I worked at ARAMARK

Pros

My Area Manager was a straight shooter about changes that would be happening within the company, especially during the economic downturn. He was very clear about changes in job responsibilities & when people needed to accomplish certain tasks. My Area mgr was respectful off my family demands and as long as I had coverage was ok with me being late or missing work if needed.

Cons

A lot of micromanagement. Lack of emphasis on quality and using the team members skills to be creative in menu design. Unfortunately losing accounts for various reasons so growth opportunities are dwindling.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Just as I was told by my Area Mgr, use my resources to help me focus on other things they should do the same for menu design. Go to accounts, place a lifeguard chair in the middle of the cafeteria & watch customers. They are bored by a 3 week rotation. Don't take in house foodservice for granted.

    I have been working at ARAMARK

    Pros

    They focus on growing their people. It was my first position, right out of school, and they gave me the skill set to ascend seamlessly into a Clinical Nutrition Management career. I miss ARAMARK!

    Cons

    Being salaried is never fun, but this is typical of a management position. This is not just a feature of ARAMARK.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would have appreciated more networking opportunities with other accounts; this would promote sharing of best practices and building of an expanded sense of "one best team"
