    I applied for the job through a website (snagajob) and was promptly called 2 days later. I was asked to come in for an interview within a week. I met, and interviewed with, the executive chef. After the interview I was told by the executive chef that I was hired on the spot and would start within a couple of weeks.

    Lead Cook Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at ARAMARK in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    The overall interview was of great conception but what you thought would be a great place to work is so much more different than what you were told. During the course of the interview and the walk around the place where currently employed was more than it was cracked up to be. What i assumed would be a great place to work is now a place where I hate to be but have to survive so deal with all the issues and most of all foolishness from the management team. They have what we call their picks and chooses on the people working certain days, hours, and the times instead of using the most qualified person for the job. I think what I was told or shown on the interview is nothing like the workplace that I am working in.

    Interview Questions
    • It was more of what I assumed to be a behavior test with some of the most challenging questions on how to handle or how would you handle certain situations. Trying to answer to the best of your ability and being able to handle some of the situations was difficult but a part of everyday living.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Non negotiable. Accepted what was offered and tried to make the best out of it. I think with the years of experience one have the pay should be based on that.

    Catering Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Palm Beach, FL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at ARAMARK in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    It is difficult to get interviewed for management opportunities without already worked for the company previously. Networking is vital to get the nterview. Most of the time, the job is posted very discretely so only those who know about the opportunity will apply, eliminating multiple interviews for management. Minimal re-evaluation after hired.

    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation was difficult. Most managers start off at a base rate

    Food Service Worker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Mansfield, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mansfield, OH
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ARAMARK in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Most unusual interview I ever experienced. Repeatedly discouraged from accepting position during interview. For good reason. Wish I had taken interviewer's advice. Unfortunately, I didn't. After about a week, a co-worker told me to run. I took hers. However, I can't say I wasn't sufficiently warned ahead of time. Live and learn.

    Interview Questions
    • Really can't remember any challenging questions. Obviously low expectations.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Cut and dry-no negotiations. Take it or leave it. Waited a long time to take drug test due to a lack of paperwork. Company seemed very disorganized, at least at this location.
