Alright
Food Service Attendant (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB18 August 2018
I am quite happy with the schedule flexibility but that might just be in my location with my manager. But that's all there is to it. The bosses above my manager clearly put pressure on her and in turn gets passed to us in the form of extra work.
Pros
Free lunches, Pay is decent for what you do.
Cons
What your job description says doesn't exactly match what you do.

I love outdoors and Aramark has jobs in romote areas, which was fine for me. Enjoyed my employment with them.
Second cook (Former Employee) –  Cochrane, ON8 August 2018
Aramark is a fun and rewarding company to work for. Its fun after work, we can go exercise at the gym , or go lounge around at the lounge and chat with friends. Management is always there for us and very helpful. They train you and get you ready for your position. They have TV's in each bedroom. and free WiFi and access to phones , if need be. It's home away from home.
Pros
Having a diploma in the culinary field is very important and proper training
Cons
luck of passion food and no skills, and not willling to learn

Good job for beginners, though can be very exhausting.
Stand Attendant (Former Employee) –  Rogers Center, ON11 July 2018
Management was very easy to talk to. Work is exhausting and because it's at Rogers centre, baseball games run for HOURS with the rush never ending at times. Breaks were given at irregular times (15-30min break after 5-6 hours into the shift). Pay is pretty good as it is usually above minimum. food is discounted (50%) not free. Shifts are irregular - if you are scheduled 5:30-11:30, sometimes you stay 2hours after. Great tips though especially if smart serve certified.
Pros
fun people and good tips
Cons
long irregular hours
