I have been working with SCCH for about a year. I have learned so much about high need patients, doing training at Prince of Wales and Macquarie Hospital. I enjoy working with my co-workers, they are great people. My Community manager is great, very supportive. Other management staff are friendly and understanding. Overall I’m happy working for them.
Lots of online learning and encouragement to keep my own learning process
More opportunities to get more shifts
The team are super helpful. Everyone gets in on time and tackles their day positively e.g. urgent shift vacancies.The team shares ideas on how to improve process's which is improving. great environment
Free lunches / work life balance / great management
You will be bullied by other workers and management, these people are horrible to work for, they use employees for a skape goat wherever possible and WILL walk all over you if they see fit, about them at all costs they also trade under the name southern cross support services. They will also lie to cover themselves
Learnt what tracheostomy on a child meant. When suction would be to keep clear for oxygen into the lungs. Keeping equipments for oxygen clear off extra fluid so it’s not traveled into lungs And that consistency of care and love is beyond what diagnosed was! Client is well and living to their fullest today.
Don't get sick and don't care about your family and you will do well with this company . I had been diagnosed with an illness , I pushed through still caring for my clients, management told me They said I was lying even when I gave them proof from doctor.
I was caring for the elderly in the community, at first it started of great, management was caring and understanding of my needs as a carer and a uni student. Management new of my uni studies from start as I had informed at my interview When it came time for me to go on my clinical work placement for my uni studies, management pretty much bullied me into leaving as they didn’t have anyone to fill my clients. I was told at my interview that you got paid an hourly rate, travel rate and then time spent travelling. The time travelling is a lie which I never got.....
Was accepted for a position, fully disclosed my availability, put me through the orientation, then when it came for training, I was deemed unsuitable as the training time was outside my availability!!!! I had been completely open from the beginning and they said it was fine, they would work around me!!
Is fun place to work for and the participants are really great. Always flexible and help in allocating shortest distance. Really great coordinators to work with.
Very poor roster admin communication from SCCH from the outset - I repeatedly had to request essential information that had not been provided. Other management communication is not well coordinated. There is no job security or possibility of advancement - rosters can be cut even when supposedly agreed after negotiation. There is a current workplace agreement between SCCH and the NSW Nurses & Midwives Association, however most staff are not aware of the conditions and rights set out in this agreement. Payment is always a full fortnight in arrears - this is not standard nor should it be acceptable.
Some nice and helpful members of staff and co-workers.
Poor communication & management, no job security, payment a full fortnight in arrears
Great team/programs, excellent people to work with, both supports workers and clients.Great feeling knowing you are able to help the clients with their day to day needs/routines, its a great experience. Though it is physical work as well.
southern cross care provided a great work life balance and supported the time I needed at the time for university. As someone that has never had children myself working for a a beautiful family taught me a lot about supporting people of different ages.
No room to progress or advance. Management fail to suport staff when required. Clients are mosty lovely, although when abusive, not repremanded t all.
No support given to workers when required. No action taken when clients are aggressive or innapropriate. No job security at all. Benefits would be flexible hours, good penalty rates if you're lucky enough to get weekends or public holidays.
Irreguar shifts. No job security. No support from management.
