Within my first two weeks I experienced hostility from my trainers, the chefs, and management... Apparently the facility has been through several managers and dining companies. As a result, the lack of team has been frustrating to say the least. Little accountability and lack of respect for managers and co workers has made a chaostic and a stressful work environment. The negative gossip from management on down is draining!!! I love the residents and that's the reason I plan keep the job! The residents are exceptional people and I feel it's a privilege to serve them! The benefit of helping them enjoy a nice meal with a smile is my number one Focus! Another positive of unidine is the free food of course!

A close friend told me about an opening and also put in a good word for me.

Busy at dinner, only slow during lunch shifts
13 hours is a common shift. Other shifts may be 8 or 5 hours.
Personal...the questions during a second interview are more conformed to the individual. What will and will not work for you and why you will be a good fit for this company.
