What people are saying about Aramark
5 months ago
Philadelphia area lawyers - I’m trying to get a sense of the range of in house salaries in the area (looking at total comp - salary, bonus, and equity). In particular I’d be curious to know about Comcast, Vanguard, Aramark, FMC, and AmerisourceBergen. All input is appreciated. Thank you!

The company pays great compared to others in the industry and the company is constantly expanding so there are many growth opportunities
Need more training and networking opportunities. Sometimes has a flavor of the month feel. The company should be more harmonious across business segments.

The pay: until you realize that you are making less than minimum wage after factoring in your never ending hours
Company Culture - They want you to be a tool Work/Life Balance - none Senior Leadership - Grossly Incompetent and Robotic HR - Completely unethical7

Pay was great as the more you over charged your customers the more they would pay you.
Trying to justify a price increase every 2 months to the customers along with getting everyone on the team to bill for loss and ruin that most of the time was not there.... But if we didn’t hit our numbers weekly we would get our teeth kicked in. Turn over is horrific as people are waking up and not willing to keep doing all the unethical things that were asked of us daily. Life now that Aramark is behind me is so much better. It feels great to be able to sleep at night and not have to worry how your going to have to screw someone over to make a dollar. (Yes this unethical style is taught from the top down.) I know I sound negative and bitter that is not the case at all. I spent a long time at this company and they need to wake up and make this that great company it once was!!!3Aramark Response5y

The pay was rather good compared to other jobs in the industry although there were no bonuses of any kind.
Aramark is all about kickbacks and all roads lead back to that; every vendor is mandated by Aramark standard and usually charge much more than you could get anywhere else so that the company (or higher up) gets their graft. They also charge for clients to use Aramark exclusive programs that do little to benefit the client. As a Manager you spend an unbelievable amount of time proving that you're doing your job as opposed to actually doing it.1

Was a great on campus job for the weekends. Work was minimal and the pay was better than most other simple food service jobs.
The other employees could be incredibly juvenile. In addition, my boss at my location on Wofford College's campus was not very reliable.

The pay was fantastic had overtime every week so my take home check was amazing.
The fluctuation in the schedule sucked at first being a jumper for the routes when someone took time off of called in sick but got used to that real fast. The thing I hated the most was management would push you to sell more product to customers but you couldn’t even get enough product to deliver to the customers that are already paying for the service. Mats always wet and stinky of mildew and god knows what. Then the company would charge the customer for fake ruin because they have quotas they must hit. Just a shame place ripping off their customer.2

The only things are that you work 5 days a week and have insurance. The pay is ok but you really have to cheat the customers to make real good money
They demand very unethical methods of doing business with the customers and they require very long hours at times. Everything now a days is strictly about the numbers and quotas for the very short term with no concern for building long term relationships with the customers. I've worked there for well over 15 years and the company is definitely going down hill and in a hurry. Plus they give the customers 5-7 price increases a year.4

Pay is somewhat decent but inly because we are union workers and negotiated a favorable contract.
Only a job. Don't make it a career.

Good pay and for at least 3 days a week you have all the flexibility you need. No nights or weekends.
It's all about sales numbers. If you don't sell something, which must equal out to $100/rental per week you will not make it. The only chance you have of signing new business is if someone hates your competition and wants to go with someone else. Unfortunately, most do a good job of keeping their customers happy and/or under contract at all times. Customers contracts are usually in 3-5 year terms so if someone just renewed in the last year or two, forget about them. The real decision is to ask how long everyone has been on the sales team, who has been able to retire from a career in sales, what is the average tenure of a salesperson.1
