New Zealand Department of Corrections Employee Review

It was a secured job as the job is always there. I have been working shift work for 8 years however I managed to balance work and life.

I would like to be part of team who have the same passion and objectives. I have learned about the team effort is more successful than the individual effort. I have always treat my team with respect and integrity. The hardest part of the job when the team have no passion about the job. Clear and concise communication within the team is the most enjoyable part of the job because everyone have the same knowledge about the job.
