    Anonymous Employee in Appleton, WI
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at ARAMARK Schools (Appleton, WI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was asked to tell about my history and job duties, it was a 1 person interview, not very friendly, did not have answers to questions I had about the company or current jobs. The interview lasted around 1/2 hour. I currently do all the hiring in the company i am at know, I was not impressed with this interview process. I think they need to train there hiring personal better if they want to bring in good qualified personal.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at ARAMARK Schools (Carpentersville, IL) in August 2010.

    Interview

    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

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at ARAMARK Schools in August 2008.

    Interview

    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.
