Awful hours, over critical co-workers
Night Shift Chef (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONMay 8, 2014
At 10pm, I would: setup the line, make a special, brew coffee, and start prep for overnight lunch. I would then serve customers food, process through cash, and wash all dishes/close kitchen; and with barely a break, all night, until 6am.

I learned that I dislike overnight shifts.

Management was non-existent.

I would work alone, and get rude notes – more... from the day shift about, "how much my life must suck", and nitpicking about insignificant errors from my shift.

Hardest part: overnight shift.

I enjoyed the customers, and independence. – less

An excellent place for any Executive Chef to work. They provide you with all the tools and you take onus of all that you do.
Executive Chef (Current Employee), TorontoApril 24, 2014
Pros: free food on duty. benefits. pension plan. growth and salary increments yearly.
Cons: pay for parking.
I had a team put in place - they were the 'backbone' that I stood on. Coming in to work every day was a pleasure - knowing that whatever you have taught this staff will be put to use.

I would meet with all of them - sometimes separately - check on the previous days logs and records - check production sheets for the day - Check with Catering and their – more... team to see that all is running smoothly. Touch base with the Sous Chef and the kitchen. Get behind the Ovens when necessary.

Working with all types of cultures and nationalities, it was not just interesting to work alongside them, it was really fun. We were unionized and the staff was really well tempered and dependable.

I learned a lot about management and people skills working with a diversified group.

The hardest part of the job would have to be when a reprimand was necessary. I would have to do a 'write-up' and an action for correction.

Praising the team for a job well done would have to be the best part of the job. – less

Pros: opportunity

No questions ARAMARK had given me the opportunity to where I am today. They allow me to grow, learned, trained many aspects in the business. The only downside to this job is that seasonal closures

Enjoyable workplace for a fan of music.
Seasonal Bartender/Cashier at Molson Amphitheatre (Former Employee), Toronto, ONApril 13, 2014
Pros: was able to hear some of my favourite bands while working.
Cons: not always guaranteed a busy work night.
Working at Molson Amphitheater for ten years was quiet the experience. Throughout the many years at Aramark there was many changes with management and employees. I felt very secure in my position and worked one-on-one with one of the supervisors for the majority of my stay within the company. The job was very simple itself; ensuring customers had the – more... best experience possible. I really enjoyed serving customers and seeing them enjoy themselves while at a concert. – less

Grill cook, cashier, Tim Hortons baker (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABApril 9, 2014
Pros: half off lunches
Cons: by the end of the year i started to lose hours because we were closed for summer
A typical day at work consisted of prepping food in the morning then cooking and serving customers throughout the day, with regular clean up then cleaning and sanitizing my work area at the end of the day. I learned more about the people that I served more than the actual work place, because of my previous experience in the food industry. I enjoyed – more... everyone that I worked with. I was mostly on my own through out the day because I was the only grill cook and I had my own station. The hardest part of my day would have been the lunch rush because I was constantly on the go, although I wouldn't really consider it hard. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and learning about their cultures. Because it was a collage I meet a lot of new people from different backgrounds and different stories. – less

Server (Current Employee), Vancouver, BCMarch 30, 2014
Pros: we did have 1/2 price food at one point in building, i never took breaks so i don't know what happened the last few years
I felt that people were not trained in the position that they were hired for. They were just thrown into the job position and kind of got training as they went. Our last manager since I have worked there in the nineteen years was one of the best. This manager was approachable and didn't hesitate to talk to customers when needed. Never made us feel intimidated – more... or uncomfortable when we needed some advice or just to talk. Always tried to be a team player even though it was management. – less

Expiditer (Current Employee), Vancouver, BCMarch 27, 2014
Pros: safe, fun working environment
Cons: never having the necessary tools to perform job effectively
I have enjoyed the last 7 years working for Aramark and in that time have formed many friendships along the way. Having been working with the same people for this length of time makes it feel more like a family and that also gets extended to the managers and office staff! The only downside to working there was that it wasn't full time steady employment – more... and during the Summer months had to live within a budget. – less

Warehouse Assistant (Former Employee), Thunder Bay, OntarioMarch 26, 2014
This was the best job and employer I've ever had.

Sadly the Corrections division in Ontario's contract expired.

All Ontario Corrections staff for Aramark were laid off.

Miss this job.

Andre Bisallon was an excellent District Manager.

Would gladly work for this company again.

Prep Cook (Former Employee), Oromocto, NBMarch 20, 2014
Pros: got free food

I learned how to cut, cook, and serve all kinds of foods. Interacted with a steady flow of people daily, and learned customer service skills. I also had the WHMIS training before this job so i learned sanitary issues and chemical hazards.
