Crew Leader (Former Employee), McLean va – October 13, 2014
Pros: paid holidays, my hrs were are early (6am-2pm)
Cons: short breaks, not enough hrs, strict rules
Once I come in in the morning i greet everyone with a smile including employees and managment. I clock in and then began to prep my area of work. Me and my co workers work as a team to provide the best customer service for all customers. Everyday i learn the characterists and differences in every one around me and the culture of them and the people – more... i interact with during the day. My manager makes three stops a day in our work area to make sure everything is going as it should me. The best part of my job is the fact that I am satisfying each and every person that i deal with. It may tend to get busy at times but that just makes me work harder.I wouldnt necessarily say that the job is hard in any way, but sometimes when management is upset they tend to push is to the limit, and it gets a little frustrating knowing you are doing your best. – less
Food Service Manager (Former Employee), Hartford, CT – October 13, 2014
Pros: typical management company
Cons: not as people focus as they want you to believe.
When I first went to work with Sodexho I respected my general manager and the management team worked very well together. When he left, his replacement was not a very good manager and the whole team suffered. In fact all three of us resigned within 6 months but no one seemed to get the message.
Line Server/Barista (Current Employee), Kansas City, MO – October 12, 2014
Its a great job for an college student, very convient but personally I feel that deserve more. I work very hard at what especially at being a college student working Monday thru Thursday from 2-8pm. Its hard at times because I'm always by myself working, thats why I feel like I'm good at what I do because of how I've adapted to that work enviornment. – more... My biggest problem is the way things is ran around the job. Its kind of unorganized, but my supervisor makes everything better well he at least tries. – less
Food Service Worker/Banquet Server (Former Employee), Fredericksburg, VA – October 12, 2014
Worked at a food service location on a college campus. Loved making sandwiches for the students. However, there were times that communication between upper management and the line workers wasn't effective so some policies took time to take effect.

Pros: family company

preparing meals for the kids who attend the college.... i oversee the employees that work with me. i also do the money count and at the end of the night do the deposit for the following day. hardest part of the job is the hours which are very late. co workers are great and we all get along very well. most enjoyable part of the job is taking care of – more... the kids who attend the college who really do depend on us for good food while they are away from home. – less
many new people all the time and many times not enough people to get the job done.
housekeeper (Former Employee), Johnson City, TN – October 10, 2014
Pros: they will always let you do two or three peoples work every night.
Cons: only one break that you sign out for they give you nothing, no second break to rest your feet
There is a constant supply of new supervisors that need to be mentored and educated. The best thing about working for sodexo is the wonderful coworkers that come in to work . unfortunately they do not stay because of a lack of personal care they need to survive and a lack of proper compensation for their hard work . In a hospital setting people should – more... receive more than minimum wage for top quality work . somehow the benefit package doesn't seem to matter seeing how nobody will ever stay long enough to retire unless they are part of the management team. Daily group huddles revolve around important days in History instead of classes to further educate new people how to do their jobs. – less
Good, large company with opportunities world wide.
General Manager of Facilities/Engineering (Current Employee), New Canaan, CT. – October 10, 2014
Good company to work for. Good opportunity to move within the company and grow. Very low job security since we are hired by clients to manage their facilities, anytime that there is a top manager's change for our client, we are at risk.
