Fun place to work. Made great friends and got attached to my residents!
Dining room server (Current Employee) – Westlake, Ohio – October 6, 2012
A typical day at Westlake Village is prepping the kitchen for the upcoming shift, making sure I am all stocked and everything is ready to go. Once it was time for the residents to come down I would greet them and I would memorize what they would like (salad, ice tea, etc) I would take their orders and assist them as much as needed. After we'd clean up and reset the tables and I would clean the kitchen and make sure it was restocked for the next shift. My boss was always great to me and very flexible with my schedule. I was the one who would usually train new servers and I was the go-to girl when anybody had questions. I made many great friends while working there! The hardest part of the job was when a resident would pass away, it was so sad and I would get very close to my residents. The most enjoyable part was definitely interacting with the residents. They were so interesting and had their own stories and many years of wisdom.
free meals, flexible, great co-workers/boss
short shifts, not enough pay
