Great job for mother's of school age children!

Child Nutrition Manager (Current Employee)
Grand Prairie, TX

ProsThe hours are excellent. I work Monday thru Friday,5:45am until 2:15pm. I have my evenings and weekends off to spend with my family. Also, we get paid holidays, and Summers off. I'm off a week at Thanksgiving, 2 weeks at Christmas and one week off in the Spring. This is the perfect job for mother's of school age children. You will have the same days off as them. You can work anywhere from 4-8 hours a day and still get all the benefits of a full time employee. The only negative thing I can thinl of is that you don't get paid in the Summer while you are off work. I always set aside $500 a month during the school year to cover my bills during the Summer. It works for me.

ConsNo pay during the Summer months off.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop being so nosey when we ask for a personal day off. It's PERSONAL!!! None of your business!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Although they attempt to be "one of the big boys", they are still a little kid running to catch up.
