How many hours do you work as a ADON?

  1. I interviewed with HCR Manorcare this week and I am waiting to hear back from them. In the mean time, I read many posts on this forum and noticed that ADON is not 40 hrs/week type of job. Bummer!

    How many hours do you typically work each week as a ADON?

    And if you could also share what makes you enjoy your job, it would be great!

    I am a ADON I work about 45-48 hrs a week. Does not include on call hours.

    I accepted the offer. I am excited that it will be a great experience! Although I have a feeling that work-life balance might be something that I will have to sacrifice...

    I usually work 45 to 50 hrs. Per week. I would have to say that my favorite part of the job is that it's always something different from one day to another. The ADON usually gets most of the "odds and ends" of things that need to be done... So that leads to a lot of variety.

    All depends on your DON's expectations.

    My MC boss was fine with us putting in 40 hrs / week.
