Very fast paced, sometimes stressful, I have learned the real world is much different from what you learn in the classroom, that some things you learn are similar to what you were taught, but that for the most part learning is achieved through the process of doing.
Assistant Manager of Environmental Services (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 7, 2017
A typical day of work includes arriving early to check callouts and vacations, fill those positions with part-timers, check email for any posted projects or areas of concern. Check the bed board to seee how many are there to clean on our shift which dictates how busy our night is going to be. Meet staff in the sign in area, make sure everyone is present, then tour out areas of responsibility and check on staff. There are 5 managers on 2nd shift and we work pretty good together. I am in charge of projects so I'm checking floor work, carpets etc. throughout the hospital.
Housekeeping Department (part-time) (Current Employee) – Wynnewood, PA Lankenau Hospital – September 6, 2017
I enjoy providing the quality of cleaning and keeping it healthy and safe environment for the patients and also the workers. And also gaining a relationship with the patients as you clean their rooms daily
Line up your ducks being sure someone has your back or you will be quietly dismantled and let go
Housekeeping Director/GM, etc (Former Employee) – Pennsylvania & eastern united states – September 6, 2017
most enjoyable part of the job included developing best practices, in the absence of any available employee training within the housekeeping part of the company which they use to this day, and developed a management development program which was most successful. Worked with a tremendous management team at a particular location(s) which would do whatever necessary to perform at an excellent level and delivered a product of which the customer was most proud! Amen and amen.
Friendships and hard work appreciated
Don't value creative managers if not supported by local click, so watch out.
Food Service Worker (Current Employee) – Tewksbury, MA – September 6, 2017
It is a rather easy place of work. When you we go in, our job for the day is written out. The co-works are easy to converse with, although depending on whom difficult to understand. As soon as the line begins, everything moves quickly. The manager is on the move doing what he has to do. People on the line assembling and placing things in to position, while the truck runners makes sure nothing stops them and bring the trucks to the units.
Server (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – September 6, 2017
Overall enjoyed working with ASU students , the food served was great , the place would get hectic at times . Most of the kitchen staff was nice . Uniforms are always needed and the food served is outstandingly good .
Aramark in Salisbury, Md is horrible! The food service director is very unorganized and not a very good leader. The employees are lazy and they all cut corners in order to do their jobs. Someone really needs to evaluate that particular location of Aramark and do so changing around ASAP!
Driver & Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Santa Ana, CA – September 5, 2017
Aramark is a popular and successful company that caught my attention with full benefits and good pay. After working there for some time I am not sure if it is all worth it. We start work from 3 am to 5 am depending on what the manager decides to text you that morning or the night before. We may work 12 hours or more each day, in delivery trucks with no AC. Management overwhelms some with strenuous delivery routes while others have easier days. The over work of employees, hours and treatment of management has caused an ample amount of stress on myself and my personal life.
While at Aramark, I worked for the Woodhaven Foods division. After my second year, I was top sales rep every year in was there. It was my first job out of college, and I enjoyed it. I left to become a foodservice broker right before our division was sold to Sysco.
