    Pros

    Decent hiring process. Can take some leftover food home.

    Cons

    Shift changes and sometimes have to stay after hours. Also wastes a lot of food as the food we didn't sell are usually thrown away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more ecofriendly and have a more stable work schedule.

    I worked at ARAMARK part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good training, safety is highly pushed, clean facilities, flexible hours

    Cons

    Not enough staff, management was hard working, management put no limit on vacation or sick time so staff would call out regularly which is what led to not enough staff being present, overtime is not allowed at all and is highly enforced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider firing employees that call out too much, have staff available on call, allow overtime when workers are desperately needed.

    I worked at ARAMARK as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The best thing about this job is the fun enviroment and friends you make. Never a dull moment. I worked at Turner Field so if you're a baseball fan that was a huge plus. Paid out nightly after the venue closed. Servers made anywhere from $125-$300 nightly in tips alone. Bartenders made double that.

    Cons

    Supervisor was a insecure little troll with little respect for her employees. Also I'm like 90% certain the manager was stealing. Bus boys made the least amount of money but he went after them because we didn't have a way of checking sales for the night or tip data. Working every weekend in the summer starts to suck after awhile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop stealing from the little guy and treat your employees as equals. A higher pay grade or fancy title doesn't make anyone above others.
