Dental Assistant in Watertown:
Do your research before falling into the wrong hands!
I was missing dental assisting and found someone looking. I trusted what they told me and am really sorry I took the job! Dental assisting is suppose to be a very rewarding job ~ well at least it use to be! I took a huge cut in pay but was reassured I would be compensated after my trial period. It's now over two years...YES I said two years I have stayed at this place! I'm not a quitter for the most part and quite frankly I am currently interviewing in other offices. I have only been handed more to do, have my hours be in the on call form, constantly disrespected/cut down, nothing is good enough! Red Flag also is telling have allot of write offs in the insurance area = you or anyone else is not getting a raise! Meanwhile office remodels being done, new BMW in parking lot, hundred thousand dollar home remodels being done, trips to Europe, cruises, and so on...Can't pay you what we promised!! I work hard and want to be paid the same!
