I have been working at Sodexo part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

This job was really good to me while I was in college. It worked around my schedule so that I would never become too busy with school and work. The management experience was really helpful for finding a career. The company really seemed to care about its Student Managers, as we were given quarterly trainings in helpful areas.

Cons

As a part time manager, the full timers tend to overlook some serious problems. The student manager is a liaison between its diverse student employee base and upper management. If there was moral problem with the student staff (university students getting paid minimal wage to work in a dish room), management more often than not ignored my warnings, leading to a drastic turnover rate with our new hires. In the long run, we ran into many problems with always having a very green staff.

Advice to Management

Listen to your student managers. They hear much more feedback about the job than you.

    Benefits and vacation are great. Uniforms and meals are free.

    There is a lot of favoritism and one-sided solutions within the company at this location.

    Upper management needs to take a good look at the lower management and how they deal with and communicate among themselves and the other employees.
