Good infrastructure but a hectic work environment for support workers

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The middle level managers dont care about the interest of employees with skewed decisions favourable to the organisation without taking into account staff concerns. Being employed as a permanent relief support work,you will be tossed around like a rug and the pay is too poor pay. If you request for variation of terms to casual, you get a timid no for answer yet there are staff under the same terms.I had to resign within a month.


Good facilities


Poor terms of service for new staff as permanent relief and cant switch to casual terms casu

The best and worst of times

The clients were great and some of the staff. There is a bullying culture which is a shame. OH&S issues. No support from management. Staff and management bullying. Most of the families were OK. Good pay but not enough for what you are doing, particularly permanent staff. A lot of responsibility and not enough training. Emotionally draining.


Salary packaging and the residents


Lack of support and emotional toll

Extremely poor management and support

Terrible management, no consistency. Unsafe practice and no support provided to staff. New staff with no prior experience and minimal English were employed and minimal training provided. On one occasion a supposed team leader advised I could use a ng pH test strip for a urinalysis!


Can salary sacrifice


Poor training and support of staff

Great people to work with

Regrettably I had to resign from my position within the CP Tech team. I was so fortunate to have had the opportunity to work alongside such talented people. A typical day was full on either in the workshop environment or attending clinics. The position taught me never to take anything for granted.


Team environment, Clients& families, workmates


Red Tape
