Not professional and a waste of my time
Dietary Aid/Wait Staff (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 22, 2013
My typical shifts were simple. I served the residents, collected their dishes, washed them, as well as the pots and pans the cook used. I put everything back in the appropriate spots and then repeated the same task for our second seating. I learned about residential living. I learned different policies as to how the home is run. My co-workers were helpful for the most part. As for a coworker who had worked there almost ten years, was helpful with experience, but lacked in attitude. The hardest part of my job was the lack of leadership. My manager left the cook/supervisor in charge, and the almost ten year working co-worker decides to take over instead. On a daily shift, no one was specific about daily goals, no one was delegated to a certain duty, and it was a rushed environment. I've never worked in such an un organized, as far as rolls and what is to be done on a daily shift, corporation. I enjoyed the free meals. They really came in handy since I was only paid minimum wage.
Minimum wage, management lies.
