a caring workforce
Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW6 October 2017

working with passionate people
Cons
communication breakdown and lack of leadership

Caring role
Extended Care Worker (Former Employee) –  Hobart Tasmania14 January 2018
As a Carer you "hit the ground running" on day shift. Afternoon shift is still busy but not so much as days.
You need to be a very patient person with a heart of gold. This is not a job you do for money or just a job. Your heart has to be truly in it.
I have learnt to have an open mind.
Managements door is always open and approachable.
Workplace culture is a family atmosphere.
Hardest part of the job would be the managing aggressive Clients. Not being able to spend public holidays with your family. This industry is 24/7, 365 day a week.
Most enjoyable part The people you are caring for and staff working with. You have a sense of achievement of helping someone with their day to day needs.
Pros
the people
Cons
low wage, no public holiday's

An innovative and person centered organisation
Local area coordinator (Former Employee) –  Bega NSW4 July 2017
Uniting is embedded in local communities across Australia. It offers good salary sacrifice arrangements and is in the forefront of taking a person centered approach to all of its care roles.

Being such a large organisation there are advancement possibilities especially for those willing to be flexible around location.

A thoughtful and person centered employer
Cons
generally low salaries

Ok place to work plenty of staff meetings to voice your opinion on how things are going
AIN (Assistant in Nursing) (Current Employee) –  Hamlyn Terrace NSW12 June 2017
Uniting are a good Company to work for but at the moment they are more Task orientated than Person Centre Care Staff spend more time Cleaning than they do with the Residents
The manager is New and there are a lot of changes
The hardest part of the job is not having enough one on one time with Residents
The most enjoyable part of the Job is making the residents aware that they are being cared for and putting a smile on there face most times
Pros
some great staff, salary packaging and free meals
Cons
not enough time spent with residents

Very good workplace and staff
Care Service Employee (Current Employee) –  West Pennant Hills NSW16 May 2018
The management of this workplace is satisfactory. Difficulties happen when there is a shortness of staff to work on the shifts rostered. I have learned multiple skills from working here. I am content with this workplace.

Horrible culture
This is meant to be anonymous (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW23 April 2017
Too many managers and too many making silly decisions
No work-life balance
Was responsible for working on critical business infrastructure but not trusted to work from home or other locations other than head office.
No money gets spent on anything of importance. When childcare centres have to run their own independant fundraisers so they can buy stationary there is an issue.

Clients are great
Carer (Former Employee) –  Brisbane QLD10 March 2018
Management need improving Its their way only. Do not have a opinion and do not have a family life. This company says they care about you in training but this is far from the truth and they don't acre that the client is unhappy when you are removed from being their carer.
Pros
Client
Cons

I very much enjoyed working at UCS
Bookkeeper (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW31 January 2018
This organisation encouraged a friendly atmosphere as well as being respectful to each employee irrespective of your position.
My main job there as a contractor on a daily basis was supporting the Financial Controller in the reconciliation of the payroll and staff leave balances.
The organisation was merging various centres hence the need for the
payroll and staff records to be updated and recorded correctly.

I just loved working there.
Pros
Working with a lovely bunch of people
Cons
None

Stressful place to work
Manager (Former Employee) –  Sydney1 October 2017
Staff regularly hung out to dry particularly by upper management. Their mission statement is definitely not put into practice where staff are concerned.
Trying to drag ILU into 21st century with no or very little help for their managers. Managers under incredible strain & Area Managers are really only concerned about their own jobs & how they look to the Pitt Street office.
Cons
Incredibly long hours

I loved working at Prahran Uniting Care opp shop. A typical Day at work involves sorting and pricing donations, working at the till and providing customer service, help with the displays and merchandising. A fun supportive team to work with.

An organization where you will learn a lot
Administration and Roster Clerk (Former Employee) –  Blacktown NSW3 January 2018
Calls and rostering are parts of everyday tasks where focus and common sense are necessary.

Excellent customer relationship is always beneficial in assisting clients in the best way possible.

Trust of care staff helps in coming up with most time-efficient and safest roster for them.

Making customers and care staff happy is always the aim for the day.
Pros
The experience of dealing with clients and other staff are valuable.
Cons
The loss of several employees has an effect with the efficient running of a day's work.
