    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at ARAMARK.

    Interview

    I stopped by the Aramark table at the career fair at my university. Gave my information to the table and signed up for an on campus interview. Aramark does not remind you of it so you must check in with the company to confirm the interview! I never did and got a call the day of the interview with minimal time to prepare.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were all very easy. I was pretty much asked about where I would like to placed and my areas of interest. Also asked if I'd be willing to relocate for the summer. The opening question was the generic "tell me what you know about our company." Be prepared for that with any interview.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at ARAMARK (Tuscaloosa, AL) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I did an on campus interview which was fairly easy then flew out to Aramark headquarters in Phily for the second interview where I had two rounds of interviews. I had a relaxed set of interviewers and a most intense pair. I never got a rejection email but got an email saying they had filled most roles. I should have received an offer within two to three weeks but never did, though others got rejection letters, which was followed by an email saying most positions were filled and then nothing.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at ARAMARK (Chicago, IL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical behavioral questions. Why do you want to be accepted into the A2L program?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    negotiable.

    Interview

    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.
