    Former Employee - Shipper Receiver

    I worked at ARAMARK full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to stand out by working hard, opportunities for job change constant, easy workload, scheduling. For a no brainer job it's great.

    Cons

    Pay, not paying raise when job position advanced, not holding people accountable, not giving the moral for people to want to achieve, not enough employee feedback. Overall lack of care and disorganization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employ passionate people and pay better so you get a better standard of employee.

    Former Employee - Kitchen Prep Cook in Victoria, BC

    I worked at ARAMARK full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Consistent schedule although advertised as 40 hours per week,but not always the case.

    Cons

    Had to pay for own parking and meal deductions(even though the time required to start work had to have your own car,as no bus at that time) A lot of bad staff relations and one rule for one and not for another. Weak leadership which contributed to poor work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up your management. Have staff evaluations and procedures that are followed.
