A bunch of bullies!!!!
Carer (Former Employee) –  Bridge of Don11 November 2016
Horrible horrible experience as a carer!!!! The longer serving members of staff ran things!!Even the agency staff! These are the carers I m speaking about!!

I was ignored, bullied, abused and what was worse was the residents invariably suffered because the staff would spend their time giving you the cold shoulder just because........

A very bizarre culture going on there! A really nice manager who from what I could see was fighting a losing battle. How does a care home depend on one carer so much????

You re not made to feel welcome
I left and never looked back!!
Full of bullies as carers!!

Awful care home!!
Care assistant (Former Employee) –  Aberdeen, Aberdeen City17 March 2019
Nothing but a horrible care home to work for,
too many chiefs not enough Indians,
you’re made to feel like your not welcome, treated like a piece of cr*p. Too much bullies in the place,
The residents suffered because the staff would be too interested in there personal life and social media at work and telling the other members of staff about there personal life’s.
No support atall from management it was a loosing battle in the place!!
Staff nurses didn’t care about what carers had to say about the residents when there was a problem, it would be left for another member of staff to look at..
Also on occasions you’d see members of staff sitting in rooms on there phones while residents were in bed sleeping.

Definitely wouldn’t recommend anyone to work in the care home!
Awful place!

Pros and cons
Care Assistant (Former Employee) –  Aberdeen, Aberdeen City14 February 2019
Salary is ok (although I think for the amount of work you are required it could be a little more) and you can be sure you'll be receiving your money at the end of the month. The residents are usually lovely and you end up loving them in no time.
However, the management is just hilarious, I've never been given the handling training (which is usually given during your first shifts), staff (apart from very few individuals) doesn't know what team-working means and they stab at each other's back. Bank contract, but since the management is very disorganised sometimes you're actually useful but a lot of times you are not, to the extent that there's no point in you being there. At Xmas time everyone was asked for a present, I didn't even know they were giving them.
All in all it's an ok place to work, if you don't mind a disorganised management and very little interaction with work mates.
salary, flexibility
no team building, no organisation
