PM LIne Cook
Pm line cook (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON3 December 2018
Absolutely the worst job I have had in my 35 year career. Days are long , But the main problem is the workload. its the kind of company that wants to make everything from scratch but does not have the staff in place to do it. Management are self centered and make staff do there jobs as well as your own. The only place I ever worked where Chefs have to serve coffee. The only benefit to this job is the free food. I would defiantly think long and hard before working for this company.
Pros
nothing
Cons
to many to mention

It's like a cult that leaves the seniors who pay through the teeth..nothing
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Woodstock, ON22 August 2018
Undoubtedly, a rip off for the residents. Terrible food choices and budgeting. Typically what you might expect from a huge profit run organization focused on filling rooms and cutting costs.
Pros
regimented environment
Cons
management unwilling to discuss all the problems present.

Kitchen Staff (Former Employee) –  Guelph Lake, ON6 September 2017
Responsibilities are straight forward but the working environment was tense and distracting due to new system managers changing every few months. I feel sorry for the residents as they are ultimately the ones that sense the tension.
Pros
Great residents
Cons
Expectation after being hired that I would be available on my days off
