Not a stress free environment
Temporary Food Service Worker (Current Employee) – North Las Vegas – September 26, 2015
I work here in food service. I haven't worked for a school district before. I didn't think this would be a stressful job but it is. If someone didn't take the correct temperatures on cold food, EVERYONE gets the blame, even if you weren't there at work when it happened!! It's too many "cooks" in the kitchen. Everybody wants to show you how to do something their way. Simple isn't good enough. It has to be difficult. Student workers are lazy, they're loud, they steal food, and they don't follow directions. Directions are constantly being repeated.
The cafeteria manager is not being consistent with the flow of work. One day is this way, the next day is that way. She frustrates us and the student workers. Coworkers complain daily. The pay is low, hours are short, and we're overworked. School district doesn't want to pay us more, make us permanent, full time, or pay benefits. Its hard to become a 4.1 level employee. From what I see, 4.1 level employees don't do manual labor like us temps do. It's less responsibility.
It's probably a high turnover rate. No wonder why they're still hiring... No one wants to work these short hours with low pay, not even senior citizens. Cafeteria managers and their supervisors don't know how to treat their workers nor do we feel appreciated.
Overworked for less money, short hours, no advancement, temporary, no benefits, understaffed
