I didn't know if it was intentional or just a typo/secretarial-administration miscommunication.I have also been lured in for a day position, And then it turns out to be nights. They will post the most desirable shift. Then at the interview break the bad news to you.
- 3Jan 29, '13 by CapeCodMermaidAs for the day positon turning into a night position, maybe there WAS a day position that was filled before YOU had your interview and there was still a night position.I've done the interviewing and hiring at most facilities I've worked at. I never sugar coat it. I tell the person straight out that they will be busy from the beginning of their shift until the end. I tell them we staff higher than the state average but people call out so there might be times they are working short. I tell them some of the people they will be taking care of act like the devil incarnate, but the other ones who smile at you for no reason are the ones who make working here worth it.Why should I lie to just get someone in the door only to have them find out the truth and either hate their job and grumble all the time, or quit leaving me back where I started with a hole in the schedule? It takes a lot of time, money, and energy to hire a d train someone. I want to make darn sure they know what they're getting themselves into.
