Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Waterloo, ON9 January 2018
This company does not provide their employees with the opportunity for advancement.
Employees are taken advantage of with low pay, while employees who are new or have little responsibility are making a wage similar to those who have worked with the company for a number of years, and have more authority and responsibility.

Interesting culture.
Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB9 December 2017
Initially received excellent support from management. It was impressive and encouraging. A new manager caused that culture to change drastically. What initially was a joyful place to work became painful.

Dietary Aide (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 December 2017
It is a warm environment, for the time I was with them, I found that the work load was too much for only one person. You need to be able to sacrifice your "Life" for this job.
Pros

You don’t want to work here...
Retail Associate (Former Employee) –  Oshawa, ON28 November 2017
Wasted a year bending over backwards for a company who ends up belittling its employees. Not to mention also not taking any steps in reprimanding employees when it comes to the bullying and harassment policy
Management needs to step up. Something in this company NEEDS to change
Pros
None
Cons
bullying, unorganized management

Cook/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON20 November 2017
Typical day there is that u get there go to your cash register and count the money that’s in there then. We open an hour and a half before game time and just sell food. Management sucks. Always unorganized and very rude. It’s good for a first time job that’s it.

Is a fun workplace but lots of drama
Server (Current Employee) –  Kamloops, BC16 November 2017
It’s a very fun place to work at if you have minimal work experience and need more. Depends on where you work but the place I work is not very organized with hours therefore I will have to text a boss to ask when I work because they don’t organize that before hand which is pretty unprofessional
Pros
Free food
Cons
Drama

Ex employee at compass group
It doesnt matter (Former Employee) –  Olds alberta9 November 2017
Would not recommend this place to my worst enemy. Management there are very rude ignorant and unprofessional women to work for. They make you feel like you are a piece of dog poo under their shoe. They dont give proper training, and you get accused of theft. all they do is harp at you. Not a friendly place to work! NO matter how hard you work you are NEVER appreciated.
The kitchen is disgusting.The food is disgusting and they have had several cases of reported food poisioning.
They need NEW management first then start building a team. Until then the problems will never be solved.
Pros
None
Cons
Extra hours worked and not getting paid for.

Co-workers are great, management is a tad pompous
Runner (Current Employee) –  Prince George, BC8 November 2017

. if you were uncomfortable doing something, someone else would gladly pick up your slack.
Pros
great food made in a great kitchen
Cons
looooong hours
