i have worked in as a support worker in a home for the dissabled for 7 years,and am due back in 2 weeks after my maternity leave
the thing is whilst i was away from work i have been debating whether to return or not,so i decided on trying a couple of other jobs out,i was interviewed for a caretaker in school opposite and the other doing home care.i got both jobs but decided on taking the caretaker job,the home care seemed peeed of with me about it
so i started the job in school only after a week i realised it was far to heavy for me as i would have to move tables in and out of the building as they had excercise classes there in the evenings so i gave it up,they were disapointed as they were happy with my work there
so i grovelled back to the home care who took me on,i like the home care but i feel im a bit of a jobs worth as u only have half an hour per client and that half an hour includes travelling to and from there house and onto the next client.the supervisors seem to be poorly trained themselves and did not seemed very clued up on things,infact towards the end of the evening the girl i was working alongside was saying to me "tell me if im doing anything wrong"
after speaking to a supervisor it seems there is chances to get promoted with the agency but the pay isnt that great considering u dont get petrol allowance and because i always work over the allocate time slots as personally i feel if the client pays for 30mins they should get the full time they are paying for and not leaving 10 mins early to get to next client,
anyway today i had a text message of the caretaker asking if i could go back to work there if they arranged for someone else to move tables etc for me
i just dont know what to do for the best,i have cut back my hours to just every other weekend in my long term job so i can do 2 jobs but which should i do,i just cant decide and i dont want to mess people around
sorry for boring u with this
