I worked at Aramark full-time

Pros

Tons of nice people working there. Salary was ok. Benefits were good.

Cons

Too many VPs with conflicting agendas. Can't figure out a solid sales / account management strategy. Sales commission targets were unlikely to ever be met due to lack of clarity around accout owners. Lots of turnover.

Advice to Management

Separate the sales / account management roles and responsibilities.

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

    Pros

    I want to say that I met some very friendly people working for Aramark (not necessarily the staff or management).

    Cons

    I was a supervisor at one of their HE centers. I was not on salary, I was hourly. Over my summer break I made contact with my food service director within the company, she told me to come in to work and I told her I was out of town for summer leave. She then threatened to fire me if I didn't come in to work the following weekend. I told her that i couldn't and that I would be back on the expected date. Two weeks later Human resources called me to tell me that I'm being fired and I lost my job.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you Aramark for wasting my time, using me, and discharging me in a manner that was despicable, and unjust.

    To say the least I was furious, and even after 4 years to the date I wake up this morning in a heated hatred for your company.
