Custodial Worker (Former Employee) – Moscow Mills, MO – August 2, 2016
They told me they'd get me a uniform. Never happened. They said I'd get a locker. Never happened. They said I'd start at 10.60 in interview but then said they needed to go down to 10. They wouldn't give me code to access the building they suggested I try to piggyback on someone else walking in. Management was allowed to talk to me like a dog. Barely had enough supplies to do my job. I asked for more cleaning supplies and got nothing.
Assistant Food Service Director (Former Employee) – University of Minnesota – August 1, 2016
Aramark management turnover was extremely high. This company has great benefits. Work and life balance was great. However, the environment/ working relationship between union staff and management was very negative.
Great benefits, work and life balance was perfect
Negative environment between union associates and management staff.
General Manager (Current Employee) – Greeley, CO – August 1, 2016
I loved being a General Manager. My typical day was getting ready for the day, reading emails, paperwork, and helping out on the line as needed. I have learned what an General Manager is supposed to do as far as taking care of the employees, leading by example and earning the respect of the employee's. The hardest part of the job for me is the administrative part of the job. Like reading every email in a timely manner, sending paper work in a timely manner. I love all parts of the job, especially the customers.
They help you every step of the way.
They could provide more training for a General Manager postion

Excellent development programs
Large districts involving excessive travel resulting in an imbalance of work-life balance
It was a fast pace job. You need to be able to adjust to multiple changes. I learned how to manage my worker and keep their morale high. The management was great they gave me to best opportunity to advance to management . I made life long friendships through co-workers. The hardest part of the job was handling last minute changes. the most enjoyable part was meeting new people.
Excellent Company with Superior Customer Service Standards
Director of Operations (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 27, 2016
Having worked with companies with a focus on customer service and high standards, Aramark is a excellent company. They strive to produce and meet their customers needs at the highest level.
They provide for their employees career support, training, opportunity for advancement, and excellent benefits. The people I have interacted with in all areas of Business Services with Aramark have been top notch and well trained, and positioned well for their roles in the company. There is a challenge everyday to do better than the previous day, and this becomes the operating standard.
I have personally enjoyed my career with Aramark Services.
Competitive Salaries, Great Workforce Standards, Excellent Customer Service Guidelines
Assistant Food Service Director (Former Employee) – Hutchinson, KS – July 27, 2016
You never know when you will go to work or get off. Management is sketchy at best. Constant turnover rate, you hardly have a chance to train supervisors before they just stop showing up for work. The inmates run the staff instead of the staff running the inmates.
Chef Manager (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – July 27, 2016
working for Aramark has been a great company to work for in the past year as a culinarian. Aramark has a great diversity of background and knowledge of people around the world .Even myself as a Haitian chef with a vast background I am astonish even till today to see the collective effort Aramark brings to any establishment I ever worked in.
Cook/Prep (Current Employee) – Canyon, TX – July 26, 2016
I enjoy working with kids and putting a smile in their faces. I enjoy the hours just wish the company would pay their employees more. Not paying employees well results in a high rotation of new employees.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Saint Joseph, MO – July 25, 2016
good people to work with, just inconsistent with their policies and don't always follow up on their word. The coworkers can be very enjoyable to work with and often times a very laid back work place, but can also be difficult to get things from lack of work output from workers.
Diagnostic Imaging Engineer II (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – July 25, 2016
Aramark tends to take care of the customer, at all costs. The employee is often thrown under the bus. Management is all about money and cares not for the employee. If you like a fully metrics employer, then Aramark is for you. Aramark HR is sometimes impossible to get ahold of, takes forever to get checks and Kronos setup, and is generally disliked by people in the company. Pay raises were miniscule, when they gave them and often they gave no cost of living increase. Training was minimal, or shorted. Hours were too long. Worse problem was their management had TOO many bosses. We never had enough workers to do the job and management took up to 18 months to put another worker in the field, but they could field a manager in no time .... you get the idea. Supervisor played politics and was not around often. To summarize, you can work here, but I cannot recommend them for work.
You get paid .... even if it takes a long time.
metrics, not enough workers, too many bosses, management changes EVERY year
