    OK company with decent benefits. Lots of room for advancement, however you have to be in with the right people

    I worked at Sodexo part-time

    Pros

    Really good atmosphere, they really care about the students that work for them and make a point to work around students' schedules. They know our education came first to us, and since there were so many employees to work with, taking days off for academic reasons was never a problem.

    Cons

    Can be boring/tedious, especially on slower days when less students come into the dining halls to eat. I was only allowed to work 20 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    None really, keep being positive and a joy to be around!


  10. "Not too bad"

    I worked at Sodexo part-time

    Pros

    The pay was decent for a part time job

    Cons

    It is a very big company so most of the decisions comes from the top. The local branches have very little influence over what goes on in the corporate sector.
