Residential Care Worker in Morwell VIC
Expect the unexpected The kids you work with are amazing! 90% of your co -workers are great. Down side is you are constantly competing for shifts with other casuals, a lot of pressure to take night shifts which are hard when it’s on/off shifts. It can also be stressful and demanding, with little training which is concerning when you are responsible for the care of vulnerable children
Soul destroying and career damaging workplace- management and some staffLook elsewhere unless you enjoy being battered and bruised and leave with your confidence and self esteem destroyed. Staff and management been there too long- complacent, form cliques and not helpful to new employees

Staff continually rating out each other out to make themselves look better in the eyes of upper management.
Supervisors strong armed into not signing staff off to protect their own jobs.

Case Manager in Clayton VIC
High stress with low rewardsInitially I had a supervisor who was a complete bully. She brought me to tears more than once. I did approach her about it. She then ran to HR and provided a very different version of events regarding her behaviour toward me. When I finally got a new supervisor she was great but the job was very high stress with minimal reward. If we worked overtime doing admin after attending a crisis we didn't get TIL for it or overtime. Most of our team worked weekends and weekend nights just to keep up. No recognition from management. Horrible experience.
