Cook Interview

Application Details

I applied online - interviewed at ARAMARK in May 2014.

Interview Details

Aramark is unethical in their job interviewing. They are so unorganized that they allow prospective employees to fly all the way to Alaska only to be told that they don't have a job due to their background check. They should tell these employees BEFORE they fly there that they weren't accepted for employment.

    It was tough but I included all my experiences that I had and I started higher than what they were oppering until I got a fair price in the middle of what they were offering and what I wanted. I cheated myself a little but I was still in school and had not graduated yet, so it was fair.

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at ARAMARK in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    After filling out an application it took over two months for a call. After receiving the job I immediately offered the job, I was just told to come and they gave me an overview of the job and ask me if I could handle it and I said yes.

    The process took a day - interviewed at ARAMARK in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    I received a call from one of the managers on a Sunday night, I came in to interview the next day. I was dressed in casual wear because the manager seemed to indicate to me over the phone that they needed workers and that I had pretty much gotten the job. The interview was easy, the manager only asked a couple of questions before he informed me that I got the job.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at ARAMARK in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    I called, came in for an interview; they liked my experience and needed me for an unusual part time shift, so I was hired once I passed a background check.

    Interview Questions
    • I really can't think of any, but I've been cooking for most of my life.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They wanted to pay a lower wage; I went as low as I could go and they went as high they were allowed to pay. If they want you in corporate they can only offer as much as they are allowed; if an individual owner or powerful general manager wants you, you can usually cut a more unusual deal.
