Good place to work. Very busy.
Review schedules for all 4 clubs and bring to kitchen. Make sure all staff present by 2:00 pm and assure all clubs are ready for afternoon and evening rush. Make sure all staff is in proper uniforms, all food is ready and prepared and bar staff is ready. Communicate with client with any issue that may arrive.

Abundant opportunities for challenge and development
Overall, great company to work for! Many opportunities for professional growth and development. Company currently sorting itself out post-Covid due to impact of pandemic on food service industr,. Great work/life balance, very "human" working environment in corporate office. Sodexo is a very large organization, so ability to navigate dynamic, complex organizations is a must.

Great Place for Part Time Work
Sodexo is a good company, they do their best to work with your schedule and the need of the employer they are sub-contracted at. Benefits are pretty good. Holidays are the usual. I'd recommend working for the company.

Very big on diversity and inclusion
I love the passion Sodexo has for being diverse and inclusive within the workplace culture. Many of the departments are flexible but not all. I wish they would offer more roles for virtual jobs.

Endless Opportunities
The culture of Sodexo is true to being about it's employees as a whole. But each Sodexo account is different; work life-balance will also depend on your account and the team you're surrounded with. There are many opportunities and you can move up anywhere around the country.

Sodexo markets itself as a Quality of Life Organization
Although Sodexo bases it's Service on it's goal to provide Quality of Life services to it's clients, it does not provide the same level of service to it's own employees. I spent many years in a management role at Sodexo protecting the rights of managers and employees who were regularly denied their vacation, sick days, etc.. I witnessed multiple situations of discrimination against employees based on race and disability, yet they claim to be a company that promotes diversity. It is sad that an organization with as many resources as Sodexo still expects it's managers to work 80 hour work weeks and handle volumes that are unheard of in business.

If you are getting a job here in Virginia they won't pay you much. But if you work in Maryland or DC they will pay you more but you will work part time.

Your Career is in your own hands
Sodexo offers a lot of opportunities and training in support of their managers, If they ever lose an account the keep staff and reallocate the talent based on needs of the company.

Not the best place
I appreciate my job and loved my coworkers but the management sucked very badly! They were rude and didn’t know how to really manage people. Ironically they weren’t people’s people.

Horrible company
I have worked for this company many times over the years and this time has to be the worst. I was working for another company at my location when Sodexo took over the contract. I didn’t have much of a choice but to stay since I needed my job
Pros
Paid weekly, no weekends and all government holidays off
Cons
Low pay and under staffed

Large Organization
Pockets of greatness. Sodexo is a large organization with aspirations of growth. The current pressures are due to growth initiatives and recalibrating team.

Busy Stressful place
I was a Dishwasher, which was almost the lowest on the totem pole, and none of my co-workers were particularly interested in working hard enough to get everything done that needed to get done, and the management that was above our little place wasn't very helpful in that regard...not to mention the Head Chef of the location I worked at was always mad at us if something wasn't done by the time she needed it, or if there was water "in her kitchen" because Upper Level Management had decided that we needed to wash the pots and pans in the kitchen instead of in the dishroom where we could MUCH more easily clean them. That...was a bit of a fiasco...
Pros
Free Breakfast/lunch/dinner depending on shift, actually had insurance at this job that wasn't horrible
Cons
Co-workers and upper management who could NOT see what I was trying to do and get done quickly, raises were absolutely minuscule, and were annually after a review at the beginning of the year about the year prior.

this company will slowly suck the life out of you
this company is horrible. save yourself & your career, go work for anybody but SDX. you will be stuck with a horrible manager, HR will do nothing to support you, and you will eventually be sold out, cast aside, and forgotten like yesterday's diapers.
