Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Aramark (Tallahassee, FL (US)).

Interview

The catering director approached me and it took them almost 6 months to make a decision about hiring me at my expected salary. They offered me a significantly lower salary at first, which I declined and eventually they offered me what I asked for.

    Interview

    When I first applied, I got a response from the Director of Catering within about two weeks. Then came in for first round interviews with just the Director. She asked general questions and the interview lasted around half an hour. I got a call back for second round interviews and this time with the Director of Catering and the Catering Manager which lasted around 30 minutes also.

    Catering Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in West Palm Beach, FL (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aramark (West Palm Beach, FL (US)) in October 2012.

    Interview

    It is difficult to get interviewed for management opportunities without already worked for the company previously. Networking is vital to get the nterview. Most of the time, the job is posted very discretely so only those who know about the opportunity will apply, eliminating multiple interviews for management. Minimal re-evaluation after hired.

    Catering Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aramark in January 2010.

    Interview

    Interview was organised by an agency and I was interviewed by a HR person first, who turned out to be very unprofessional, unwelcoming and opinionated. When I asked about the main challenge for the company, she replied that their main problem is that their workforce was too diverse!

    At the end of the interview it was clear that she and I couldn't see eye to eye so I was never invited to a second interview.
