    Pros

    Management cares about the employees.
    Management goes out of their way to make sure employees have everything they need to do their jobs.

    Cons

    I cannot think of anything negative to say about this company. The benefits were good, the time off was appropriate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your staff, meeting with them from time to time and the weekly webcast is a GREAT idea.

    Courteous and respectful

    Current Employee - Hostess in Albany, GA

    Pros

    They have some great core values and works like a team. They are helpful and willing to work with you not against you.

    Cons

    Sometimes like with a big company the communication lacks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be more improvement on training and also communicating. To be a manager does not mean for you not do anything, but you must set a good example on what to do.

    Pros

    Lots of training opportunities, and room for growth. Management cares about how the staff is doing and isn't just concerned with the bottom line.

    Cons

    I cannot think of a negative thing to say about this company. I would still be working for them if they had a position in my area of the country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to keep doing what they are doing to retain the talent they have.

    Pros

    Advanced very quickly
    Worked in multiple fields; expanded knowledge
    Company car; with service and gas. (Even for non-work related trips!)
    Assisted in tuition when returning to school
    Worked my way up from the bottom to Regional manager w/o degree.
    Great benefits and perks (free laptop, cell phone, ect)
    Awesome pay for someone with no degree (110k+/year)

    Cons

    Work long hours sometimes
    "On call" 24/7
    Had 1 rude boss (out of many)
    Hard work sometimes (nothing an overweight 45 year old can't do!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work. It's hard to find a company that takes care of its employees like Aramark does! We all appreciate that y'all understand that a happy work base creates more long term profits!
