I just moved to mass and I recently just got a job at a LTC facility/Rehab 10 mins away I live. First of all the interview was a joke because they never even really interviewed me but just asked me what shift I prefer, and if i want f/t, p/t etc. As well as when I would be able to start. The same day (today) they called me back to offer me the position but the only problem is their orientation is only 3DAYS!!! I'm like wow! I already accepted the job because starting salary is $32 an hour! I also just went on an interview at a psych hospital and their starting salary was 24.50,(both pays are not including differentials) with much more orientation, this psych place is literally 5 mins away from me.
My question is, is that really enough time only 3 days of orientation as a a new grad???? I feel as though that is nearly not enough orientation for a new grad. I need help I had already said I would take their offer but I'm honestly wondering is the money even worth it or should I just go with the psych hospital to which I know my orientation will be longer but my pay is less. I am sooooooooooooooooooo nervous as all heck to start a position as to where I only have 3 days orientation, also I wouldn't even be on a a specific floor everyday but like a float which makes it that much harder because I have to get to know so many patients. I'm seriously about to forget about the LTC facility and just go with the psych position. BUT IS THAT WORTH IT? IS THE PAY WORTH IT? HELP I'M SO NERVOUS I'M SUPPOSED TO START ORIENTATION THIS WEDNESDAY!!!
