Worst deal for lab staff
BMS (Current Employee) –  Gateshead, Tyne and Wear3 April 2018
This job is the same as other trusts in the area (Northumbria, Newcastle, Durham, Tees etc) but with a worse shift pattern, worse computer system, worse work/life balance, and worse management.

Quite often I was expected to do things without training or instruction other than "follow the SOP" which hadn't been proof read, spell checked or updated in years.

There is a clear difference in rules for management and everyone else.

This place is an accident waiting to happen.

Avoid.
Pros
Automatic progression to hugger hands when qualified
Cons
Bad shift patterns, poor management

Clerical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Estates17 September 2017
Working on computers, inputting of data, varying requirements which meant very rarely were two days the same. A very interesting and at times challenging position.
Pros
Flexi working

Old fashioned

big thumbs up
Modern Business Apprentice (Former Employee) –  Gateshead, UK30 May 2017
10/10

The doctors, nurses, etc were all wonderful. Shame everyone's underpaid. I, for example, was being paid <£500 a month but that was because I was an apprentice.

worse job ever!!
Accounts Assistant (Former Employee) –  Gateshead7 May 2016
I was given unrealistic deadlines, not shown how to complete new tasks.

My manager doesn't have a clue how to follow policies, if anything goes wrong they the blame onto someone else, when I tried to alert HR to problems they didn't have a clue how to deal with employees either.

the most enjoyable part of the job was leaving it, I won't recommend anyone work for them!!
Pros
was offered to study while working
Cons
Bad management
