    From the Gulf of Mexico to the Arctic Ocean and from the Pacific Coast to the Atlantic, Sodexo provides Quality of Life Services that support the needs of our clients in the Energy & Resources market segments, reinforcing client operations in both onshore and offshore environments.


    Sodexo Energy and Resources is seeking a Food Operations Manager 2 to provide oversight at a Chevron training facility in Lafayette, Louisiana.  Reporting directly to an off-site General Manager, this operations manager will have oversight of four non-union, Sodexo-paid, hourly employees (two food service employees and two janitorial employees) and will typically work a Monday through Friday schedule with a 5:00 am start time (depending on training events at the facility, this start time may be earlier).

    Food service management at this unit will involve hands-on management of breakfast, lunch and dinner for groups of employees who come to the training facility.  Some hands-on cooking, along with the Senior Cook, will be a necessity at times to meet the needs of the business.  Custodial/Janitorial management will involve the management of the two full-time employees who clean the training rooms, offices and bunk rooms for those training participants who need to stay overnight at the training facility. 


    This position will provide an excellent platform for growth within Sodexo!


    Successful candidates will demonstrate experience, success and proficiency in the following areas:  


    • Professional and polished written and verbal communication who can successfully market our services
