    Pros

    All the hours you can handle, and then 20 more! Friendly co-workers that you can stage a revolt with! Working harder than you've ever worked in your entire life! If you have an unhappy home life..HOORAY!! You won't be seeing them much anymore! And my favorite, having so much work that you'll never get it done and they hand you 3 hours more of work!

    Cons

    Managers that blame their incompetence on the employees, managers that haven't any power to truly manage(only to scream and embarrass employees like children) because upper management is power hungry, Food that is so substandard to work with that your given meat that is more like dog food and expected to make a delicious stew, expected to thoroughly clean the entire kitchen before going home at night after working a lunch and dinner shift by yourself and stock, Coming in the morning to find the chef from the night before didn't clean and your stuck cleaning before you cook-the managers do nothing because they're a favorite

    Advice to Management

    Don't work here. If you do..be fair. Work harder .

    Pros

    Very flexible work. Great experience with the company and lots of hands on accomplishments. Traveling to help with high end upscale events really gets you exposure.

    Cons

    Long work days and demanding clientele. Trying to accommodate both clients and company can be a challenging situation. Being able to decide on what is the professional choice can be skewed by clients wishes and needs.

    Advice to Management

    Be yourself

    Pros

    I have nothing good to say about this company at all. Apply elsewhere. Only pro to working here is it is steady dayshift and weekends off. Other than that nothing.

    Cons

    Everything. No training. Tons of paperwork. They will fire you over the telephone. Management is terrible. A lot of talking behind employees back. Unsafe vehicles. Expect you to know how to do your job in 1 week of you don't they will let you go.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to treat employees and train them properly.

    Pros

    None. They lie and tell you you will have a work life balance, and good benefits but when you use your benefits it's an issue. They tell you they pay you for 17 holidays, however when you use them your director has an issue with it.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations and zero support from the management team. If you're a director or an executive chef you'll have the luxury of sitting back in your office all day without doing any work. They always say they have meeting or conference calls, but I find it hard to believe I have seen the Executive Chef myself playing solitaire on his computer while his kitchen crashed. He did not help his team. The Food and Nutrition Director sits in her office gossiping with other managers that are her friends. While you are stuck doing it all. I urge everyone to steer away from this company.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at your leaders. The middle level managers really do all the work, but never get recognition. The director will always load up all the work on the patient services manager and never assist. If you were to take a trip to your accounts you can see what really goes on. Just take a look at the turn over rate for patient services managers in the central Florida area. There is a reason why.
