If you enjoy backstabbing and jealousies with your work conditions, this place is for you

as long as you tow the line and never speak out of turn, you will fit in there like a glove. Remember always talk bad about fellow employees , rat on people ,treat people with disrespect and complain to your union rep about everything and anything you will go far in this place

Interesting and social job.

Good work place culture but the pay is abysmal. The expectations they have don’t match what they offer. You’re frequently doing a job that isn’t yours. Management listens but they don’t have much flexibility on what they can do and there is quite a disconnect between national management and regional stores/services.

Very accepting, kind place to work

I really enjoyed working here. The cooks were always so nice and willing to teach while working. Job was pretty easy. Dish washing, stocking, delivering food to RA’s for patients, general cleaning/upkeep. Extra hourly pay as shifts were 9-7pm.

Not a great place to work

Worse place to work if you want to be a social worker . It mimics a cult , upper management does care about the employees and you work your life away to amount to nothing .

The job is stellar!!!!

The people I work with are STELLAR! Learning about service to the community. Upper management all around so understanding and helpful. Willing to work with employee's schedule for employment. Rare. Blessed to be apart of a team of caring people.
