Productivly fun with plenty of activities, positive things!
Residential Assistance (Current Employee) –  Kotzebue, AKOctober 31, 2014
Typical day at work, its just like being at your own place, yet you are their for the clients to make sure they do a good job on their living situation, I've learned that these type of people needs a special kind of attention due to there mental disabilities. Management is great! They do there best at keeping the program up and running. Co-Workers are there to help if needed. Hardest part of the job is to see the clients when they are at there worst, as in sick, sad or if they are having a bad day. I would do my best to change there attitude, I would talk to them and let them know that I am there to help them, and encourage them to see life as a beautiful fun filled journey. The thing I enjoy about this job is that I get to work with people who needs assistants on living needs, and just to work with people with mental issues.

Very fast paced environment, enjoyable.
Lead File Clerk (Former Employee) –  Kotzebue, AKFebruary 1, 2013
Minute you walk into the office, work is ready to be done, from checking that medical records are pulled and ready for appointments for the day, to processing said medical records. I've learned how important it is when working with patient records, you need to be very organized, and make NO mistakes at all. Management was good, very strict as expected, but not over-whelming. Co-workers were typical, most were dependable, but as usual, some were not dependable at all. Hardest part of the job was having to put in extra hours to cover unreliable co-worker's shifts. Most enjoyable was the environment, good, friendly, co-workers, and always had something to do to stay busy.
Pros
overtime pay if needed to cover extra shifts, tasks never ended, so was never dull.
Cons
unreliable co-workers.

An adventure and experience
Director of Community Health Services (Former Employee) –  Kotzebue, AKMarch 16, 2013
The best part of Maniilaq was the people. Working in an environment that was 85% Inupiaq Eskimo taught me a deep respect for other cultures and social norms.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with patient complaints. Most of these were very trivial and took time to investigate and respond.
Pros
good work environment
Cons
working above the arctic circle
