Summer Job/Intern Program (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – January 12, 2018
Martha's table also gives back to the homeless and less fortunate so it was nice to do something good for other people who need the help. This business not only serves as a clothing store but also a way to help other in need.
Quick paced place to work with high energy children.
Intern/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Washington City, DC – October 9, 2017
The typical day at Martha's Table consisted of working with high energy children. Majority of the time the staff were well mannered and seemed eager to work. On the other hand, some of the staff members were nonchalant with the requests of the parents.
Cashier (Former Employee) – DC - District of Columbia, DC – March 24, 2017
typical day at martha's table was really relaxing and chill not that rushed. I learned how to work on my people skills and learn how to calm a costumer down if they're having a bad day. Also I learned how to stock things and take care food and make sure everything was clean and healthy. The management was fine and everything was just nice it was a well organized job. The hardest part was just the commute to Maryland and D.C. so nothing really was bad probably just hours. The best was seeing the customers smiles when I would help them out.
Martha's Table was a great place to work;coworkers were nice .
Pre-k Assistant Teacher (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – September 7, 2016
For the almost 7 years that I worked there I would say there were great accomplishments! Experiencing accreditation was the major one, however, the accomplishments of the children must not be under rated. I saw children achieve things they never thought they would. There were time when things got stressful but love of children caused me to hang in there.
free lunch was a big deal also access to the clothing store was a plus for all.
Assistant Researcher (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – June 12, 2016
I come in around 12:30pm and have lunch that the kitchen staff has prepared around 1:15pm. Then I travel with a Market Leader and Chef, along with my coworkers on this project and we help in setting up the market along with distributing fresh fruit and vegetables to the community and conducting research in the form of surveys and open ended questions. This company is like a family. They work together and always have fun in everything they do. They work towards a common goal with a positive cause in mind. If my position wasn't temporary I'd love to stay here.
Volunteer Assistant Director (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – May 22, 2016
Typical day was greeting parents & of course the children. I learned more communication skills than what I already had. The management team was very professional & the Director was always helpful. The coworkers were very friendly & patient. The hardest part was potty training the children. The most enjoyable part was being around the children.
Outdoor activities, being around children of different ages.
It was a productive and nice way to spend my time during the summer

Workshop Facilitator (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – December 14, 2014
I was working with a summer program that had with high school students for 6 weeks. It was really fun and a nice way to give back to the community, the only issue that came about with this job I blame on timing and events which can't be predicted. This summer that I worked here the head supervisor's father died so he ended up not being as involved in putting the program together as he usually would have and left his second in command in charge. She was unprepared, it was a 6 week program and in the 1st week she asked the employees to give her a supply list which we did but we didn't receive the supplies until the middle of week 3. So needless to say the program didn't run smoothly. But I believe that if the original supervisor was there things would have went smoothly.
Finance Department Clerical Assistant (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – June 16, 2014
I love the fact of the opportunity provided to me, I was able to learn and had hands on experience in two departments at the same time. I was able to start learning Human Resources and Accounting experience. I was able to learn from creating a new employees file to enter employees benefits information in the system and also helped process payroll.
Tutor (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – October 7, 2013
I was young when I started working here. This was a place where the kids from the block used to go to. Everyone knew everyone. The management there were always on top of your work and wanted you to do great at the job. The most enjoyable part of the day was helping kids out and feeding the homeless. I learned a lot while I was there.
Volunteer- prep and Server (Former Employee) – Kalamazoo,MI 49007 – December 3, 2012
One day a week 4-6 hours, fast paced. Had to be very independent. I learned how to manage time lot more effectivley. Also so I learned that no matter how different a walk of life may be you'll never know how easily you can end up in a tight position. My co-workers were wonderful I still keep in contact with all of them and we had a blast serving our clients.The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the smiles after they've been given a warm meal. The hardest part was having find away to make food stretch when head count exceeded the amount of food food available.
