Server (Current Employee) – Prince George, BC – 8 March 2017
Long hard hours but very friendly people. Constantly changing environment. Like learning new things and meeting new people on a daily basis. They are flexible with there scheduling and worked around my schooling. They put family first.
Master Chef (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 18 November 2016
I worked for three years for Compass Group, as a Supervisor of the Kitchen. I worked with people who were either skilled at their job or had no training to be there. As part of my job I was to train new employees to their station, I also was to keep the kitchen in an even run, never was I ever given any credit for my service or was I offered advancement or given a raise in pay.
Instead I was given two awards, paper certificates, for a job well done and two months later I was laid off, without cause.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 7 October 2016
My job at Compass Group was a newly created position, and no one really knew what to do with me. Customer volume demanded an extra management body on site to help with efficiency and training. My manager was ill suited for his position and was unable to teach me much at all. The company had people in customer service positions with now experience and with a poor attitude towards learning the craft.
Lots of room for advancement
Poor management team, unrealistic expectations, poor training regimen
Food Service Worker (Current Employee) – British Columbia – 23 September 2016
I have never worked for a company who cares so little for their employees. They do not honor or appreciate hard work from anyone, they have no idea how to treat staff. this company is all about the numbers. The management who sit in their offices benefit while the people actually doing the work get absolutely nothing. Most of the time the management team just sits in the back and pushes papers, never mind that they are still part of the team and should be helping where necessary. The food service industry is like a machine, it's either well oiled and runs smoothly or you get that one kink that brings it all crashing down. This is what working for Compas Canada is like. Good luck and stay away!
Long hours, low pay, no appreciation, treated as replaceable all the time
First Cook (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 18 September 2016
I start my day early, making soups for the day. Then begin dinner prep. By 430 pm dinner is ready for the first group of night shift clients. Service is 4 hours and we batch cook throughout the entire service so food is always fresh & hot. During service we are prepping for next days dinner as well. I have worked with many people during my years with Compass Group and am always learning new cooking techniques and recipes. My management team is great and very supportive. My co-workers are all team players and we always help one another out. The toughest part of the job is being away from home for such long stretches. I love to cook so getting paid for something I love to do is a bonus.
cook/general help (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 16 September 2016
compass is one of the worst companies I have ever worked for. I was sworn at twice by our food service director..we were told to do online line training at home on our own time which took approx. 18hrs and we were only compensated 2hrs. then they promote only the ones they like. This is a company I wish I had never worked with they do not give any opp to advance. If you value all your hard work in the culinary business DO NOT ever work for compass you will regret it.
