    very friendly recruiter. Met with the hiring managers for 2 different positions. Both were very informative about the positions they were interviewing for. Very professional and relaxed at the same time. They did not hide the pros and cons about the jobs.

    A2L Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at ARAMARK in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I originally learned about the A2L program at a college career fair. I had an interview the next day and was received an email the next week that I was being flown to Philadelphia, PA for the second round of interviews. The flight and hotel was paid for by ARAMARK. I left in the morning on a monday and had my interviews on Tuesday. I was back home by Tuesday evening. I had basically 2 interviews on Tuesday morning. Each had 2 or 3 people asking questions. The most important thing was that I was willing to relocate. I was asked to give 3 of my top choices for the different hubs of where I would want to relocate but was offered a location in Chicago (which was none of the three locations). Benefits and salary were non-negotiable but were pretty decent.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at ARAMARK in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I met the representatives at the Career Fair at my university, and after speaking with them I got a first round interview on campus the next day. About 3 weeks later I got invited to Philadelphia for the final round interviews. They put us in a hotel outside of the airport, where the interviews were taking place. Two interviews with two interviewers each. The experience was very rewarding and positive. Questions were mostly situational.

    Accelerate to Leadership Program Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at ARAMARK in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The Process took about three months from beginning to end. They fly you out to Philadelphia and pay for everything. The Interviews were not that bad, I think the phone interview was harder than my final interviews because I did not know what they were going to ask me; where the final interview is basically you selling yourself. You have to be willing to move anywhere in the country; I got an offer and accepted my offer but my location changed a few times; if you are okay with moving you will do fine in the interviews then. Salary for my position and job is great I expected way less!

    No but they give you enough things that should make you be okay with accepting the job.
