    I worked at Sodexo USA as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Once the routine was set, it became clear what was expected of me.

    Cons

    The official "training" lasted only a few minutes, and it wasn't until another coworker took it upon herself to train me that I got the flow of things. My supervisor was also not very helpful in organizing or dealing with stressful situations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job at training and recruiting experienced workers.

    Pros

    Working for corporate accounts allows me to go to school in the evenings.

    Cons

    You need to be on your game at all times to give great customer service!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much busy work for the laborer such as paperwork, the paperwork becomes arbitrary after awhile no one really checks it... that's why you have management they're getting "paid" to do the busy work the laborer produces, and management overseas production!
