Open door policy fun and focused people
Administrative Assistant and Junior Clerk (Former Employee), Kamloops, BCSeptember 20, 2013
Start at 8am, with morning meetings, afterwards we head to our various desks to perform the days work.

I learned to work in a fast paced environment and also to do my best. I also learned how effective team work could be.

Very welcoming management and always address issues raised by employees.

cooperative and fun to work with

Deadlines and fast – more... pace but once you get a hand of it you have fun doing it.

Open door policy and work life balance policy and recognition for a good job. – less

In all, I have choosen not to try and return to this job, because, they were not willing to work with me when I first took off sick,
Dietary Aid (Former Employee), Parry Sound, OntarioSeptember 10, 2013
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

Easy entry-level temps startup job
Dish line Attendant/Busser (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJuly 26, 2013
Pros: meal plan
Cons: temporary shift
Part time workday started at 11 AM earlier for kitchen staff and cashiers. Management was helpful and always stressed courtesy along with "front line first" customer service policy. My co-workers were very friendly, chatted and had their laughs with customers. I talked to the regulars. The most difficult part of the job was keeping up serving customer – more... regulars because of their experience of past events at the cafeteria.They were more understanding at how the building was mapped out and, I managed to learn from them quickly. – less

A Fun Coffee Shop Named Cafe Polo
Cashier (Former Employee), Ottawa Ontario CanadaJune 19, 2013
Pros: being trusted to do our job, without being watch at all times, having great customers that had respect for you, as you for them. no overnights. getting to know your customers by first names.
Cons: being short in stock at times and have to tell my customers that i can not make what they want., no recconition for our hard work.when things broke it took them a long time to be repaired..
Arriving at work to open Cafe shop, Prep 8 thermos of coffee 2 of 4 kinds at the same time open safe and prepare cash register. turn on all electric appliances that needs to heat up. take out all food that is needed to be set out. EX: bread, butter, bagels, 3 kinds. Milk, creamers, sugar packets, fruit basket. Make sure the coolers are up to par. Drinks – more... and juices and beer are in place and is full. Sandwiches, Cold salads, cheese chunks, wraps are full in Cooler.
Wrap fresh muffins,and cookies and set them out. Make sure candy, chocolate bar, chip on rack is full and neat. Make up yogurt desert and jello bowls place in little fridge. Make sure your hot water thermos there was 2 , was ready for tea. Then you were ready to open your door for your customers.So open the doors I did. My day begins serving my customers. I toasted bread, or bagels for breakfast , and for lunch made hot sandwiches, served pizza slices,made specialty sandwiches when asked for by the customers. I learned how to get everything ready and done in a short time and at a study pace. With the management , she let us run the coffee shop on our own, and was their if we needed anything or to place a food or candy or chip order. I had a co work , He had an excellent personality and great team worker. The hardest part of the job was closing up on the afternoon shift so I don't miss catching my bus,and have to pay for a taxi home.The most enjoyable part of the job: Was getting to know my customers and serving them and making them smile and knowing they were pleased with their meals also working with a co work that truly understood what team work was all about. EX; If he was working the morning shift and need it off for something important ,he would ask me to change shifts and when I need something like that he would switch with me. We worked good together at all times. – less
