Same role

Had its perks but challenges, also.

I found the particular environment where I worked flawed by inconsistent management and unclear expectations. There were moments of brilliance, but overall, it proved to be a place of inside confrontations, and held a sense of unease. This is because of favouritism, bullying, work related back stabbing, which I have come to realise is quite prevalent in organisations such as this. Overall. it could be a source of a lot of satisfaction, if placed correctly with the appropriate work colleagues, with a clear vision of the situations at hand.I learnt the workplace culture is one to navigate around the best one can so as to be able to be productive at the highest standard.,

Pros

Hours, Holidays, people eg, children, variety.

Cons

Staff challenges, lack of communication. Unclear expectsations.

Primary School Teacher

It can be a very rewarding career if you love children and working extremely hard. You never get to switch off. Parents can be very painful and over the top. There are also very supportive parents out there who along with some children, make the job feel very worthwhile. It is not easy to gain a permanent teaching position, but from my experience if you are good at your job it is very easy to pick up casual work and long term contracts.

Pros

Good salary, rewarding

Cons

Always have work to take home, never switch off

Overall a great place to work

I enjoyed my time with the Department, I was able to advance my career from a Control Room Officer working a 7 day rotating roster to a Customer Service Officer on Flex Time. The majority of my work colleagues were great to work with. I was a little disillusioned with the Management. I was able to learn different duties so that I was able to be utilized in other areas of the Department. I was also able to start a Social Club to raise funds for our Christmas celebrations & other activities where we could raise money for charity. Saying goodbye to my colleagues.

Pros

Free secure car parking

Cons

None
