Volunteer Retail assistant (Current Employee) – Manchester – 16 June 2018
I volunteer one day a week and get on really well with the manager and the customers, there is a problem with the shop lifters and customers trying to haggle but apart from that I really enjoy my time there.
Community Care Assistant (Current Employee) – Perth – 12 June 2018
Loved my clients and the girls I worked with. Management on the other hand couldn’t give a hoot about anyone. You phone to get advice from the office and immediately get attitude and made too feel like you’re dumb. I reported this numerous times about attitude, nothing was ever done. You get called constantly on your days off if you’re lucky enough to get one. Phone you at 6am to tell you your route has changed. Over work their staff, horrible company to work for but lovely clients to care for.
The service users
No lunch break, communication, ridiculous shift patterns
Moreton - Customer Assistant (Current Employee) – North Moreton – 4 June 2018
Although only a volunteer i have been working with them for a year and have greatly enjoyed my time with them, i have been able to develop a number of key skills that will allow me to excel when i leave.
I really enjoyed working here as the staff were really nice and friendly. I also learnt a lot while here. I enjoyed all the jobs that I had to do and never got bored. It also makes it more of a good place to work as it's all to raise money for charity and that's what makes it better.
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Cleveleys, Lancashire – 22 May 2018
lovely place to work full of lovely people i really enjoyed working here loved meeting new people and learning new skills whilst i was working here only thing i did not like was that the shifts was all over the place
I was only a volunteer at the store but every day was full and fast paced, and I ended up working 6 days a week for a few months. Definitely recommend if you want some experience without it being completely boring, much more exciting than other charity shops.
support worker (Former Employee) – Spalding – 8 May 2018
I worked at holme hall for nearly 10 years and I enjoyed it and learnt what I know now. What let it down was the clicky groups of females which meant certain nurses allowing things to happen which shouldn't of done. Loved all my clients and thoroughly enjoyed looking after all of them. A shame the home closed down for good.
Retail Volunteer Work (Former Employee) – Stockton-on-Tees, Durham – 8 May 2018
It was my first try at a job, and my first volunteering role. It helped me realise that retail isn't for me which is good, but I didn't really enjoy my time there. My managers were quite unkind to me, making some nasty remarks about me without really telling me what they said, getting around it by saying it was a joke. I also felt quite uneasy behind the counter, especially when I seemed to have found an item of clothing was stolen. Overall my experience was quite unpleasant and unnerving.
A lot of responsibility in one role, not a very happy environment
volunteering here really helped with my confidence and overall mental health as it kept me busy and interacting with people. I dont believe i would have been able to move on if i had not started working here.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Portsmouth, Hampshire – 2 May 2018
Sue Ryder is a very motivational work environment with a welcoming, lighthearted and cosy atmosphere. The staff are so considerate, the vibe is always relaxed and it's overall a very productive workplace.
Community Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Stirling, Stirlingshire – 14 April 2018
Would be an amazing place to work if it wasn't for office staff/management. Not enough communication with the staff, when concerns raised there shot down or your get told its being fixed when it doesn't, no continuity, always on different runs with extra clients as its always short staffed, the high turn over of staff should kick management into action but sadly it doesn't.
