The manager at my aged care job spoke to me today. Apparently they had received some complaints from a couple of my co-workers and a resident about me being gruff and dictatorial/bossy. I was wondering when that was going to happen. I was wondering if I was going to stuff up and how long it was going to take before anything happened.
I have figured out about two or three co-workers who could and/or would have said something but I still can’t figure out which resident it was. I feel pretty shit about it as I thought I was doing better there than at the place I volunteer at.
On the bright side, at least the manager was nicer about it than the manager at the venue I volunteer at. They suggested that I take a gentler approach to things. I am pretty grateful that they decided to deal with it in an informal manner than doing it in a formal way. I really do want to keep this job so I’m going to have to be really careful about how I approach the residents and my co-workers.
