    Convenient for a college student, but wouldn't choose Chartwells for a career position

    Food Service Worker (Former Employee)
    Cookeville, TN

    ProsSince they work at a college campus, they work around class schedules. Raises are given every year. The hourly compensation is more than I would find anywhere else. There are many different places to work on campus.

    ConsSchedules revolve around the semester, so most employees are laid off for a month for Christmas break and 3 months for summer break; you get unemployment, but it's not steady pay. Lack of communication makes the place run very ineffectively.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication needs to be improved! None of the managers communicate which means none of the employees have any idea what's going on until the very last minute.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Decent Part time job to finance my college expenses

    Caterer (Former Employee)

    Consnot good for someone looking to advance their career (more of just a temporary fit), long hours, there are a few disturbing employees, extremely low pay and no benefits for part time employees

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not a bad company to work for.

    Caterer (Current Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsManagement and staff are easy to get along with and are fun to work with.

    ConsDifficult to plan your schedule more than a week in advance. Parties occur when they do and you have to plan your work schedule around them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is workable. However they expect you to hustle and get the job done on a deadline. This is generally expected anywhere, but in this industry it is critical to job performance and customer loyalty.

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

    Food Service

    Food Service (Former Employee)
    Saint Louis, MO

    ProsWorkers were helpful in training, good at their work and maintained positive relations with students.

    ConsUpper management changed often, causing changes in routine, requirements and expectations. Upper management often had little to no hands on food experience, making their expectations often unrealistic

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
