    I worked as a dietary aide and cook part-time for about a year. Fantastic place!!!If the pay was better I would have definitely stuck around more. Mostly female employees which has its pros and cons.But I love the staff and all of the residents :)Definitely miss it. Management was amazing. Absolutely loved HR. And everybody in the office was just a hoot and very helpful when I started.I would recommend working here.Only three negative things... too many meetings, the "clocking in" machine was possessed, and you definitely won't get rich.But the positives WAYYY out balance the bad. You will have a lot of fun memories and you also learn a lot about yourself in a short period of time.Consider them as an option if you're looking for employment or considering putting your loved one there for nursing care.
