Child care worker

I worked with children so every day was different. Interacted with children, did nappy changes, fed the children, programming and planning activities for children to engage in play and extend their knowledge.

Good

Good place to work. The pay conditions are one of the best in local government areas. The staff and facilities are good. Transport is close at Rooty Hill depot. And a 10 minute walk if situated at Riverstone depot.

Good place to work.

Jobs varied over the years from caring for children to running the centre. I learned all aspects of early childhood and education as well as workplace health and safety, administration and communications. The management varies depending on who is in. Generally as a policy driven company responses can be predicted. The hardest part of the job is completing the 'same' paperwork several times for different departments. The most enjoyable part of the job was ongoing learning and self improvement opportunities.

Pros

No limit to opportunities.

Cons

Paperwork.

Bureaucratic but trying to do better

Culture clash between old school staff, many who have been there since teens and staff from commercial cultures. Lack of attention to proper procedures and too much corner cutting.

Pros

very good award with flex and overtime

Cons

bureaurcratic resistance to corporate "can do" not helped by a crash or crash through CEO

Experience filled job opportunity

As an admin assistance I was at a desk all day which wasn't my type of career at this point in my life. As I was covering the position for someone on long service leave it was easy to complete the two months without too much stress. I was thankful for the opportunity and experience which helped me clarify what I was seeking regarding employment and a career.

Pros

Approachable Manager

Cons

Brain numbing work

Great Employment benefits

A typical day at work is busy and an 8 hours work allocated is not enough. I have learned so much at work including; how to deal with difficult customer, marketing strategy, time management and etc. Most of co-workers are team player, senior staff refuse to play their role during busy time. Hardest part of my job is the long hours work and not enough staff provided by the management so I have to carry on and do and responsibilities to deliver on what is expected from me. The most enjoyable part of my job is everything. I love events and like to be challenge.

Pros

good salary, flexible working hours

Cons

not enough staff to give assistace within our units
