Reviews about Pay & benefits for Kitchen Assistant at SOMERSET CARE
Hard work with minimal pay
The job role can be very rewarding however the benefits and pay are poor. Care givers are constantly struggling with low staffing levels and even when fully staffed service users do not always get the level of care they need. The care industry is hampered by budgets and red tape which doesn't always give people the care and support they might expect. This type of job is a constant battle to balance high standards with lack of time and support. A well run care home is a pleasure to work in, with management and care givers working well to give an excellent level of service, however this cannot be said of all care homes. Where this is the case, the work ethos and atmosphere is often negative to the detriment of staff and service users.
