Alright place to work - horribly organized, stuck in past

They still feed the residents using the pyramid food method which is not the prevailing dietary standard of today. The adminstration and documents were archaic and unorganized. They were in binders stuffed to the brim with records, etc. per person. I would imagine it could be much easier to do online - as many of the other sectors were transferring over. When I had my first annual review, the superiors brought up a few things that had happened a very long time ago which I found to be very disorienting. There was no indication the whole time I had done anything wrong - and the information was relayed to them incorrectly in the first place. I really don't like that they had this idea of me as a worker for months without telling me and letting me defend myself. 12 hour shifts are nice. They go by surprisingly quickly.

Pros

free lunches, work four days a week

Cons

no communication, miscommunication, poor training

Very racist

The only racist company I have ever worked for. Yes they hire people of color but they do not make you feel comfortable and if you are under probation be very careful, one report from someone and they fire you especially if you are of color. Avoid at all costs.

Supportive

Best employer I have ever had. Outreach and housing is my area. The hardest part of the jobs is walking along side people when they are going through difficult situations.

Good Company

MPA is a good company to work for and the kitchen staff are all friendly and fun to be around. There needs to be some improvements made outside of the kitchen with management and understanding that it is not a big facility but stil needs a few more staff for cleanliness purposes. It would also be nice if there were better lines of communication between BC Housing and Fraser Health so things that need to be done, get done.

Pros

Good people to work with

Cons

Management could be better outside of kitchen
