Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I have been working at Values in care for over 10 years now and could never see me doing anything else. The company has great Values and the people we support are always put first above anyone. The staff and management are all really lovely and supportive. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.

Very busy, diverse role, yet Hugely rewarding. Lots of training opportunities

I have worked here for almost a year and can honestly say it’s been a wonderful experience . I work with a team of fantastic and dedicated support workers who work well together. The role itself is full of challenges and you learn something new every day. We all have a strong work ethic and shared values, this all contributes to the unique working environment we have created and continue to improve upon. If you put the work in and show willing then you can be sure to form and maintain good relationships with Senior staff and management, who value staff opinion and are invested in our growth. There is a sense of equality at every level and you will always feel supported

Pros

Active, fun and no 2 days are the same. Meals included. Use of company car, funded education opportunities

Cons

Current climate can cause staff shortages and hours can be long .

Nice environment

The people you meet are lovely and they make the job more enjoyable, the hours are long but your not working everyday which makes more time to have a social life. The overall experience so far has been very enjoyable.

Pros

Days out with the residents

Cons

Long hours

avoid at all cost

In the beginning this job seemed amazing, great staff, great clients you work with, but as the job progressed the management let it all down, no body knows what's actually going on and the management don't really care about the staff, you're just there as a number, the staff turn over rate is high because there is no care given to staff.

Stressful, understaffed, under paid.

Awful company to work for, expected to run a shift give out medication for minimum wage no bonus, very high turn over of staff, worst management skills ever, staff not appreciated at all, constantly asking you to do extra shifts, not knowing what your working one week to the next.

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours, slow giving rota, favouritism, not paid enough for the responsibility

A place where all ideas are valued and the opportunity to progress and each day you learn something new, learning is never ending 😊

Currently an employee at VIC, a job where i look forward to attending each shift, no day is the same and support among the team is amazing. The main focus of the day is ensuring the people we support are having their best day possible achieveing goals, learning new skills and being a part of the local community. I started with no experience and now my confidence has grown in bounds thanks to the support of management and the company to achieve my own goals and opportunity to gain qualifications to become higher in my role, the best part of my day is watching the people we support achieve and suceed being part of helping all with independence, no longer am i someone with no qualifications i have gained some on paper and also some through my role being a teacher, a supporter, a person to rely on during difficult times. I know when i leave my shift i feel good that iv helped someone achieve a meaningful life and feel i have an extended family, if you are caring, compassionate and like to be fun and a fan for those you support to achieve this is the job for you and you wont regret it!!

Pros

Meals and drinks provided, bonus schemes, training, qualifications, teamwork, appreciation and being valued for ideas to better others and yourself

Great place to work if your willing to dedicate a big part of your life to it.

In short, values in care is a great place to work. Very rewarding job, can make some great friends and the pay isn’t too bad, lots of opportunity to pick up over time. The hours can be long, some shifts better than others but I’m sure it’s like that in most jobs.

Pros

Opportunities to progress, overtime, friendly staff

Cons

Long hours, a lot of responsibility

Values in care

I loved working for values in care. I was let go when on my probationary period I was going through test as I was unwell. The staff were lovely to work with n the residents. I really do miss working there. Training was always very thorough and made fun. I was sent to different homes now and again. I have to say everyone was alway so nice and welcoming.

Pros

Good staff and residents.

Cons

Management dont care about anything but how they are portrayed.

Fabulous residents

If your face fits your ok, no matter how hard you work, all managers has their preferred staff and work Rota’s to their advantage.. if you have any concerns it’s pointless speaking to the manager, they don’t want to know.. long hours poor pay.

Pros

Lovely residents and some staff

Cons

Long hours

Most understanding company

I have had no problems with this company, give you plenty of training before starting and put you on refreshers when you need catching up on training. You work as a team with people who will support you with whatever you need.

Pros

Management are understanding

Cons

None
