I recently left my job at a small college that I was at for 8 1/2 years for a major university. I've only been here a little over a month, since October 14. Recently I've been feeling homesick I guess you can say for my old job. I think I feel this way for several reasons: 12 hour days now and having to travel, compared to 8 hours and being close to home. I have kids (12 & 4) . Has anyone ever felt like this? I've had a few friends that left our... see more

A big stress-producer for me as a home healthcare provider is maintaining a good work-life balance. It takes vigilant attention and discipline to follow-through with my commitments for interests outside of my home healthcare workday world. Personal discipline and scheduling is simple and sometimes it is not always easy to pull off. When I see to it that my life includes equal parts of recreation, family, fun, and down-time I bring a renewed and... see more

the shifts in the way they work were very convenient for my lifestyle if I couldn't work the morning the afternoon or the evening would have been available for the same day so it still wasn't a productive day regardless of me missing one shift I had an opportunity to make another one

Looking forward to engaging customers, keeping the shop spotless, following up on maintenance recalls, and managing an efficient filing system. I was a full time student during my tenure with Heralds Garage , so being able to earn money while being an exceptional student really kept me happy.
