Hi everyone , I just wanted to share

this that happened to me just before to start my job in 2 days .

somebody of my friends , let's say people that I know , asked me if I definitely get the job a LTC .

I said yes to her. And she mentioned the name of the facility , and I said well yes . Than she said to me that I will be treated like crap by my coworkers (other cnas ) and that she wishes all the good for me . This person just made me feel so bad and wanted to already quit without started yet. Lol I feel so so disappointed . I know this was her experienced since she worked there before . I know everyone talks depends on how your experience was . I can not explain all the horrible things that this person told me about this place . Specially of the other cnas in the facility . ;'(

i do really need this job since I ve been looking for a job 4 month ago . When I got certified . :( and no hospital or rehab center will hire me without LTC experience . I live in jersey what do you think . I just want to wash my brain from all of this garbage that people just put in mind. Thanks for all your input in advanced .

There are always going to be people who like to stir up trouble, no matter what industry it is. There are also many factors we don't know here. A wise man once told me that there are three sides to every story: My side, the other person's side, and the truth. You've only heard your friend's experience. It is never a good idea to allow someone else's experience to taint yours. Give it at least a couple of months before you decide one way or the other. An open mind makes all the difference in the world.

It also depends on how you approach the situation and the job you do.

Go into willing to give it your all. Help your co-worker even if they don't help you.

Do the best you can with what you have (good team work or not) and realize that this is a tough job no matter how you look at it.

Stay positive and out of the dirty gossip and you will be fine no matter what.
