G&J (Don't) Care

The most unprofessional, unempthatic, even dangerous company - Unfortunately being a carer for a period of time with them is the only way you realise how true this is.

Carers receive little training (unpaid), no support in and out of the job. Nothing towards travel or millage expenses. YYou will start at 6.45 in the morning and will not be finished until after 9pm. Also you will have X number of gaps through the day it works out you will only be paid for roughly 6 of those hours or less.

I had 1 year previous Care experience from about 5 years before. So I was not in any way current or practiced in any basic training required for working in clients homes.

I was told to come for training day before my first day out with the clients. I sat for almost 4 hours for the "trainers" to be ready as they sat at their desks mostly chatting and telling stories of their experiences with clients (most was to their amusement of clients with alcohol issues or dramatic arguments that has happened previous) After the long wait I was given a 15m run around of equipment and moving and handling and then handed a homemade moving and handling certificate. No first aid, medication, catheter or dementia training(all I have received and more in an intensive week long PAID course from my previous company)

This whole day of training and the travel of 50+ miles was unpaid. Their explanation for unpaid training is that its mandatory but free or we can be paid for it but then you have to pay back the company the money earned and then some...

I was out shadowing for half a day (shadowing a fellow new carer who had only started a week before) , met some of my clients but not all of them and then was left solo from then on.

In my time I seen many clients left without care, sometimes for days who were high risk to themselves or unmobile. Staff bullied into covering shifts so the manager on duty could stay at home. The office is extremely bitchy and uneffective.
If you care for your family AVOID
