I would Work Here Again
Volunteer assisant (Former Employee), Daytona Beach, FLMay 26, 2013
This was also a volunteer job that i did over spring break during my senior year of high school and I must say that i would work there again. Your setting up lunches for residents in the near by apartments and when your done giving meals to the assigned resident, you then feed the residents in the dining hall of the apartment complex.

They would in – more... an assembly line type matter, one person does the meat, another, the sides, another the vegetables, another the drinks, and so on. There wasnt really a hard part to this job but the most enjoyable part is just helping and feeding others that couldnt feed themselves. – less

The most rewarding act of kindness any person can do.
Volunteer (Current Employee), Allentown, PAMay 6, 2013
Pros: helping the elderly, sick and homebound. taking pride in helping people less fortunate than myself.
If you want to feel good about yourself and help others at the same time, being a volunteer for Meals on Wheels is the most rewarding act of kindness and compassion that any person can give. The people are so happy to see you deliver their meals and are so appreciative to have someone to talk to. In some of the people's lives the Meals on Wheels volunteer – more... is the only person they will see or talk to on a daily or weekly basics. Not only do we deliver their meals, we check on their welfare to make sure they're in good medical condition, have taken their medication and are safe in their homes. The kindness and compassion we give them and they give back is priceless. They call me their gaurdian angel with red hair. – less

A great volunteer opportunity where your efforts are immediately evident
Volunteer (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAApril 15, 2013
Pros: you feel the immediate effect of your time well spent
Cons: there aren't any
If you want to give back to your community, volunteering here is a great place to spend your time. You make a difference daily and you give the amount of time that you can spare. They happily accept one hour of your time if that is all you can spare, but you can't help but go back regularly and give more time. The other volunteers are friendly and this – more... gives you the opportunity to meet some extraordinary people with big hearts. – less

Giving back to the local community
Volunteer (Former Employee), Lawrence, KSFebruary 25, 2013
Meals on Wheels was a great way to give back to the local community. Throughout the years I have had about 3 different routes, meaning that I met a number of different families while volunteering there. With that being said, I was not paid, and this was strictly voluntary.

Volunteer at Meals on Wheels
Volunteer (Former Employee), Charter Township of Clinton, MIFebruary 11, 2013
This was a volunteer opportunity that I got in 2007. Everyone was friendly and I was able to meet some wonderful elderly people. The hardest part of the job was waiting for people to come to the door because sometimes it would take a while and I didn't just want to leave the house. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the home bound seniors. – more... A lot of them didn't have visitors and they were elated to see me deliver their meals. – less

It is a good place to work with lots of friendly employees.
Office Assistant (Current Employee), Massillon, OHFebruary 1, 2013
I have learned many things working with the Meals on Wheels staff. They keep me busy with filing, answering phone lines, assisting with billing, volunteers, and helping to keep track of the meal counts for each month. I enjoy working with the staff because they are friendly and assist with any questions that I may have about the work I need to do. The – more... hardest part of the job is trying to understand the elderly clients that call in to report days they will not be home. The best part of working at Meals on Wheels is the feeling of being able to help get food to those who are in need. – less

Lead Field Site Associate (Current Employee), Richmond, VAJanuary 9, 2013
Pros: flexiblilty
Cons: part-time
It is a great experience to work for Meals On Wheels. I have the opportunity to work with so many people and that is what I love to do. My work day consisted of coordinating volunteers for the daily delivers. I sorted and packed coolers for delivers to our clients. The hardest part of the day was the last minute call outs. I was have seconds to find – more... someone to find someone to fill the spot. That was a rush but it was always rewarding. Our goal was to ensure that no one went hungry. Awesome! – less

Senior Resource Connection (Former Employee), Dayton, OHDecember 27, 2012
Pros: working for a company that cares.
Cons: low pay, no benifits.
I think that one of the largest problems today is that people are unhappy at work, Senior Resource Connection allowed me to learn what serving the community really means. At SRC I saw first hand the teamwork it takes to ensure hot meals to thousands of people in need. No other job did I receive so many "thank you's" every day.

Great place to work
Administrative Assistant - Receptionist (Former Employee), Merrillville, IN. 46410November 19, 2012
Pros: free lunch, great caring people.
Cons: low pay through aarp
Working 18 hours per week as an Admin. Assistant. Answering phones and taking applications for service. Calling customers if there is going to be time delay for the delivery and checking on clients making sure that are okay and seeing that there are no problems when delivering food.

Co-workers are all nice and get along. We all work together to take – more... care of customer problems and concerns. Everyone will go above the call to get the food out to the customer Monday through Friday and truly are concerned about the welfare of clients.

Hardest part of job is that sometimes we don't have control over
the elements.

The most enjoyable part of the job is time flys, I like data entry and pride myself on accuracy. – less
