    Competitive Market

    Catering Manager (Former Employee) West Palm Beach, FL (US)

    ProsThere are multiple opportunities for career growth with the numerous accounts in Higher Education and Business Dining. Very diverse opportunities to branch off, including Catering, Residential, and Retail.

    ConsOften you must relocate to gain promotion. Management does not do enough to provide resources to the career growth - you must go out on your own to receive notification. Management often does poor job evaluating prospects, leaving middle management to pick up the slack

    Advice to Senior ManagementNetwork with as many other supervisor and managers from other accounts. Having resources at different accounts opens up opportunities, and will get you noticed much more than the work you put in

    ProsYou will learn some valuable skills working at ARAMARK and you will get plenty of hours. These are skills you will keep with you for the rest of your life. Can be a fun environment with the right employees.
