    Pros

    The only pro to woking this job for Aramark at Coors Field was to go to free baseball games every day, even though you have to work durring them, also they give you a free employee meal at limited concession stands in the park.

    Cons

    No parking, daily in and out security pat down, feel like cattle going to and from work. Very high volume, low pay.

    Pros

    You get relocation reimbursement and help with tuition

    Cons

    They treat you like crap. they're unethically, upper management don't really work, managers lie to the employees, there's a lot of favoritism that goes on and you can't have a life because they force on the new manager to go to events on the weekends. Eric Foss gives a speech about one Aramark, but he doesn't even know what goes on in the Accounts and with management. All they care about is making their company look good!

    Pros

    Nothing good to say they care only about making money and they treat their emt staff like they are worthless unless they are selling t shirts had to pull tooth and nail to get supplies or provide even basic first aid it's disgusting

    Cons

    They don't appreciate their employees they offer no incentive or even the slightest recognition. EMTS were made to feel that providing emergency care came second to working a cash register and selling their t shirts. Working there actually hurt my credablity as an EMT

    Advice to Management

    It's not all about the t shirts you are required to have EMTs for a reason and maybe if you actually hired some seasoned people instead of brand new kids you wouldn't be the laughing stock of the EMS community and you wouldn't be damaging your employees good name.

    I worked at ARAMARK

    Pros

    I have no positive feedback from working for this company.

    Cons

    It was extremely corporate, run poorly. I was hired in Utah as a front desk agent for a seasonal position. I lived in Illinois, drove across country to Utah, and upon arrival I was told I would be a host in their restaurant making a dollar less then if I was a front desk agent. The hours were terrible, management didnt know what they were doing, it was not a good experience.

    Pros

    Can't think of any, only huge turnover of staff therefore you learn more in a quicker time

    Cons

    Micro managing, slave driving, very low wage, bad management and no taking care of staff worked to the bone with no incentives and not even any praise for hard work

    Advice to Management

    Give staff a break, stop micro-managing and giving massive pressure, pay more attention and care for staff relationships and work/life balance, increase salary and give more appreciation to your team!

    Pros

    Most people are great pending on where you land.

    Cons

    Revenues earned from multi - site accounts that are very profitable do not trickle any to the Front Lines (mid - management & associate levels )...profits stay at the top executives (locally and corporate).

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your value when negotiations about your income...

    Pros

    M-F Hours, paid holidays, no weekends. If you get tips they are probably pretty good.

    Cons

    The lack accountability at all levels in this organization is frightening. Don't think this is a foot in the door to Nike. Most Nike employees, although very nice, are not interested in getting you a job. Barely above minimum wage pay.

    Advice to Management

    Have some standards, don't hire literally anyone off the street. Pay them more than $10 an hour and give your employees some respect, then maybe turnover wont be so high. Maybe change the dress code so people don't look like they work for McDonalds, it would probably make your employees a little happier going to work every day if they felt good in their uniforms. Bottom line is that there is very little accountability in this organization at all levels. Wonder where your profit is going? Ask your cooks, baristas, etc. They have great ideas for ways to reduce waste and to increase sales but management loves to insert its authority so ideas from the bottom get squashed.
