Lovely team to work with. Made great life long friends. I was able to study around my job as well as care for my children. Very family friendly. I learned a lot of new skills whilst at aramark and I was able to work in different areas to extend my knowledge. Up to date training on site. Reasonable pay to meet living costs.

There was a very relaxed working environment for the team which was great. However, there was not very good allocation of shifts and this meant not regular income at all.

Managers tend to be comprehensive and teach you as much as necessary. All your colleagues integrate you since moment one, giving you all the tips you'll need to develop your skills.

Our day to day was normally featured by an informal team meeting. Teamwork and coordination are key here, especially in the kitchen/cooking section.
Pros
Relaxed labour environment and Flexibility
Cons
Demanding position (kitchen)

Poor. Not fun. Used staff as and when. Didn’t pay very well. If the boss was having a good day then it was ok but if the boss was having a bad day you would know about it

Great management and great chance to.career advance with a global company. The pay is decent and the job can be challenging but rewarding. The training offered to assist with career development is advanced but yet will definitely stand you in good stead for your career.

The social aspect of the job helped me enjoy my time there as the vast majority of my colleagues were my age which made the work environment very social and comfortable.

Generally a good company to work for. Not enough personal time spent with individuals. Little personalisation. Too busy for its own good in some instances. Informative roadshows. Over complex training.
Pros
Food Drink allowance
Cons
Unssuportive at times

If you were happy to run around like a lap dog for the Restaurant manager then you were fine, but if you dared to have an opinion then you were deemed to be difficult.

Minimum wage. Upper management do not care about front of house staff and you never get any thanks from them. All they are interested in is the GP. Never get any back up from above the manager always negatives never any positives . No chance for promotion. Best part of job is the staff I work with on site
