Manager, Human Resources (Former Employee), Provo, UTDecember 10, 2015
Pros: Free Meals
Cons: No breaks
Discover Academy was a pleasure to work for. The clients came from all over the nation and all had different upbringings which was great to talk about but at times difficult when one client bumps heads with another due to different upbringings. I had the pleasure of managing the residential side and was able to work side by side with the therapists and school advisers. Each client had different needs and constant training were given to the staff to help them out in assisting the clients in their personal growth and development. The therapist were great. The activities were well thought out and prepared for. The advancement was limited until someone left the company or you stood out among the other employees. I kept training the staff to take my position to motivate them and leaders did prevail. The benefits were just the general. All in all, Discovery Academy was a fantastic company to work for at that time in my life.

Kitchen Manager (Former Employee), chicago,ilSeptember 21, 2014
Pros: creating my own menu plan
Discovery Academy was a great energetic place to work. I was in charge of preparing menus as well as meals & encouraging children to try new foods. I've learned how to budget & maintain product cost. I worked very well with my co-workers. the hardest part of my job was leaving because I know the children will not get the diverse, nutritious meals they most likely don't get a home. the most enjoyable part is seeing kids enjoy food of all kinds And they encourage their parents to cook foods they otherwise wouldn't.

Excellent In all aspects
STAFF SERVICES COORDINATOR (Current Employee), Provo, UtahMay 26, 2012
Pros: respect, room for advancement, excellent staff morale
Cons: no breaks, none really needed ever.
The company treats its employees extremely well and provides them with opportunities to advance and grow. I love the fact that I got paid to "play" such as hiking, skiing/snowboarding, fishing, etc but still was provided a more professional training and treated with respect from all.
