Pros: seeing the smile on residents' faces
Cons: a lot for one employee to take on.
A typical day work consisted of serving residents their food, bussing tables, and washing dishes. Though it sounds easy, some days were a little harder than others. I learned a lot of patience since I worked with elderly men and women who weren't always in the best moods, but I truly loved working with them. Working with them all day was the best part of my job.
The hardest part of the job was the fast pace, sometimes time just moved too fast and it seemed like you couldn't get everything done on time. Also, how hot it was in the building; elderly people love 70 degrees even if it's already 90 degrees outside.
My coworkers were very easy get along with and it was typically easy to do work with them, even people who weren't in my department.
All in all, I actually really enjoyed this job even if some days were tiring, but all jobs are like that.
