Production Cook (Current Employee), Utica, NY – December 3, 2013
Typical day includes preparing foods for different stations and keeping up with cleaning along with proper food storage. I learned while working for Sodexo to operate a cash register more efficiently than I could prior to employment, I learned how to cut produce and meats more efficiently, I learned the pizza hut protocol, and I learned how to better – more... manage my time due to having a full time position for the majority of the time that I have worked for Sodexo. Management did their best to handle every situation that arose during my time there. My coworkers were for the most part supportive, and helpful. When I asked for help, I received advice or guidance when necessary. The hardest part of the job is the stress of dealing with large groups of people in a short amount of time during meals and occasionally between classes. The most enjoyable part of my position is the benefits and the enjoyment I had when a customer was happy and genuinely appreciated the service they received. – less
Supervisor (Former Employee), Flint, MI – December 2, 2013
Pros: free lunch, some fun people
Cons: poor pay, little respect from upper management, corporate needs to get to know how their units actually work
A typical day at work consisted of trying to do more jobs in more areas than one person could possibly handle, followed by the General Manager coming in the next morning wondering why more wasn't done. I learned that they won't promote you if you are already doing the job for less money. They have you closing, running the shift without management, and – more... having three or more different areas to cover for all breaks and lunches and yet, they will not actually promote you. I had a name tag that read supervisor but my pay was still from my cashier days. I suppose that doing the beverage orders, running a shift, and doing paperwork for my boss wasn't enough to make more than the people that I was supposed to be supervising. My co-workers for the most part were great. They were there to do a job and make sure that it was done. Some of them were a little moody, but that happens anywhere. The hardest part of the job was knowing that I would be there with 20 other people working and no other manager present for hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that the student customers were always so happy to see me at work. Knowing that the customer knows that you're working hard for him/her is always rewarding. I still get messages from them stating that they miss me. – less
General Manager (Current Employee), Lafayette, IN – November 24, 2013
I thoroughly enjoy what I do on a daily basis in addition to the experiences I've been able to gain. Support services has become a passion based on the areas I've led including Food and Nutrition, Environmental Services, Patient Transport, Call Centers, and Security
Cons: semi annual//short of staff and hours were cut when contracts were lost
my schedule was from 7am to 5PM
I enjoyed being an environmental associate and was later promoted to a Management Position. I was required to complete daily payroll and collect monthly inventory while overseeing 24 employees at several different locations
As a contracted worker, working for clients, it can be difficult to be accepted by employees who do not work for Sodexo, but a manger for Sodexo is expected to manage them. Double paperwork for Sodexo and the client. Overall okay employer.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Denver, CO – November 18, 2013
Pros: my day started early
Cons: working week-ends
I enjoy getting to work very early and preparing for the day. Managing my own time and learning from my mistakes and how I could be better prepared. I really tried to make everything perfect and learned no matter how much you prepare there is always something you can do better.
