Housekeeping (Former Employee) –  Camden, NJJanuary 15, 2019
I learn to work fast and to keep moving in a fast pace. The management were helpful went you need them. There is different culture there and they don't really act in a nicely manner with others. Some get along and some done. The hardest par of the job is working fast to get everything done in little time.
Pros
Wrking with a Union
Cons
Wroking with people that don't want to work together.

Soil Sorter (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHJanuary 15, 2019
Being productive is a main theme, and efficient work habits play a major role at Sodexo. Most of the work is repetitive but does not require much intelligence to do.
Pros
30 minute lunch
Cons
supervisors

I was working primarily for the main chief (cook) and was taught to make new dishes almost every other shift. I really enjoyed it because I LOVE to learn something new everyday.

Work by yourself.
Grill Cook (Former Employee) –  Billings, MTJanuary 14, 2019
As I mentioned before as a grill cook you do everything by yourself. You can start very early in the morning. And you can work an afternoon shift to. Supervisors will only help you if absolutely needed. Pay is to little for the work you do. If you love working alone this is the job for you. Management is okay. And like every job there are some not so nice people.
Pros
Great benefits, $5.00 free lunch.
Cons
Work by yourself, some mean people, does not pay enough.

Dietary hostess (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJanuary 13, 2019
Sodexo is not a good company to many turnovers with management. Hiring new employees but to cheap of a company to replace laptops and phones that are needed for the job. Unethical behavior with management. Dishwasher always breaking down silverware was always dirty but management wanted us to still use it . No type of structure day to day you did not no what you would be doing . No type of help from management especially for new employees new employees not being trained properly. Employees hired part time but working full 12 hrs and management never doing anything about it even when employees complained. HR sucks only looks out for their job as well as management.
Pros
Paid lunch
Cons
Everything

Patient Transporter (Former Employee) –  New JerseyJanuary 13, 2019
Get your patients safely from point A to B
If there were no patients you sit around and wait (rare)
Time management is key as you were timed per patient per hour
If you don’t have satisfactory times you will be reprimanded
Pros
Hospital job security
Cons
Reprimanded for not moving fast enough

Dining Room Manager (Former Employee) –  MarylandJanuary 11, 2019
Works days so long you just want to collapse when you get home, covering multiple positions instead of the one you get paid for, obvious favoritism and disregard for the rules for certain individuals. If that is the kind of environment you like, then this is for you.

Food Service Worker (Current Employee) –  Jonesboro, ARJanuary 10, 2019
Overall it’s pretty simple work, but the environment and pay could be a lot better. Working in Food Service, as expected, can have its ups and downs, but if you deal with it, this is the job for you.

Typical Cafeteria Food
Customer Service/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Westborough, MAJanuary 9, 2019
They went through alot of managers while I was there.

I enjoyed being a cashier.

Being located in a business building made it difficult because there were a number of customers were regulars and thought they should be treated with discounts/favors. They would get really upset when I stood my ground and said you need to pay for what you get and you need to pay the full amount before you can leave with the food. And almost every time they would try to argue about prices/ wanting discounts etc.

Other people were very nice and made it a enjoyable experience working there.
