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

    Pros

    Good pay for salaried management. Great for hourly employees almost unlimited overtime. Some hourly employees exceed manager salary by the time they get over time.

    Cons

    Work short handed a lot. Work seven days before an off day. Constant battle between state employees and Aramark employees .Because the state has contracted Aramark, the correctional officers whom formerly performed our duties are very hostile. The hostility is manifested both openly and covertly. Aramark (ACS) has taken a lot of heat lately for it's poor sanitation practices. Yet the state fails to provide water hot enough to wash or sanitize dishes. The pipes in the wall are so rotten, that if they turned the water up to the proper temperature it would cause major renovation costs to the state run facility. We have to boil water in a struggle to wash dishes to serve 2800 in mates three meals per day. The maintenance staff (state) provides not preventative maintenance. Some un repaired equipment without seals have become home to pests to embed themselves in. The walls are infested with rodents, and roaches, and Aramark has had the contract for less than a year. Who was there first the rodents or Aramark?

    Advice to Management

    Have a job fair of massive proportions. Work with the state to expedite the results of background checks. Work with medical professionals to expedite drug test and TB tests. Give management the time and the people to train properly to avoid the sanitation and filth that has occurred recently,. And let the state do it's part by providing hot water and maintenance on it's food service equipment which will discourage the harboring and infestation of pests.
