Company Culture

It’s a good work environment, but it could be a tad bit better if everyone worked together.

Teamwork

We work together when we can but we rarely have time to interact with each other,

Freedom to work independently

Mostly everyone works independently.

Internal Communication

Supervisors really don’t tell us what we need to know until the last minute.

Gender Equality

We’re all treated equally

Attitude towards older colleagues

We’re all treated equally.

Career Development

I would love an opportunity to branch out & do different things but it seems like that’s impossible.

Overall compensation for your work

Nothings really ever fair.

Office / Work Environment

The work environment needs improvement as far as temperatures, equipment & technology. Everything is pretty much outdated.

Work-Life Balance

We often get called in to work our off days because there isn’t enough employees.

Company Image

It’s a great job because I actually feel like I make a difference.

Job Security

It’s some where stable but I’m often scared I might lose my job one day because of something that’s out of my control.

Workplace Safety

The equipment we have now isn’t safe at all. I’ve gotten hurt several times because of the equipment.

Challenging Work

It’s very challenging most days because I often need help & there’s never enough employees to help me out.

Inclusive / Diverse

There isn’t much diversity, I wish there was.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Comfortable and breathable uniform.Supervisors that actually care about the employees.

What I like about the company

There’s so many positive aspects of working in the food service department mainly because you’re feeding sick patients. Making elderly people smile when they receive they’re food is very rewarding to me. It’s definitely a great first job. You get meet so many people from different states & hear many languages. It’s a good place to start because you learn so much in such a short time. This job gives you a lot of experience. You work with patients, doctors, nurses and visitors. You become a team player without even knowing because you have to help so many people with directions as in where to find different places to get food, finding a patient room and where to find the parking decks. Uab Hospital is a very big place with so many jobs to offer. There’s pretty always a department hiring inside of the hospital and you usually just have to any supervisor if there’s an opening. All and all it’s a great place.

What I dislike about the company

Supervisors should really get the staff under control & help us when we need help. New equipment should be available. Temperatures should be comfortable in the summer and winter.
