    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at ARAMARK in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    There were 3 interviews. One Phone Interview with the Director. Then an interview with the Manager. Then a interview with the Manager and Director. They verbally offered me the position but I had to wait for letter in the mail from Corporate with the salary. There was no room for salary negotiation and the direct management didn't have say in the salary either.

    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.

    Accelerate to Leadership Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I found out about this program from my university's career center and applied on Aramark website. About 2 weeks later, I got an email said that I met the requirements and schedule a 30 minute phone interview. The Phone Interview was really easy; just behavioral question, what you know about the program, how did you find out program, what you your goals, and will you willing to relocated. Depend on your conversation skills and know how to find out if you get selected for the 2nd round, you can get an answer right after your phone interview. Then 2 weeks later, I got an email with an invitation to attend the final assessment in PA. They flown me there and paid for all the expenses. The final Interview was intimidated at first because there will be around 100+ per session and there are 2 sessions. I was in the first session and had 2 interviews and they both really good. They will give you a schedule for the interviews and it will said when is your turn. You might have some gaps in between your interview so make sure to talk to people and just enjoy yourself. There will be a panel of 2 for each interview and you got to be confident when you walk in and show them you interested in the position. Since you will interview with different people from different industries, you have to be good at improvised and think on the spot because they might ask you about stuff in their specific industry. A good interview tend to be more conversation and both parties enjoy the interview. Make sure you make yourself stand out from the crowd and ask them to hire you (of course not in a direct way :D ). At the end of the interviews, they will give you a little gift and send you to the airport to depart for your flight back home. Then 2 weeks later, I received a call said that I did really good in the interview and I got offer a position. Make sure to keep this in mind, they will repeatedly as you if you willing to relocated. However, if you answer yes, they might move you, not that they move you for sure, just depend on where your skill fit most.

    Interview Questions
    • Sometimes, they will ask for stuff related to their specific industries and you must be able to give them the answer that satisfied them. You have to think on the spot and cannot really prepare for this because you won't find out who you will interview with until you attend the welcoming event.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation because the offer package was good as a college grad and they paid for my relocation.
