A stressful, harzardous, and sometimes risky place to work, with not much fun to compensate.
Pros: Meet people of various race, etnicity, language, culture, and profession
Cons: Being exposed to hazardous cleaning chemicals, people with dangerous communicable deseases, and being supervised by people not qualified or trained for such position.
A typical day is some what stressful, and much was not taught to employees at my level except, what was directly related to the job. Management was chiefly concern with getting the job done and very little about improving employees' life in general or, work life for that matter. My co-workers were generally good people; helpful and cooperative, willing to go the extra mile, and supportive in times of off-the-job difficulties. The hardest part of the job for me was seeing the the suffering of sick and elderly people, and not being able to help them in a tangible way. My most enjoyable aspect of that job was, forming a meaningful relationship with patients or inmates that they appreciated.
