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

    Pros

    None but 5 times over

    Cons

    Minimum wage. No job security. I was employed on a part time contract to do 3 days a week and never took and holiday days. Then they changed me to a bank contract without asking me and all my accrued annual leave just disappeared. Company disputed that they didn't have to pay it to me.

    I have been working at Care UK part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Amazing colleagues who do their best. Being a care assistant is a worthwhile and meaningful occupation. Excellent work availability. Good opportunities to progress in your career.

    Cons

    The company cares more for profit than for care (hence why they make so much) . Organisation is not a thing. Hard working staff taken for granted. Some senior managment can be extremely rude and degrading. Training can take a while. The company may offer opportunities but their ethics are sometimes questionable. Wages should be higher.
