    I worked at Care UK

    Pros

    Great training, supportive senior management, opportunities to progress down the line

    Cons

    Poor pay with no sick pay, 12 hour shifts with 30 mins lunch break, some poor practice from team leaders and they treat you like kids. Your face needs to fit in. Can be very cold environment to start.

    Advice to Management

    Make new staff more welcome when they start

    I worked at Care UK part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Co workers are welcoming,easy to work alongside. The care staff do the best they can to care for residents with the short staffing levels they experience regularly.

    Cons

    If you want to work for nothing then this is the place to be...underpaid regularly or not paid at all for hours worked. Management are uncaring and lack the basic knowledge of rota management.

Staff turn over is high due to unhappy staff. Care staff...

      Cons

      Worked at mildenhall lodge for 10 months. The day I left I was still waiting for some kind of induction. I was not even shown how to get out in the event of fire.
