    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Chartwells Higher Education Dining Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working in public school food services has great hours.

    Cons

    It's a grind. Make low quality food for uninterested students at a profit. That means hiring minimum wage workers to produce low quality product. Management has no interest in talent development. They aim for mediocrity and to meet the lowest requirements of their fat government contract. They don't care about the schools or the kids.

    Advice to Management

    It's the 21st century. If your bottom line is only $$ you are going to fail.

    I worked at Chartwells Higher Education Dining Services part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The best thing about chartwells is the teamwork nature of the catering team. While working its was more like working with family. The free food that came along with the catering events never hurt either.

    Cons

    They give very few hours as a catering assistant. Sometimes I went up to 3 weeks with a single hour of work.

    Advice to Management

    Try to spread the hours evenly or to advertise the job as an on call job and not a part time so that the potential employees are not deceived.

    Hours fit in around children

    Advice to Management

    Pay your staff the wage they deserve for all their hard work, then they'd have a reason to stay.
