No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Meal plan of free food, pretty good starting wage of $9.00 and automatic raise after you work for awhile, my manager was extremely sweet and friendly, relaxed environment.

Cons

Apathetic employees, very low opinion from students at the University, (but more so because of the choice of Sodexo in comparison to others.)

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

    Pros

    Free food during breaks, people are respectful and friendly, and it always smells good.

    Cons

    It can be a bit dangerous around lot of large-scale kitchen equipment. Managers always want you to worker over time, and it's not ideal for a student who prioritizes studying.

    Advice to Management

    Be more considerate of how tired your part time student employees can get! Be nice.

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

    Pros

    A good corporate environment, and some good planning

    Cons

    Chef's that refuse to cook (just thaw and serve), Chef's that refuse to push to create a great program, poor marketing, and poor recipe/menu ideas. Ohh, and I received the smallest pay increase I have ever had in my entire life (since age 17)...a wopping $750/yr increase...that is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people just becuase they already work for the company. I was told by many recruiters that I would not be considered for a position because I was not a "current" employee, that they always give current employees priority, and that my skills and experience were far greater than any of the other applicates due to this. I had to apply for a position that "current employees would not be interested in", just to get my foot in the door.
