Was working as a bank ssa.. Started in a training course for two days.. First day fine all instructors turned up. Second day only one instructor turned up. We were left sitting there for almost a hour. Then a supervisor came in and told us all to go home. Wasn't given hours when I started. Then my house were regularly different..

Pros

Cons

Don't be to friends with staff they stab you in the back

Worked as a bank hcsw for this health board. Some of the staff are nice to your face then stab you in the back. And some nurses are very rude to you. The main issue is the reporting business. Staff will report you to the health board for very small or minor issues. Or for no reason at all. The staff just like to report people all the time. Which then raises concerns and issues with you. The bank agency is unhelpful and the management staff can be rude and try to report you too. No point working for the SBUHB bank agency. You’ll regret it and you’ll just get reported all the time by staff and you’ll be treated terribly by nurses and other hcsw.

Pros

The pay

Cons

Everything really

A good place to work

All things considered I've been very happy there. A relaxed interview and a nice welcome on my first day, starting the job proper within a couple of hours by working alongside experienced colleagues and never thrown in at the deep end although it's quite an easy job anyway. Quite honestly, I've not met a single colleague I didn't get on with and I quite like working with a variety of people and meeting the general public. Line managers are professional in attitude but are really very nice and accommodated me when I expressed a preference on what days I want to work on. Even better, I found them very supportive when I was ill with Covid-19 and especially on my return to work. I also find them very appreciate when you show flexibility. A few niggles with payroll but I think that might have been middle management not actioning matters in a timely fashion. To be fair, once resolved they've been faultless ever since.

Pros

Working with nice people.

Cons

Hourly rate could be better!

It is shocking.

The main issue I had was no matter how hard you are working, no one said thank you and they simply replace you in no time. Some are nice and good people, but higher bands managers do not care about the employee. Also, I didn't get any development course to inhance my skills. I have felt of isolation from the HQ members. The only good part was on site when I worked with same level ITs, they are nice and supportive. Other than that, I felt upset most of the time.

Pros

Some are good people

Cons

Very unreliable environment

Very rarely get paid on time or right money.

Never pay on time weekly paid on bank, but always missing payments, Joke with staff that this is a regular thing, you work you do expect to be paid, pay you two week then you get charged 40 o/o tax pension is expensive each week difficult to op out, very difficult to get refund.Good place to work, management in some departments are as much use as a chocolate teapot, if you not worried about you pay you be fine...

Pros

facilities and cafe.

Cons

You have to buy drinks they are not provided.

Amazing place to work

I am a Hotel Services Assistant and absolutely love my job, the people I work with are amazing, supportive and kind, they are some of the best people I know. Working on the wards is rather fast based and you have to be on the ball but you get to know all the patients which is great. Working on the departments is more relaxed than wards and on some you get some more time but both areas are amazing to work on. The pay is good enough to support yourself providing you have the hours.
