Senate is good

Senate Nursing Bureau gives competitive salary for their employees. They also hire students who are doing part-time jobs. The management is very supportive to the employees and they support the migrant workers to have their working visa.

Pros

Plenty of work schedule from different facilities.

Cons

No fix schedule. Working to different facilities around the city.

Unequal treatment of workers

Pay rate does not equal qualifications. Too many workers not enuf work. Favours people needing guaranteed hours for visa requirements. Uniform of poor quality for the price.

Pros

Variety of workplaces to upskill. Wonderful people you care for

Cons

Below guaranteed wage rate depending on who you are, Told there is much work available there is not, Sometimes the distance travelled makes tbe job pointless financially, Have to buy own uniform.

Pros

Cons

long hours when the person need to replace you didnt show up

Renumeration, costs incurred by SW's

Renumeration - Beware!! Senates hourly rates are not based on qualifications. Numerous SW's with only level 2 qualifications are paid a much higher hourly rate than them, on an advanced level of training with many years hands-on experience. SW's in this position may end up being milked and employed on the cheap, if they are not wise to this. Must pay for uniform. Are not paid when attending Senate training days. Often very long distance travel too and from job is over and above earning for the day, especially when one factors in the extra time required to drive the longer journey. Do not pay mileage... To conclude, do the math before excepting a shift!!!

Pros

clients are more than often lovely people.

Cons

Senate's questionable take on renumeration.
