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.
Sales Executive (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 6 October 2017
the organisation is undergoing a difficult move from a regional controlled operation to a central focus. change is slow to materialise and the benefits are not evident. Communication is often slow or breaks down. Despite internal problems the staff continue to deliver high quality service and never waiver from their commitment to client care.
Extended Care Worker (Former Employee) – Hobart Tasmania – 14 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.
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 NSW – 12 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
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.
This is meant to be anonymous (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 23 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.
Case Manager/Support consultant (Former Employee) – Penrith NSW – 14 January 2018

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.
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.

Manager (Former Employee) – Sydney – 1 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.
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.
While there was room for futher education, it was competative hard to work the building too many places where staff would hide. Overall the staff benefits were good, management was unstable at the time I worked there.
