The hardest part of my job is remembering all of the 300 - 400 employee names in the building but i'm getting better everyday – more... (only started this job in January of 2013). The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to work with the public and helping them find what they request or direct them to the correct information or person. – less

I've learned how to be a good public health nurse...
NURSE I (Current Employee), Dagupan City, Pangasinan, PhilippinesNovember 17, 2014
Pros: program incentive (measles-rubella opv mass immunization)
Cons: health care insurance excluded in our benefits, no transportation allowance, etc
The most hardest part I've experienced was when I endorsed my 1 community barangay to our new hired fellow public health nurse. It was really hard for me to give up that most organized and self reliant community, indeed, but I had no choice.

I believed, it would be fair enough for our new co-worker if I'l give him my most organized community barangay, – more... considering the fact that he's just new to our world.

Just hoping that he would maintain or improve what I started. – less

the hardest part of the work its when you don't get feed back from the Head Office and Institutions. Especial when you are not rated in the Three months term.
The most enjoyable part its when you have stress and get encouraged by your super visor and create the same stress as a Joke. While being encouraged it makes you feel better after a while. – less

cool working place
Administrative Aide for Medical Assistance Program (Current Employee), Manila, P00October 22, 2014
Cons: no breaks
The hardest part of the job is not on how many patients arrive during the day,not on how many datas to encode,but it is on when you cannot help the person in need because of some limitations and you know that that person is so much in need of your help.
At the end of the day it still feels good because you were able to help a lot of people and you know – more... you have served them well. – less
