Supervisor (Former Employee), Greenville, NC – November 29, 2015
Pros: location and customers
Cons: rate of pay
I started at this job in 2003 as a line worker. After 3ys I was promoted to supervisor. I work in the concessions department and many different location. Its was on a college campus so it was fun to build relationships with the students that came in everyday.
Account Executive (Current Employee), Tampa Bay, FL – November 28, 2015
Pros: promote well, benefits, work life balance
Cons: pay, management
They call you a one night stand sales guy. You rely on others to get paid & you do their job. It takes over 2-3 months to get paid on something you sell. Turn over is more than 50%. I have never been micro-managed to this extent-they track everything to how many phone calls you logged in salesforce. Everyone just makes up the info in their data base so 60% of what you're calling on is total BS. You spend 7:30-12 M, W, & F in the office making phone calls. I wouldn't recommend this job to en enemy.
Working in the location I work in is hard because there's a lot to be done with a small amount of people.
food server (Current Employee), Winston-Salem, NC – November 28, 2015
Pros: free lunch and nice work environment
Cons: favoritism with management
In my opinion, the part of Aramark that I work for isn't good for the most part, because they've been cutting the amount of employees per shift while still expecting the same amount of work to be done.
Cashier, banquets and set-up (Former Employee), Biloxi, MS – November 27, 2015
Pros: Free lunches
Cons: Long hours and infrequent breaks
A typical day would begin in setting up the concession stand by making sure all food and drink items were available for purchase, and to also make sure the cash drawer was correct. I learned to be able to think quickly and to multi-task. Management was ok. My co-workers were friendly and didn't mind helping when asked. The hardest parts of the job were the long hours standing and the very fast pace of getting food orders quickly and accurately. I enjoyed serving the customers and my co-workers.
Human Resources Manager (Current Employee), Detroit, MI – November 26, 2015
Aramark is a company going through a lot of change. If you do not like change, this is not the place for you. There is a lot of opportunity for entry level managers- you can learn a lot about the food service industry if that is your area of interest.
They are a nice company to work for because they pay good money but they dont properly train you for what your getting yourself into.
Supervisor (Former Employee), Jackson, Michigan – November 24, 2015
Pros: ate free, good pay
Cons: had to stay locked behind bars to long, could never go out for lunch
I had to unlock all freezers and make sure the prisoners had the supplies they needed to get their jobs done. I also had to supervise them and run the food line. I had to make sure they did what was asked of them and I had to make sure they were in the places the needed to be on a daily basis because we always have to be aware of where they are at all times.
