DIET AIDE (Current Employee) – Somers Point, NJ – February 1, 2017
Unidine is still growing and finding a firm foothold at Shore Medical Center. It's all about teamwork and working together to make a successful experience in kitchen, cafeteria and providing meals to the patients.
Being able to interact with the patients and put a smile on their faces.

They make a lot promises and they come up short all the time the short of workers and they work everyone to last drop their system are little bit crazy you had to come up with your own way to understand them. Recipes are not match, district reps they don't have a clue on what it is going on. A lots of gossip, discrimination of ranks, some district reps come and diminish people, abuse them verbally, offending everyone a lot HR abuses and on salary staff they work 6 or 7 days and they don't get compensated at all.
bad company to work for it people at the top don't know what is going on in the field
Chef Manager at Mc Aully Center, Farmington Hills (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – August 11, 2016
I arrive at 4:30 am every morning and meet with the kitchen supervisor to go over the days menu. At this point, we place orders if needed, put stock away, attend daily meetings, assign cleaning tasks, check refrigerators for compliance, assist and train the staff. We laugh and enjoy our job but we are also serious about it to. We learn something new every day such as you can use "thick it" for any sauce to thicken it up and doesn't change the taste. I have a passion for what I do, so it would be hard if I was unable to do it. Some days are good and others are better.
Fast paced, friendly environment with fresh ideas and new experiences
Sous Chef (Current Employee) – Farmington, CT – May 25, 2016
- great company to learn with -loved getting to know fellow employees and customers -management staff works with employees with great dedication -learned how to better organize and manage multiple tasks - co-workers may be great or a bit unbearable to work with, however management has been great at building a cohesive and positive working environment for all employees - best part of the day was seeing customers enjoy the food prepared, having customers remember my name, and asking for me when I was not on the line
Lunches available, many learning opportunities, mon-friday jobs, interacting with customers
Unclear expectations at times, expensive benefits programs
server (Former Employee) – Elkhart, IN – April 29, 2016
youre never appretiated, the bonuses or raises they say youll get you never do. the boss lies constantly and they steal your money my one paycheck i was 3 hours short of my normal 80 hours but i was $200 short explain that. they couldnt. if you are short staffed or need help dont expect your managers to help you theyll leave you on your own. theyve made hubbard hill a terrible work place the food tastes horrible the residents are unplleased and the workers are treated terrible on a daily basis.
Dietary Aide (Current Employee) – Joliet, IL – January 8, 2016
I've been with Unidine for over a year and i have been worked to the bone. The mangers don't like to help. They do not appreciate you taking your off days to come in and help out other shifts. They tell you your getting a raise only to say your not. They tell all part-time when hired that if needed they can call off but must bring in a doctors note, which is fine in all but not everyone has money to keep going to a doctor for a cold, which we was told if we had one to call off because we work over food. They now tell part-timers that they cant have personal days or vacations. I've never worked a job that told part-timers that that is utterly ridiculous. Most people work every Holiday and they don't get a switch with others. that is unfair ya'll need a better management team.
Line Cook (Current Employee) – Lawrence, KS – April 1, 2016
I love the job. All my coworkers are awesome and management is alright. They could be better organized. The hardest part of the job is when multiple people call out so we are short staffed. Everybody kind of helps each other get their work done. It's a good work environment.
Time and a half for OT, good hours, free uniform, amazing coworkers
Health benefits are expensive, understaffed most of the time
Sous Chef/Kitchen Manager (Former Employee) – New Canaan, CT – November 9, 2016
This company Unidine is garbage to work for. STAY AWAY at all costs. Work you to death. Too much work for one person to do. Severally underpaid and unappreciated. Management is dysfunctional and clueless at times. They ask for new ideas and then shoot down everyone. I left to work for a rival company.
Cook Supervisor (Former Employee) – Rockford, IL – June 27, 2016
A typical day would be not having ingredients to prepare meals. and then being told to follow recipes exactly. Management was horrible. One of the worse experiences of my career. The co workers were insubordinate and cared nothing about their job. The hardest part was watching the residence suffer. I can not say that there was anything enjoyable about this work enviroment.
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – Somers Point, NJ – January 6, 2017
I worked here for about three years and the people were like a second family to me, it was a nice place to be but it did have its bad days as well. If it weren't for the friends you make there the job wouldn't be as good. All in all you wouldn't be miserable working here.
Dietary Aide (Current Employee) – Rockford, IL – October 5, 2016
I think that working in Unidine is fun , But the staff needs work and management does to. When working mornings and afternoons you have to be there before your shift starts. You have to be fast and quick.
Former Manager (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – January 13, 2015
It all starts at the top. CEO is the biggest egomaniac I have ever met. Plus he is quite literally the cheapest boss. Has no regard for anyone not in his inner circle. Has no honor or loyalty to the people who helped him actually do the dirty work. He couldn't boil water, but expects his facilities to produce 'culinary' miracles with the cheapest products, so he can get the biggest kick backs. No support in the field, but a huge office staff at corporate. All to support his Unidine Way that was really created by former members of his team that he cut loose when they outlived their usefulness. Stay away, far away. Do not trust anything they tell you, it's all lies.
Productive and perfessional also had a very good work enviorment
Server (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – November 20, 2016
Everyone worked together if we needed help. The enviorment was good and we came togther as a team to get the job done. There was a lot of lifting, standing, and pushing so we all helped out so there was no one left behind.
I worked for this company for 14 months at two different properties and the food service teams went through 6 food service directors at one property and 7 in the other. This company does not have a strong communication culture and treat their employees like dirt. I will NEVER work for them again!!!
