Fulfilling job providing meals to the elderly and homebound.
Driver (Former Employee), Staten Island, NYMay 25, 2012
Arriving promptly to work I would prepare the hot meals along with my co-workers. I would drive a refrigerated hot oven truck to different routes each week. My co-workers were always eager to assist one another. The hardest part of th job was accepting the fact the within life comes death. The most enjoyabe part of the job was the elderly and homebound – more... recipients were always grateful for delivering their meals each day. – less

I believe that are management team worked well and complimented each other.

getting the best meals and service possible from the food to the delivery's. – less
