  3. "Fast Paced"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Catering Supervisor 

      I worked at Sodexo full-time

      Pros

      This is a great job if you like to be on the move and typically stay away from desk jobs. You can meet a lot of people and network as well.

      Cons

      There can be long hours and expectations from management can get lost in translation when working events offsite.

      Pros

      Fun environment, always exciting, meet aot of new people.

      Cons

      Very long hours, poorly trained staff

      Advice to Management

      A one or two week training will be very beneficial to employees who are salaried managers. It will give the strength and confidence and stability needed to ensure the companys long term success and not have turnover.

          In unit management has poor quality of life .. Long hours and loss of vacation time. The is no support from out of unit management. Manage down really doesn't work so well . Lack of response in unit needs that are delivered to Senior leadership .. Sodexo claims to offer quality of life for employees but its virtually non existent. Long term employees are not valued and not heard...

          Advice to Management

          Visit a unit , See what being in operations is about. Listen to your employees and address concerns as opposed to giving a survey that rarely results in any change. You are losing good talented dedicated team members , both hourly and in unit management .. Pay attention to the real value you have .. people that make it happen daily
