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

    Pros

    Application process was easy-interview was easy. Very pleasant coworkers-fast paced work environment. I learned alot in the short time I worked there.

    Cons

    You need to be aware that there are alot of call-ins, you should expect to jump in wherever they throw you. They told me they didn't do background check-but a month later made me do one-which I still question as unfair.

    Advice to Management

    They need to be transparent about background checks and hours-if you hire someone for 40 hours-you give them full-time hours. I rarely ever got 32 hours a week. I also don't see why so much paper mail is sent out-some of it could be delivered electronically. Waste of good trees.
