They will make you waste you precious time ,making you travel all over Victoria doing odd training that clearly can be done online to find out they don't have any shift available for you to work , they are time wasters

Not a good organisation to be working for. They pay u $20 an hour rate and get the major chunk themselves. We work our guts out to be paid only $20 per hour. They use your skill to their advantage.

I would work about an hour after school ended. The job required assisting elderly people with daily tasks, including preparing meals and drinks. The job was overall a good experience and very enjoyable, we would usually spend our time caring, talking and playing games with the elderly.
Pros
Provided free meals, was short hours
Cons
Not much to do

Very much a understaffed company where employees are taken for granted as those employed are too compassionate to let the residents and clients go without. Management left very much to be desired in for m of providing proper support and safe work environment for the staff. Also other staff members were very quick to push you under the bus so to speak in order to make themseves look better. The best part of this job was the clients, who were happy and wanting to improve their lives adn prgogress further to better themselves.
Pros
decent wages and salary sacrifice
Cons
long hours, unpaid overtime, mis-managed staff and funds

Terrific people, good ethic and goal. There is a sense of proprietary when I open the shop each Saturday morning, although, it's not mine, it's the community's.
Pros
warm fuzzy feeling - voluntary!

not many

Re-positioning of patients, assisting on showering residents. Changing those in continents, feeding. I did night shifts which was challenging especially the dementia unit because we have to make sure we attend the buzzers in time to avoid falls.It was fun they have a good team of staff members and residents are very nice and appreciate the care they re given by the staff.It was a multi cultured environment so it was a great experience.
Pros
educational days
Cons
long hours
