Satisfactory Review
Lead Hand/Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB2 August 2017
Ok overall. Fast paced and demanding work most of the time. Some ability to advance within the company but limited. Upsides were the union and benefits offered.

There's lots of work to be done...
Porter (Former Employee) –  New Westminster, BC1 August 2017
But job security is low on the list, and there's no room for advancement. Industry demand has placed an emphasis on low wages, no benefits and the result is almost no job security. By the time you should be getting a raise, you're likely to find yourself looking for another job for one reason or another.

The people are great, but the employers, not so much.
Pros
Lots of exercise, flexible duties, on-site job training including WHMIS
Cons
Almost zero job advancement/stability, low wages

stressful workplace
Cleaner (Former Employee) –  Ottawa5 May 2017
A typical day at work was a little bit stressful but I had some good colleagues so we were helping each other. I learned to clean the dining hall, toilet. The most enjoyable part of the job was to meet people all the time,the hardest part was when they ask you to do a task and you are not done yet, they interrupt you with another one and after that they will be shouting. It was like we are not HUMANS

The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to interact with a lot of great people...both customers and fellow employees. It is a busy store the hardest part is being efficient when ringing in customers.

Advancement is minimal, if at all.
CATERING SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON1 May 2017
You need to be friends(or someone's partner), with senior management to move forward with this company. It is a company that would rather pay minimum wage to employees with no experience rather than focus on ser4vice excellence.
I did not learn anything here. On the contrary. I trained all of the employees under my supervision.
It was a very frustrating place to work.

Great co-workers and free food, but poor management.
Kitchen Staff (Former Employee) –  London, ON25 April 2017
The only negative thing I had with this workplace was dealing with the management. They very rarely actually worked, instead they paraded around making everyone else miserable. Decreasing chances of any productivity in the workplace, they frequently brought their problems from outside of work to the workplace. It created a horribly awkward workplace when the "management" became upset because they were not getting what they wanted outside of work the way they wanted...
Pros
Free food all the time! They basically assign you a food plan, allowing you one meal and several drinks and snacks daily!
Cons
Poor management.

Good Company Stuck in Office Politics
Marketing Manager, Student Engagement (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON8 April 2017
Compass Canada is an amazing organization. The only problem with my experience was that the company is broken up into too many micro-departments that had different bench marks and goals. Naturally when these departments worked together their sometimes opposing agendas would lead to conflict and friction when it came to meeting timelines based on the effects of the conflict. A structure has to be put in place to create mutual beneficial relationships between the different businesses within the company to avoid such conflict.
Pros
Free Food, Good Benefits, Good Vacation Time
Cons
Unfinished hierarchical structure
