Gideon – September 27, 2012
As a professional in the Health Industry, when I am on travel, I will sometime review the evaluations of the healthcare industry leaders in the area inwhich I am working. Here is one that upon listening to the representation in the field and the many comments on job search engines, I believe may be helpful. Have you ever heard your conscience say: Stop! I should slow down and think for a minute. I need a job. This sounds like a great place to work. I have many sought after qualifications and more than adequate experience. My reputation is highly regarded. HOWEVER how desperate am I? If I don't do my research, this could obviously be a bad decision. This would be what I would be thinking if I were in your position seeking employment. Based upon some of the posted comments for this location, I may want to reconsider working for someone who has a reputation of taking advantage of others. Its sounds like the disrespecting, discarding, and simply dismissing has left many past right at home workers on the outside speaking out on what happens inside. I have learned that all the money in the world will not buy the respect and career satisfaction people want. Respect is clearly what the owner has lost, If history reveals reality, eventually this lack of consideration for his employees will cost him his reputation. Having worked in this industry before as a provider on the west coast, you do receive a worthy wage and words of gratitude in this demanding business. Yet it seems that the only one receiving those perks is the owner in this office. You need to think this out. Ask yourself, do I really want to invest my life, energy, time, and talents where they appear to go under foot and most likely will not be considered as valuable? My professional advice to you is: In this industry, once what you contribute to the agency has been sufficiently exhausted, you will move on. Who would want to work for this type of person in addition to the demands of the service itself? The task of management or as a care provider is demanding enough, let alone the constant concern for maintaining the hired-for position itself. From what I have read about this location, the management probably jokes as one person leaves their post by asking each other: 'Ok, who's next'? One day 'Karma' will submit an application. What an interesting interview that will be. As for my opinion I would say- "no thanks. I will keep looking" Maybe this evaluation of gathered details will help someone not waste career steps going down this path. Be smart, take the road less traveled. If you are ever in Fresno, looking for work in this field check out the local 'homecare' offices. I discovered job satisfaction 'instead' of frustration. Plus, it's California-What's not to like!
