Best place that I ever worked.
Customer Service (Former Employee), Salem, VAApril 18, 2015
I went into work everyday to work. My job started as a customer service rep in healthcare when it was Crest Uniform and I advanced quickly in the company to a Regional Coordinator. I worked well with most customer service staff as well as the warehouse in which I was able to follow orders completely for my phone customers and take care of any problems that would arise. The part that I guess would be in every office setting there was always someone ready to gossip about another co-worker. That was not as issue for me because I go to work to get work done and if I am caught up on my duties I do not mind helping in other areas. In the time that I did work for Crest. Wearguard, Aramark, I did advance and was awarded the Best People Award twice.. Also I am nit sure what system they are currently working in but I am familiar with Phast if that is still in place..

Horrible experience
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT (Former Employee), Broussard, LAApril 18, 2015
Pros: NONE
Cons: EVERYTHING
Calling on customers who viewed our service as the last thing they wanted to deal with at any given time. The management style was too laid back, it needed more structure. Hardest part of the job was getting an appointment. Companies didn't want to fix something that wasn't broken. Also, the turn over rate was 100%.

depends on which division you are in... as it appears the other parts of the company function correctly.
Account Executive (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVApril 17, 2015
Micro managed to a point where there isn't enough time left in the day to actually sell with your multiple weekly mandatory meetings. Minimums are almost impossible to even meet in an average work week, you are in a glorified telemarketer position with a poor base and you have to fight to get your commissions on things you sell. If the things you sell will even stick because the service department is so poorly managed. Worst Uniform Company in the industry!

Non productive place
Barista and Cashier (Current Employee), Columbus, OHApril 16, 2015
The management team was the worse, lack of communication. You tell them one thing they would do another. Putting request in they never do as they say. It was just a horrible experience.

LifeWorks Group- Director (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAApril 16, 2015
Pros: people, fun environment

Aramark is a great place to grow and further develop your career
Director, Employment Relations (Former Employee), Philadelphia PAApril 15, 2015
Aramark is a great company to work for depending on your manager. I had a great manager, hence I really was able to grow in my career and learned a great deal during my tenure there.
It is a very entrepreneurial company where you either thrive or fail.
I enjoyed the challenge as well as my coworkers. I was there for 16 years because I continue to learn from my peers, leaders and the business itself.

Very unprofessional, dirty work spaces, bad management.
Cook/ Baker (Former Employee), Gainesville, FL, University of FloridaApril 14, 2015
Pros: Picking up supplies from other stores on campus, lunch breaks.
Cons: Management, co-workers, management not following basic procedures.
I would come in a 7:40, clock-in at 7:45.

I'd set up the back BOH, and heating table.
Make food for customers both custom and menu items.
Baked cookies, stocked veggies.

I didn't much, just kitchen procedures a little different then I'm used to.

I don't have much to say about the management.

The hardest part was cooking catering orders by yourself in the morning.

The most enjoyable part of the job was; picking up supplies from other stores on campus.
