    Advice to Management

    its big company with different branches around the state, however, they need to look for the talented people in their units, please start to listen to the new ideas they need to contact more with media and be in the filed like other companies such as Amazon, FedEx, Apple, and Google. they need leaders, not more managers.

  5. "Racism towards staff of color"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 
      Doesn't Recommend

      I worked at Chartwells Higher Education Dining Services full-time

      Pros

      Great effort to create events around foods and holidays. Great effort to create food variety for students.

      Cons

      At Bard College at Simon's Rock, other employees discriminate against employees of color and the issue is dismissed by management as "a joke." Even students of color who work in the kitchen recognize that there is a problem that is not addressed. But there is zero effort to collect information and address the problem, as a good manager is actually required to do by law. Chartwells' HR doesn't think there is a problem...

      Advice to Management

      As a member of the Simon's Rock community, I am disappointed that Chartwells is allowed to act in this manner in a college that prides itself for being an inclusive community. Simon's Rock needs a new dining hall meal provider that is in greater accordance with the principles the college says it promotes. It is shameful to have a day of training on diversity (today) to discuss "diversity concepts" at the college while...
