    Pros

    Versatile workplace, and always a different work environment. Free concerts while you work and earn wages plus cash tips.

    Cons

    Too far to keep working there for only special events. They don't really offer full-time employment opportunities in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    Only advice to management I have is put your local employees on events that don't bring many tips for the bartenders or stand managers if you want them to stay.

    Pros

    Great place to work and a lot of fun.

    Cons

    They have a lot of employees so if you want to get noticed you have to be very involved and never stop learning.

    Advice to Management

    Give feedback to employees that are doing a great job and your company will continue to succceed.

    Pros

    Aramark is a good company to work for... they are just like other companies out there trying to do the best thing for there employees and customers.

    Cons

    allot of goal but no clear direction. There is always a push to achieve the marginal numbers but no clear direction for management or insight on how...Which more of the managers knew what they were doing....

    Advice to Management

    Invest time in you firing process. alot of dead beats on the payroll. focus more attention on training and personnel.
