Where do I begin? Applied for this job and was very proud I'd got it, now I've left I realise they will literally take anyone on they are that desperate for staff.
Promised the world at interview and training, was told I would have support and that they would 'train me' was sent on calls to change stoma bags 3 weeks after joining after having no training or even warning what so ever.
Shadowing was good, the only good thing I got from this company was the carers I met and had the pleasure to work with along the way and of course, the service users.
Management? Well, that's a complete shambles! I originally wanted 20 hours as I have 3 young children and a partner who also works full time. This slowly crept up to over 40 hours a week. If I called up they would cut my hours right down to 2-3 hours a week to be spiteful. Then soon on the phone when they needed cover! I travelled miles out of area for this company on a regular basis and it was never appreciated. Id go in the office for supplies to hear them slagging the carers off after they'd got off the phone to them. Such an unprofessional, unfriendly company and I would strongly advise to steer clear unless you have no children, friends, family or a life!
