    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aramark in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online 04/18/2017 for the Step Up 2 Leadership program. Received an email on 04/20 to 'like' them on Facebook and take a geographical survey for where I wanted to be located (mind you this is only a 10-12 week paid program and I'm not relocating for that...) and to attach my resume and they'd get back to me within 2 weeks if I was eligible for the video interview. Flash forward to 04/24 and I received the video interview link and another geographical survey along with preferences for the field I wanted to be in. Did the interview (see questions below) and it said it'd be up to four weeks. Received an email 05/12 letting me know I was eligible and they were looking where to place me. My options are very limited since I won't relocate for that program (willing to relocate for Accelerate 2 Leadership program though) and my field is one of the limited availability ones unfortunately. But at least I was found eligible and am sitting in the pool!

    Timeline:
    04/18/17 - Applied
    04/20/17 - Received Geographical questionnaire and must 'like' them on fb, re-attach resume
    04/24/17 - Received another geographical questionnaire and video interview link
    05/12/17 - Found eligible for Step Up 2 Leadership Program and awaiting for placement.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aramark in April 2017.

    Interview

    Kind of awkward pre-recorded video interview. Questions are written out and you record yourself on webcam giving a 2 minute max. answer to about 5 questions. Had opportunity to re-record each question one more time.

    The worst part about all of this is that you don't have contact with an actual person, just a bunch of automated emails and robots. I got an email a week after I filled out the eligibility survey and did my interview saying they could not find a position that fit my preferences. However, here's the weird part. The week after that they also sent me another email saying I was moving onto the next phase due to a great interview. All in all, it's a very unorganized process and it would serve them well to try and have a little more human contact. The questions were pretty standard too.

    Interview Questions

    • Have you ever had an upset or unsatisfied customer? What was the situation? How did you deal with it? What was the result?   Answer Question
    • Name a time you inspired others to follow your direction.   Answer Question
    • Name your greatest accomplishment at an organization/club.   Answer Question
    • What is a position that you have worked in that made you feel uncomfortable? What factors made you uncomfortable and how did you manage to overcome the situation?   Answer Question
    • Write an elevator pitch for why you'd be a good fit at Aramark.   1 Answer
