fast paced salon
manager of tracey's tan and beauty (Former Employee), sunderlandAugust 7, 2014
Pros: being the manager
Cons: long hours
beauty therapist managing my fast paced salon in Sunderland, the day would start with checking my appointments and preparing the salon and staff for the day ahead, i was accountable for the day to day running of my salon, A meeting would take place before the salon doors opend and all staff involved with operations would talk about ensuring the salon meets sales targets and constant flow of new products on offer. i learned that its very important to have a good comuiciton skills with my staff to ensure the smooth running of the day to day tasks so everyone know's what they have to do and my clients feel at ease, the hardest part of my job was making sure nothing went wrong, the most enjoyable part was seeing my clients happy and my staff . healthy bank balance too.

Direct Care Worker (Current Employee), Aiken SCJune 30, 2014
I was hired to work second shift. When I'm scheduled for those shifts, I supervise the children in my care. I really enjoy working with the younger kids; the nursery is my favorite. We play outside a lot. I enjoy working with this age group to teach them positive social interactions as well as working with them to do for themselves; like feeding and communicating their needs.
Sometimes I work with school age children (6-12 y/o). They too have a lot of outside activity. I chaperone field trips as well as direct behavior.
More often lately I have been assigned to 3rd shift, where I supervise the children while they sleep.

Great Experience
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Royal Oak, MIJune 2, 2014
Pros: working with a great team.
Cons: the royal oak branch was well known for being short staffed.
A typical work day at Helping Hands revolved around multiple staffing needs and busy phone lines. As a result, I learned various multitask techniques and the importance of exercising my organization skills. Management usually worked side by side with staff members and provided their assistance when necessary. Although, various co-workers had different obligations, we managed to work together to assist with accomplishing the organizations goal as a team. The hardest part of the job was dealing with a short handed staff although we managed to get through each day with an above average performance. The most enjoyable part of working for helping hands would defiantly be the positive results of servicing each and every patient.

Personal Care Assistant (Former Employee), Norman, OKMay 12, 2014
Pros: great boss, wonderful pay
Cons: not always enough to do, sometimes clients were too demanding, such as asking me to do things i wasn't authorized to do.
The owner was an honest and wonderful person. She worked very closely with me and helped me deal with issues that would rise out of dealing with people. She encouraged me to stick with it. I am very grateful for her. She made a better person out of me.

Office Manager (Current Employee), Evansville, INApril 4, 2014
Pros: great company
Cons: company closed
I worked for this company for 2 years. I was hired to be the Office Manager. The company is very employee friendly. They respect t and work with their employees. The expect the best, yet they always give their best. They are not slow to roll up their sleeves and work side by side with their staff. They have an open door policy and make you feel always welcome to come through the door and shut the door. Again, a great company to work for.

Home Health Aide (Former Employee), Barberton, OHMarch 31, 2014
Pros: calm workplace
Cons: no health benfits
The job as a whole was relaxing and worry free, I learned so much far as caring for some whome I wasn't related to. My co-workers and also the management team was amazing and everyone was cohesive, I mean we worked so well together in order to get our daily tasks completed and so that the client was comfortable in the privancy of their own home. The greatest task was see the client suffer in pain or declining but the most enjoyable was when the client was happy positve active day.

Nice Work Place
Caregiver (Current Employee), Knoxville, TNFebruary 10, 2014
Pros: its light work
Cons: not enough hours with client as need
I love the people and the environment I would come in clock in wash dishes, sweep and mop, walk the dog, clean, sweep, and mop the bathroom, assist with making the bed, assist with personal care...

I learned that patience is the key

The hardest part of my job is leaving my client knowing that he/she wont have anyone to help him/her until the next day

The most part of my job is to make sure my client is happy and feels safe at all times
