Pros: i worked days, so i was always home no later than 6pm
Cons: no room for advancing.
I usually had two house in a day. Four hours sometimes five at each house. I would make breakfast in the mornings and then do their shopping goals for that day. I would also do their laundry. Once leaving there I would go to my afternoon placement make their dinner for the night wash their cloths and run errands for them that they could not do. I didn't have co-workers. I worked on my own, their was an on- call person I would have to call if a client didn't want to answer their door, but I didn't have an official manager. But the on-call person was very pleasant.
The hardest part of the job was going to areas that I had never been to before, and sometimes the areas were dangerous and the houses were so untidy I wouldn't know where to start. Also sometimes the clients views would class and they didn't want you in their house. That was really hard, because sometimes it would be a long trip out their and then they wouldn't want you. But the company would reimburse you when that happened.
The best part about the job is that I had a lot of jobs in Manhattan and I would love that because I love the city. I would also get some great clients who made up for the ones who didn't want me- some who always wanted to talk and share stories from their youth. And I really loved that fact that I worked alone.
