Wellness Coordinator (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 9, 2018
If they lose their contract at a facility, most of the employees will stop doing any work months before leaving. The regional director will not contact you nor answer any calls about relocation after the contract is lost. They also make you sign a noncompete clause which will not allow you to work for the client company even if they have no other work for you at Flik.
Benefits and Free Meals. Raises if you do your job above and beyond.
Pay, contract lost, no relocation if the contract is lost.
PM Cook (Former Employee) – Garrison, NY – June 13, 2018
I, in the first two years always looked forward to coming to work. My relationship with the client was excellent as well as with my Co Workers. there was never any tension. the kitchen staff always helped one another to make sure that the client was pleased. Overall one of the best kitchens I've ever had the opportunity to work in.We served the Homeless once a month and had monthly Birthdays for the Nuns at The Convent.
Waitress/Hostess (Former Employee) – Portland, ME – March 9, 2018
One day I was working a 12hr shift I remember how it was the best day of all the days I have worked. I was training someone and that person got to experience the joy and happiness that the kitchen and dining room brings. The next day she told management she had the best day and was glad to be working there.
Manager (Former Employee) – Pennsylvania – February 27, 2018
Learned a lot in my time with Flik. The company is growing quickly and cannot keep up with the amount of business they have and keep the accounts adequately staffed. Lunch is free, access to great resources and support. Unfortunately when you make suggestions to improve the work environment they fall on deaf ears. Expect to work 10 hours per day and have to fill in when line staff decides not to come in. Make sure you really check out the facility and the culture. Some can be difficult and cut throat.

Server/Cook/Dishwasher (Current Employee) – Virginia – February 4, 2018
Depending on the day and weekly menu items, sometimes this jobs is easy and other days its very stressful. There is a lot of teamwork and communication. Since its a small account we have become like family so sometimes work can be enjoyable.
Upper management doesn’t get it. Expect the world while giving next to nothing for it. This isn’t coming from a lazy employee. I work hard and with this company am expected to do the job of 4 persons (not an exaggeration) and still not good enough.
Do your work in 8 hours. Done? Heres more.Done with that? Heres more...WHY is it taking you so LONG to finish your work???
Dietitian (Former Employee) – United States – December 28, 2017
Another review I read said it well-as a part time dietitian you will be expecting to work 20 hours a week and expected to work 20 hrs a week, but given more and more to do within the same time period that quality suffers and auditors will come in and find subjective errors from working at a breakneck pace. If the client requests it. No training or direction, zero positive feedback from manager. A true bait and switch job offer. Beware.
Director of Dining Services (Current Employee) – DC – November 5, 2017
New Brand, Not much thought put into how senior living and business dining would tie together. The Corporate ex Chef and Creative development manager were allowed to run wild with no oversight and left middle management running in circles. Not to mention they were not trusted at any level. Only way, as a front line manager, to be recognized was to be in a big account. Smaller accounts are totally ignored. Bonus structure was changed mid year with no indication on how to meat goals. Very poor communication from President of Sector.

Food Service Manager II (Current Employee) – Rockville, MD – August 28, 2016
Great world wide company. 10- 14 hours per day is normal. Looking for a better work/personal life mix. Co workers are all professional and looking to move upwards. I love dealing with the residents we serve.
