We had a typical 8 hours shift in the morning and afternoon, graveyard shift was 12hrs. Overtimes were not paid.
We were able to integrate with other co-workers of different races.
It was fun, somehow, being around the people I grew up in the healthcare profession. I was able to find friends with my colleagues.
The workload was tough and draining, especially the graveyard shift, but after receiving positive feedback from patients and their families, it was all worthwhile.
Continuous skills training and education.
Unpaid overtimes and difficult to claim hours.
