Normal office environment, friendly and professional.
The HR department is a typical administrative offfice which deals with general administration and recruitment. Most of the time is spent dealing with customers both internal and external. the hardest part is when you have to deal with issues relating to sick off, pay, overtime and contract rollover..
Pros
Free car park
Cons
Normal working hours

argumentative management and bad ethos regarding salary
I worked for this company and found the management extremely unprofessional
I had many arguments around salary's left short on many occasions and having to wait another month for it to be sorted.

I would recommend Athlone Wheelchair Association for employment
I really enjoyed working for Athlone Wheelchair Association. A typical
day for me was meeting and greeting the servicer users from the bus,

helping with meals,facilitating activities and helping with day trips and holidays.


I enjoyed chatting and socialising with the service users and because I was on a Community Enterprise Scheme which last three years the hardest part was having to leave, but I also learned that certain aspects of the job was not for me, so I will not be looking for work as a carer.
Pros
Days out with Service Users
Cons
Only had funding for Two days a week

Productive
A typical day at work would include setting up tables for the adults and then setting up the computer and art rooms for afternoon entertainment.
