Pretty good
If you’re good with a fast paced environment, it can be very fulfilling and fun. Work gossip can be a drag depending on who you work with, but watch out for the management depending on location. Decent starter job to gain new skills, definitely didn’t regret it.

Great place for a fast-paced work environment.
Work at Berwick was fast-paced, and stressful at times. Those who are organized and efficient, and enjoy working alone, would be a good fit. I found myself extremely rushed to complete tasks.

Challenging yet rewarding at the same time
Working at Berwick was honestly a very challenging experience. You are compensated quite well for your hard work. However, you will not always feel appreciated by the management or colleagues. The residents are generally very sweet and kind. However, the biggest challenge is definitely to be on top of things and carry top-tier organizational skills. When you make a mistake or error, you will very likely be confronted with that mistake. It might make you feel worthless and not deserving of your position. However, with time and practice, you will learn to get better to ultimately become a fantastic team member.

Fun workplace, cheap company
If what you're looking for is a side job, earn a few extra bucks and play into your compassionate and loving side, working at Berwick is great for you. Because if you don't love working with seniors, the payoff will seem very minimal for the amount of emotional and mental effort you will likely end up putting in. They keep pay low, hours minimal (almost nobody except a manager gets full time), and keep employee recognition scarce. You will work with fabulous people, both coworker, manager, and resident-wise, but the company does not value its employees. There is also little opportunity for advancement within the company - most people become successful elsewhere before having a shot at a management position with Berwick. The hardest part of the job on the day-to-day can be working with residents; even though that is incredibly rewarding a lot of the time, you do have to remember that they are elderly people and you are serving them in their home, so the expectation can be high and sometimes unreasonable (and often above your pay grade).Ultimately, working for Berwick was enjoyable in a lot of ways, and I gained a lot of talent and experience. But I don't see how anyone can afford to make this their primary source of income.
