for those who dont know,have got two support staff at all times and at night there is one waking night [someone who stays awake all night] and one sleep in staff [someone who sleeps in the office].
waking nights are always the worst shifts to find good support staff,especialy agencies because they think they can get away with sleeping as they often get moved around a lot.
recently,had gone to bolton head office to help interview a possible waking night for self, the lady has a young son with severe autism as well so had some understanding as to what it is like for self,and she said she wanted to use what she learns with em/self to use on her own son.
on the face of it was the best waking night staff had ever seen,she had very clear english-easier to understand than many native english people that know,explained things in a way was able to understand and she was just very caring with out the patronising and gave a damn.
it wasnt just self that liked her but so did the manager and other staff in the interview to.
have just found out one of the references the company recieved from previous job places she has worked at were asked if they woud employ her again and they said no,but for legal reasons aparently they cant put why.
am gutted because really liked her, does anyone know what kind of reasons woud make a company say they woud not employ a person again?
am going to ask the manager to see if they can hunt down what went on,if she has made some mistakes but learnt from them woud see no problem in having her here.
