Animal Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Sheffield, South Yorkshire – 11 June 2018
Initially was great fun and colleagues lovely. Management let it down. Rules contradicted each other and they were very picky with what employees could or couldn't do (depending on how staffed they were that day). Never received formal training and when queried this I was told if I didn't like it, then to leave! After leaving I discovered that they had been slandering me on my personal files, falsely accusing me of things that never happened and/or discussed with me. Very sly branch. Would stay clear!
Volunteer (Current Employee) – Aylesbury – 2 June 2018
Helping to take care of cats at my local RSPCA centre is both rewarding and enjoyable. I've learned about health and safety, how best to meet the needs of the animals at the centre, and I've also found the staff to be very helpful and welcoming.
Retail Assistant (Former Employee) – Halifax – 29 May 2018
this was my favourite work experience by far .i learnt not only till experience i learnt people skills,floor work experience and it also learnt me how to work around my dyslexia and colour blind problems ,i learnt how to deal with a problem under pressure and i learnt a lot about myself .i am honourably grateful to that staff for my time working with them and i hope they help more people in the future
I have never worked anywhere that is so badly run. It's all about the paid staff and not about the animals! They have no respect for the staff who go above and beyond for the charity but seem to be more interested in playing power games and ignoring any suggestions about improvements etc.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Salford, Greater Manchester – 5 May 2018
Since i was volunteering with the RSPCA and not working there (thank god). The amount of time that i was there opened my eyes to what actually goes on behind them closed doors. Yes there is good things going on in there, operatons to fix broken bones/castractions etc. But the amount of animals that wre put down and treated i lost count. I did not enjoy working there the only thing i enjoyed was seeing and handling the animals.
Staff Assistant (Former Employee) – Derby – 25 April 2018
The Abbey Street RSCPA has a high standard in customer service and animal welfare. All animals are thoroughly cleaned out and fed twice a day in accordance to their specific needs. The ground are tidy and well-kept, and the staff are very friendly and helpful to one another and customers alike.
becuase it's voluneered, the system is pretty relax. You come in when you can/want for as long as you can/want. You'' get a lot of skill in stock rotation and mangement, and skills with a till. Going through donations isn't always plesent, but you get used to it.
