Production Cook (Current Employee), Utica, NY – December 3, 2013
Typical day includes preparing foods for different stations and keeping up with cleaning along with proper food storage. I learned while working for Sodexo to operate a cash register more efficiently than I could prior to employment, I learned how to cut produce and meats more efficiently, I learned the pizza hut protocol, and I learned how to better – more... manage my time due to having a full time position for the majority of the time that I have worked for Sodexo. Management did their best to handle every situation that arose during my time there. My coworkers were for the most part supportive, and helpful. When I asked for help, I received advice or guidance when necessary. The hardest part of the job is the stress of dealing with large groups of people in a short amount of time during meals and occasionally between classes. The most enjoyable part of my position is the benefits and the enjoyment I had when a customer was happy and genuinely appreciated the service they received. – less
As a contracted worker, working for clients, it can be difficult to be accepted by employees who do not work for Sodexo, but a manger for Sodexo is expected to manage them. Double paperwork for Sodexo and the client. Overall okay employer.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Denver, CO – November 18, 2013
Pros: my day started early
Cons: working week-ends
I enjoy getting to work very early and preparing for the day. Managing my own time and learning from my mistakes and how I could be better prepared. I really tried to make everything perfect and learned no matter how much you prepare there is always something you can do better.
Lead line server/prep cook (Former Employee), 4501 W.cold spring lane Baltimore MD 21210 – November 16, 2013
Pros: pay/benefits/job location
Cons: breaks/general manager
really flexible hours under staffing employees very tight with money meaning not wanting to get supplies we needed to do our job getting max work out of one worker to avoid hiring more help but it is where I started so its a decent working place
Always busy with plenty of work to get done, which makes the day go by fast!
Food Server, Cashier (Current Employee), McLean, VA – November 15, 2013
Pros: free lunch and breakfast, benefits are great such as healthcare
Cons: short breaks, not enough time to get everything done, they cut hours
Co-workers get along well and management does a good job to make sure everyone does what they are suppose to do. It's always very busy so we have to multitask with various jobs everyday. Were able to have fun while working
Steward (Former Employee), Perham Down – November 14, 2013
Pros: free lunch
In this job I fulfilled the needs of army Sergeants and Officers, taking into attention all detail for presentation, in both physical form of laying tables, etiquette, tone, charisma and presentation, and also in the sense of presentation of self, posture, demeanor, behaviour and conversation. co-workers would change with each shift, or even not having – more... a co-worker, hardest part of the job was functions, most enjoyable was the sensation of knowing you've done a good job. – less
Lead Supervisor II, Papa John's & Freshens (Current Employee), Atlanta, GA – November 12, 2013
Pros: off during winter break (school closed)
Cons: off during winter break (not making any money)
At Sodexo I have learned a lot about myself, business and relationships. Being there for seven years has tauhgt me patience, endurance, sacrifice, and love. There are no hard parts to this job, it's just about time management. The way that a person uses their time will determine how successful they will be in food service. Proper time management is – more... the only way that we will be able to make sure we have everything that we need for each customer who walks through our doors
What I love the most about my job is the people I work with. I see them more than I see my family so they have become like family to me. I would not trade the relationships that have cultivated from this job for anything this world could offer. – less
Caterer (Current Employee), Minot, ND – November 12, 2013
Pros: summers off, long breaks
Cons: benefits discontinued
A fun place to work. Happy people to be around. Management doesn't want to be there. It has been verbally stressed. That is the hardest part of the job. I love helping people have a pleasant experience and I strive to make it a time they would like to repeat.
