Leadership Development Program Interview

Leadership Development Program

Interviewed at ARAMARK

Interview Details – I had an on campus screening interview that went well. I was surprised that they asked me about salary in my screening interview (but never on the actual interview day.) Afterwards, I was invited to the Aramark day at a local hotel. Everyone was very friendly but it was very unorganized. We sat idle for most of the day with a short morning info session and 45 (?) minute interviews by pairs of interviewees. It was very confusing because the interviewers were unaware of the position I talked to the screener about. There was very limited information ahead of time about what the specific roles were. You had to wait until the interview day to truly find out information. Most of the positions were to be a manager in an Aramark dining or hospitality facility. When I tried to e-mail my screener to ask questions, she never answered (despite offering to help me). I was also scheduled a second screening interview which was canceled at the last minute once the screener realized I'd already been recommended for the interview day.

Interview Question – mostly predictable behavioral questions   Answer Question

Nutrition Services Manager Interview

Nutrition Services Manager
Columbus, OH

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at ARAMARK in October 2012.

Interview Details – Very unprofessional interview and interviewers were just winging it. But hey, I got the job! This is also how they handle most of the interviewing process. They also hire too many family members and street thugs.

Interview Question – How do you work with different cultures and diversity when faced with disobedience from employees?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They called from new york with an offer and didn't give me room to negotiate. They had a budget
