Pros: great products, convenient drive service to customers, saves grocery time, etc.

I would recommend specific food products to the consumer. I have purchased numerous items and have enjoyed most of them. I have also involved my family for certain purchases.

Food Service Worker (Former Employee), Terre Haute, INMarch 31, 2015
This is a very friendly place. The environment is a bit childish but other than that its a good job. If you did a good job they tried to reward you but it was very hard to advance. I did my job 100 percet for 6 years and every time i applied to move up i got shut down.

Housekeeping (Former Employee), Ocean Springs MsMarch 31, 2015
Nothing to say. They wasn't a good company to work for. They didn't help the workers when they really need their help. Management wasn't good at all. I enjoyed my coworkers.

Workday @ Bethel University
Extern (Former Employee), Bethel UniversityMarch 31, 2015
Differed from day to day. There are many different stations to work. I have worked pizza station, Grill station, Wok station and the salad bar. Whatever station you are assigned to, you prepare the suggested amount of food items for that meal (ie Breakfast, lunch or dinner). Working Salad bar is just basically keeping all items fully stocked throughout each meal time (Breakfast, lunch or dinner). Maintain sanitation standards for the station you are at.

I learned how to cut 25 lbs. of grapes, cutting each grape in half.

wonderful place to work
Retail Manager (Current Employee), Bridgeport, CTMarch 30, 2015
If you are considering a salaried position within the company take your time and ensure that you are happy with your starting salary, they will low ball you. And it will take you years to make up the difference. Yearly raises are pretty small and unless you are a GM dont expect a yearly bonus.

No leadership or direction on managements behalf. Long stressful days, with no initiative to correct or make work environment more productive or manageable. Quality control and presentation was lacking.

GM ASSITANT SUPERVISOR (Former Employee), Reisterstown MdMarch 29, 2015
Pros: Wonderful to work for
Cons: Did not give enough notice before lay off occurred
Working for the company has been rewarding. The lay off on the east coast has hurt many families. Only thing I would suggest would be to find other positions for current employees before the lay off.

An excellent company to work for they provide all the tools necessary to succeed.
Executive Chef (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PAMarch 28, 2015
Pros: Advancement opportunities, excellent learning platforms, supportive managers, family atmosphere
Cons: Pay rate for front line employees needs to be more competitive to attract better talent.
Sodexo is one of the better contracted food service companies that I have worked for. I have been in food service for over twenty years and Sodexo is the only company that I have seen that really invests in its employees.

Barista/Cashier (Former Employee), Daytona Beach, FLMarch 27, 2015
Pros: Free lunches
Cons: Healthcare
A typical day at work was making drinks for customers and restocking materials and shelves. I learned better time management tactics and how to better multitask. I got along alright with my co-workers when they did what we needed done. The hardest part of the job was getting things done when they needed to be done as soon as possible but the most enjoyable part of the job was the customers, and communicating with them.

Sodexo was a good place to work for the time I was there, which was just over 6 years. I learned a lot and was promoted as well. However, I was offered a better opportunity so I wanted to take it.
