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.
head cook/cashier (Current Employee), East Hartford, CT – October 12, 2014
Pros: family company
I enjoyed my 20 years there, never a hard time, learn a lot and learn new things all the time, everyone got alone, but now I must go and hope to get into something more the cooking, hope to take my skills to a higher level.
Supervisor/Cook (Current Employee), Newburgh, NY – October 10, 2014
Pros: decent pay free meals
Cons: late hours
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.
Cashier (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – October 8, 2014
Because I was a teenager working here I felt as if they got away with under paying us for what we did. I remember all the energy I started off having when I first started working there and none of the energy I had when I left. They took the excitement out of working with there company.
A typical day at work consists of or reservations, supervisor duties as the control and make sure residents are receiving the best service possible. I have learned through out the course of my employment how to be efficiently hard working under a lot of stress. All management is a cooperative team to maintain a fun, positive, and successful work place.
Head Dishwasher/Cashier (Former Employee), Lawrenceville, GA – October 5, 2014
Pros: free food and great co-workers
Cons: things are always broken
The dishroom was def a challenge everyday of week, if you are a lazy person this is not the place to work... but if you like a challenge like myself this is the place for you. The job was very easy but dealing with half eaten food all day is kinda gross but the pay was pretty good. You are def soaked in water by the end of your shift so i hope you have – more... a shirt to change into especially in the winter time. Management was def not the best, our main issue was things would break and it would take them 6 months to fix it and just tell us to deal with it. Feeding over 2000 people a day you cant afford for things to stay broken and no one wants to carry dishes from point a to point b....Best part about it all was we always found a way to make each other laugh – less
