A typical day at work consisted of sorting out all kinds of foods. I learned that all foods must be checked before placing it in the boxes. Also, all damaged foods were thrown in the trash. The management team was very helpful. By providing a video about the job. In addition, provided hands-on-training as well. The workplace culture was a fast paced warehouse environment. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the pace in the beginning. The most enjoyable part was enable to feed families.
Nice place to work,if there were proper managements
Warehouse Associate/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – south flrorida – May 8, 2017
I believe the warehouse workers should be paid alot more then they are recieving heavy load of work long hours and very low pay, the operation team needs to be treated better talked to as human rather then DOGS.
Partner Services window (Former Employee) – Pembroke Park, FL – December 17, 2012
The Food Bank was a fulfilling place to work. I left Partner Services for about 2 years to open & operate Feeding South Florida's SNAP Program, but missed the daily 'chaos' of the Pantry window and all of the volunteers from the various agencies. Every day was 'hit the ground running' and keep up the pace until leaving each evening. The day flew by! To know how many people the food was reaching was the hook which kept me for 7 years until a new administration came aboard and decided to try a different approach; and my department was eliminated.
doing good for the community and being really helpful to all employees
lack of raises, healthcare was provided, but with a huge deductable.
Field Monitor (Former Employee) – Pembroke Park – November 20, 2012
When I first applied at FSL, I was beyond excited at the possibility of working for such a great organization like Feeding America. I quickly realized that working at Feeding South Florida's Pembroke Park location could only be described as a nightmare. The co-workers I had were a pleasure to be around but the management at this place was horrible. I noticed almost right away that there was a high turnover of employees at Feeding South Florida, so much so that it's shocking. Many people that were new hires, would either quit or be fired within the same month, or sometimes even within the same week. Please realize that when you work here, it's NOT the quality of your work that will be recognized but how many "friends" you can make. It's a popularity contest more than a job. The only positives, are that the facility is beautiful and the services they provide to the community are necessary and invaluable. In my opinion, the management at this place is not equiped or properly trained to deal with employees in a professional manner. You will form a great comradery with your co-workers though because you soon realize that this place operates on a "you" against "them" (Management) mentality. There are also alot of personal conflicts between managers, supervisors and staff within the facility which is extrememly unprofessional and creates alot of tension. I just graduated from college and was on Indeed.com looking for a job in my field when I came across this job posting. I decided to leave this comment as a warning to others, please consider ALL other options before applying here.
Great place to serve if you've got a heart for the community
Senior Warehouse Manager (Current Employee) – Pembroke Park, FL – August 16, 2012
It's a feel-good place to work, as the company provides food and other staples to the less-fortunate members of the South Florida community through a network of partner agencies. Not a place to work if you're in it for the money; the people there are in it for their heart to serve, but it's great to get paid for doing what you love! They have a comprehensive benefits package. The hardest part of the job is the long days and that no matter how we grow, the need in the community grows faster. The most enjoyable part of the day is the smiles and the gratitude on the faces of the families receiving much needed life staples.
Program Manager (Current Employee) – Miami, FL – June 5, 2012
This job is very rewarding for me because its all about helping those in need. The schedule is excellent M-F all holidays off. What I am not happy with is the health insurance is costly and our family has a $10,000.00 per year deductible and no advancement opportunities. Please don't contact this employer because the reason I am leaving the job is because I am relocating to Jacksonville.
excellent work schedule
bad health insurance benefits, and no place for advancement
