    The interview was conducted few days after i submitted my application. It was straight to the point and it only lasted 15 min. 2 days later i was hired. The paperwork part was the one that took a little longer because it was an on campus job, but other than that the whole process was fast.

    Cook Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carpentersville, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at ARAMARK Schools in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    They have a job openings section on the Aramark section of the district's site, but it is rarely updated. I found the posting on Craigslist. There was some polite e-mail correspondence and then a simple phone interview where I was asked to come in. I met with the HR manager and the kitchen manager for a short interview. There was then a three month period between when I interviewed and when I was actually brought on to the job

    I went in and talked to the manager. The job ended up being not exactly what I wanted. I thought I would have more freedom as a cook.

    Shift Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at ARAMARK Schools in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    It was a very quick process. I called about an ad in the paper and was called in the next day for an interview. I wouldn't even really call it an interview because once I was in the office, I pretty much had the job. The supervisor was very polite but very business oriented. Even after working for her I would say she was more business than anything. There wasn't a drug test but I don't know if it was just the location I was at or Aramark in general.
