    I worked at HC-One full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Bleach is banned in hc one care homes. Time and a half is paid if you work on bank holidays.

    Cons

    There is always a shortage of staff so you have to do extra work as well as your own for no extra pay. No sickness pay No ventilation when using chemicals. You are just given a tiny cleaning cupboard with a small sink and no window. That is bad for the cleaners health because the chemicals are strong. Some carers, nurses and unit managers will try to bully you and look down on you because you’re a cleaner. If you complain, nothing ever gets done to resolve the problem but if they complain about you then you’re immediately questioned in the office. No health insurance offered.

    Advice to Management

    Take bullying of your support staff seriously and help them gain confidence. Support them in developing their skills and pay them extra for the additional work they do.

    I have been working at HC-One full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Residents & some staff but not many

    Cons

    Extra jobs being loaded on everyday to do

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff with respect! This company needs to wake up & see exactly what's going on,, management clearly can't cope. If ever I've seen a circus this company is it, bullying, favouritism, to start with then 'qualified' ppl going out on assessments only to promise the world to families only to fill rooms, is disgusting. On the spot inspections are well overdue just too see what really goes on,,best part of reviews are from management on some level,, real reviews need to be read from staff. Do not put your loved ones in any place run by this company, please.
