Pros: great coworkers, friendly house manager, semi-flexible work hours
Cons: no scheduled breaks, no proper training, verbal abuse from clients, no enough pay to stay full time
This company is crooked. Their turn over rate is higher than anywhere I've ever seen. The training is not done by management. They appoint another staff member to show you the ropes. Luckily, I had two great staff train me. We are "trained" to pass medications to the clients, but it is really a job for a nurse. Clients have all the say. As a woker, you have NO RIGHTS. It's their word against yours. There are many things not told to you in training. You will have things happen. They include, but are not limited to, being hit, spit on, degraded, pinched, bitten, have things thrown at you, and have your life threatened. It is sometimes a daily basis thing, unless you get lucky to have laid back clients. As for management, within my group of workers, the management is great. As for higher than that, meaning those who have the cush office jobs, they couldn't care less about you. They make the good money while you put your health and safety on the line every day. As for benefits, I'd go elsewhere.
On the plus side, when the clients have good days, they are fun to be around. Either way, you connect with them and they do be come a part of your life. Mainly because it seems you live at Bona Vista due to the high number of hours you are having to work. I enjoy the work I do, I just dont like how the company operates. If you like this kind of work, feel free to apply, they are ALWAYS hiring.
Also, the pay. You start at $8.25. In the past year there was the first raise in who knows how long. You will soon realize that $8.25 is NOT going to pay the bills and is NOT worth what you deal with.
