if you need a a job aramark will do just that. its seasonal and i do not recommend staying for years but to each is own i guess. i knew a few people that have been there for years ten and fifteen years
Living in an growing big city like Houston is gonna have it's pros and cons on a career in a company like Aramark such as
PROS: Good medical benefits (in a medical driven city), A great place to make friends (tons of people in Houston), and a good family oriented environment at Aramark (everyone seemed to care about everyone personally).
CONS: Paygrade is a landlord's best friend (If you not making at least $12/hr highly unlikely to live good in Houston), Transportation in a big city is horrible (Traffic to work is a bust around shift times), Break times are horrible though at Aramark (numerous times its was 15-30 minutes lucky if you got 30 because of the open consumer hubs you work in).
Other than that I loved working for Aramark in Houston.
Medical benefits, Working hours daily, Family oriented.
Living arrangements, Transportation, Short breaks.
Aramark was on contract with Harris county district. My position was dissolved as soon as the contract was completed...if the company had a available position at another location I would still work for this company
A typical day at work consisted of counting money and maintaining good customer service. The coworker I worked with were not very competent. The company allowed anyone to work there. The most enjoyable part of the job was the opportunity to meet so many different people. The hardest part of the job was getting there because the parking lot was 45 minutes away.
Setting up for a day of ball can be very busy. I've learned how important it is to ID any one under 65yrs of age. Management were the best, and my co-workers kept me entertained. The parking wasn't the best but seeing stars made my day.
Working at the baseball park was fun. All I had to do was come in do inventory before and after games, assist customers , make casual conversations with random people, and keep a smile on. the hardest thing about working there is all the manual labor you have to do like lifting those beer crates and all the boxes bending doing inventory.
Free Lunch before work, meeting new people everyday
