Excellent learning curve

I enjoy working as a dental assistant especially when operating the dental chair for the dentists. We also have a good relationship with my collegues, the most challenging aspect of the job is that there are no promotions.

Pros: no great oppotunities for promotions
Cons: long hours of working with less salary

work growth, great team player

Working at public hospital can be challenging meeting different people with with different characters but this does not change my attitude toward my work because I am friendly and hard working person ,focused, great team player and quick learner each an every projects given to me I complete them successfully before deadlines. Challenges of my jobs is shortage of resources in public hospitals. Being around with different people taught me life is not about individuality but love and respect for others can adds value ones future.

Pros: In 5 years I see myself in senior position managing important portfolio in South African companyies
Cons: 8 to 12 hours per day

Very high work load; poor support; toxic work environment.

Specialized tertiary hospital working in adult psychiatry. Supervising final year OT students from the University of Pretoria and also from MEDUNSA. Working in the firm assessing and treating patient with a variety of psychotic disorders. Doing group and individual therapy. Working alone in my firm, doing two or three therapists' work. High case load on a consistent basis. Difficult interpersonal relationships in general in our department. I have a good work relationship with my subordinate and with our other three subordinates. I also have a good work relationship with our MDT (two social workers, two psychiatry registrars, clinical psychologist interns, clinical consultants, and nursing staff). Unfortunately, the OT Department is experienced by myself and colleagues as a toxic work environment.

Pros: Specialist learning in the field of adult psychiatry.
Cons: High work load, working alone in my firm (doing at least two therapists' job), poor support.

Being able to take decision and account on matter that arise ,being able to supervise other staff

Started working as an intern ,which it gave me an expirience to deal with different people from different cultural backgrounds. I have gain or i learnt a lot on,how to deal with the behaviour and attitide of our clients ,nurses,doctors and other staff. Sloving a conflict and trying to come up with solutions tht will make both the client and the employer happy ,and being able to make decisoin and to account on whatever is happening on my section. Most challenge was the changes in policyvof the Department regarding the benefits of the employees,but i,am able to,interprete and give them in black and white paper what the policy is saying .

Outstanding career path.

I started working as a community practitioner in 2012 after graduating at Mmabatho Nursing College,2016 was studying Healthcare Management, 2017 I am currently studying Occupational Health Nursing with university of Freestate doing 1st semester and writing my exams.And as my day to day I have learned that working as a team guarantees a job well done especially if tasks are being delegated to meet time stipulated. And one is able to learn each and everyday. And the challenges most of the time are staff shortage but wprking together as a team helps because if one is done with duties they are able to help tackle what is left in order to achieve one goal and all is achieved with communicating better.

Pros: 100%
Cons: 12 hours shift .
