Support Worker in Ayrshire
on 13 March 2021
Terrible managementI loved working with the people I supported, challenging at times but really rewarding. What let the job down is the completely inept management. Rotas one week at a time and usually on a Thursday/Friday for the following week! Certain staff get to pick and choose where and when they work and the rest have to pick up the slack. Left to work on your own with no support whatsoever from any management, the odd phone call and that was it. No staff supervisions no staff appraisals in the several years I worked here, how a care company can even get away with that boggles the mind! Most of the support staff are really good and very loyal, just completely unappreciated and let down constantly by management above them. Take a half hour off your pay each day for a break that you don't ever get, as your working 1-1 with a client in their own homes, you can't just leave them to have a break.

Never work hereWorking for the Richmond fellowship was fine at the start, but once you got to know the team and the management it is an absolute shambles! Short staffed all the time, no rotas till days before the new week, horrible management who never know how to speak to a human being never mind having a managerial role. The supported individuals don’t get the actual support they need/or pay for! Your put into dangerous situations and then when you approach management about this they turn it around on you. They don’t care about your mental well being or your health. Hence the reason for the staff turn over, it’s the worst company I have ever worked for and i feel so sorry for any individuals supported by this company.

Don’t work hereZero support from management, always understaffed and management don’t want to help or don’t set foot in services. Childhood dramas between staff. Staff members receiving multiple warnings for bullying, but nothing done about it. Laziness throughout most staff and management. Rotas aren’t given out until the last 3 days of the week. Management attempting to give staff into trouble for something they didn’t do, or were not on support to have done. Some staff members cannot be trusted and will stab other staff members in the back over nothing. If staff have any personal or health issues, the management will not support them (although they say they will). Management will put staff on the rota for overtime and just assuming it can be done, but will call staff liars when management are questioned about this. New staff are hired with zero experience and haven’t a clue what they are doing. Unless you are happy with these toxic working conditions, then it’s the place for you. If not, I urge you to look elsewhere.
Support Worker in Dundee, Dundee City

Do not applyMind blowing that a mental health charity does not see that sending rota at 9pm on Sunday for the week ahead is not good for mental health or work/life balance. Sometimes the rota gets sent at 9pm and you start at 8am the next day. 11 hours notice.
