"The pay is bad. The children I work with are dangerous. I have been bitten, slapped, scratched and headbutted. My boss is unprofessional and insincere. She is rude to most of her employees and gossips daily about her subordinates. I take pride in my work ethic although I become depressed when I am scheduled to come in. It is rare to receive a “thank you” and her passive aggressive nature makes it hard to respect her opinions. She has made me feel bad for receiving a degree, offering help and making friendships with coworkers. I have considered going back to the dr. For antidepressants and antianxiety medication just to get through my work week. I will work 14 hour shifts and be on the verge of tears by the end of one day. I’d like to think more money would make it worth it but no, I am not a violent person and I am not comfortable performing restraints on adolescents with disabilities. I’ve been doing this for a year and it physically hurts to go into my job because I have no idea how many bruises ill be leaving with at the end of the day. I’m working on leaving but the market is tight although I remain optimistic its hard to find the motivation to go into this workplace."
