Consider for a temporary role
DR Server/Waiter/Busser/Cleaner (Former Employee) – Brewster, MA – November 19, 2017
I took this job as a PT job, Dining Room Server. I ended up working more hours as there was a shortage of staff.
The DR/Kitchen staff were reasonably nice, and cared about the residents. I actually felt that all the staff I encountered did care about the residents.
The facility itself is brand new (2014) and beautiful. It was great working in such a nice environment. Meal service is fine dining, table cloths, china, etc. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner meal service averaged 3.5 - 4 hour shift per meal service.
You work/are busy non-stop from the time you start your shift and when it ends. There was no interacting with co-workers and while you do interact with the residents, it's limited, as meal service was a mad rush and you needed to always quickly move on to the next table. I always felt they were understaffed, but that was their staffing norm level.
Really a ton of work for such a low paying job, just barely above minimum wage. High turnover here and their other Cape locations, not only for DR staff, but CNAs, etc. There are always job openings.
Even with the cons, great experience, and loved working for the residents.
Residents, Facility, Laid Back Atmosphere
Just above MINIMUM Wage, No Benefits, No Opportunities
