    I have been working at Care UK part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Supportive management Depending on manager, they offer a good work life balance.

    Cons

    They advertise career progression but unfortunately it appears that only happens if you are favored by higher management. They promote people without any pay increase, just a title change, very disheartening.

    I worked at Care UK full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Better than average base rate pay for day shifts at £9.50 an hour - Intriguing incentives most months for bonuses (usually around £250-£300) dependent on performance in areas such as attendance and punctuality. - Night shift base rate is considerably low at just £2 more than day rates at £11.50 an hour, however, if such shift was agreed to as overtime, there is a high likelihood this will be paid at either 1.5 or...

    - Lack of support from supervisors (mainly due to lack of spare staff), especially during vital periods, including when you first begin taking calls from the public. - Inexperienced members of the team enduring managerial tasks early in their tenure due to the lack of said supervisors. - Lack of clinically trained staff during night shifts and some busy periods. - Disorderly distribution of important local policy...

    I work at Asterbury Place and think it's a great place to work. I would say, here at Asterbury Place, there's nothing we cannot do between us to maintain and improve our standards. There are many great people here. Let's keep it up.
