    I have been working at Candlelight Care full-time

    Pros

    Candlelight is a friendly and welcoming company to work for. All the staff are accommodating and build a real sense of teamwork. Support is always provided for any issues faced, and are overcome quickly and successfully. The training provided is thorough making the job even more enjoyable. Additional qualifications can also be achieved through candlelight, such as diplomas in healthcare. Hours are flexible which is nice,...

    Cons

    The amount of work put in by the staff is not always reflected in the pay, also early morning starts in the winter can be tough, you need to have confidence and care in your driving ability.

    Advice to Management

    The company is a lovely care company to work for, everything runs smoothly and the support provided to staff is phenomenal. Hard work and success is recognised through 'gold stars' which is nice however if at any point in the future a pay rise for staff could be possible I believe this is something that should be implemented. Otherwise there are no faults with this company whatsoever and is a pleasure to work for candlelight!
