This workplace is fast-paced and productive. you have to work in team to meet the required tasks. The management is good however shifts are not permanent which may prove difficult for some who require a solid routine. The workplace is fun and energetic and interacting with the residents can really make your day. The job can become difficult if deadlines are not met, especially when overtime pay is not provided.

Senior Management has no understanding of how things operate in the field.
The financials are all smoke and mirrors

There is not even an HR person on the team
Pros
Great Clients
Cons
No support and the Company does not yet know the direction they want to head in.

You were not paid for time spent before your shift setting up (expectation was to arrive 1.5 hours early in the morning) and you were not paid for extra time spent finishing off at night. ( up to 1 hour). Whilst the pay rate looked good, it was not actually that great if you spread it over your total hours worked. The staff were lovely. The environment was nice. Not enough training. Thrown in the deep end too quick. Just too much unnecessary pressure on staff to work at a ridiculous pace that could be easily rectified and managed better. I would have stayed if I had of got paid for the hard work and hours I worked.
Pros
Friendly staff
Cons
Not paid for hours worked.

working at this establishment was very enjoyable even if at times, very stressful. learning how to manage myself was important. there was not much room for error if you intended to keep to the schedule but with proper staff and good organisation everthing ran smoothly. day to day work did throw up some challanges but nothing that wasn't managable, or that could have worked around. this kind of work is not what I want to pursue, it was just part time work as I studied.
