I’ve worked as a substitute teacher for years, in-between full-time positions and when looking for full-time teaching positions.
For the vast majority of the time you are treated by school administrations and teachers alike as if you are a piece of human garbage or a ghost who does not exist.
I cannot count the number of times, [...]
I really hate nursing. I have done everything at one time or another in my 20 years on the job. I did 2 years med-surg. I did 8 years ICU/CVICU. I did 7 years as a DON for nursing homes. Then 1 year again in ICU. Then the last 2 years [...]more
I’ve worked as a school paraprofessional at multiple schools and feel it’s very necessary to inform parents and those considering paraprofessional jobs of what really goes on.
The facts are that for the vast majority of paraprofessional positions, no education beyond a GED is required (and even that can be worked around by taking a “keys” [...]
I have lived my whole life wanting to be a nurse like my mother. I chose a difficult path by having children first, but I had a career plan and stuck with it. Little did I know that the nursing profession/medical field was taking a turn for the worse and would send me into downward [...]more

I am a fast food worker and have been for 5 years. During college, I decided to work at one to gain extra money to keep me afloat. I was crew and of course it fine at first. The restaurant at the time was slow and I basically felt that my minimum wage pay out [...]more
Once upon a time retail was a GOOD career, indeed having started at 17 years of age (I’m now 56), it has been my life. Until Morrisons took over Safeway! Now thank god I have taken early retirement.
The gentleman’s company of Allied Suppliers, better known to many as Lipton, Maypole, Galbraith, Templeton and [...]
I have been a nurse for 37 years. I can’t retire yet because I’ve worked in nursing homes and I don’t have a retirement plan.
Nursing has changed so much in the last few years, I would advise anyone not to pick this profession. The state dictates the work and workload (amount of people needed to [...]
I have been a manager at McDonalds for six years and employeed for a total of 8. During my time in management, I left and started a job in real estate but found my way back to McDonalds within 12 months.
It was unbelievable the respect I was automatically given for the simple reason I [...]
