    In addition to the good pay and benefits the company seemed to really care about the happiness of its employees

    For some caterers are not considered part of the regular Monday through Friday 9 to 5 staff the hours tend to get a little hectic at times

    Sometimes there's a problem like there's too many bosses telling too many people too many different things to do

    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!
