    good place to work

    General Food Service Worker (Current Employee)
    Edinboro, PA

    Prosnice people to work for, when you leave work you are tired if you are older, we have nice benefits. they are willing to work with you if there is a problem or a family emergency,

    Consif you don't suck up to management, you don't get away with things, we don't get overtime usually training is one day and people who smoke, get more breaks than the ones that don't,

    Advice to Senior Managementthe only thing i have to say is that the older generation are hard workers, they have alot of knowledge respect them and have the younger ones learn from them if they want to respect their jobs, working is hard and nobody said it is easy,

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    OK, but short work year due to school schedule, and student enrollment

    Lead Cook (Former Employee)

    ProsCooking the meals for the students, and staff was very rewarding, change from the company before to this one was understandable for business. Tried to please the students, and staff with what they felt they wanted to eat.

    ConsAfter the change we lost a couple of key employees, but due to enrollment issues some of the educational staff was let go.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the faith it will work out.

    Certain business units are great. Others, not well-run. The disorganization becomes apparent at the corporate level

    ProsLarge company. Lots of opportunity

    ConsIf you are in Morrison, you are doing great. Other business units, not so much. Also, low pay because of being in food service industry.
