I agree with you. My manager could easily take the gold against any truck driver, high school kid or sailor in a "Talking crap - swear off" competition. He would talk smack about everyone behind their back and he would tell people to do things and then yell at them, disavowing any knowledge of what he had instructed. He also would forget important things he was supposed to take care of - register log-ins for employees, pricing, etc.. He told me to log-in my cashiers under my number. When I filed a complaint, I found he was staffing my units with unsavory people and I felt I was being set up for something. Well, I could not defend myself because one of his relatives is the HR director, and there was no fair recourse as my "case" went through his relative and I was ultimately termed for my inability to speak up and go for broke to tell them HE was the one who was in charge of both situations leading to my termination. It was silly. They also sued me because I collected unemployment - the paperwork submitted to "corporate" said I was fired for a completely different reason than that on my write-up/termination forms!

I now work for a private business man and I am going to school. I think I would much rather start my own business than try to fit back into the "corporate" structure.

I worked for the company for two years and have had two managers. one is extremely good and tries to care for people. He is still their and is now a senior manager and tries to work in the flied as much as possible. However, his boss is a joke, an my new boss think he is underpaid so he does not do his work and makes us do more of it and has no people skills, smells like smoke and swears near around and about us. However, I am, and he is not, Interviewing for better paying jobs, with more weekends off. So all in all its about the manager and how many nights/weekends will you work.

Does anybody know what the salary range for Manger 1 is in the Chicago are; and the Mid Michigan/ SE Michigan area

I made a claim of harassment and discrimination, but nobody would handle the situation seriously. The process has been dragged out over 2 months and there has still been no resolution.

Managements way of handling the situation has been to "attack" me and threating me with termination. Right in the handbook it states no employee should worry about retaliation or termination if a formal complaint is made. What a bunch of BS. Management has had absolutley no answers against my claims; so they turned everything against me.

Unless you are truly desperate, do not work for this company. They are unproffessional and unethical. Management is on a team and you are on your own!!!


Here in the Uk this company is also at fault. They terminated my employment in September 2010 And as of to date I still do not have my income tax P45 document from them. IT SEEMS THAT A PRERECQESIT REQUIRMENT to be a Manager with Sodexo you need to suffer from TERRETS Syndrome. The managers over here seem to crawl out from the woodwork like an infestation and just get in the way. Sodexos Transparancy policy is non existent, you cannot get a straight answer out of them. I have been putting my case forwards for UNFAIR Dissmissal now for 6 months, and have been able to prover to the personnel department thatit was the manager that is at fault, So now they have stopped responding to my letters. The contract of employment that Sodexo gave me has not been kept to in any way by them. I was ment to have a CRB check(criminal records check) carried out by Sodexo to be able to work for them. But they did not comply with doing this check. I was working in a Hospital, which makes this check a must. My employment with them was just as cheap labour for 3 months on a reduced salery for the trial period.
