i enjoyed to work as a childminder and a cleaner
cleaner or childminder (Former Employee), Cape Town, WCJanuary 24, 2014
Pros: i had to have my own lunch
Cons: my day start at 8:30 to 5:00 sometimes i went home earlier
everyday I enjoyed to be at work because my employer was a sweet person. I learned that treat someone's property as yours so that you can work well together. she was a wonderful person who you like to work to. I was alone because it was a private house, but I think I can work well with other people because i used to work as a cleaner.

i felt like i was at home, it was really comfortable and I was happy with that job.
Caretaker (Former Employee), Redondo Beach, CANovember 10, 2013
Pros: i got free lunches, and a new family.
When I got to her house I would pick her up from her bed, give her a bath, and make her breakfast. I would also give her medicine, get her to exercise, give her massages all over her body, and get her to walk around for a few minutes in her house. At noon I would make her lunch, and give her all her vitamins, and I would also do her laundry. Through – more... all the days that I've worked for her I learned so much. I learned how to have more patience, to never give up no matter how hard things got, and how to enjoy the little things in life. All of my co-workers were really nice, and understandable. The most hardest part of my job was when she was dying. The most enjoyable part of the job was when they told me that I was part of their family. – less
