Pros: i happened to work with a good team most of the time.
Cons: very caotic environment, inconsistances, unfair pay-scale, zero respect for everyone/anyone, management did not have your back, over-all lack of team work.
No such thing as a typical day, the flow of the day depended on who you worked with and how the rules had changed in the last 24 hours. I learned that life isn't fair. The management didn't know what they were doing, and it showed. They were inconsistent and intimidated by professionals. I had some great co-workers, but there were also some there that – more... were nothing less than dangerous. Just as an example, some would come to work, under the influence. They would be driven home, they would be replaced or left those still there doing extra and then return for their next shift without any consequences!! Others would be 'written up' for minor infringements. The hardest part of the job was trying to care for the residents while looking over your shoulder, if you know what I mean! I did enjoy my nights shifts, working with positive, productive staff and having 'space' from management! – less
