You know that people and food are a happy combination.

You’re a highly dependable person who would love to share your good spirits and our great food with residents and patients. You show up every day with a smile and ready to serve in the kitchen or dining room. Connecting with people comes naturally, and you love to brighten days with your upbeat personality. You have an eye for detail and a strong work ethic, and we’d love you on our team as a Dietary Aide at Ohio Living.


Why Ohio Living is different

  • A feel-good role. Meals are important to everyone and you’ll be the bearer of great food. That allows you to make connections with residents and patients, becoming a welcome and enjoyable part of their days. It’s rewarding for you, too.
  • A people person. This is really a customer service job because your goal is to make our residents and patients happy. You might come from retail, restaurant or manufacturing. You might be a student or a retiree. Whoever you are, you’re all about providing five-star service.
  • Variety is nice. We have a dining room that’s like a restaurant, yet we also bring meals to rooms. You can be a server, help with food prep or take on kitchen cleaning duties. That keeps every day interesting.
  • Just the start. We’ll provide on-the-job training to help you succeed. This is often a gateway into other jobs with us. In fact, our CEO’s first job in the industry was in a dishwashing role.
  • Attractive pay and benefits. We offer everything you expect, plus a retirement plan, paid time off, education assistance, pay advances up to $500, recognition programs and free meals.


What you’ll do

You’ll assist with a wide variety of culinary functions, depending on what is needed that day. You might be serving meals or snacks in the dining room, delivering food carts, plating and portioning food, cleaning kitchen areas or even washing dishes. You’ll go the extra mile to get the job done.


What it takes

  • Tenth grade education required; high school diploma or equivalent preferred
  • Food service experience a plus
  • Dependability and adherence to scheduled hours
  • We offer some flexibility to work with student schedules or other commitments
