    Pros

    One of the best things about working with Mears isn't the pay, nor is it the exercise you get from walking from one service users house to the next but it's the people you work with and the service users you meet. I'm not saying all of them are great because i've come across quite a few unfriendly people but the nice ones really make you feel welcome and give off a great energy to work with.

    Cons

    There wouldn't be many downsides but I do think that sometimes the management do tend to forget about certain carers. They try their best to build up your hours so you're earning a great income but when they take on more staff when they haven't got enough service users, they end up having to share out the calls to fill up the new carers hours while taking them off the other carers when they barely have enough of their own.

    Advice to Management

    Please when you advertise jobs on sites, make them specific to the areas that need them and stop bringing in new carers to already full areas. Another idea would to also advertise the company in say the local news paper to allow people to find out about Mears and eventually use our service.
