Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – Justin, TX – December 10, 2018
It’s all ok environment work place for only coworkers toward each other but the management do have their favorites if your not one of them they can make your job much harder to work at!! That’s for no good reason they will treat you that way!! I was very dedicated to my work. On time everyday and done my job no excuses!! What employer could ask for more then that???

I currently work for Aramark due to a contract takeover. Worst company I have ever worked for in my life. No guidance, unorganized and the worst not care attitude I've ever seen in management. Can't wait for them to go.

Manager would let employees get away with not working. Coworkers would show up to work and sit on phones all day. Not only would they sit all day, but sit up front with manager at the desk. No team work, and the work was not split up equal between employees. Overall food service was a easy job, just needs better management and employees.

The pay is very nice, the hours are great. The union is alright, they don't really try their best in siding with us when we need them the most. Many of the of the people I work with are nice, there a lot that talk about you and make things up.
Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – Cullowhee, NC – November 8, 2018
This job is great for work experience but other than that it’s not a good working environment. The HR was the biggest problem we had. She was a mean person who was no help to anyone. The hours were good but for the amount of work doesn’t match the pay at all. 8.25 is not enough when I have to cook food for thousands of students made-to-order.

Aramark at UNCW definitely has some work to do. The morale around the locations on campus is honestly horrible. The workers act like they hate their jobs and are most of the time unpleasant to work with. Management is a joke. The cattiness and pettiness around campus from people who are supposed to your higher ups is ridiculous. There's nobody to talk to on a personal and anonymous level if you're having issues, because everybody in buddy buddy and has their cliques. No room to grow and better yourself. Pay is decent, but not worth it due to the stress. Nobody is willing to help anybody out- every man for himself, basically. There are also mandatory breaks nobody will tell you about when hiring you- when students are off of campus and locations are closed(school breaks), you are off of work and not getting paid...same goes for weather situations, etc. hurricane and being out of work for a month and not getting paid. Poorly ran and managed.
Free meals on job, Decent pay
Manadatory Unpaid Breaks, Poorly Managed, Stressful, No Help, Cliques and Petty Higher Ups.
Student Food Service Worker (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – October 29, 2018
I am currently still employed at this job. It works well with my class schedule and the managers are understanding of abrupt situations that might occur. The environment is always welcoming and it is a social environment where I have to interact with customers on the daily basis.

I worked here and liked what I did but its surprising how we all dont fell the same about we work and who is hired and how your actions can hurt a family with one bread winner trying to make ends meet,I guess if its not your life it does not matter.
Food Service Worker (Current Employee) – Gainesville, FL – October 25, 2018
A typical day at work could be good or bad, due to being understaffed or at least where I worked at for Aramark. Management is horrible! When it comes to management its not really a teamwork thing, they do what they have to do to keep their buts from being in hot water. So if that takes working you to death in order to keep themselves out of hot water they'll do it. The workplace culture was cool, I worked on UF campus so I met a lot of different personalities and enjoyed being around the gator environment. The hardest part of the job is having to work two different food stations without any help! This happens almost majority of the workdays.
Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – Harrisonburg, VA – October 17, 2018
Typically I worked in the evenings and so I worked with the same people usually. It consisted of preparing the food station, and then restocking it during the shift as needed, and then at the end, cleaning the station and either storing the safe food back in the fridges, or throwing the old food away. I learned a lot about food safety at this job, but also how to work as a team and help each other out when there was a rush. The management started off good, but then it started to go downhill. The management team would sometimes bring their personal life into the professional life, which you just can't do. The culture of the workplace was fun, but also very negative and lazy. People would constantly complain and some would take their time in cleaning up, which resulted in others having to step in and help. The hardest part of the job would be standing at a station by yourself and not having anyone to talk to and if you finished up all your tasks and just sat there, management would get mad at you. The most enjoyable part were the coworkers when they were in a good mood.
free meals while on shift, fun coworkers, flexible around my schedule, understanding of school needs
