"I love the decision making, the independence and the creativity. I do not like working alone very often, the long hours in my car to go to far away clients, the heavy and constant loading and unloading of my equipment and, mainly, the very irregular revenues."

Chef at Unidine
in New York City, NY

Please give us a one liner to describe this review.

"My boss was a kitchen bully so it was not a good environment."

What do you like about working at Unidine?

"Cooking for seniors was the best part of work. They were very appreciative."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Yes please negotiate what you are worth or ask for a market value of your title, because the amount of wages you receive and all that work and high health insurance may not be worth it in the long run."

What don't you like about working at Unidine?

"Health Insurance is WAY TO HIGH for two people: $751.00 a month, out of control. My boss made it very clear they were in charge - an absolute control freak. Can anyone say that they are so into their title: Boss"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Get a better HEALTH insurance plan for your staff and pay your workers what there worth. The pay is to LOW especially for New York. It may work in Michigan but not NYC."
