Very diverse and fun workplace
Resource Food Service Manager (Former Employee), MidwestMay 27, 2015
While working at Sodexo I was able to travel to different locations and experience how what each team's strengths and weakness were. This was an incredible learning experience as a recent grad.

Progressive
Chef (Current Employee), NHMay 26, 2015
The company has many progressive ideas and if they continue will be on the cutting edge of food services. There is support available for people that have issues and it's important to point out company practices are not the same as unit practices so the company as a whole is great to work for

I have worked for Sodexo for more than 20 years. I was originally hired under the banner of Marriott Management Services. I have worked in the Heathcare, Corporate and Campus Services Divisions and will continue to work for the company if I can find a position in a city that is enjoyable for both myself and my elderly mother

Overall an Excellent Company to work for
Supervisor and cook (Former Employee), Moscow, IDMay 20, 2015
Pros: Company works hard with employees through difficult times
Cons: They shut down operations during winter break, spring break and summer which really sucks pay wise!
An excellent company to work for! They work with employees needs, desires and health in their entirety. The only bad thing about this company is for the branches that exist on college campuses they often lay employees off during winter/spring breaks and during the summer which really sucks! Now if one gets a job at a health care facility that they run or take a salary job then that person is fine. But otherwise it really sucks getitng laid off and it doesn't matter if you get paid more than others...if you don't work for a week to 10 days and average your pay then those months you will be making less than minimum wage...it really sucks!

Fast pace enviroment
Food service worker (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PaMay 19, 2015
A typical day working at the campus under Sodexo consisted of various job duties and a fast paced environment. Sometimes an employee are assigned other duties from different job titles depending on staff. The hardest part of the job is lack of staff or product. The most enjoyable part of the job are the students on campus.

comfortable and caring work place
Nutrional sevices (Former Employee), Houston, TXMay 19, 2015
Pros: free lunch, health benefits, flexible schedules, understanding employers
Cons: phyiscally drainging
Working with Sodexo has taught me to go above and beyond for the customer/ patients. Sodexo is a family company where ethics, caring and work quality are put first in the work place. The most rewarding part of working for Sodexo is being able to put a smile on a patient's face during their struggles in the hospital. Working for Sodexo helps develop a sense of pride for the work you do because to Sodexo every job matters, even those that seem small and insignificant have a big impact.

Pib Buisness
Purchasing Assistant (Current Employee), kennesaw, gaMay 18, 2015
Pros: Great Benifits
Cons: biased managment
I worked my butt off a lot and felt like I stayed at the same level but with different titles. I want to grow and advance what it is that I have learned so far. I get told I have a lot to offer but do not feel like they really mean it but only say it because its better than nothing at times. I have loved the company just not how the advancement works. I think there is favoritism in it. I also believe that our HR that is on site does not see things fairly and is biased. I also think that they look down on me because I am young and I do not like that at all. I am capable of doing many things no matter my age.

Friendly workers and workplace very productive.
Server, Cook, Extra, and Cleaner (Current Employee), Macomb, ILMay 18, 2015
Pros: Free food on the weekend
I have learned many things while working with sodexo. I have learned how to manage a dishroom and keep it clean at the same time. I have learned how to manage customers with a smile because things happen and customers are not always satisfied. I have also learned a few things about food prep and preparing fast food.

My co-workers are amazing, They are friendly and helpful. They provide me with advice on how to better myself in the workplace and outside the workplace as far as school.

The most enjoyable part of my job is coming to work everyday and filling like a part of a family. Also being able to make conversation and still get work done. Seeing satisfied customers is always enjoyable.
