    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Aramark (Des Moines, IA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Was called by food service supervisor. Sat in employee dining room with chef and food service supervisor. We talked about their situation and how their employees were not living up to expectations, and were leaving. We talked about my experience, and that I was overqualified. I needed the job, so I continued with interview. I was told everyone starts part time, and then as full time positions opened up they would fill them with people they felt deserved the hours.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Aramark (Elizabeth, NJ) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring manager which I met with was very kind and patient. Al-thought he did not give much in-site on the company expectations of me and the role I would have in the facility until I asked. I basically took over the interview at the point of Q&A. He asked several valid questions that did apply to the job title such as, why did I choose that particular place to work.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aramark (Denali Park, AK) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Aramark is unethical in their job interviewing. They are so unorganized that they allow prospective employees to fly all the way to Alaska only to be told that they don't have a job due to their background check. They should tell these employees BEFORE they fly there that they weren't accepted for employment.
