This was to be what I thought, a new improvement for me and my family. I started working at the Antigonish Shannex in January. I was under the impression during my interview, that I would be a valued employee. Boy, was I fooled. The staff were always cranky and very clickish, there was only one person I could trust to talk to about issues that arose during my shifts. The upety ups were rude and very strange, not personable at all. The gossip and laughing behind others back was childish and disrespectful. I loved each anf every resident and they liked me, and I think thats what happened. They liked me more than the ones that were there for longer time than me and were not used to such a friendly staff person!!! Bye bye, so long. I was given my probationary release after only two weeks! Was informed in a matter of fact sort of way I was not a "good fit". No warning of being released whatsoever. Thanks Shannex, for making me see that I belong someplace where I am appreciated and respected!
