Cook Supervisor Reviews

What is it like working as a Cook Supervisor?

Cook Supervisor in Talladega:
"Rewarding and demanding."
Pros: I take pleasure in trying to provide a nutritious and palatable meal for those who have little to look forward too in their daily routines.
Cons: The daily/sometimes per meal disgruntled residents....not because food is bad but they are feeling helpless and alone and naturally want to voice their discontent.
