Safe place to work. Hard to be sacked.

Management caring only about themselves and their bonuses. Not appreciating devoted staff. Zero private and confidential policy. Not listening to advices given by long term employees.

Pros

None

Flexibility of working hours if needed.

You get told in the interview your wage is the same each month well that isn鈥檛 the case you could have a difference of 拢50 if your work hard or if you don鈥檛 do anything you get treated exactly the same management have bad attitudes and can be childish

Pros

Awful

From the start I was expected to do two peoples jobs and the workload just kept increasing.When a new manager came in they were promoted because they were friends with someone higher up in the company and had no idea what they were doing.This manager then promoted other people who were lazy but of the same ethnic background despite them not pulling there weight or being qualified.Would never work for Aramark again.

Pros

Some nice people to work with

Cons

Everything else, racist, sexist, jobs for the boys culture

I love Aramark

I love working for aramark it's always a good environment. The only thing that doesn't keep me there is the pay and being off with no pay. It's a seasonal job if you don't work at the right location

Pros

Great environment and fun place

Cons

Pay and being off so much

Worse place I have worked

Worse place I have worked general manager changes the rules almost every week to suite herself. Was a great place to work when I first started but now management are to busy looking at the little things instead of the big picture. The portion size that is served to military personnel I would give to a child.

Pros

Non

Cons

Stand and spend hours cooking then they expect you to pay for your meals after you have cooked it.

Back stabbing environment.

Worked for Aramark for 25 years and was disgusted at the jobs for the boys attitude which developed over the years. Unless you had an former Army career you were an outcast. Glad to be away.

Pros

Flexible working

Cons

Clannish environment

Blame culture

Higher management blamed lower level management who then blame ground level workers. If your face fits you might be ok. Very stressful and no consideration of work/life balance. Managers didn't manage!

Pros

None

Cons

Back stabbing, no work life balance, no benefits
