Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Trail, BC – 10 October 2012
It is a friendly workplace. I have learned that it is essential to listen to the resident's needs and wishes and that you need to make sure that they feel at home. It is our job to make sure they feel welcome and that we attend to their needs. Communication among co-workers is crucial. The most difficult aspect of this job is that it is very physical and takes a toll on the body. I enjoy interacting with the residents and listening to their life stories.

There is illusion of equal opportunity and advancement, however time and again you see/hear of ones being overlooked. Training is lacking in many roles and support not provided where required. Managers tend to hire based on personal preference (and pre-selection) versus on actual work experience.
