Maintenance DIrector, Grafton, WI - November 14, 2017
Enjoyable, but as a resident myself it is problematic in that living here - I am subject to the elderly - who are asked to do otherwise - but who continue to knock on my door or call me at all hours directly for every little thing (perfumer fell behind dresser etc). I enjoy helping them but as the only "go to" person, I have no privacy living here, can't sit in the common area to read a paper or visit without several residents coming to me to tell me what isn't working today. Protocol requires that they fill out "Maintenance forms" and submit them. I am to take my duties from the building manager only - but the residents don't follow protocol - therefore I am forced - for privacy reasons - to spend excess time in my apartment or go out of the building to get some time alone. For these reasons I've identified a new "younger" resident who recently moved in who is willing to take over these duties. For that reason - and wishing to remain active - I am seeking "work" outside the residents to keep busy.
