    I worked at ARAMARK Refreshment full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay, several benefit options to choose from.

    Cons

    Company is set up to be an excellent organization. However, each facility is run as its own company with very few standard operating procedures across the board. This causes many problems and makes it difficult to manage because systems have not been put in place for consistency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop processes that must be followed. Don't allow employees to dictated what they are going to do, or let a threat of an employee quitting their job be a threat to the company.

    I have been working at ARAMARK Refreshment full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    All companies operate on a budget but getting the tools, training and products to increase customer experience is on the tip of Managements lips but just not in the budget. "Maybe next month...." "Good intentions" Schedule a Meeting about our "Mandatory" meeting next month..

    Cons

    Every employee is simply trying to survive the day, constantly putting out fires , temporary fixes on equipment (paper clips, stir sticks to hold together brewers) Triple the routing efficiency with constant product outages/shortages/Back orders.
    With zero opportunity to promote with in its a great felony friendly company to gain experience to move up on in industry, but not up with in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually listen to Senior managements serve with Passion and empower your front line with the tools they actually need to provide those "break-time experiences" rather than "Break-time outages" be it Equipment failure or product outages.

    Pros

    This company has great benefits and, overall, a strong corporate culture. The compensation is fair.

    Cons

    Business comes first, people management is secondary, which lowers morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Business initiatives will be more effective if management supports employee morale. Employees will get behind any strategy and work to support management decisions if they are happy and feel a part of the company's growth.

    I have been working at ARAMARK Refreshment full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work life balance, supportive team members, interesting customers who will stretch your abilities in problem solving. Time off and working enviorment is VERY nice compared to other local companies.

    Cons

    No stock option program. Difficult to move the change needle as quickly as they need to do so. Almost too reactive to SWOT analysis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foss and team seem to be slowly turning the ship, please DO NOT stop the path of change that you have begun.

    Pros

    They pretty much leave you alone if you are selling consistently and keeping a decent pipeline

    Cons

    when you aren't hitting your numbers or improving they want to shadow every part of your day and my sales manager was pretty obnoxious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you hire really good, professional sales people you don't really need a sales manager, perhaps a leader with a bonus structure who also performs sales and sales management duties

    Pros

    Good name, great co workers

    Cons

    Aramark has so much arrogance when in comes to their standing with customers . They won't bend on price, insist on long term contracts and work you like you're a Slave. I was a sales rep and after hired they took all the good part out of my territory and gave it to the other sales rep; what's more they never supported me in the field when I needed help and I rarely ever heard from my manager. The office culture is one of favorites and my manager continually made "off colored" remarks when I saw him. The local operations team were incompetent and I continually had to tell potential customers we were best service providors which was a lie.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower prices, adapt with economy and stop creating turnover of employees .

    Pros

    Good pay. Teamsters Union if you like a Union job. Very self driven job. Not too many people breathing down your neck and you're out on the road.

    Cons

    Long hours. You're not done until you're done. It can be back breaking work. The managers aren't interested in getting input from the guys in the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to listen to their employees suggestions and not be so secretive about their decision making process. They should be more inclusive with their employees.
