if you looking for a job don't go there. Bad management bad culture. When they think you don't do enough for them they dismiss you on reasons built on lies.

They recruit staff on a daily basis, very poor staff retention, horrible shift hours. Very low pay. Very stressful management. The residents were amazing in there. Staff have good working spirits but the management is nothing to write home about. Please resign and quit their jobs on a daily basis.

Not very good communication, managers are quite disorganised and you don’t get enough credit and recognistion for your work done. Overall the staff are quite friendly however unfortunately the company has changed for the worse over the last 10 years.
Pros
Friendly staff
Cons
Unorganised
