Its a grind
Retail Operations Manager (Current Employee), Kansas City, MOAugust 28, 2014
Long days, hard work and unless you are at the director level pay is not adequate. The fact you are able to work in a stadium environment make it very attractive, looking in from the outside but when the luster wears off, its mostly just sweat and tears. Turnover is high, and nobody seems to care at the upper level management positions as the additoinal – more... work just falls onto those at the middle management positions. luckily i worked with some really great people but at some point thats just not enough. – less

Cashier/ food prep/ caterer (Former Employee), Menlo Park, CAAugust 26, 2014
Pros: cusstomers, employers, management, benefits, flexibility, great pay
Cons: never enough time
Fast pace working environment that allowed you to have fun while working. Created a great bond with customers by getting to know them a little more in their daily life. I learned the regulations of being in a kitchen and even learned how to cook and do cold food preparation. Management was very flexible and understanding when it came to you. The hardest – more... part of the job is having to keep track of time and knowing you're on a sand clock. The most enjoyable part is after everything has been done and been put out you can enjoy the rest of your working shift talking to your customers. – less

Bad management and lack of training with employees.
Boat Rental Office Agent - Aramark (Former Employee), Page, AZAugust 25, 2014
Pros: customers and co-workers are from different countries.
Cons: train management to deal with conflicts with employee/customers, and how to communicate without belittling the employee
Even though Aramark is a big company but lack in management skills and many managers are not behaving professionally. Work 12hrs four days a week; stress on the feet and no place to take breaks or lunch in walking distance.

Difficult part is learning so much codes and pay is not high enough to have extra money to save. Rules are changed constantly – more... and managers do not communicate with other departments. HR department is not very helpful when conflict arise with management.

Its just like high school all over again. Management have favorites. Morning meetings are the same and employees are not given an opportunity to learn more or give a student a chance to learn what management is like and customers service are only handle with management behind office while employee walks back and forth to give customer services. It would be personally helpful when conflicts begin to give employees methods to fix the problem instead of waiting for managers to be available for comment. It makes the employee feel that they don't have the skills to correct the solution. – less

Lead Cook (Current Employee), Scranton, PAAugust 25, 2014
Management team is friendly and truly cares for its employees safety and well being. We are a diverse group of workers of all different backgrounds, which is nice. Work can be extremely busy at times but at the end of the day seems worthwhile because food quality is good and students are happy.

Okay for the most part
Patient Transporter (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXAugust 24, 2014
Pros: workers came together to make transporting very fun and easy going
Cons: short staffed all the time
In my view the way the boss and the supervisors treated most co-workers was unfair and some of the task we had to do was sometimes difficult. The boss was very uneasy and hard to come to when things went wrong due to the fact that everyone that was not on the good side of this lady was basically walking on egg shells and had to be very careful what – more... was said. – less

Good work place that make a difference
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee), New Orleans, LAAugust 22, 2014
Pros: using your own knowledge
Cons: the loss of schools for business
A good work place, great opportunities for advancement. In and outs of a contractor's business, got the chance to work with some of the most hardest working people in maintenance, A/C and plumbing. Only thing hard was when the neighborhood kids or people would break into the schools and steal and destory property. The reward of our hard was memberable, – more... seafood boils and good communication gatherings. – less

A really productive company
Garment Folder (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAAugust 21, 2014
This company is a really productive job. You learn a lot while making customers orders or folding their garments either is normal folding or special folding, also inspecting their garments. Their is nothing hard here all you have to do is fold 600 pieces every 2 hours , if you are making orders is scanning 800 every 2 hrs. it can be a little stressing – more... if your a new hired and you do not have the complete experience. – less

Check with management on the attendance for today's game. Setup desk and stanchions for crowd control. Greet guest as they enter the 755 Club. Answer any questions regarding menu, Club and anything about Turner Field. Any other duties as assigned by management. Hardest part of job - a rain delay. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting the guest – more... and when we win the game!! – less
