Terrible work environment, overworked staff mixed with high staff turn over and low pay.
Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Tamworth NSW30 November 2017
Useless managers who had no idea how to comprehend. Recently changed system to export calls to sydney, makes it even harder. Useless staff with a terrible blame culture. Expect to work 60 hours a week with no overtime, no breaks and no employe learning.

Day program consists of not hitting any goals for individual with repetitive lazy cooridinated schedules. No leader, staff always complaining. Bad culture.

Northcott have a signed EBA to equate to the loweat paying hourly rate in the business. Save yourself the hassel and avoid this useless business at all costs.

Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Taree NSW13 June 2017
I have really enjoyed working for Northcott..in Taree.
Never have i seen clients treated with such kindness and respect. As a Support Worker; i have found the Team on the floor to be both integral and fun. Assisting each other to enable clients to be at the forefront of the daily focus.
Management were both understanding and fair in regard to both work and personal issues.
Hoping to remain with Northcott for a long time as Career opportunities may prevail.

Volunteer disability support worker (Former Employee) –  Coffs Harbour NSW2 June 2016
The staff and the clients treated each other with dignity and respect. They were always joking around with each other while working. It made the job enjoyable.

I especially liked learning about the clients and getting to know them. I was able to support, encourage and help them in their activities and build a friendship with them.
