Personal Care Assistant (PCA) Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Personal Care Assistant (PCA) in Melbourne:
They are getting rid of good long term employees for cheap casuals from Papua New Guniea through a govt subsides scheme; HR spend excessively on own offices and perks whilst sacking staff needed at aged care and making remaining staff work for two people yet paid for one. HR knows they do not have to advertise for casuals and do not train the properly so if they mess up they get sacked and replaced quickly. Bullying is massive and the greatest bullies are in HR, so it stinks from the head.
