    Facilities Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Aramark.

    Interview

    What a waste of my time! I first interviewed with a recruiter via phone. It went well. Was set up with for a second interview via phone because the Director was traveling out of town. We "hit it off" and spoke for over an hour. I received feedback from the recruiter that this Director really liked me and the interview went well. I was then set up for a third interview with the Regional, who also was out of town so that was a phone interview too. Afterward, the recruiter called me to say that discussion went well and I was invited to tour the facility where the job opening was located (which was in another state). I took a vacation day, traveled at my own expense, and drove to meet the Director, walk the buildings, and have the FOURTH interview. I was there for over 2 hours. I called the recruiter but it went to voicemail so I left a message that the interview went well. I stated that I would be out of town and not near email so if she could call me that would be great. Then....nothing. No phone call, nothing. I returned after a week, only to find an email from the recruiter stating the interviews went great but they decided "to go in a different direction". WOW. Can you say NEVER AGAIN??? I can't believe I wasted a vacation day on this company. Be very cautious before putting a lot of time in with them!!!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Aramark (Detroit, MI) in April 2012.

    Interview

    They called me and asked me to come in for an interview. I brought in my resume, which I had already submitted online. It was a pretty basic interview, I was overqualified so the job was obviously mine. I wish I would never have taken it.. Now they have me by the balls.

    Associate District Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aramark (Tyler, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Never got to the face to face interview. I had a phone interview with their HR department. I was told that they would set up the interview and for me to call back. I called back and was given a date and time range that the local manager would call me. I took off from my current job so I could answer the phone and I never got a call. I called HR the next day and left several messages for them to call me. Never got a call. I called the next day and the HR lady acted like she didn't know who I was and didn't care. No apologies for wasting my time, nothing. I really don't want to work with a company that operates like that so I told them I was no longer interested in the position.

    Interview

    Very easy. My former boss just had me fill out an application. No questions were asked. I later found out that he really didn't care about who he hired because he was in the process of already getting another job.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Aramark.

    Interview

    I applied it thru my college, and it took me one day to get their reply. There was nothing special about the interview. There were two interviewers. Most of the questions they asked were about my previous jobs, strengths,weaknesses, scenario questions etc. BUT they did answer some weird questions or questions that are not very related to the job like "Tell me 5 things that you can use with this pen except using it to write". Quite difficult interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Aramark (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I first had a on campus interview with a recruiter. After that I was invited to a one- day group interview in another state. The interview took all day. It was broken into 3 sessions. There was a one-on-one then two panel interviews. The rest of the time you are sitting and socializing with 20 other individuals who are trying to get the job. There is always someone in the room (probably taking notes). It was very interesting and intimidating.
