Catering Supervisor (Former Employee), Dover – September 9, 2013
Pros: own boss most of the time
Cons: hot work in summer
Days at work were varied sometimes preparing food or ordering stock, taking in deliveries or serving in the shop. This job taught me a lot about working with all types of people from age15 to60 with different backgrounds and to make decisions myself as we only saw management about once a week.I had great fun working here everyone was easy to get along – more... with and the students were a real eyeopener. – less
Cons: poor pay/benifits/hours/seasonal in many cases
Aramark basically operates with one thing in mind...making money. This often leads to lowend food quality. Staff moral is very low and service shows as alot of staff feel they are under paid and over worked. The managers and higher ups dont show respect towards their staff or compensate them for there dedication and hard work
Cashier (Former Employee), Shaw Barlow Canada – March 22, 2013
Pros: excellent meal benefits
Cons: standing for long hours
A typical day of work for me is when I successfully fulfilled my duties and responsibilities with passion and dedication to my work especially dealing with customers & co-workers. I didn't find any hardest part of my job because I see myself loving what I'm doing in every seconds,hours of working. That is how I value work like giving value to yourself – more... as a person. And the most enjoyable part of my job is when I make every person/customer smile in a simple way of conversation. I personally love dealing with them and build raport even the most cranky customers that I had. – less
General Laborer (Former Employee), Morinville, AB – March 3, 2013
Pros: good pay
Cons: long days
I would walk into the warehouse and begin to organize for the day. Had to do repairs to living units, mostly electrical. Labour was tough and long days, but the pay was worth it. The co-workers were your average folk for Alberta and the management was well kept.

Cashier/Barista (Former Employee), Kamloops, BC – January 31, 2013
A typical day at work included running the cash register and making drinks along with some general cleaning duties. I learned to make a variety of beverages as well as some great customer service skills. Management could definitely have been improved but my co-workers were great and easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job was probably learning – more... to make all of the drinks and doing so in a timely fashion. The most enjoyable part of the job was definitely the people that I worked with. It was never a dull moment. – less

Cleaner (Former Employee), Waterville NS – January 16, 2013
Pros: good coworkers, day shift 7-3.
Cons: bosses, pay, bad coworkers, the runs that had to be done.
-A normal work day for me was i would clean 12 bathrooms and 7 break rooms in 8 hours and it would be 15 mins a bathroom and 15 mins a break room. - I learned that all the rumors about Aramark managers are true. they treat people like they are not important. -The management was the worst that i have ever worked for. They are a very high turn over rate – more... for a reason. She would jold your job above your head because she said many time "I can replace you at any time because i want people I like and not people will not talk back, get hurt or any other crazy things" -Some of my co-workers were awesome people I got along with alot of them, i would hang out with them after work. some co-workers i couldn't stand because they were so full of them self. -Hardest part of my job was when the toilets would blow up/back up and i had to clean up feces off the walls, ceiling, doors, mirrors. When i told my boss i refused to clean up people feces she told me I had to do it or i was fired on the spot. -The most enjoy part of my job was some of the people. – less
