Food Service Director (Current Employee) – Hayward, CA – 20 October 2013
Ran day to Day operations in the CSUEB system. Overall Management group was not supported from high top levels. Staffing was always pressed for highest productivity output without proper training and development.
Associate Manager (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 11 October 2017
A great place to work, in providing Food Services at MUN. Learned many aspects of institutional Food Services. Excellent Leadership. Most enjoyable part is meeting and interacting with students at MUN, who will become our future leaders.
Porter (Current Employee) – Sudbury, ON – 10 October 2017
Was a good work experience, got to cook and work with food. The faculty was also great as well. It did have its ups and downs but overall the food was great most days and sometimes it wasn't according to some students.
Housekeeping Staff (Current Employee) – Alberta – 9 October 2017
Horrible pace to work. They only pay minimum and reluctantly increase when minimum wage goes up, yet expect maximum amount of work. Management acts like babysitters always micromanaging and getting angry or writing you up if they feel you're not working hard/fast enough. Will put the work of two-three people on your shoulders before lifting a finger to help you themselves. Employs tons of foreigners who barely speak English because they're easily taken advantage of.
Management sucks, minimum wage, maximum work expected, no bonuses or perks.
Food & Beverage Director (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 4 October 2017
I enjoyed working for Aramark. The support structure was very good, and I was able to manage with creativity and freedom. Aramark is a large corporation that deals with food services for all types of establishments.

Server (Current Employee) – Rogers Center, ON – 19 September 2017
I only wish it was full time. I have worked here 9 seasons and i love it. I would love more events in the winter. The people who would here have worked here years too. Aramark at the Rogers Center is a place where they are flexible with hours so no one ever leaves.
I had lots of fun, even as an evening supervisor! There was lots to learn and many different ways for advancement. The manger was very caring and understanding and made sure his employees were happy working here.
Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – Wilfred Laurier University – 2 September 2017
Uncaring management. Miserable day-to-day atmosphere. Buck passing, and behind-covering. All those old ladies being being driven like galley slaves. "Elder abuse" is what they themselves called working there. Made to do dangerous heavy lifting, and endure hot, smoky conditions due to exhaust systems not functioning. Favouritism and bullying, gossiping and back stabbing abound. No benefits, wage is low, unable to survive while working this job. Will never forget all the egg yolk on the "clean" plates. I thought it would be great to work at the university but was sadly mistaken.
Cashier / Team Member (Current Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 26 August 2017
Great company but treated like a commodity. Working on campus meant that employees had the same time off during holidays as the school but during slower times of the year, workers were cut and work load became too much for 1 or 2 people to handle during busy rushes
