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

Pros

Very nice managers, lots of opportunities to gain valuable experience. Everyone saw the value in your work and gave feedback in a constructive manner.

Cons

Some work was dirty. Did a lot of cleaning and heavy lifting. Some of the buildings were old and had bugs that needed to be cleaned often.

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

    Pros

    Co-workers are hard working and enthusiastic - Aramark hires well and then does not take care of people once they are there, so people quit in droves.

    Cons

    Staff was worked to the point of exhaustion; Upper management had no work-life balance so it was hard to say no to requests to work work work; The temptation to get time and a half to work more hours made it hard for employees to say no, especially when managers and directors worked 12+ hour days. Staff was prone to burn-out and serious stress-related health conditions; Company website touting awards, especially 'Most Ethical Companies' award were not consistent with the culture set by upper management at the site I worked.

    Advice to Management

    Take it easy. Quit working staff do death. Set some priorities that are healthy and will retain workers. Update technology. Give staff the tools they need to do their jobs.

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

    Pros

    Opportunity to grow if you're willing to play the political game and be ok with DMs having their little kingdoms. Stand up for what's right and prepare to be ostracized and shut out. If you feel like just doing what you're doing, you can sit stagnant for an entire career.

    Cons

    Absolutely no work life balance. Prepare to bring your phone and laptop with you on vacation. People rolling out new initiatives (largely computer based) barely understand them, let alone are able to teach and troubleshoot.

    Advice to Management

    Let people use the systems being out in place efficiently instead of only getting surface value.
