Careworker (Former Employee) – Luton, Bedfordshire – 6 July 2018
Would never recommend anyone to work for this company extremely rude staff ,poor management,don’t pay you on time and force you to do extra hours,hours that ain’t even in your contract or that you applied for,the management shouldn’t even be be working there
Co-ordinator (Current Employee) – Stafford Head Office – 3 July 2018
The pressure is relentless- The working environment is atrocious. No air con and office staff are not allowed to have fans and the heat is currently at sweltering point. You are expected to work 6 hours without a break. Comfort breaks are monitored. The management spend most of their time taking you in the office for a RECORD of Conversation- Affectionately known as a ROC. No training!! Coordinators are trained by listening into a so called experienced coordinator. On the plus side the working conditions take me back to my school days when we had to raise an arm to ask permission to go to the toilet!! Those were the days.
No words of encouragement-- no thank you for your work today- not valued- Not treated with respect- Not listened to by the management- But if you want to feell like trying the working in a third world experience then give Allied a go. Oh...if you recommend a friend to work there, & they last 6 months then you can earn £75 as a bonus. If staff would stay for 6 months then your laughing.
To top it all the staff are expected to clean the building as for the past 5 weeks the cleaning company have gone AWOL- staff ware tasked with cleaning duties, eg cleaning the toilets, vacuuming, emptying the bins...etc etc etc
Oh did I mention the un-achievable KPI's.......
So far I have been paid every month
Pressure, no support, lack of communication, high staff turnover, terrible working conditions, staff moral at an all time low, staff crying and walking out of the building, branch managers treating you like you are a grade 1 idiot, Calls not recorded.
Very busy, Learn a vast amount of knowledge every day,My manager was my mentor when taking my level 5, the hardest part of my job is when I have completed my own work I tend to make work, I don't like being bored, I love all aspects of my job roll from interacting with homecare workers, clients everything to be honest,
Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Burnley, Lancashire – 15 June 2018
this company is rubbish, do not work with them. they dont care about staff as long the company are making money everyone look after them selves. lack of communication! you have to do as your told or your jobless
Also any qualifications gained at the company are absolutely useless once you leave as they cannot give you any documents to prove the skills you gained whilst employed by them.
Job Work/Life Balance
If your face fits
Home Care Worker (Former Employee) – Inverness, Highland – 8 June 2018
Carers are used ceaselessly and office staff are relentless in pushing to get cover even though you’ve been working 12 days in a row. This is because they are supposed to do the work if they can’t get anyone to do it. Office staff are rude and it’s no use speaking to the manager because nothing gets done. There’s no chance of promotion if the office staff don’t like you. A really horrible place to work.
Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Carmarthen, Carmarthenshire – 1 June 2018
Worst company I ever worked for pay was always wrong rotas were always a mess they spoke to there staff like dirt they never kept in contact with their staff regarding cancelled calls clients being admitted to hospital etc.
Service delivery manager (Current Employee) – Spalding, Lincolnshire – 29 May 2018
I am a new member of staff as I started in Jan this year , my day is longer than my previous job role was but it flies by, I learn something new for my job role everyday, I have met some lovely people and feel like I belong here , everybody is so friendly and very welcoming. It is easy to approach everyone to ask for help and advice if I need it. The support workers all appear to be very happy in their job roles and they also enjoy coming into the office. We try to have fun things going on too and arrange events for team building days too. I do not regret leaving my old job role to start afresh and have new challenge as I have made some lovely friends here already. The pay is good, Management are approachable, training is second to none. Over all a great place to work. I feel staff are treated fairly and that management try to help where possible if there are any problems that may arise.
team work friendly staff good pay excellent training
Care Worker (Former Employee) – Morden – 22 May 2018
This is a great place to work if you have a family as there are typically long breaks, however, these breaks vary from place to place and during this, you could be asked to run to another call and fill in for someone. Your supervisors are generally lovely people, you'll get along with the team and the workplace. weekends are their busiest times so its extremely hard to get off early. The hardest part was doing a very early to very late shift on weekends. The most enjoyable part is still definitely the team, and pay.
Carer (Former Employee) – Letchworth England and Elgin Scotland – 21 May 2018
Absolutely horrendous company been with them for years as I needed the money I loved my clients but then once Office know you are close to them(as you would be) they take them off your rotas no support at all got pretty much sacked for being in hospital for a week money is atrocious and holidays are impossible don’t even get sick pay or paid holiday and I got a transfer which didn’t happen cause I had to start all over again going from working 60 odd hours a week to 8 terrible company if you are thinking of going with them , DONT !
Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Ormskirk, Lancashire – 15 May 2018
I enjoyed working for allied health care. My employees were caring and friendly and always there to help and re-assure. Caring for allied was suitable for my lifestyle and also very rewarding as I helped assist vulnerable people in there own home to assure they were left happy and cared for.
In my experience, Allied is a great place to work. In two years I have enjoyed more recognition and advancement than in previous positions and work in a fantastic team with some very talented individuals.
Noone is under any illusion about how much work there is to do to get where we want to be, but there is a real appetite from colleagues to continue moving forward in line with our clear strategy.
Great colleagues, Approachable senior managers, Development opportunities, Regular challenges
No job security. Seemed to be permanently under consultation. No pay rises for 3 years running. Most issues began when SAGA bought the company. They cherry picked the profitable parts for themselves and sold the loss making parts onto Aurelius. They had no idea how to turn the company around and things just got worse. Branch closure after branch closure trying to balance the books. Current management have no idea. Company is being run into the ground. The only good thing about the company is the staff and colleagues. The worst thing is the clueless management.
Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire – 25 April 2018
I worked for the Middlesbrough branch. This was the worst work place I have worked for. The managers are extremley unorganized in regards to giving rotas on time. Addresses or times would be wrong or not on a rota. They would not let you know if a client had cancelled a call.
Would highly reccomend NOT working for the Middlesbrough branch they are awful to work with.
Clients are amazing, lovely, chatty
Not paid enough for travel expenses if they remembered to add travel on.
