Dietetic Technicians

Work Environment

Dietary departments in health care facilities are generally well lighted, clean, well ventilated, and near the kitchen areas. Kitchens and serving areas, however, may be intensely active at peak hours and are often very hot, steamy, and noisy. Most dietetic technicians in food-service administration jobs work 40-hour weeks, and may be required to work some nights, weekends, or on an irregular schedule, depending on the type of employer. Shifts are usually divided into three eight-hour periods, with each shift responsible for preparing one major meal.
