Executive Chef (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON31 January 2018
Working with Aramark as a chef for 5+ years, it's pretty scheduled but depending on which type of unit you are in the hours can change week to week. I would work with Aramark again but not at a unit level

Poor poor management!!!
Cleaner (Current Employee) –  Joffre29 January 2018
The girls I work with are simply amazing. The management is horrible. They will not listen to their staff about issues, the management threatens to fire you if you don’t do them dirty little favours. If you book a holiday chances are you will get marked as absent for the whole time you are away.
Pros
Good wages good hours

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON22 January 2018
Because they have so many options for places to work, you can acquire a wide range of skills, from making pizzas, to catering a wedding. This is another place that the employees all have a very friendly, close relationship.

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB11 January 2018
Was okay to work at . I had a better work experience when I was at Red River. once management changed and staff started leaving due to contract ending in June 2017, attitudes and hostility began. Once I transferred to concordia Cafe it became even worse so I resigned from my employment.

Excellent Coworkers, Horrible managment
Cashier (Former Employee) –  St. Catharines, ON10 January 2018
As soon as a shift starts you automatically have to clean up after the previous shift. Kitchen is incredibly dirty. Managers don't care enough to help out when issues arise. LOTS of favoritism from management, and hardly ever promote from within despite having workers from opening day. Head office also seems to brush issues off as nothing when brought to their attention. Only enjoyable part is the other employees, they're very welcoming to new people and more than welcome to help if you're struggling.
Pros
Discounted meals, fun coworkers
Cons
Short staffed, bad managers, favoritism

COOK 1 (Former Employee) –  Kelowna, BC3 January 2018
Aramark was a busy place to work, they have good employees and management. You get to meet a lot of cool people. The only thing they could improve on is the amount of staff they have. (not enough)

Experience at Aramark
Cashier/ Delivery/ Floater (Former Employee) –  Haliax, NS19 December 2017
It is overall a really easy going job experience, I noticed problems with the management as I wasn't getting paid according to my work. The punching machine barely works. It is a really friendly workplace environment with helping Co workers. Work shift schedules are quite hard to cope up with as a part timer as I had to work day and night throughout the week.
Pros
Working at my university
Cons
Management problems

Banquet Captain (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB19 December 2017
When they fired and hired new supervisors and assistant manager, the transition wasn't easy. Especially when they hired more and more lazy staff, I was exhausted each time after work.
