Un travail dans l'isolement
Préposée au bénéficiares (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONSeptember 19, 2013
Pros: rencontrer différentes personnes (clients)
Cons: l'isolement
C'est un travail difficile physiquement, car on doit soulever des clients et les installer dans leurs chaises roulantes ou autres,
C'est un travail qui se vit dans l'isolement. Il y a peu de contact avec l'employeur car les assignations se font par téléphone.

L'aspect le plus difficile, c'est l'isolement, de se sentir seule dans mon travail. Je suis – more... une fille d'équipe, je crois à la coopération et à la collaboration.

L'aspect positif: le contact avec les gens, car ils sont souvent isolés eux-mêmes et j'ai côtoyé des personnes en fin de vie, et ce fut une expérience inoubliable. – less
