Fulfilling place of employment with lots of interaction with people
Administrative Assistant, Housing Clerk (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON5 February 2015
This position had a high level of confidentiality required in working with upper management and in an environment of unionized staff. Responsible as Assistant to the Administrator and 5-7 Managers needs.

Constant management meetings required recording of minutes daily, processing and distribution to appropriate members.

Developed a new filing system as required by the Government changing from paper to an electronic system. Took 1 yr to develop and a lot of care to assure all documentation from all management had been captured for future reference.

Liaison for staff and HR when they had questions or problems requiring confidentiality.

Received calls of complaint from clients wanting higher level review of their case capturing all of their information without partiality and placement with proper management for followup. This required diplomacy as well as accuracy of recording the information.

Before retiring stepped down into Social Housing doing clerical recording of clients information into the computer program which deemed eligibility. Also helped develop policies and procedures for this new division for management.

Left to retire and took on part time work. There were no part time opportunities in the Social Services.
Pros
excellent benefits, good friendships developed inside and outside of work place
Cons
stressful at times

Super workplace; excellent co-workers salary and benefits
Staff Nurse (Current Employee) –  Orillia, ON15 February 2014
The hardest part of the job is to see the frail elder decline in health status. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to help them be comfortable and content. Management has a difficult job. Overall they do a pretty good job. My co-workers are excellent. Lifelong learning is promoted at this facility. A typical day at work is busy, busy, busy. You have to be organzied and know how to prioritize. You have to know your stuff to do well and be a value to the workplace.
Pros
We do excellent work.
Cons
Shift work
