    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...

    I worked at Care UK full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The commitment to training staff is better than any other company I have worked with previously. The people and teams are one of the best aspects of working at Care UK. Also, the work itself can be very rewarding.

    Cons

    Teams are run very lean with a poor work-life balance. Senior leadership don't tend to genuinely engage with their teams, they spend more time talking at them instead of listening and getting a realistic picture of hard work and dedication folks put in 5-7 days a week.
