    I have been working at Aramark full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It pays within market range for the area. They tuition reimbursement make it worth your wild to finish a degree you may have started in the past. Mmmm... supervisor is pretty laid back. We've had our up's and down's but neither of us are perfect. Small team which I'm debating if it's a good or bad thing.

    Cons

    The stigma behind the department is sketchy. They really don't promote much from within. They'd rather hire temps. It's just easier for them. Management really likes to look for someone to blame instead of a solution. The bureaucracy of the building can be a little much at times. Oh and the gossiping.. oooooooh the gossiping. Small work environments are good for intimacy and family-like culture in the work place, but when you work with lower level intelligence; one apple can spoil the entire bunch.

    Advice to Management

    Find solutions not point fingers.

    Application

    The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Aramark.

    Interview

    Integrity - 1) They made me drive 300 miles each way to interview with VP. They said they were going to pay for expenses. Never did. 2) flew me from west coast to chicago to meet president. One hour after scheduled meeting president shows up, asked 3-4 questions and left. Zero empathy.
