Kitchen Staff (Former Employee), Walla Walla, WAJuly 10, 2015
Pros: free meals
Cons: very stressful due to few staff on shift
Sodexo was a stressful but fun place to work. A typical day would include some down time but mostly a continual rush of orders coming in at once. Management was wonderful. They gave me paid days off when I got hurt on the job and made sure everyone was taken care of. The most enjoyable part was socializing with the customers and getting to know them better.

Catering Lead (Former Employee), Commerce, TXJuly 10, 2015
Pros: The management team and staff are like a second family.
Cons: None
There is no typical day at Sodexo. Everyday is different from parties to banquets. Serving from over 1,000 guest weekly and taking on a variety of challenges. But I know my guest are satisfied when they come and congratulate me on a job well done.

Function Host (Current Employee), Plymouth, MAJuly 9, 2015
A typical day at work would be a wedding. Beginning with behind the scenes set up, from linen and table wear, to the bar, and decorations. Serving a three to five coarse meal fast and efficiently. Maintaining a clean and safe environment throughout the night. Completed with cleanup and a thank you to the wonderful crew.

very unprofessional place
server (Former Employee), Troy, ALJuly 8, 2015
Pros: free food, coworkers
Cons: not enough hours, no benifits, work jobs other than your own, unprofessional
So happy I left this place, I made $7.40 an hour a little above minimum wage. Although I was part time my hours varied every week. One week Id get 10 hours the next week id get 16. Needed more structure. management hires worker in your place when you still work there. No professional training. Be expected to work your job and everyone else.Oh don't try to go the extra mile cause you won't get rewarded. I worked for 4 years with the company and still my pay never increased. Only good thing was the coworkers, students and the free food.

Prefer not to say (Current Employee), PittsburghJuly 7, 2015
Great place to work on the administrative end of things. I would not want to be a front line employee though. Office days are relaxed and you have complete freedom to work from home. Traveling is fun seeing as Sodexo is involved in such a variety of business.

Grill Cook (Former Employee), Columbus, OhioJuly 6, 2015
Pros: It's a job
Cons: No future
Constant turmoil and continuous daily problems. Advanced information of possible paid time off and incentive pay were never seen. Most of promises from being hired were just words that lacked truth. Looking to move to better work area and find a job with some employee respect.

Supervisor Custodian (Current Employee), houghton nyJuly 6, 2015
You don't feel like a person here, we are starting to be micromanaged. You work your butt off each and every day and what you do goes unnoticed.

Executive Chef, Production Manager (Former Employee), Sarasota, FLJuly 3, 2015
Pros: This company made you feel like you're part of a team.
Cons: N/A
This company was very large so the benefits was great.

I was a hourly paid employee and chose not to pick salary and that made salary chefs not happy . Out of all the places I've worked in my lifetime this was the best pay and benefits. I had enough money in my 401 k to purchase new vehicle with cash. Of course car dealers don't like that :)

This company gave me the opportunity for advancement:)

Biased approach.
Refreshment Emergence (Former Employee), Lancaster, PAJuly 1, 2015
Pros: Decent aliment.
Cons: No benefits, and biased.
Consisted of preparing various raw vegetables and hot items (Pork, Steak, Chicken) while maintaining and exceeding the regulations set by the NRA. While learning that your work ethic and ability is not a pivotal component while working here. The management staff is low level, overseeing a minimal number of employees while still attempting to save face.

productive work day
action/theme cook (Former Employee), Washington, DCJune 30, 2015
Pros: free lunch and breakfast
Cons: short breaks
On the weekly basis im given a receipt to follow and batch cook prepare foods from scratch with given materials and ingredients to individually cook to order to each customer . the food is cooked in front of the customers to their specific liking. ive obtain a lot of cooking and measuring skills over the years of working with the company. Management were team players and assist with any help if needed. working in this environment with my fellow co-workers was a true joy and great experience. I get along with everyone just fine and we help each other when needed to get any task completed. the only hard part of the job was the little time given to complete an enormous task but I work well under pressure so I will always finish on time. I enjoyed socializing with my customers and satisfy them brings joy to my heart.
