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

Pros

Comprehensive health benefits after one month of working, friendly people.

Cons

You don't feel like you're working for Aramark, you feel like you're working for the building where you go to work. (Food service in my experience)

Advice to Management

Find a way of having employees at food service locations experience more of a team environment. There was no way for me to get to know the people I worked with outside voluntary socializing.

    Pros

    Good use of vacation hours, staff always cares for and makes connects with the students. The production program in place now is great as an idea.

    Cons

    Poor implementation of the new production program; treats all employees almost like they are back in elementary school filling in paper work but fails to make sure they understand what and why they are filling this paper work in.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just shove new paper work and programs you think will work, leave for 6+ months without explaining and expect it to be perfect when you return for an audit.

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

    Pros

    Company is financially stable and there are unlimited opportunites if you are able to relocate.

    Cons

    No clear and sustainable direction and too many changes every 3 months. It seems as though all the decisions have been knee jerk to save their (upper management) jobs and will not be sustainable for the long term. Managers are constantly threatned to perform or they will be terminated.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful how you treat your employees. Step out of the ivory tower and come out to see how things are really run now instead of when you used to run it.
