on August 31, 2015

The day to day experience of working with residents and fulfilling their daily needs was very rewarding. The hours were 7am to 7pm. A typical day was to come in the morning and prepare that days breakfast. Once done serving breakfast you would wash dishes and clean to begin prep for the next meal.

Love the people I work with but the pay needs to be better. Nothing like making $17 an hour with people's life in my hands. Knowing Starbucks employers are making $23 an hour making coffee. Healthcare system is broken and needs to be fixed ASAP.

Ascension encourages a work life balance that is achievable! They truly value me, diversity and inclusiveness. I feel like my team is family! The benefits are also amazing, with extra perks and attention to our mental well-being. It is the best company I've worked for!

Nothing to say really the company was sold multiple times. We were always told our jobs were safe when in fact our jobs were not safe. Our entire department was closed. If you want job security I would not recommend that you work here.

Lack of support, mandatories and not very many friendly people. After I finally got the courage and went to another local hospital had a much better experience immediately.
