    It should also say:
    Must be able to accept no credit or Thanks when you’ve done a good job. Handle extreme stress and pressure and deal with some of the most arrogant people on the face of the planet all for a measly 33k.
    Supervisors never question why there is vacancies every few months. Apathy!

    I agree with you. It is the same way in Fire and Rescue. Very stressful job, no appreciation for hard work and dedication. One of the most ridiculous work schedules I have ever heard of. Then you throw in no leadership, no body standing up for what is right or wrong.

    Oh wait they’d need a LEADER in order to keep people from leaving, and effect positive change… nevermind.

  • Interested Citizen

    That is right. Someone that really knows how to lead people. You are correct in saying effect positive change.
