Was a very good company to work for where, everyone was a team players. Enjoy being with poeple. I've learned everyone has a different personality and how to deal each person for who they are. I started at the bottom of the company and worked my way up. I never asked an associate to do something I hadn,t already done. Hardest part of my job ws the two – more... years I traveled for the company as a trouble shooter. I was in management for many years and decided to get out of the business.

Typical workday was productive and constructive. Worked within an education facility. Learned basics in culinary arts. Learned updated cash register techniques. The most difficult task was unloading the trucks, because of safety issues. I enjoyed working along side the students and university staff. Excellent team player.
Manager is fun to work with, atmosphere is friendly and fun.

Cons: hard to advance within the company
Fast paced environment manger is fun to work with, other co-workers are fun and friendly. Hardest part of the job is making product being served presentable and taste good coming from a pre-processed site. The work schedule allows me to be home with my children after school hours.
Fast Pace yet relaxed university dining atmosphere
Food Service Worker (Current Employee), San Marcos, TX – November 27, 2012
Show up at eleven am. to take orders or jump on the register at Einstein Bros. Bagels. I'll Check the coffee and replace items which have receded. Some Days I'll work the register at the convenient store downstairs or the pizza hut. Seldom do I fill in at the Grill or Freshens but there have been occurrences where I will have to learn a new station. – more... I'll head home around seven o'clock pm. which gives me a few hours of freedom before bed. Compensation is only eight dollars an hour which I am not happy with due to the understanding that our facility produces thousands of dollars in revenue every single day however it would be quite beneficial to purchase stocks in the company. – less
Line Cook (Former Employee), Pueblo, CO – November 13, 2012
Pros: free meal
My typical day was when I got there I prepped every thing for my line. clean my line and set it up. as i went through my line i would observe how much the students would order a certain object and prep accordingly. the worst part of that job was the lack of help for me and other coworkers.
On everyday base I deal with about 400 customer that I have gain a friend relationship with.

Catering Assistant (Former Employee), Devon – September 18, 2012
I liked working at my job, but when we had new management come and interfere,as they thought they knew better wrong, they made it worse, perhaps if they had better training it would be ok. Got on fine with fellow workers it was just management.Chartwells didn't like to pay overtime. If anything went wrong, there policy was to take notes then tell you – more... it could lead to a disciplinary. – less
Nice place to work especially when you have young children
