    Pros

    Great people to work with very dedicated, my manager was very flexible with my schedule.

    Cons

    Raises were not even standard of living raises, if you can negotiate a bonus into your contract do so up front.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jury is still out on the CEO and where he is taking the company, supposed to be in the people business but management is not forthcoming to managers and others below them.

    Former Employee - Student Worker in Waco, TX (US)

    I worked at ARAMARK

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with such a diverse group of individuals in both age and race. I was a part-time college student working to make money and I did not enjoy that it was a minimum wage job.

    Cons

    It was unclear the levels of management. As a student worker, I was basically on the bottom and could report to anyone else. But to as the tiers of management and where specific individuals fell, I was unsure.

    I have been working at ARAMARK

    Pros

    Ability to work in an exciting atmosphere with fun people. Experience a vast amount of entertainment events while working. Overtime usually available.

    Cons

    Advancement depends on local accounts in your area. If company is losing accounts, there are no positions to step up to. Glass ceiling is a brick wall most times.
