Nineteen years with this organization which was good.
Pros: close to home.
Cons: it was a 24/7 position, difficult to separate work from your personal life.
This was my first animal shelter that I had in the twenty one years. It came with all of the same issues as the other two would later on and made it a heart wrenching place to work at times. The staff was not open to making changes from what the previous manager had in place and over time were simple replaced to make much necessary changes and improve – more... the conditions for the animals in the shelter.
Management lacked in that their belief systems did not agree with several of the district managers of the four districts.
Housing and utilities and a vehicle were part of the compensation package making this a wonderful experience and place to raise my family despite the hard times that came with this line of work.
It was a 24/7 position living and working on the same premises. – less
