Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Sterling, VA – July 2, 2017
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.
Once solid company that has gradually lost its way and now finds itself chasing after what it once was.
District Manager (Current Employee) – Minneapolis-Saint Paul, MN – May 16, 2018
Large multi-national that has become ham-strung with needless bureaucracy over the past 5 years. Leaders have flitted from strategy to strategy every 18 months due to an inability to clearly announce to the business world who they are and who they are striving to become.
Very committed team members in the field
Revolving door at the executive level--no clear vision for the furture
Food Service-FULL TIME (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 16, 2018
I love the busyness of the job and the many different food service situations. My boss is funny, kind, professional.. I have the opportunity to learn every aspect of the food service field and that is a good way to never be bored..
Management, close to work, work in a college setting, summers off!
Interim General Manager (Current Employee) – Mansfield, CT – May 15, 2018
Sodexo is a great company to work for. I highly recommend them to anyone interested in working in Concessions. I have been fortunate to work for Sodexo at three venues and believe that they care about their employee more then most companies.
No mirco management. Lots of ways to learn more.
Rewarding Employees who go above an beyond. No promotions for 4 years.
Due to high turnover from many younger employees the workload was high and demanding.
Dietary Assistant (Former Employee) – Traverse City, MI – May 15, 2018
The expectation was to stock kitchens and to serve patients and clean up as well. The timeline was very fast and demanding. Work culture was helpful at times but not all employees did their share of the work which made it hard and stressful to complete tasks on time. I often felt like patients could have been given better care if we just had more time or staff to get the job done.
I went to Houston Texas for my Work&Travel Program.I worked inside the zoo and there's a lot of food stalls and two restaurants there. They trained me to be a cashier but most of the time i was assigned in taking orders and serving foods to the customers. Working in a restaurant is a tiring job but a great place to strengthen my customer service skills and customer interactions.
Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – Jackson, MS – May 14, 2018
I learned a lot about the conservation of food. The atmosphere was stressful. Management could've been better. The most enjoyable part about the job was the opportunity to learn about how to conserve food.
Sodexo strives to get by with little staff as possible. Staff are over worked and be littled in their job position.
Cook (Former Employee) – Norman, OK – May 14, 2018
I wouldn't recommend anyone to work for this company. Horrible working hours. If you don't have a life outside of working, this is the place to work. Too much drama in the kitchen. Too much kiss butt to get ahead. Staff were treated unfairly
Typically I spend my day modifying client-drafted contracts to conform to Division and Company polices. Work with Senior Management and Sales to correctly draft financial and operational details to convey the intent of the business.
My experience with varying financial arrangements and risk/reward scenarios has grown exponentially with new, creative business models and expansion into the Sports & Leisure market and a focus on Integrated Facilities Management.
Time management is very important as well as engaged co-workers and senior management. Management's flexibility to manage a work/life balance is evident. Town Hall meetings are held to ensure a satisfied work-force.
Value of and opportunity for Volunteerism, 401(k), casual dress
Operational Unit Manager (Former Employee) – Brazil – May 14, 2018
Working at Sodexo gave me the chance to improve my management skills, as an Operational Unit Manager I could deal with a big diversity of people, good environment to be at, made me sharper to deal with stressful situations, learn and share knowledge with coworkers and leadership. Working at Sodexo Brazil was an amazing experience for me and I do wanna repeat this at Sodexo USA.
Sodexo is a good company to work for you just have to make sure you weren't for the right division the right management team if you do not you will end up stagnant in a place where you will not be able to advance in the company if that's what you're looking for
Chef (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 13, 2018
Ten year career with plenty of opportunity for advancement. Workplace is always changing with additional expectations and limited resources. Additional expectations and duties were applied without removing redundant old expectations. Spent too much time filling out forms and audits that fundamentally covered the same items. District and regional management only cares about completion of these items so they can have checkmarks. Most enjoyable part of job is diverse workplace and expansive network
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Lisle, IL – May 13, 2018
I hate this place. I could care less if the company crashes and burns. They treat their employees like garbage and they have no opportunity for advancement. Being unemployed was better that the bull that they put me through
