A great place to work, in my experience
Dishwasher (Former Employee), Halifax, NSDecember 3, 2013
I worked part time with them as a dishwasher/utilities. They scheduled my hours for the times that were most convenient for me to work while going to high school. I always got two breaks during the work day, unlike at some places I've worked before. Always got paid my due wages on payday. Not much to say for the job culture, but it was nice to be able – more... sit down and have lunch with co-workers.

An all around good employer. – less

Supervisor (Current Employee), Toronto, ONOctober 24, 2013
Pros: vacation pay
Cons: steeling of time
I learned just one thing at Aramark that there is no recognition for hard work and honesty.
Management is another name of politics and hypocrisy
The hardest part of the job is when you don't get any appreciation for your efforts but you'll be held for minor things.

Working with Aramark Canda has been the best job I have ever had.
Food Service Worker Hostess (Current Employee), New Glasgow, NSOctober 6, 2013
Pros: lunch discounts and free coffee, tea. and each year there is a free babaque, corn boil, chilli day.
Cons: bulling and sexual talk, and hurting other co-workers feelings and nothing is being done about it.
very busy each and every day, no time for standing around there is always something to do. I have learned that no matter where you work there are things over looked and bully's that make you feel bad almost every day. The management doesn't always know what is happening and if they do they don't always do anything to stop it. My co-workers think they – more... know more than you and are always acting like a boss rather than a co-worker. The hardest part of the job is taking the abuse of the the other co-workers. The most enjoyable part is meeting the patients and get to know their likes and dislikes. – less

Pros: friendly work place, everyone did a job, working as a team member.
I really enjoyed working with aramark, but in the begining of 2013, I was suffering from high blood presure, and consent pain in my right arm and wrist... after seeing doctors, and being told that I had to come off work until I had surgery, aramark desided to terminate my employment with them, as I wasnt available for them. I then went on EI sick bennifits – more... for 15 weeks, have had my surgery, doing very well, and would now like to re enter the work force. – less
