    Pros

    Fair company to work for.
    The house I work at are looking to make changes and improve the service.

    Cons

    Hard working with difficult clients, and the pay is low.
    Having said that, client can brighten up your day and make you laugh. Not a bad job.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes those at bottom, don't get listen to.

    Pros

    Made my own hours, could bring my daughter everyday, very laid back setting, nice working environment, good co workers, good location, good learning experience

    Cons

    Working at allied health i was underpaid, unappreciated, and overworked. I was hired for filing only and ended up doing claims, billing, and a numerous amount of other things and was denied even a .50 cent raise

    Advice to Management

    I am a awesome worker and I know I can bring a lot to the table. Im very motivated and I am always on time! I leave my personal problems at home and I do my very best everyday! Im very confident in my ability to learn anything I set my mind to! I'm also very organized and have great communication and computer skills

    I worked at Allied Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Clients were great to work with, trainers were good as they were very compassionate.

    Cons

    Staff in the office were bullies, denied payment of mileage if you put yourself out. No understanding of the clients of their needs and not understanding if you needed a break. Some of the carers had no or lack of compassion, and lack of working in a professional manner.

    Advice to Management

    Office staff need training and have understanding and meet and greet the clients so they have better understanding of the clients needs. Even better have training so they can do emergency cover. Not to put the guilt on the carers if they have other commitments or need a break.

    The clients make the job worth while.

    Cons

    The office can pressure you to pic up calls when physically you can noit .
    Long days most days.
    Not always able to get time of work to have at least a little bit of a social life.
    Work overloaded.
    Underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Some one from head office should come out and shadow carees. Management should start listening to careers.

    I worked at Allied Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Service users are lovely and very grateful for your help.
    Fellow carers for the most part amazing.

    Cons

    Office staff terrible; rotas never finished on time, treat their staff like the lowest of the low and expect the universe in return, vile to you if you cannot fit in extra calls, constant phone calls on days off and during booked holiday time, not at all understanding about illness. Not interested in assisting with return to work and take hours off you without warning.
    The job is always advertised at £8+ an hour, actual pay is £7.20 or less.
    Awful mileage pay and no time allocated to get between calls.

    Advice to Management

    Organise your office and treat your staff better.

    Pros

    The service users are all very lovely

    Cons

    Having spent a bit of time at allied, I certainly wouldn't return or allow any family members to be covered by them, not at fault of the carers as they all do a fabulous job. Where to begin... the job was advertised at £13ph got my first pay slip 2 days work £84 at £7:20 an hour (only for the visits) travel time not included which is ridiculous as I spend more time in the car than I do with clients.. don't live in the area I cover and am expected to have two, two hour breaks, would rather have the visits and get paid than having to spend pointless time away from family. Clients all unhappy by the amount of changing faces there are due to short staff. Clients complaining that times of visits are forever changing. No continuity for clients seeing the same carer, especially those who would benefit such as dementia sufferers. Not enough training for new staff, expected to go out and practice stuff you've been shown in a 15 minute slot on a training course.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the minimum wage but include travel time, longer or more detailed training. Carers to have small group of clients, clients don't want new people day in day out. More travel time between calls, proper breaks for carers.
