What can I say government contract food service operation.
Poor management.
Zero leadership.
Zero mobility.
Zero employee development.
Low wages attract unskilled and unengaged employees.
Management strangles labor to gain budget based bonus program.

Productive and fun work place.
Assistant cook/Cashier (Current Employee), Vancouver, WAAugust 5, 2014
Pros: summers off
Cons: not fulltime
When I get to work I first prep pizza, then salads. Set up for lunch and work cashier during, cleanup after. prep for next day. I learned the importance of prepping ahead. My manager is very hands on and very fun to work with as well as my co-workers. The hardest part of my job is telling a child they have no money in their account. The most enjoyable – more... is seeing the kids everyday. – less

An easy going work place.
Barista (Former Employee), San Angelo, TXAugust 5, 2014
This job was a nice job for me with being in college. They worked around your class schedule and any activities you would have going. The only negative say I have about this place was they tend to be very unorganized about training you about a certain positions. They would just put you in a place and you would just have to figure it out from there.

Bad Workplace Attitude and Lazy Management
Grill Cook (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTJuly 14, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: poor management
Management relentlessly picks on employees when they have no other tasks they need to attend to. The atmosphere while fast paced, is negative with many employees constantly fighting, arguing, and swearing at each other. I would not recommend working for this company.

Dietary Aide (Current Employee), Anderson, INJuly 2, 2014
My day begans around 9 a.m when I begin to prepare my work area for the day. I start with seeing what items I will need to perform my job for that day. I then begin to prepare those items & get ready for open. During the day I keep all items stocked and ready for the next shift to come in. My favorite part of the day is in the morning when im preparing – more... for the day. – less

Food Service Staff (Part Time, Salaried) (Current Employee), Missouri, MoJune 19, 2014
Pros: free lunches

Work there at Chartwells is good. Sometimes its hectic. But I still find it good. Working there has taught me how to balance things in life and taught how to sort things with priorty. The hardest part of the job is when there are lots of events during the same time. But the most enjoyable part is it is fun working around with so many people and learning – more... new things. – less

Great Workplace
Culinary Work Study (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCJune 10, 2014
Pros: free lunches, scheduled breaks, and flexible hours.
Cons: being a work study worker you couldn't go over 10 hours a week. would have loved to work more hours.
I would help the employees and Interns prepare food for the students at Johnson & Wales University at Charlotte, NC. I would be moved around from the gluten free, menu-tainment, pizza, and hot stations. I learned a lot from fellow peers and class mates. I learned several techniques that can be used in the kitchen. I also gained more experience with – more... handling time more wisely. The management team were very professional and friendly. They cared about their employees and made sure they knew that they cared everyday. My co-workers were also very friendly but professional. A lot of the employees I worked with were fellow peers and class mates. The hardest thing about my job was having to be prepared to cook for 600+ students. The most enjoyable part of my job would have to be the hardest part of this job. I enjoy cooking for large crowds. It may be a challenge but just knowing the students were satisfied is an explainable feeling. – less

Awesome Place to work
Grill Cook (Current Employee), Pocatello, IDJune 7, 2014
Pros: great socializing experience. awesome people to be around
Cons: off when students are off (christmas, summerbreak)
Its a really fun place to work. Love my co workers, though some are quite lost but still awesome people. Love the management love my boss, such a great person.

The hardest part of the job is not knowing how many people will be at your station. But its not completely overwhelming.
The most enjoyable part of the job would have to be the socializing experience – more... of it all. you get to socialize and get to know students while cooking for them. – less
