No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Aramark full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

it is mostly a day time position.....summers are off....

Cons

some people are promoted because of friendship.....not because they are good at what they do....or know how to run a kitchen....

the uniforms are awful....ugly...hot....uncomfortable to wear.....
you have to ware a hat.....its hot....ugly.....makes you look stupid....
the tops are made for men...and don't fit women well......you get the sleeves caught on things....

Advice to Management

learn to listen to your customers......i this case it is college age kids......they don't want fancy food...just good food.....

get down off your high horse.....just because your college educated does NOT mean you know everything......some good and knowledgeable people work here.....who have done this a time or two.....and they know a thing or two.....that you don't know.....if you keep pushing them aside....they will find work elsewhere.....

pay them well........
give them their mass layoff number to file for unemployment so they don't have to wait 4 or 5 weeks for their first check......after all ..... you have that number ALREADY...this happens every summer

    I have been working at Aramark full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Daytime hours, no nights or weekends decent bennies

    Cons

    they could be a bit more generous with the "merit" raises. 1.5% increase a year doesn't come close to covering the increase cost of gas, insurance, interest rates, utilities .....

    Advice to Management

    appreciate your basic kitchen crews more, its their hard work that earns you Your bonuses.

    Pros

    The fact that I get to work on campus and my previous supervisor was very understanding so my hours were very flexible.

    Cons

    There are times when you can get around six hours of work a week and others where you can get around fifty. Hours are too inconsistent.

    Advice to Management

    The supervisors are too inconsiderate of their employees and should at least look up some hours for them in other departments.
