It was okIt was ok, when I had first started was not sure when I’d be starting and had to keep asking when & received no help at all, kept being told there may “be no vacancies”. - Working was okay at times, left to work alone most of the time but there were others there at times. - Worked in supported accommodation houses and it was okay at times, some residents were genuinely really lovely but at times when situations happened the house lead, only in one house, would not answer so had to call around & never received an apology or anything & never wrote incident reports. > Also management in houses are not so great. - To get an increase in pay rate need to complete additional training & upload video of self onto the platform which was quite long but eventually received the very small rate increase 5 months later. - For me it was quite hard to get hours, had to message the house managers for shifts if you were not sent any. Kind of like first come first serve, which was a bit exhausting at times as they even were not doing the rota yet or they’d say someone else has been booked. So I guess good if you only want to work 1 or 2 times in a week. - Lastly, most colleagues were really nice

Terrible experiencemy first issue was that there was no one you could contact as managers were always off, i sometimes waited 4+ days for a reply, rate of pay is not what is says on here, i was paid LESS then non agency staff (to be precise £9) i was underpaid multiple times!!! Then it gets denied when you question themleft after a couple of months i do not recommend working for this company

It was okayThis job is good for students or people who want extra money on the side or work another job. Pay was okay, not the best but it was alright. Had to work in different accommodations with residents who had mental health problems, i got scared quite a few times by them, especially in Francis House(beware working in that accommodation, it’s a nightmare). Other than that be safe and if you feel scared or whatever just lock yourself in office door. Some of the residents are friendly, some are not. HR takes the long to reply aswell but my Colleagues were quite friendly. Hiring process was quite long, wasn’t getting any reassurance about when I’d be starting. Hours were good tho

Disgrace of a company- I’m owed money from the company - You don’t get paid within 24 hours, I only received my pay for one day in August in October - I had to continuously ask for a payslip, when I did receive it it says they have paid me more than they have - They are extremely unprofessional and habitual liars - I’ve been given no terms and conditions They say you can set your own hourly rate, but will not accept anything over £8.21 - They will use you for your services then rob you Avoid the whole company!
