    No moving up on position if you are older unless you just get hired in as supervisor, management, etc.

    Pros

    Pay is decent and PT0 accumulation also. You also get $8 to spend on lunch everyday that you work.

    Cons

    Bad management. To many high school children working in a grown up world taking care of patients diet and food that they have no experience at or care. Lazy coworkers. The cliques are bad also if you’re not in it you definitely don’t get treated well. The high schoolers are your supervisor’s, manager. They hide in restrooms, outside, and complain about taking food to the patients and the food will be cold. Mind you this is what they get paid to do. I could go on and on how terrible it is.

    Pros

    Pay is good for management staff, schedule is good for districts that don’t work excessively during the summer.

    Cons

    Ability to advance is limited, constant recreating of materials when we already have some. Pay structure for hourly associates is pitiful and makes hiring extremely difficult.
