Gracious Rrrrrunning Around Like Crazy

Sous Chef (Former Employee)

ProsCompetitive pay, consistent schedule, paid Holidays. The job of Sous chef and Pm Cook for Holiday Retirement is a good step in the right direction for an up and coming culinarian. Plenty of time to learn mixed with the pressures of a deadline. The Employee is provided with recipes and consistent meals and is given enough freedoms to expand ones culinary experience ones heart desires.

ConsThe benefits provided do not start until six months employment. If the employee opts-in to the provided benefits package, one should expect at least a third of a paycheck to be removed. The job requirements are tedious and extensive, one should expect to be running around from the moment he/she walks in the door, to the moment the clock stops. With little to no recognition of ones hard work. After each service, which time line is closely monitored by management, the cook is to serve coffee to the residents... At which time one should expect at least 3 negative comments, and a slew of " well my mother never made it like that." comments.
Overall not a pleasant experience.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Co-Manager (Former Employee)

    I worked at Holiday Retirement full-time for more than a year


    Pros: There is actually a literal roof over a senior's head,… Cons: The worst company in America to work for. Complete lack of higher echelon respect for residents and employees alike. Inability… Advice to Senior Management: Listen to the ones who pay the bills. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
