Manager (Current Employee) – Alabama – December 7, 2018
The company does not try to groom current employees, nor do they support you in your role. Stressful work environment both on the ground and with corporate. The salary definitely doesn't match the hours that you put in. And free food that doesn't even taste all that great doesn't make up for it.
workplace culture, stressful environment, long hours, work weekends
Working for armark was a bad choice the work conditions were bad in the summer its way to hot in the build and in the winter you freeze. Other then that the manager really did not seem to care if you had any concerns . Trying to get your vacation time was next to in possible.
Custodian/Janitor (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – December 6, 2018
Not enough cleaning supplies or chemicals to work with everyday there's a hunt for cleaning supplies and chemicals by the time you get the cleaning supplies needed an hour has passed housekeepers buy their own chemicals to work with using their own money for a corporation that doesn't pay well. Cant afford the Healthcare it's to high for the little pay management have their picks and you are driving your car from each site without mileage or gas pay.
Shuttle Driver (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – December 6, 2018
I was the Shuttle Driver for AUS in Kansas City MO from 2014- 2018. In the beginning I onboarded through a Temp agency. I was offered the position with the Company 1 month after starting @18 an hour I declined the offer and countered at 20 an hour. Year 1- 50-55 hrs a week unloading/reloading with assistance from load build employee's. First year raise 35 cents an hour. Year 2- 53-57 hours a week no longer assistance from load build employee's added managing all maintained scheduling of Semi and Trailer. Raise was 50 cents. Year 3- 55-57 hours a week unloading everything solo, managing your equipment now staging depot loads and managing depot clean return and small inventory levels at depot location. Raise 18 cents. Year-4 57-60+ hours per week. Unloading and loading everything solo, managing your equipment, staging loads, depot inventory management, putting depot logo mats in route loads or in route slots, putting away new orders and delays coming back from the stockroom in Des Moines Iowa, running hauls on the weekends when needed. So as you can see AA the company did away with some overhead they needed to fill the void so some of it fell upon the Shuttle Driver. About 5 months ago I approached our General Manager with this laid out how my work load has increased and asked for $24 an hour after I had PROVEN I could in fact handle the increase in duties. She agreed and submitted the request to our regional HR rep in Chicago who in turn compared my current compensation with that of other Shuttle Drivers in the region to determine in her opinion I was already makingmore... enough money. So after failure to come to terms I gave the company a 3 week notice which I served completely and walked away. Aramark WILL let you walk over a couple of dollars. My advice to any Shuttle Driver is to Negotiate, Negotiate, Negotiate! When you are hiring on! They do have a swing that the General Mangers can use so if the job is 20 an hour they have about a 5 dollar per hour window in which they can play with! So ask for More!!!!!!less
Independence if you're good, scheduling flexibility, most of your coworkers are good people.
High turnover(5 GM's in 4 years) 16 DM's, no longer given turkeys for Thanksgiving. Work flow is dependant on Plant speed.
I loved working for Aramark the only reason why I left because the pay sucked!! I felt like I wasn't getting the pay that I should of been getting especially after working there for almost 9 years. They put me as lead and I wasnt making lead money. The hours were great I was able to take my kids to school and get to work and be off before they got off.

District Manager (Current Employee) – Toledo, OH – December 3, 2018
Hours are long and can be grueling. The pay is good and you don't work weekends. That being said, managers deal with constant negative feedback from customers due to constant price increases and the company revenue growth strategy is gauging their current customers instead of taking care of them and finding new ones.
Club Level Cook (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – December 3, 2018
Not all Aramark entities are like the particular one in which I am referring to the Lincoln Financial FieldWay home of the Philadelphia Eagles. The hire ups need some type of compassion courses or something a lot of those people talk to you like your a child or like they think there better than you are.
