    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ARAMARK in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Most unusual interview I ever experienced. Repeatedly discouraged from accepting position during interview. For good reason. Wish I had taken interviewer's advice. Unfortunately, I didn't. After about a week, a co-worker told me to run. I took hers. However, I can't say I wasn't sufficiently warned ahead of time. Live and learn.

    Interview Questions
    • Really can't remember any challenging questions. Obviously low expectations.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Cut and dry-no negotiations. Take it or leave it. Waited a long time to take drug test due to a lack of paperwork. Company seemed very disorganized, at least at this location.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at ARAMARK in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview and on-boarding process took less time than other organizations where I've worked. I was contacted by an Aramark recruiter by email, a phone interview was scheduled, and I was then quickly set up with an interview with my prospective boss, then an in-person interview with an RVP, then flown to Dallas for panel and group interviews. It all went very smoothly and effectively. And after I was hired, the on-boarding process was one of the best I have ever experienced.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no really difficult or 'trick' questions, or even unexpected questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was offered more than I expected so there was no real negotiation phase. And I was very happy with Aramark's offer.

    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.
