I worked at ARAMARK

Pros

The benefits were decent, it had a good location, tools to achieve the work expected, pay was ok for the type of business

Cons

Difficult to advance, employment very cyclicle, as management, labor pool was very low quality (no drug testing) , many difficult to manage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need better mechanisms to advance performing employees. There is not enough recognition for jobs well done managing a unit under high difficulty levels.

    Not many jobs out of the cities.
    Sometimes the clients are difficult to work with (unreasonable).
    Sometimes you are expected to do large catering jobs on the fly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get into the components more. See who is really doing the work at your components. Some of the more remote components are employing managers that are computer illiterate, and some managers who get paid salaries are working a 8-3 schedule.

    Pros

    Your work schedule depends upon the operation. If the operation is only opened for breakfast & lunch M-F, then you benefit from being a food service manager having evenings, weekends & holidays off.

    Cons

    Technology seems behind the times, lack of Window based systems, POS, detailed reports, lot of manual work and duplication of effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Other companies try to locate managers closer to their home so they don't have such long drives on top of long work schedules.
