Poor unit culture. Staff constantly behind each others back. Stress for no reason. Bullying from all directions. Head nurse is horrible to work under. Has absolutely no respect for there staff. Unless your absolutely desperate, apply somewhere else.
Friendly staff on similar paygrades
Long hours, bullying, poor pay, constant turnover, heavy workload
I am a student and had to leave due to College requirements. Worked in Housekeeping for the summer and found it a good job. Worked with someone until I was trained in and then given my own floor. Had to clean rooms and day areas, we also had to do some laundry but mostly our mops and cloths. The team I worked with was good and would have liked to stay but could not due to my college in Dublin.
Good team and given training
Can be demanding at times
I worked there about 3 years ago. It was my first HCA job in cork after working in Dublin and Westmeath previously. I left after 3 months. I have stopped working as a HCA due to this and now work in a administration role in a hospital. Management are terrible to work for. They expect too much of their staff. They are aggressive also. I had a work place accident that was serious enough and I was made work for days after. I got sent to have it looked at eventually and was told to take time off work. I assume it was never reported to the HSA. I was then appointed a more senior role with no extra pay and more responsibilities. I was not allowed finish my shift until everyone else's work was done, my work was constantly being checked and was being put down by Management.i left due to severe stress that caused me to have hair loss and anxiety.Everyone that I now speak to who have worked here has had the same experience.stay well clear.
The Director of Nursing's lack of professionalism and managerial skills gave the home an unsettled atmosphere to work in. Her attitude towards staff isnt favoured in the home. She has no interest in her staff, no interaction with residents and is unapproachable. It was a lovely place to work prior to the current DON started.
I worked in a nursing home for 1 year. Genuinely a lovely place to work at first. Then management changed and so did the job unfortunately. I had 4 absenteeism 2 of which were work related injuries, Unfortunately our DON decided to pull a staff member who had been absent a lot recently because of absenteeism in the home. I was let go in a very illegal way with very little information. This Was to make an example of a staff member to stop absenteeism but unfortunately she picked on the wrong person. I loved my job, loved our residents and loved my team members. Our DON was new at the time and did not know any of the staff at this time. Disappointing for such a lovely nursing home.
Wonderful patients, fantastic team on the floor
Never worked in such a horrible place. You would think that with them being so short staffed they would do everything to make new staff feel welcome. The opposite is true. Its truly a terrible place and the resident are just left sitting there all day with little to no interaction.
I found this place a hostile environment. Staff and management were always rushed, no communication, staff leaving all the time or complaining about the working conditions. The breaks were too short. The expectations too high, with no time to treat the residents like humans. Some of the staff members got away with some shocking behaviour!
Senior management a big problem. Not there for the residents. Very much a bullying culture in this nursing home from the management. Would not recommend working there
This place is horrible to work in, residents left by themselves for long periods of time and often soiled. No support for any staff and the demands from management are crazy. Staff are spoken to like they're pieces of dirt at the end of the management's shoes! A lot of stuff covered up by the management about the bad behaviour of some of the carers!! Stay clear!!!
My time at Mowlam was horrible, very stressful and left me filled with anxiety even before I’ve started a shift. The management is awful, show no respect for their staff and do not care about you at all Some of the staff I worked with on my assigned ward were awful, especially on my first week, never helped me or showed me how to complete tasks such as the epicare which I have never worked with before . On two occasions I left work crying. If you want advice, apply somewhere else!!
Friendly kitchen staff
My day is very busy it entails alot of physical work. I have to care for upto 35 residents who suffer from Alzeimers and varying degrees of physical disability also. The residents are on special feeding guidelines which must be adhered to. Sulervision is very important to maintain their safety. It is enjoyable and worthwhile work.
Not a great company to work for at all !management dont care about any of the hard work their staff does. Literally only seeing has a number and not a human, if you have a voice and stand up for yourself or residents and report abuse noting does be done about it!! They would do anything In their power to get rid of you! They only care about you running yourself into the ground!
I was interviewed for a managerial position with Mowlam. I was not allowed to view my work environment or meet staff prior to starting. The job was not what advertised, too much to put on one person, with little to no resources offered in order for me to do the job well. The management are inflexible, uncaring of the staff or residents. The standards of cleanliness throughout were appalling.
Cant think of any
Too many to list. Dont work here.
Awful atmosphere, stressful, fast paced pressure for minimum reasons, always short staffed, constant turn over of staff. Owner has no time for residents or staff only the accountant. Extra duties that would lie on senior staff given to junior staff. Management changed rosters when hiqua arrived. Pros : anyone can get senior or a cnm post if you want it for your cv.
A terrible, greedy company. Residents and staff are at the bottom of the list of priorities. Staff turnover very high due to horrendous conditions. Residents left waiting for assistance for long periods due to lack of staff. Little entertainment and activities for residents. I worked with some really amazing, caring girls but sadly the workload was too great and the management too greedy.

Worked as a healthcare assistant . Made so many friends . Loved the buzz and the friendliness of the home. Management always on the floor , helped out if we were stuck she has great banter with us but we knew as well not to cross the line with her. Families were grateful and thanked us , then there was the difficult family members that just made work difficult but we were always supported by DON. We understood we would have the bad days but the good would over ride the bad All in all fabulous care team and I enjoyed working there .
Helpful management, free dinner, friendships
Salary, difficult family members
