I was given the job of a manager after being a deputy for a number of years with a different organisation. I had my job with the VSA for 5 weeks, my 6th week i was on holiday, i came back to work to find my manager and hr person in my office questioning me on how things were going. I explained i wasnt allowed fo manage and all decisions were made for me. I explained this and was asked fo leave. I left a secure job which i had for 8 years for this supposed promotion and with a young family i was basically told to leave. The staff i was managing were very nice however my superiors didnt introduce themselves and were faily standoffish. So a horrific experience over all.
Terrible managers, no care for people who work there.
I work at Crosby house as a support worker and I love my job all the staff are friendly and support each other. Yes it hard work but the resident are lovely and are at the centre of everything we do at Crosby.The manager and team leaders are always eager to help when needed.
I have been working at Crosby for three years now and I thoroughly enjoy it, amazing team work, great management and highly paid! There is always time for the residents and they are always put first no matter what. Staff pride themselves on doing any task asked of them! Best company to work for
There are no benefits for working within VSA. We don’t have time to spend with clients, and they really do need our help and time. The clue is in our job title. Support worker. Lazy colleagues. Poor standard of care. Management do not listen at all, if you try to speak about issues, they get highly defensive, sit in the office at their computer and nothing gets solved. Management at head office even worse. They don’t know how to treat people, only look after themselves. Ask yourself why VSA are always advertising vacancies. Avoid.
Long hours, lazy staff, lack of support from management
Lazy staff that dont know what they are doing. Manager is temperamental. Expected to pick up after other peoples mistakes. Job security is zero. You can go to work and be sacked on the same day purely because the manager doesn't like you. The tenants barely get to do anything because staff would rather sit in an office and often dont get the proper support. Doing any activity is too much effort for most staff. Staff are never willing to help, would rather sit and watch you struggle. Very strange place to work. New staff are poorly trained. Best thing you can do is avoid. It really is not worth the hassle, place caused me to become very depressed. Felt bullied and belittled.
Management, other staff
After working at vsa for a few years I have seen a steady decline low morale of staff low pay barely above the minimum wage.we may as well be employed as cleaners and waiters. Rather than support workers.. Demoralising
To much learning.. Low pay
Title says is all, horrific job unless you keep your head down and be prepared to do most of the work on your own. Most other staff didnt take their play in completing most jobs. Management didnt really have a clue, you were just made to feel you were a number within the company. I have never been so stressed and so happy to finally leave at the end of the day. residents sadly most of time didnt get properly cared for and were so bored most days as you never got time to do a activity with them.
Lack of staff and ones that split work load
After having my son i was due to returnbto work which proved very difficult as there was an unwilliness to accomidate my working hours and then told to break my contract which i was unwilli g to do. Very high numbers of staff leaving. Work load was fair and varie. Training provided regularly
Poor level of staff
Day start from read the report from night shift, then check all the residents and give them medication. After ask help in daily routine, if they need make appointment with Doctor. In the middle of the day check again all residents and give medication. At the end of the shift write short report and give it to the next shift. I have learned lot of skills like follow direction, listen to others, communication, attention to the details. I also understand important of record keeping. My co-workers were very helpful and understanding. The hardest part of the job was not enough staff some days. The most enjoyable part of the job helping people.
various shifts, some until 10pm
