Director of Dining Services (Former Employee), Wisconsin – March 1, 2013
Pros: great pay and benefits
Cons: stress, lack of vision, lack of support
I was only with Morrison for a short period of time as a DDS. Morrison had the contract two months prior to my arrival and had completed nothing. They were $45k over budget in food, over in payroll, and had not done anything to mentor or educate staff. I worked 70 hour work weeks with no assistants and was under the gun to fix all of the problems. Staff – more... rebelled and did all they could to sabotage any and all progress I tried to implement. I did not get much support until the contract was in danger and was released with no prior warning. Even the support staff who came in at the end stated to me that morrison had these type of issues at many new accounts. With the right tools, I would have been very successful instead, I was overworked and over stressed. I hope they improve on this for future applicants/employees. – less
Part-time supervisor (Former Employee), Owensboro, KY – February 10, 2013
Pros: free lucnh, able to swich shifts
Cons: fast pace
Start the day by having team meeting with crew and expectations of the day and listening to any issues they may have. The most important thing of the morning was checking temperatures on refrigerators to make sure they meet state requirements also through out the day. Next creating orders to take up to patient rooms and then taking orders for the next – more... meal. If the work schedule did not have a full team or someone was missed work then I would have to distribute the work to cover everything that need to be done that day. Making sure that everyone took breaks and lunch on time because of how fast pace the job was most of the time.
I learned that supervising is not easy but I enjoyed it and I hope that I'm good at it. Improving my time management and people skills, but my favorite thing was that it help to become a good team player by have such a large work load as a caterer help and being helped was very common.
The management and co-workers there was the best I have yet to have the privilege of working with.
The hardest and most enjoyable part of the job was the fast pace of it. On most days i enjoyed it because it was a challenge which pushed me to be better at my job. But other days I wanted an easy day but had to make myself keep up but for the most part i enjoyed it. – less
Retail Manager (Current Employee), Lancaster, PA – February 1, 2013
A typical day includes handling money, doing bank deposits, scheduling employees, purchasing, inventory, managing budgets and most important managing employees while maintaining a strong client relationship.
Fellowship Village Senior Living Community (Current Employee), Basking Ridge, NJ – December 14, 2012
A typical day at work includes caring for the assisted living residents and making sure all their dietary needs are met while enjoying a nice meal. I have learned more about dietary needs and requirements in this job such as certain liquid restrictions such as honey thickened liquids as well as nectar thickened and certain allergies such as lactose – more... intolerance, gluten, peanuts, etc. My co-workers are very knowledgable and have taught me a lot about what certain people prefer when they have special dietary needs. The hardest part of my job would be the very long hours and not enough staff, which makes giving attention to the residents very hard. The most enjoyable part of my job is learning about all the residents that come into the dining room and their experiences throughout their life and knowing I am making their day just a little bit better. – less
The Values are not for the employees- awful in unit conditions
Nutrition Care Manager & Dietitian (Former Employee), PA – November 7, 2012
Pros: good benefits
Cons: no breaks, too much work, minimum raises.
The Company has a strong emphasis on their values/culture and required a lot of training ongoing in this area. However this system is to be passed on to the customer/client/patient even at the expene of the employee. I suppose if you have a good unit, you may be well treated. My unit was run otherwise- overworked and manipulating. Just not possible – more... to get the amount of work done and infringed upon personal time (no work/life balance)!!!! The company's overall goals are positive but in unit management supersedes! HR is located in North Carolina and the director is your HR Rep which is not a good model! – less

Team Member (Former Employee), Pascagoula, MS – August 20, 2012
I can not fault the job because it was my first chance when I got to the U.S., but the environment is not the most comfortable with, the co-workers were good but what we mean and Adminitración I can give them a 0.
