EX support worker (Former Employee) – Brisbane – 10 March 2019
I left after 8 years of loyal service. I reported MAJOR abuse of clients....that had been reported previously by others but ignored by management. I went as high as I could go.I should have gone to Police. NO action was taken for several months.. I suspect that's how long it took for a inept/chaotic management to cover their ar$es.....When I left in disgust I was threatened with legal action if I told anyone about the awful long running abuses I uncovered. I had to go to Fair Work Australia to get to get my entitlements paid. I am very happy to divulge EVERYTHING I know to the upcoming Royal Commission in to Disability Care
care employee (Former Employee) – Gerringong NSW – 3 March 2019
Initially okay to work for but have seen the decline in almost a decade with Uniting. Low staffing levels, constant criticism from management, very low morale workplace and neglected clients. Would not recommend anyone apply for uniting jobs.
Aged Care Village Manager (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 11 February 2019
The culture is quite poor and morale is low. Not really interested in staff needs or pressures. Little regard for work load Nice part of job was other staff who helped each other Learned some new systems Best part of job was the residents who were very supportive Hardest part was increasing levels of work. Requiring increasing work hours with no pay.
My self-worth, self-esteem and love for fellow man has been destroyed from being in such a toxic environment, full of manipulation and hate. Every day I went to work I began dry reaching this became part of the daily routine. I will shoot myself before. I go into one of those places again. Managers and support staff are the biggest bullies there.
There is none. I've seen care staff make their own eg. Eat part of a residents meal
Although they tried i found my needs weren't met and conflict was not handled very professionally. Due to a dispute where another staff member was questioning inappropriate things regarding my personal life I was accused of verbally abusing this staff member and could no longer work in that section. Absolutely disgraceful.
Care Service Employee (Current Employee) – West Pennant Hills NSW – 16 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.
Carer (Former Employee) – Brisbane QLD – 10 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.
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. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting and helping customers and sorting through the donations.
Bookkeeper (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 31 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.
