Food Prep, Cook, Server, Cashier Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ARAMARK in October 2011.
Interview Details I applied for the job through a website (snagajob) and was promptly called 2 days later. I was asked to come in for an interview within a week. I met, and interviewed with, the executive chef. After the interview I was told by the executive chef that I was hired on the spot and would start within a couple of weeks.
Interview Question – There were no questions that were really difficult or unexpected. All the questions were straightforward and the process was fast. I was asked why I wanted to work there, what I expected to accomplish in my time there and how I would react to different situations. Answer Question
Lead Cook Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at ARAMARK in February 2010.
Interview Details The overall interview was of great conception but what you thought would be a great place to work is so much more different than what you were told. During the course of the interview and the walk around the place where currently employed was more than it was cracked up to be. What i assumed would be a great place to work is now a place where I hate to be but have to survive so deal with all the issues and most of all foolishness from the management team. They have what we call their picks and chooses on the people working certain days, hours, and the times instead of using the most qualified person for the job. I think what I was told or shown on the interview is nothing like the workplace that I am working in.
Interview Question – It was more of what I assumed to be a behavior test with some of the most challenging questions on how to handle or how would you handle certain situations. Trying to answer to the best of your ability and being able to handle some of the situations was difficult but a part of everyday living. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Non negotiable. Accepted what was offered and tried to make the best out of it. I think with the years of experience one have the pay should be based on that.
Purchasing Agent Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at ARAMARK in February 2010.
Interview Details The interview process was pretty basic. you get a phone call and sit for the interview. It was a 2 on 1 interview and they asked really basic questions.
Interview Question – there was not a difficult question during the interview Answer Question
Catering Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at ARAMARK in October 2012.
Interview Details It is difficult to get interviewed for management opportunities without already worked for the company previously. Networking is vital to get the nterview. Most of the time, the job is posted very discretely so only those who know about the opportunity will apply, eliminating multiple interviews for management. Minimal re-evaluation after hired.
Interview Question – What are your short term, and long term goals Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Negotiation was difficult. Most managers start off at a base rate
Very Easy Interview
Food Service Worker Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ARAMARK in June 2014.
Interview Details Most unusual interview I ever experienced. Repeatedly discouraged from accepting position during interview. For good reason. Wish I had taken interviewer's advice. Unfortunately, I didn't. After about a week, a co-worker told me to run. I took hers. However, I can't say I wasn't sufficiently warned ahead of time. Live and learn.
Interview Question – Really can't remember any challenging questions. Obviously low expectations. View Answer
Negotiation Details – Cut and dry-no negotiations. Take it or leave it. Waited a long time to take drug test due to a lack of paperwork. Company seemed very disorganized, at least at this location.
