I got to meet a lot of people. The work environment and its fellow employees were very friendly and helpful. It's easy to handle fast-paced and stressful situations at events when you have a team who are supportive and easy-going.
I was very excited to find what was a such a good fit. Promised career advancement throughout my employment and this is no longer the case. They do not implement the systems in place to create a stable work community.
Worked for aramark for 4 years, saw very little compensation for the amount of work I was doing. In the beginning it was okay because I was just a food service worker but at the end as a manager/lead I was overworked and underpaid and under appreciated. The company doesn't care about the front line workers.
Day to day was not terrible, we were usually understaffed but the other associates made work worth it. Associates were told they would receive raises then the raises were not followed through. Employees usually underpaid and over worked.
Aramark is a good company to work for.
The people they put in management positions need some work. If you are not willing to fall to hire ups feet you are not treated the best. It's always been a struggle with people above you, and if you aren't in their cliques you're out.
if you are looking for a part-time job or just looking for a first time job this is definitely the place. i don't recommend making a career here. there is a reason why they work in cafeterias and concession stands. do yourself a favor and go to college, study a useful major.
I feel aramark is a nice company, with both pros and cons. I worked at a Starbucks in the boise state student union Building, which was run through aramark. I loved my co workers and the managers were understanding.
Free lunches at other food places in the food court
Aramark at BSU is a very fun job because you are constantly surrounded by motivated individuals, but the rewards are few. They pay poorly and are completely inconsiderate when it comes to labor. This falls back on Aramark completely. Being a world wide company, all employees are literally a number to them. The staff is great, but the corporation itself sends demands that are almost impossible to adhere to. Labor is constantly fluctuating, making it impossible to budget for a specific location on campus, or personal finances. Went from 40 hours a week to 23 overnight.
I had 7 managers and had no idea who was in charge
Hours would go from over 40 one week to 8 on another
Employees were miserable and did not get along with each other.
The kitchen staff was awesome the cooks and chefs were great. everyone on the catering side was awful
