Housekeeping Assistant (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 31 December 2018
Blame culture, management do not care about the staff, thinking about stetic rather than practise way. When you ask them to support you they give you their back, when you need your manager to help you. He blames you straight away instead defend you. You chase them to pay you right
You never got a thankyou from the manager for doing a good job, manager shouts at a staff in the middle of the home instead of taking them to the office and explaining what the employee might of done, the housekeeping staff had to clear up poo when they weren't suppose to. The staff always spoke in there own language when in staff room when the rule was that they were suppose to speak English when on site of the care home. The most enjoyable part of the job was going home. We were only aloud a 15 minute break at lunchtimes. Never see any top management at the Bupa care home. The receptionist and administrator was fine.

Being a housekeeper at Bupa includes cleaning the residents rooms, the day room, dining room, kitchen, washing up, hoovering and emptying the bins. I get along with everyone there and the carers that I work alongside are lovely. The residents can be very sweet and it's lovely getting to have a chat with them when you can.
Housekeeper Duties (Former Employee) – East Dean – 27 November 2017
- Started at 8 am most days we had a short meeting and or training in health and safety or cleaning related. - Management was alright. - The staff were pleasant most of the times, a bit stressed out at times when under pressure. - Having to clean 15 rooms in 5 hours, make beds, clean bathrooms some harder to clean (more dirty), empty bins, dust, polish and vacuum. - The staff when not under pressure and the old people.

Bupa House keeper (Former Employee) – Manchester – 9 July 2016
A day at work was working with residents which I enjoyed and I got on with a lot of staff but the management was very rude and I learn't a lot of respect i was only young and what I seen people passing away and being very ill brought me to have a lot of respect.
Housekeeping (Current Employee) – Llandrindod Wells – 1 June 2016
I've been working at BUPA for 5 years now and I've enjoyed every minute. throughout my time the staff have been excellent, very welcoming and supportive, willing to assist wherever possible. The only way I can truly describe the people I've work with are like a family. I've seen 2 changes of management and all three managers have been fantastic, wanting what's best for the home and the people within it and striving to accomplish that day-in day-out. The hardest part and the most enjoyable part of the job is getting close to the residents. It's the most enjoyable part as they are fantastic people with diverse personalities and the stories they tell are gripping, however when they leave or pass on, that is easily the hardest part of the job, especially if it's a resident you are close to. Overall I've loved my time at BUPA and would recommend it to anyone.
Manageable hours and shifts
Occasional upsets due to fast turnover of residents
Housekeeper (Current Employee) – london – 16 March 2016
Management are rude and theres no discretion at all. Your made to feel like your nothing and spoken to like you cant do anything good or right. Specially when you;ve been with the company for so long. Low wages, no sick pay, although given hours you more than likely to work over that, so basically you work yourself to death and get no thanks for doing it. For a health care company they are the worst ive ever known, there are no benefits from it at all apart from stress and illness. The only good thing is the employees are lovely to work with and the residents are lovely to work with. I used to love my job before bupa came along.
Do not work for Bupa, management we terrible, and they make you do jobs that aren't even in your job description!
Job Work/Life Balance
Bad place to work

Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Watford – 21 January 2016
Working at BUPA was a great company to work for, they are all friendly and i felt like i fitted in straight away.
I learnt how it all works inside a care home, i would now feel comfy if a family member was to go into BUPA's hands for care. It was hard getting to thats why im looking for somewhere closer. I loved all the people there i felt like we was a team, but also at the same time i didn't feel like i fitted in.
