ARAMARK is a great company to move up quickly with

Premium Services Manager (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

I worked at ARAMARK full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat opportunities for advancement, great work environment, ability to switch to new roles during off seasons.

ConsThe hours in Sports, Leisure, Corrections are extremely long with 1-2 days off per week. I averaged a 60 hour work week (12 hour days). Too many corporate 'busy work' programs to track your job.

Advice to Senior ManagementErik Foss has helped implement new programs and is on the right path. Sometimes hierarchy is based on length of time worked with the company versus who has the best matched skills -this should be changed.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
