Challenging place of employment with a lot of rewards.
STAFF AIDE/RECEPTIONIST (Current Employee) – Merrill, WI – August 8, 2017
From the time I arrive until the time I leave I am responsible for the welfare of many developmentally disabled adults. It is a job full of responsibility, constant change, many interruptions and plenty of rewards.
I have learned that you don't always need "things" to be happy. The simply pleasures in life are what really matter. I have learned that I can work with any type of person and am great at multi-tasking and being pulled away from what I'm currently doing and am able to pick right back up when I return to it.
Management is doing there best to see that the consumers are given the best opportunities they possibly can.
It is a loud, distracting but fun work atmosphere. There is a lot of work accomplished on a daily basis.
The hardest part of the job is just trying to stay up beat all day every day for those around you.
The most rewarding part of the job is that you truly help other people every minute of every day.
Fun co-workers and consumers along with rewards every day.
Some stress, working lunches and very few breaks to catch your breath.
