CULINARY ARTS INSTRUCTOR AND SERVSAFE PROCTOR (Current Employee), Washington, DCMarch 18, 2014
Pros: lunch, benifits, love of the job
Cons: not enough money
I love teaching Culinary Arts, and ServSafe. Creating Menus, supplying deliciously safe and sanitary food. My co-workers adore me, because I am a hard working, and I'm always willing to go the extra mile for my team. The most enjoyable part of my day is the students I teach. Their willingness to want change, and the passion to make it happen.

DCCK, is a community program for under-employed individuals who seek a new lease on life. they work with any and all types of people and help out the less fortunate to the fortunate who just want another title under their belt.

My time at DCCK, was and still is well spent. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. the staff and team are top notch. Always – more... willing to help o
you when you need it and when you don't think you need it.
I would recommend this place to any and everyone who wants to learn something that will grow with them. – less

Driver Supervisor
driver (Former Employee), washington, dcMarch 21, 2013
Pros: not hard work
Cons: bad management
The Supervisor was nasty, treated workers different, you needed to be in the click to get his approval. He spoke nasty to you and let his buddies get away with not holding their weight he covered for them. Allowed some workers and his self to ride other people in the vechicles that were not employees. He needs to be watched and the employees.
