Dining Room Worker (Current Employee) – Hershey, PA – August 23, 2016
Typically I would come in a review what food needed to be prepared for the dining room salad bar and deli bar. I would then prep anything that needed to be done and stock the paper goods. When lunch was prepared and ready to serve by the cooks I would serve and clean the line as the employees went through the line. I cleaned the tables and cleaned to line once everyone finished eating.

A typical day is surrounded by nice staff and its a very welcoming feeling. Theres always something that is willing to be done and thats a thing you like about a job.

Transitional Living Coordinator (Current Employee) – Hershey, PA – February 16, 2016
Working with students without the expectation of anything in return is at times exhausting. However the school is a community and a home for staff and students. Therefore there is not a lot of room for having a personal life outside of work.
Supportive, never the same day, Free Lunches, awesome benefits, PTO
poor work life balance, Schedule, meetings and inconsistent
Providing a rewarding experience with disadvantaged children
Houseparent (Former Employee) – Hershey, PA – November 8, 2015
I lived in a student home where I prepared students for duties and responsibilities as they progressed into adulthood. Management would perform weekly visits and/or meetings to track students development and well being. The position required long work hours, 6:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. The most enjoyable part of the position was watching young minds develop.
Long hours, difficult separation from work/family life, management did not allow independent counseling based on individual student needs
Life and career Counselor (Current Employee) – Hershey, PA – October 6, 2015

Event Worker (Former Employee) – Hershey, PA – August 26, 2015
Was really pleased when I was accepted to work at MHS, but was not given the 29 hours I was told they wanted me for. They were unorganized which made it difficult to know what was expected of you from day to day. Co-workers made it enjoyable as well as working with the students. Loved getting to know the students there and build relationships with them. Sad to leave, but had to in order to advance in my career.
