Cashier/Server/Cook (Former Employee), Seneca Falls, NY – July 29, 2015
Pros: free lunch meal
Cons: short breaks unpaid
A typical day for chartwells is slighlty stressful not much help available very limited workers that are actually willing to go the extra step to help others. Promised alot of things that never get recieved hence my reason for leaving the most enjoyable part of my job was helping with extra events such as sport/ school events hosted on the weekends. The hardest part of the job would have to be not having much help on the buisy days very few people to work with you to assure that food is being served at a timely matter .

Food Service Associate (Current Employee), Charlotte, NC – July 15, 2015
Pros: Enjoyable work environment
Cons: Benefits, wages
Management and Corporate should communicate better with general staff and understand realistic demands for sales. Better benefits could be provided. Since wages are determined by number of sales, corporate should allow for more diversity in breakfast/ lunch menus for students.
Cashier (Former Employee), Pensacola, FL – June 21, 2015
As a full time college student, working on campus made it easier to get school work done and be able to work as a team. Also if you lived on campus, you would not have to travel very far to get to work.
Student Manager (Former Employee), Winona, MN – June 20, 2015
clock in and get told everything that needs to be done that night. I learned how to be patient with others. management was good but a little strict. becoming a manager makes your responsible for things that happen even when they are someone else mistake. making new friends was the best part of the job.
Service Representative (Former Employee), Lakeland, FL – June 13, 2015
Pros: Free lunches
Cons: Short breaks
A typical day at work was just cleaning, setting up, and tearing down food stations. I learned how to set up food stations in a proficient manner. The management was not very helpful and most of the time were not there. My co-workers were helpful most of the time and taught me more than the management did. The hardest part of the job was not knowing what my tasks were for the day because they would constantly change. The best part of the job was meeting my co-workers and developing new friendships with them.

Very nice place to work and I could eat as much as i wanted.

It was busy. I learned to be polite and always smile. My manager was really great and so were my co-workers. We all worked very well together. The hardest part of the job was washing the dishes. My most enjoyable part of the job was that I felt that I was part of a team.
Concessions (Former Employee), San Marcos, TX – May 5, 2015
Pros: Free food, Great managers and co-workers
Cons: Dealing with some very rude customers at times
Chartwells is a really fun place to work. Of all places I have been employed, they are by far the best I have worked for. You don't run into any rude or cruel people in the workplace. You are allowed to take a 30 minute break during your shift (unlike other food service companies). The scheduling is extremely flexible!
One of the best benefits is that you get to eat the food for no extra charge.
Food Services Worker (Former Employee), Cedar City, UT – May 4, 2015
An average day at Outtakes is full of ups and downs. Some days were slow as molasses and other days, a mad rush. If you weren't the supervisors favorite you would be lectured for every little thing you didn't do perfectly. The coworkers were friendly for the most part, but it ever really went past work friendship. The best part about the job was honestly the customers, they were the only ones who seemed to care and understood that you were only human.
