ARAMARK does have decent bebefits inregards to health, eye and dental, and they do iffer sick days anv paid vacation. Howvere, their pay in on the lower end of the spectrum, and I agree that ther are disorganized, and end up with some shaky accounts. I used to work for them, and it seems there is no room to move.
I did like the occasional perks- free tickets etc...
The thing I like best about working with them was the interaction with the clients and the fast pace of an event day.

Generally they are 25% lower than the average. Example for RD's the typical salary is 58K just out of school. The Clinical Nutrition manager avg salary is 72K plus, Aramark pays far less low 60's or high 50's which is such an insult. As for bonus don't look for 1 weeks pay it does not happen to the RD's. I truly think inorder for them to keep RD's they have to revamp their salary scale and perks. They also need to go out htere and inquire so they can meet or surpass their competitors.

manager trying to get a job in Birmingham, Alabama said: FYI. In birmingham, al rd's make $40K and a CNM in one particular hospital only makes $49. At another hospital they make $60K. how is that fair. same city, same job, different pay??

One thing that you have to realize about outsourced companies. They can only pay employees what the contracted amount allows them to pay. If they sign an account at a high rate the employees that work on that account wil make more. If you want to make more money working for a outsourced company you have to make your clients beleive that they can not do it with out you. (Perception is the key) When it's time to renew and your clients can't make it without you they will be willing to pay more to keep you.

I completely agree, there are not overhead budgets that are able to be utilized in our accounts to increase salaries because profit margins are so low. What I can tell you is that my experience has been that the company is very loyal to employees that are very loyal back. It is a great culture and there is a lot of room for advancement. Take it from someone who has been promoted 2 times in 3 years, if you put in your effort and time with ARAMARK, they will recognize it in return.

This may be true but the quality of life, in addition to your hard work and bills should be the optimum for the company to consider ensuring individuals get paid for what they deserve. Paying someone 25% less than what their counterparts make is scrupulous and bad judgement because longevity is the key to a good company. And having to retrain each time is energy wasted, money wasted which in the long term is counterproductive and not conducive ... think in those terms. Presently I work as a cmn 80K, 560 bed facility 4.5 RD avg 56K each RD some 64K (experience and length of time) 4 wks vacation, 15 sick days pay out if not use, 3 personal days and bonus. Plus excellent health benefit. This company promises gold when they come in for a contract and all it is is to acquire the contract - not for once are they thinking of staff.

Paying someone 25% less is not scrupulous and that person should not be complaining. When a offer is made the person accepts. People should not accept offers that they are not happy with. Before you accept a position you should do some research to find out the fare market rate.

If anyone from the company responds about this - ignor them. This is the Facts:

Be very careful as there are several divisions. The Dallas uniform division is well know by people inside - including managers as being called a "Peyton Place."

Lot of people in Mgt, Sales, Drivers in the offices and distribution center sleeping together and such.

Just take a look around the country yourself for non-whites in Management. Take a look around for Females period and then look for the 40's and over new hires.

Can't believe the NAACP hasn't nailed these people yet!... and I'm not African-American.

Sure they do have other than white men in the plant. In the plant working w/ no A/C in the summer on the line and in the grunge jobs.... never management.

You'll also notice a series of on going job ads online for the same exact job. Use the pull on job sites for ARAMARK with a criteria of going back 1 yr. See how many times the ad for the same jobs repeat....when there are only x # of jobs within that location.

The pay is too low to consider for the issues faced. It is in fact below market.

Accept a job if you need a job with good health insurance and/or if you are desparate or unemployed. It's good for getting by while you continue to job search.

Armark is a very disorganized, disfunctional place to work. They act so highly of thier company but place little or no effort to treat their employees with some dignity and respect. On many occasions I have witnessed armark management (the one's that think they are very educate) treat people like they are uneducated . they take all time in the world feeding thier face and collecting bonus or promotions that should go to people tht deserve them. This compnay is not very diverse in race and is very poor in ethics. I think they should be under investigation for all thier lack of money, hours and time and lying to market themselves to be a highly respectable company. They are full of crap and if you are desperate for a job and unemployeed it's best you try to market your self and make your own business because this business is not worth the time and effort to be told bull and to put up with bull. whom ever responds to this and feel that this is wrong you are a b.s armark kiss ass is. thank you have a very blessed day.

I work in culinary mgmt. for the company, about 1 year now. Is it the best job in the world, no, but is it the worst job...absolutely not. I make approx. the same money as I would working at a comparable hotel position. But NO HOLIDAYS, NO WEEKENDS, and only and handful on nights (finished by 8:00 p.m.) per year. I get vacation, holiday, sick and personal time. Yes the bonus could be better. I know from my personal acct., we are pretty well organized, I treat my people well, (my turnover for the year was under 10%, down from 40% the prior year I came on board). Like everything else in life, a jobs a crapshoot. If you get a bad one, you gotta move on.

so exactly how much is the avg salary for you? I know for a fact they do not pay there dietitians to start 58k which is avg, they do not pay their clinical nutrition managers 75 k which is avg, so who are we kidding? And I know for a fact you do not get 4 wks pd vacation, 15 sick day and 3 personal days which is quite avg in most places people work, and that is why RD's always go searching for better companies to work with

I know for a fact that if a salary is below average or if the PTO is not up to par. I would not accept the job. If however I did accept, I would not gripe about it I would just pass the time until something else came along.

No bonuses. You can rent a houseboat, boat or jet ski with an employee discount at the end o the season but it isn't free & most wages pay seasonal help around 9.00 an hour
