Knowing I can make someones day brighter is well worth it.
Pros: semi-flexible hours
Cons: no benefits, raises, working late hours
I love what I do, but I am in need of a career that will come with health care benefits and a more secure placement, I go to different clients homes throughout the day and help them with any cleaning or cooking they may need. I also take them to their doctor visits, hair appointments or any other errands they may need done, The toughest part of the job is not knowing how long I will have the client, I need something with more secure job security. I have been with the health department for almost two years now and still have yet to see a raise, Living on minimum wage in this day and age is tough and not getting paid near what I should be is discouraging.
