Dietary Aide/Cook (Former Employee) –  Duncannon, PADecember 4, 2018
At the start of my shift id be assigned to one of three positions. Each position has different tasks, one you fill up snacks on the snack list for morning, afternoon, and night of the next day and then assist the cook. Second, do objectives on the cleaning list and assist wherever else needed. Finally, the third position cleans the dining room tables and set up the tables with table clothes, silverware, bread plates (if needed), and cups then does dishes in the dish room. By the time all this is done we serve lunch, person one calls out the cards and special diets. Person two and three put trays in the cart for residents that eat in their room then person three calls the menu ans the cart over the loud speaker for the nurses to get the cart. Person one starts sweeping the kitchen while the other two pass out desserts. Person two comes back and mops and number three monitors the dining room for anyone that would need anything. Next we have ten minute break after that person one starts dishes while the other two busses the dining room and one and two do dishes while three sets up the dining room ans we do everything over again for dinner .

Very fast pace, and a lot of memorizing.
Dietary Aide (Current Employee) –  Duncannon, PAAugust 1, 2018
At Kinkora there’s a very fast pace vibe. Some people treated me differently because of an age gap, but i still do everything they do. The management is good , but needs work. They don’t listen much to concerns or issues.
Pros
the residents you work with day to day

Worst place to work

Workers get away with abuse, always short staffed, management only cares about residents when they are friends with family members and the facility is dirty and severely outdated.
Pros
Flexible scheduling
Cons
Almost no time for a break, short staffed
