Fast paced

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Fast paced on your toes. Not enough staff at times. Shifts can be a bit short notice. Staff are nice and friendly. You can get nice food if working functions.

Good for Casual Work

Worked with Aramark for events at Croke Park through the summer. Supervisor roles were given to anybody (most were not suited). Concerts brought on a lot of pressure but it was overall okay to work for short-term.

Hard work all the time and no thanks for it, catering manager very negative, focuses on things not done and never praise for a job well done

No praise for work done, always negative remarks no matter how good work was done. Always tied to time. Management not very approachable at times. No praise for work done, focus more on the negative. Manager unapproachable. As long as work was done management didn't care about us.

Pros

None

Cons

No thanks for a job well done.

Rude and unprofessional

The management are rude and unprofessional. You are overworked and can go a week with no days off as they are so understaffed. High turnover of staff. The managers will talk badly about you to other members of staff and demoralise you infront of others. You are treated with zero respect whatsoever.

Pros

Free lunches

Cons

Long hours, management, can go days with no days off

No Future

The worse place to work, No Recognition or Acknowledgement of any sort, If you Got into the Upper Tier, it's okay but if you end up in lower stage don't think you will ever get be promoted, and there is Culture of Nationality exist, which is wide spread. I can write a Book on it, How a company can Aquair Contracts, with out any Regards to their Employees. Shame on you.

Pros

No Pros

Cons

Worse place

Toxic environment with small minded leadership

Toxic atmosphere with micros managing small minded leadership. CEO has zero respect or consideration for staff and this filters down to department heads. No work life balance. No benefits. Absolute refusal on hybrid working after 18 months of proving it works. CEO demanded and forced all employees back to the office with 24hrs notice with no consideration for childcare or family obligations, against government guidelines and before the guided dates. The work is fine as I enjoy what I do. But who it’s done for is the issue. 2+ years here and after week 2 I regretted the change. Avoid.

Pros

None. Basic 20 days holidays. Zero benefits

Cons

Long hours. No benefits. No staff events. Nothing.

Did not work for this company unless you're desperate.

11 years of service, never received a pay increase. All facility companies are the same. Yet Aramark have the absolute cheek "We dream, we do", as there logo.Their in it for themselves, exploiting - greed of the almighty dollar. Employee appreciation day - your awarded with a coffee and bun. You sit through a video from the CEO. Your reminded how special it is, like its an honor a blessing, how privileged we are that he took time out.

Pros

My bosses were generally pleasant to work for.

Cons

Everything about the company, it is a CON.

Good and Bad Days

All give no take

Worked 7 years with Aramark in Crumlin Hospital. Too much work for basic wage. Unsafe equipment, not enough staff for how busy it was. No management skills, didn't care, rosters we're always late. I was dropped down to 1 day a week without any communication with myself until I confronted the mangers, was told it was for new staff to train even though I was with company 5 years they all passed the blame.

Pros

When I left Aramark.

Cons

To many

Can be fun place to work sometime,

The issue is basically no incentive and the way and manner people are treated and talked to by management is unacceptable in any workplace environment

Stressful

This job is very easy when you know what you're trained well and know what you're doing, it can be very beneficial. A typical day is very stressful when understaffed but the people who are staff are amazing

Fun, relaxed work environment where all staff were friendly.

I was told about a potential job opening by a fellow student who I was in school with. She let me know it wasn't stressful and still allowed loads of time in the evenings for school work.

Management / Company

Poor communication / training and development of management team. No induction for new team members. Poor ongoing support. Favouritisim with key staff. Would not recommend it as a place for education and training.
