    Bluebird Care Employee, June 2021

  • Best thing

    I like my job, I love working with people building relationships, seeing end results of caring for people watching them improve, feeling a sense of achievement.

    Worst thing

    Wasting petrol when the rota has been done wrong, being sent to a client when the have cancelled the call. Having my rota changed last minute to give to contract carers my clients which means I have less work. Being asked to do courses not paid when I get up at 4.30am to do a morning shift. Being treated badly by office staff, it’s family and friends.
