Good place to work because of the people you work with and the client.
Unit Manager (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – February 5, 2013
A normal work day is providing 3 1/2 meals a day. A new resturant type of system, ordering all products on-line from vendors. Management is very helpful in developing new programs. The co-workers are very team orientated. The hardest part of the job was having to commute for 2 hours daily. The working enviroment, client, learning new ideas and the co-workers.

Manager (Former Employee) – Camp near Little Long River, Kapuskasing, Ontario. – April 11, 2016
Great Company, Great People, Love the Camp Job - It has its own wonderful discipline. The co workers and the client in a way become a family bringing on achievements for both. A very refined work culture, the pace is thrilling, and it is a kind of second home.
Cook (Current Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – February 23, 2016
I enjoyed working with my co-workers, I find that I work alone majority of the time. Not much training I was put to work right away.The hardest part of the job is when I need more training, in different areas instead of being thrown to the wolves. You learn pretty quick some guess work.
House Keeper (Former Employee) – London, ON – January 12, 2016
Terrible management skills, and when you work above and beyond you don't even get a thank you. A lot of favourites. All the employees including full-time are all hawks and snakes. Its a good paying job, but just don't talk to anyone, trust me. Go to work and work, do your job and leave.
Takes a very long time to get on full time, over 5 years.

Janitor (Current Employee) – Prince George, BC – November 13, 2015
No matter how hard you try, there will be ongoing criticism from multiple contradicting sources. That said, the ongoing criticism is one of the only indicators of the actual job description. Because of the multiple parties that are making demands, the workload is impossible to complete. Equipment falls apart when you try to use it; when you bring this to their attention, it will be locked out for a week and then returned to you in the same condition with a statement that it is "fixed". Whether you have the equipment or not, you will be hindered in accomplishing the task that that type of equipment is required for. You will then be publicly humiliated on their Wall of Shame which posts weekly audits and a white board that announces shortcomings for all to see. There is also the constant threat of being fired if there are too many "complaints" from one of the sources of your workload.
I have witnessed a worker who was BADLY and permanently injured ON THE JOB, being aggressively treated by assistant management, in front of an audience, as though she were practically a criminal. She is supposed to be receiving assistance to do her "modified" workload; but instead was put working alone in the busiest area of the facility. She has to work through her breaks and stay late (without pay) to get it done, and is in excruciating pain.
Assistant management is aggressive, power hungry, domineering, hypercritical, vindictive, uncompassionate and has no management skills whatsoever. Management put her in that position, because he felt she had potential. Management seems completelymore... oblivious to any of the issues and can't understand why there is such a high turnover rate. It was actually implied to me that I would have difficulty finding things to do. Management believes the Wall of Shame inspires "healthy competition". All it does is discourage a group of already burnt out workers.
Then you will receive your paycheque which will not be enough to live on. It is usually as close as possible to minimum wage.less
The work team is a group of very nice hardworking people
Impossible workload, constant criticism and threat of termination, assistant management bully, wage
