out because there's no movement towards changing anything, training is perfunctory and full of cliches - requests for specific training about issues facing - more...
Pros
there's lot of nice people working here. And lovely clients.
Cons
You probably won't know those nice people for very long.
