This company is big and has excellent programs that have been developed and implemented at corporate level. There is a gap between corporate and regional areas.
This company is supposed to be an expert in support services, but in my experience within the two sectors in which I worked, there is a lack of training and sharing their process with managers. The only training I received was wage and hourly online training as well as how to apply for FMLA with staff members.
I am disappointed in the consulting life, as there is quite a bit of opportunity, but hard to be successful without the right tools to have a successful account.

I worked here for years and was made to do other people's work to make the managers look good and they will throw you under the bus the first chance they get. They will make you work sick, with broken bones, and they don't care how much damage they cause

Friendly people with lots of opportunities for growth in different sectors of food services nationwide. There are trainings for development offered constantly. The people who I work with are organized and helpful. Even if an account closes, the company tries to transfer and find other openings for you versus leaving you behind. Pay is competitive with other companies. They even give you wellness pay during the holidays.
Catering Lead / Café Attendant (Former Employee) – Montvale, NJ – January 14, 2016
I started my day by viewing and organizing the different food orders and delivery times; after completing this step, I proceeded to collect all the different food orders and stacking food dispensers in such an order where I could deliver food at different locations quickly. I would engage with the kitchen staff to discuss the upcoming menu orders and deliveries. I would set up dining room and tables in a way where it would display an elegant format for the customers.
Work you like crazy, and will not help when needed. YES, they assign you a "mentor" but they are usually no help there. They are often too busy or just worried about themselves. There is no work life balance. They do offer to help you with school but there is no time to go!
The management there is no help either...nor is HR. I could not get out of there fast enough.
No work life balance, long hours, too much work on certain people while not enough on others.
Chef/Nutritionist (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – December 3, 2015
Loved working for the residents, who were discerning in their tastes, yet open to new culinary experiences. I learned a lot from the wisdom of their many years of interpersonal relationships and business savoy
EXECUTIVE BRIEFING COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Redmond, WA – December 2, 2015
Professional environment with emphasis on accuracy and efficiency. Opportunities to interact with coworkers, clients, and customers on multiple levels. Constantly changing requirements and expectations which provided ample room for growth. Supportive management team.
Food Service Worker/Cashier (Former Employee) – Bloomington, IL – November 16, 2015
Worked for this company for 7 months before I was told to resign or I would be let go. I was not even given a formal job description let alone the training that I really needed. There is way too much micromanagement and, as several reviewers have indicated, reactive vs. proactive tendencies of management. They are some of the most arrogant, condescending, hostile, and unprofessional people I have ever worked with and for. They can look for you to do wrong and then set you up to fail so they can have an excuse to document you or let you go if they decide they don't like you. Even if it is something legitimate, it may not have been intentional on your part and they may still make up lies or grains of truth about other things you have or have not done in order to sound legitimate in disciplinary action toward you. Like a lot of service jobs, it is female dominated and some of the women do not like men. You will often know in the first month or so whether or not it is the job for you. My advice would be to approach them with caution, or avoid them at all costs!
Weekdays only predominantly, some benefits after 90 days
Very low pay, only one 10 minute break if you are part-time, micromanagement, hostility from management and colleagues if they don't like you for whatever reason
