I had about 30 minutes of work that I had to make last all day long on most days which makes for some very long, unproductive, boring days and some days, like time card days, I had about 4 days worth of work management wanted completed by noon with many fires to extinguish, very stressful!!

Typical day can be 8-4:30 or an alternate schedule. Have enjoyed working with veterans. Hardest part of the job is hearing traumatic stories, most enjoyable part is seeing people make progress.
