I have been working at Aramark full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Advanced very quickly
Worked in multiple fields; expanded knowledge
Company car; with service and gas. (Even for non-work related trips!)
Assisted in tuition when returning to school
Worked my way up from the bottom to Regional manager w/o degree.
Great benefits and perks (free laptop, cell phone, ect)
Awesome pay for someone with no degree (110k+/year)

Cons

Work long hours sometimes
"On call" 24/7
Had 1 rude boss (out of many)
Hard work sometimes (nothing an overweight 45 year old can't do!)

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work. It's hard to find a company that takes care of its employees like Aramark does! We all appreciate that y'all understand that a happy work base creates more long term profits!

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

    Pros

    I learned how to think fast, learn fast, and make things work along the way. This job definitely helped me with communication skills ad I have better people skills.

    Cons

    This job was pretty demanding for a concession stand job. The pay was way low for the amount of work we were doing, we were paid not a penny over minimum wage. I had jobs that were way less demanding and paid me at least a dollar higher then minimum wage. Also, breaks are never guaranteed. Don't be surprised if your standing while on "lunch break".
