Maintenance Engineer (Former Employee), Nome, AK – December 13, 2014
Sometimes working there was a challenge, but with the help for my senior coworkers. I learned quite a bit like repairing J traps for sinks and how to change oxygen tanks. The cool about working there were coworkers and there stories of they're younger days.
Nice place to work. Good to give back to the community

Preparing dessert dishes first. Run the tray line, and delivered meals to patients. Learned how to puree foods, and speciel patient diets. Management could have improved. Hardest part was washing dishes and cleaning. Most enjoyable was preparing food for patients and making them look good.

The hardest part of the job is getting used to being in an area where you can only fly in and out of. Sometimes you feel stuck so to speak because you can't just get in your vehicle and drive. You either have to buy a 4-wheeler or snow machine because there is only one place to rent a vehicle and it's at least $150 a day so you can't rent a vehicle all the time. I enjoyed being able to help transition into a new facility.
