Former Employee - Food Service Worker in Indiana, PA

Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Aramark part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Employment for international students on campus, which is pretty limited. But to get the job itself is pretty hard because there are tons of people wanting to work, and it mostly depends on luck more than anything else,

Cons

Micromanaging, lots of yelling from the managers. I worked for 12 hours straight without any rest and my supervisors regularly yelled at me for no apparent reason.

Advice to Management

Treat your workers well, and review your supervisors regularly

    I worked at Aramark part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked at a stadium, had fun co-workers, people were excited for game days, decent pay for part time work. There was some down time before the games, but also some big rushes where you were extremely busy.

    Cons

    Management was mostly absent and rarely fulfilled request. They continually understaffed events. It can be tiring to be on your feet all day after a long week of full time work. Glad I have moved on, but it was good pay at the time.

    Advice to Management

    I realize the bottom line is important, but being cheap often affects employee turnover and morale/ customer service in the long run. Staff events properly.

    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
