“When coming back to Sodexo, my decision was simple. I worked for the competition and saw how the operation ran. I knew coming back to Sodexo would be a sound decision, as far as benefits and the ability to advance within the company were concerned.

For others considering Sodexo, just remember to hold true to yourself and never compromise. Be flexible, open-minded and have patience.”

“I came back to Sodexo to make a difference in the lives of those who matter most to me. I missed having daily guest interaction in the healthcare environment with our patients and other healthcare employees. I also missed the work/life balance I was able to have while previously working for Sodexo.

I'd recommend Sodexo to anyone looking to grow as a manager. Sodexo has tremendous tools for networking, training and career development. Also, motivated employees are rewarded generously through benefit and vacation packages. Sodexo allows me to do what I love most (cook great meals), while having plenty of time to enjoy with my family.”

I was unable to relocate when we lost an account, so I moved to another food service company. But I always kept in contact with my Sodexo Manager. That proved to be valuable. There was an opportunity to improve an account. That was the perfect challenge for me. Now that I’m back with Sodexo I have the resources that are essential to a successful career such as training, the proper tools, and good communication. I also thrive on the autonomy that we get at Sodexo – an important element that was missing from my previous employer.

Ever since I moved to the United States in 2003, I made the decision to return to work Sodexo. Previously, I had worked for Sodexo Brazil for 10 years - experiencing the strong commitment of developing our people. Once in the U.S., I would check the Career Center on a regular basis for job opportunities in my area. My diligence paid off. Now I can apply my talent for retail management in an environment that makes me feel motivated by meeting interesting people and building relationships with customers and my staff. I feel like I make a contribution every day. It is the good feeling of being at home. I feel very fortunate that I have been able to get back on track in my career at Sodexo.

Early in my career I had exposure to Sodexo through Wood Company. When an incredible offer came along to make a move it was too tempting to resist. Subsequently the facility was sold and went self op. Thankfully I had maintained professional relationships with many individuals at Sodexo. That led me back to a career where I knew that I had lots of room to grow and numerous career opportunities. The support and resources are unmatched. Now, I can enjoy endless domestic and international opportunities while doing something that I love – making meals special for every resident.

Leaving Sodexo was a difficult decision. After all, I was proud to be a part of what I considered an industry-leading team. But I made the move to what was supposed to be the opportunity of a lifetime: I became a Sodexo vendor – a relationship that proved quite valuable as I worked with my replacement to ease the transition. Now I’m back, stronger than ever for my experience and proud that I took the chance. What I once might have considered hokey clichés – integrity, accountability, respect and loyalty – turned out to be strong attributes that I learned as part of the Sodexo culture and took with me. I’m proud to be a part of our industry-leading team once again.

When I first joined Sodexo I was excited about joining a company that had such superb benefits, support from a great team of RDs, a respect for work/life balance, and a position only 30 minutes from my home. But when the contract was terminated and I found myself with a position nearly 2 hours from home. That proved to be too much of a strain on me and my family. But over time, I found that many companies do not place a high premium on work/life balance and that I truly love the variety and interaction with people offered by a Sodexo dietitian career. And that's what I rediscovered as I rejoined to the Sodexo team.

After over 7 years with Sodexo, I was disappointed to learn that our contract wasn't renewed and there were no local opportunities for me. I've always loved working for Sodexo and have been looking for an opportunity to return. I always felt like an important part of the team and not just "another manager." The support, encouragement and collaboration aren't always there with other companies. I'm so glad I kept in touch with people from Sodexo and was able to re-join the team. Even before I started back, I felt like I was part of the company again.
