Culture of bullying and intimidation by management
RN (Former Employee) – Regional Vic – 22 October 2017
Mostly hard working and compassionate staff providing direct care to residents. Facility Manager lacked people skills, empathy and compassion. Staff were bullied and felt intimidated. Many residents reported that they were concerned about retribution if they spoke up. Support from management zero. Bottom line-managing the budget. Supplies of continence aids restricted, dressing products in short supply. equipment old and in need of upgrading. I would not recommend working for this employer.
Mostly great care staff, working with older people who still have so much to offer.

Worst company I have ever worked for . So focused on profits cost cutting is scrupulous. No support for the hard working floor staff just bonuses and perks at the management level . And have i met some insane mentaly unstable unemployable managers . Seems all Opal attracts are the deros no one elso will employ all good managets wouldnt lower their standards to work for this company ....... a big top end clean out is needed your brand is mud .
Floor staff rock .all understand the rott
Bloody awfull place revolting attitude toward what they are actualy providing communities
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Quakers Hill NSW – 1 May 2016
Very busy. In addition to medication administration for 30+ residents, RNs are responsible for doing dressings that are due, case conferences, follow up of issues, etc. Management was supportive. Co-workers do not their part most of the time so other shifts have to cop with what's left. Most enjoyable part was interacting with the residents.
Flexible work hours
Discrepancy with pay from time to time, delayed pay - only happened once but pay was delayed for 1 month, heavy workload, no salary packaging
