    Pros

    Advanced very quickly
    Worked in multiple fields; expanded knowledge
    Company car; with service and gas. (Even for non-work related trips!)
    Assisted in tuition when returning to school
    Worked my way up from the bottom to Regional manager w/o degree.
    Great benefits and perks (free laptop, cell phone, ect)
    Awesome pay for someone with no degree (110k+/year)

    Cons

    Work long hours sometimes
    "On call" 24/7
    Had 1 rude boss (out of many)
    Hard work sometimes (nothing an overweight 45 year old can't do!)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. It's hard to find a company that takes care of its employees like Aramark does! We all appreciate that y'all understand that a happy work base creates more long term profits!
