Family run business
The majority of the staff have been working at hallmark for many years and have become very close.
there were many occasions when situations were not dealt with professionally. I passed my 6 month probation in November 2019 only to be told yesterday that my services were no longer required with no acceptable reason.
If your face dont fit, you are out!
ConsNot happy with you working from home

Great place to work!
I joined this company over two months ago now. I have found the induction process to be good - the management team have been ever so supportive and the team here are great. I have never felt at home so quickly in a new role. I am left to get on with my job using my initiative but knowing that I have the full support of the team should I have any questions or concerns.
I would definitely recommend this home as a place to work!
ProsFriendly and welcoming team

Fabulous Family Run Business
After working for a corporate in the same industry , I found Hallmark a breath of fresh air ! Their values really do underpin the foundations in which we work daily and the teams are amazing. Because it’s a family business they are quick to respond to challenges and are always approachable and listen to you.

Good Place ro work
Checking emails and acting accordingly. Login to caresys and dealing with admissions and discharges . Dealing with telephone calls and emails, Queries from the homes, The hardest part of the job for me was calling families that have lost loved one chasing outstanding debt but from years back. Its was unprofessional to have been left so long and relatives can get abusive.
The team I work with were great mostly at times. Could have had more team players that helped others and not kept things to themselves. A very generous company and loved the family whom own it but they want there moneys worth an more,
Consthey need to listen more and accomodate there staff due to too much work put on them

Rewarding Place to Work
I have worked for Hallmark Care Homes for over 3 years and really enjoy my job. It is an incredibly rewarding role giving me the ability to help families though a very difficult time. The homes are second to none and offer a very high standard of living. Hallmark always try to achieve the best for their residents and offer support and career development for their team. I have been well supported in completing qualifications to advance my career. Great place to work
ProsBeautiful environments, good support, rewarding

Great Role, lovely Family business
I have worked for Hallmark for 4.5years and have loved working here! I have worked across 2 Homes permanently as well as covering at others, and find the atmosphere to be so warm, friendly and professional.
The Central Support Team (Head Office) have also been nothing but supportive to me.
It can be very emotional at times, but we all pull together to support in tough times. The Senior Team genuinely care about the Residents and Families, and I personally feel valued.

Really well liked by residents, families and team
A pleasant modern care home that is always spotless and a team that works well together. Stable management here for the last 18 months and a very full Lifestyle programme. If you want to know what it is like check the CQC report.
ProsPleasant working environment, nice people

Residents are wonderful,the end
For what the residents pay it’s not good enough, equipment isn’t serviced as often as required therefor resulting in staff injury, management is very poor compared to other care places I’ve worked for, there is a lot of nastiness among staff, bullying, you get paid peanuts for the job regardless of it’s day,night,weekend...if it wasn’t for the residents I’m positive half the staff would leave.
ProsSometimes if there is left over food you can have lunch or dinner free
ConsLong hours, poor management, poor organisation, not enough means to support some residents who should be in a nursing home

Great place to work
Since joining Hallmark Care Homes I have been supported to complete two professional qualifcations and have been promoted twice. The company is incredibly supportive and offers a great work life balance. There are occasional weekends involved in my role, which are actually quite fun and help you get to know other team members you wouldn't usually spend time with.
The company has a very good ethos and really values its team. We don't say the word staff here, we're a team, working together to achieve our goals.
ProsExcellent opportunities for progression, support for qualifications, happy culture and effective work/life balance

I have been at Hallmark Homes for almost a year and it has been a wonderful experience for me.
Training is a Hallmark priority and is informative, enjoyable and ongoing. Everyone is given time to learn at their own pace.
The whole team are friendly and dedicated. I find the Management Team understanding and approachable. I have not had any concerns but I am confident that if I were to, I would be listened to and my concerns would be addressed appropriately.
Above all, the most enjoyable part of my job: I get to see and chat to the Residents enjoying many activities and entertainments, in the café every day.
ConsCould benefit from a larger car park.

I worked at a landscape manager and general handyman. I honestly don't know what the culture is like now. I haven't worked there since 2003. It was a good place when I was there, however.
