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

    Pros

    Starting pay for base work in minimal unless you're a student or something, like me. So i started at 8.50 which isn't too bad, better than 7.25 or something like that.

    Cons

    My workplace didn't have many cons. Mainly just the shortage of required supplies (uniforms and kitchen utensils)

    Summer Intern at Aramark

    I worked at ARAMARK as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was a summer intern at Aramark working at HQ in Philadelphia. The work culture was great! Friendly management, they were always willing to help and questions were welcomed. I personally had a great manager who checked in on me and how I was doing.

    Cons

    Lack of communication made it hard to know what exactly was going on. Sometime management was too busy to respond to questions and that left interns on a wild chase to find the answer in time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more open lines of communication with the interns. Continue to develop the S2L and A2L program more. These people are going to be the future of your company.
