Food Service Director Interview

Food Service Director

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ARAMARK in January 2014.

Interview Details Had a phone screening then an on site interview with the gm another phone screening and then an interview with the dm. And finally another phone interview with hr. Whole process took about a month.
Both interviews were relaxed and pretty standard questions were asked. They both stressed the atmosphere and nature of the job and asked more than once if I was sure I would be able to handle the job.

Interview Question – Usual questions based on prior job experience. Second interview was more informal and we just talked about situations and how to over come them.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – During the interview they asked what I was looking for I told them and that's what they offered

Food Service Director Interview

Food Service Director

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ARAMARK in September 2010.

Interview Details Inital interview several weeks after applying on line. Inital interview with an Aramark recuiter via phone. Next spoke with district manager then another director via phone. Went for onsite interview where director from another unit and two supervisory employees did a behavioral interview. If one of the individuals does not like you the outcome will not be good.The interview seemed to go well but I question the validity of a behavior interview. With the staff interviewing you they get decide if they want you as a boss. Not a good process.
