Healthcare Assistant (Former Employee) –  North Shore City, Auckland26 September 2016
They were generally good to work for but the work eventtually dried up as all the permanante positions were being taken up by new immagrants to the country and these were registered nurses taking healthcare assistant positions therefore the Bureau become less and less used except by the immigrants and evevtually they started a thing called a resource team and that was the end of it.
Pros
Original staff were good to work with.
Cons
Long hours

HEALTH CARE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Taharoto Clinic26 August 2014
Team work was a major factor in this position and I found that the support from co-workers was excellent.
Management was mostly very supportive.
I found it very hard to be firm when someone was being restrained for an incident because it was a very upsetting procedure.
I leaned a great deal of empathy for people in general whilst employed in this position.
Pros
Seeing clients happy when they got to leave well & ajusted
Cons
Restrining unwell clients when they have a meltdown
