I LOVE working here. Best job I have had so far.

Cashier/Vendor (Current Employee)
The Woodlands, TX

I have been working at ARAMARK Sports & Entertainment Group part-time for more than 5 years

ProsI get to listen to every concert for FREE. Minimum wage plus tips instead of the measly $2.13 at restaurants, turns out to be good $$$$$ for the amount of work put in. Work/Life balance is great. Opportunity to work Texans games at Reliant stadium.

ConsThe job is seasonal (May-Septemeber). Work schedule is not steady. Sometimes you can go 2-3 weeks without working and then have 4 concerts in a row from Thursday to Sunday. The job is outdoors, so in June-August you are working in extreme heat.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is no opportunity for promotion. After working there for 6 years, its time to move on

Loved the visitors and employees, hated the big corporate attitudes that employees don't matter.

Server (Former Employee)
Page, AZ

I worked at ARAMARK Sports & Entertainment Group full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe scenery is awesome, dorms are affordable. They offer a few RV spaces. Employee Cafeteria serves big meals for about $6.00. Pretty much limited to 40 hours a week in the season.

ConsMinimum wage or close to it. Cannot always take an employee boat for days off, unless you work for boat rentals, they seem to get first pick. There is nothing to do in housing and often the organized gatherings are boring. The rec hall is joke.No private dorms or kitchen in dorm. There is no tv in the dorms. If you want to make money for the summer, don't work here unless you are a bellman, or server that makes good tips. The actual on the job training process sucks because they needed you 3 weeks ago. Be ready to jump in. No benefits for seasonal staff. Even repeat seasonal staff and long time employees seem to be disposable. Many people in supervisor or manager spots that have not business being there. Not sure what happens to tips, sometimes I don't see mine on checks. Management seems to care more about money than customer service and will lie to your face. Okay for a summer seasonal job if you don't take it all to serious, have a car and like the area. Don't come here for a career. Right to work state. The heat if you work outside.

Advice to Senior ManagementReward those who return season after season better. Put better value towards your employees instead of your own pockets...You dumped a bunch of long time people in Oct. and never even blinked. Don't treat your people like a number.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Awesome place to work

Culinary Team (Current Employee)
Phila, PA

I have been working at ARAMARK Sports & Entertainment Group full-time for more than a year

ProsYou learn how to work in a team structured environment. I have also have great chefs who are willing to teach every employee how to be better and always encourage each employee to always be better than the last event. Working at Aramark allows me to take my college experience and put it into use. My bosses always accept new ideas and encourage them.

ConsThe only challenges is the hours sometimes and days but when you love what you do the challenge is short lived. The pay is not that lucrative but you gain good experience.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!!!!! Awesome management team

Great learning experience, not a long term employer

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at ARAMARK Sports & Entertainment Group full-time for more than a year

ProsHuge company with a lot of opportunity to move to different divisions or positions. They don't care if you have a degree and most of their managers do not have them.

ConsNot a huge amount of respect for their employees. Always changing policies and procedures so it is hard to keep up. Rarely get rid of bad managers.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake smarter promotions.
