    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Aramark.

    Interview

    I was contacted within two weeks of submitting a resume. There was a phone screening and then an onsite interview with the recruiter. It was a standard process with typical interview questions. The entire process took about 4 weeks. They asked about previous experience and provided information about payment. This was an hourly rate that was not negotiable.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Aramark (West Orange, NJ).

    It was pretty direct. They send you an email asking when can you come in for an interview. Once you confirm that they tell you where to go and the interview only takes a few minutes and you're asked basic questions. And they notify you about you being hired immediately.

    Accelerate to Leadership Program Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Aramark (Philadelphia, PA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I randomly applied online to the A2L program in October 2016. A few days later I got an email saying that I was invited to do a a video interview where I recorded my responses to 6 or so basic HR questions. A week after that I got an email saying that I was "eligible to join Aramark's A2L program." I got this email in late October 2016, and hadn't heard from them at all for the following few months. I began to get worried and contacted the Campus Recruiting team twice with no response. Finally, in late February 2017 after literally no contact, I got a call from a Recruiting Partner saying they had found a placement for me and were emailing me my official offer.

    Moral of the story: Patience, people! If you want this, be fairly aggressive -- reach out to see where you're at in the process.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Aramark in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to the position online on Thursday, 9/22/2016. On Monday 10/03, like a week and a half later, they asked me to do the online interview. They use a software that allows the applicant to record themselves answering the questions. The kicker is, you only have two chances to give the perfect answer.

    Literally 4 days later, I got an email saying that I was eligible for the program! In the email, they asked me to complete a preference survey stating where I would like to be relocated to. I was open to travel anywhere in the U.S.

    A month later, in November, I got an email stating that the identification timeline has been delayed and that I should hear something throughout the holiday. I'm currently still waiting eagerly, as my start date is February 20th.
