Meaningful work, unhealthy environment
SNAP Outreach Worker (Former Employee), McCarran, NVFebruary 6, 2013
Pros: serving others
Cons: hostile work environment
Working at the Food Bank of Northern Nevada offers you a unique opportunity to serve the community. The work is purposeful, enjoyable, and relatively stress-free. The work environment, however, is very unhealthy. I worked there for two years and saw numerous employees come and go due to slander, bullying, and nepotism. Although I loved the work, I eventually – more... left due to management's repeated failure to address abuses on the job. – less

Interesting, busy,
Agency Field Representative (Former Employee), Reno, NVSeptember 4, 2012
Pros: meeting people, the travel
Cons: gossip, the organizational structure
In my position I would meet with various agencies and clientele of the Food Bank of Northern Nevada. I would either work at various mobile pantries or at a Parking Lot Distribution where would deliver mass quantities of food to partner agencies who had their own food pantries.

Our service areas were all of northern Nevada and some of eastern California.

One – more... of the hardest parts of the job to work with was the favoritism and gossip. My manager had received unfounded rumors about me and in the end it cost me my job. – less

You wouldn't think that there was so much politics in a company that was severing the needy. After 3 months as the Volunteer Supervisor I was let go because of political reason is what I was told. I really like working with all the volunteers that came in and gave up their own time to provide help.
