    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Aramark Higher Education.

    Interview Details

    Process was very slow. I began conversations at the end of Sept got the offer middle of November. Start date to be after the new year.

    One surprise was that it was a panel interview, a first for me. Speak to the group making eye contact with each person. Much of the job is presentations to a group the same rules apply for a panel interview.

    Interview Questions
    • No questions were difficult or unexpected. Most of the conversation is walk me through your resume. They do ask specific follow ups so prepare to give examples. I brought in a portfolio of work with specific examples for each bullet on my resume. I've always done that during interviews and have always gotten great feedback and an offer. I recommend that for any job you interview.   Answer Question

    Commissioning Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Aramark Higher Education.

    Interview Details

    The commissioning agent at Aramark sent out a PDF which was distributed throughout my school of engineering. I called the listed number and set up an appointment time. Dress is business casual, but nothing wrong with going smart casual or even business professional for the interview. One interview, and I got a phonecall less than a week later offering me the job. The interview mostly consisted of basic questions about my resume. There were no technical questions. Any 'interview' questions (such as weaknesses, challenges, etc.) were derived from my resume, eg. in context, not out of the blue. A good portion of the interview was my availability and whether I met physical requirements (can you climb a ladder?).

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was difficult - don't put anything fake on your resume and you will be fine.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate. It doesn't seem acceptable for the intern role, which had posted rates already. Any other role I would expect negotiation to be acceptable.

    The interview process was quite simple. First I was interviewed by a different location manager than I had the opportunity to interview with the Food director. From there on it was simple question relating to my work experience and how I would implement that experience into my new role. At most 1 hour interview.
