Our Geisinger Family
Three years ago I started as an Administrative Secretary for the Foodservice department at Geisinger and I recently was promoted into a Supervisor position. Geisinger has opened many doors for me in such a short period of time. They have helped pave a whole new career path for me and I wouldn’t be where I am today without the support and guidance from the team here at GCMC. I’ve never worked for a company that cares as much as Geisinger does for their employees and their career development.Supervisor Foodservice Geisinger Community Medical Center, Scranton
I've been with Geisinger for almost two years as a Foodservice worker. Since I've been working here, I never felt prouder to be welcomed into a work environment, that makes you part of a family. I am very grateful to be part of a team that has become my family.Cook Geisinger Medical Center, Danville
The Foodservice department gave me a warm welcome when I first started and has given me a family like environment since. Not only does my job give me the opportunity to help others every day, but it allows me to create bonds with customers, patients, and other employees.Foodservice Worker Geisinger Medical Center, Danville
