the atmosphere felt the need to watch your self even while doing the right thing
Housekeeper (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJuly 18, 2018
Wasn't able to use time that was accumulated.(vac) if you needed time off to attend something special even if it was in advance. seemed like the employees allowed to take off was the ones that been there for years as it went by seniority, so if they had put the time in for to be off the whole month be prepared to be disappointed.your best bet was to just call out. the way in which to clock in and out for lunch was just too much. only had an half an hour as opposed to the 45 mins it used to be. by the time you go clock out for lunch then clock back in your lunch was over.
Pros
get off on time
Cons
learn how to walk on eggshells

Hostess/Food Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  Harrisburg, PAJuly 18, 2018
This company provides uniforms and gives employees training on what needs to be done to keep both patients and personnel happy. I was able to glean knowledge of healthcare priorities when it comes to diet and also learn about the inter workings of food services.
Pros
Patients and their stories!
Cons
Not enough work hours.

The management team wasnt the best, but it was a good environment. The other workers were often lazy and they relied too much on the fact that they were in a union

Could be a lot better
Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  United StatesJuly 16, 2018
Management is under constant stress which makes it challenging everyday. I know not every account is this way but I wouldn't recommend this location. Work/life balance could be WAY better but management doesn't see how bad it is.
Pros
Free food, Nice staff
Cons
Terrible boss, terrible work/life balance

Lack of respect for workers
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAJuly 16, 2018
Sodexo often involved disharmony between people who wore blue shirts and people who wore button-downs. There was often disrespect. As a worker who had shifts working in the office as well as on the line, I had to manage the flawed communication between these two groups at the age of 20. People were stressed constantly, fake reports were made, and it was not a day at Sodexo without hearing at least three people say "I hate this place".
Pros
meet nice people
Cons
constant scrutiny

Just a College job
Unloaded morning deliveries, special event server (Former Employee) –  Rensselaer, INJuly 13, 2018
This was just a college job on the campus of my school which has since closed. I couldn't really say much about it. IT got me beer and books money. I'm just trying to fill the character limit.
