Fun work place working as a team to build a better experience
Starbucks Barista, Burnaby SFU (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 7 April 2016
Full time employee as a barista in a fast paced and high stress store. I learned how communication is key when working as a team. I used to supervise the closing shifts full time for around a year. Management was difficult to deal with, there was no room for advancement and they never listened or addressed their employees concerns.
Upper management and their lack of concern for employees
Chef Superivor (Former Employee) – Prince George, BC – 24 March 2016
Lack of training that was promised upon hire and and no support from staff or management. Allowed buliies to continue working and the victim quit. There is no consistent work ethics policy and procedure are only being followed by those that the company wants to try get rid of.
No adequate training or consistent training for all staff lack of respect from staff
Housekeeper at a Long Term Living Facility (Current Employee) – Oakville, ON – 5 March 2016
The pay is always short, the hours are complete bs. They tell you it's a part time job, it's actually a casual. They have the absolute worst management and are simply disorganized. I do not recommend working for this company.
All lies, no management, pay is wrong wveyr pay cheque.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 4 February 2016
Operations Centre Agent - Marquise in behalf of YVR
- Stepping stone into the aviation industry; - Exposure to the background day-to-day operations of an International Airport; - Great networking opportunity; - Working with like-minded young professionals; - Mid-range salary (better than most entry positions in the industry).
- Everyone is your boss (Compass Canada, Marquise, YVR, Airlines, Contractors, Tenants...etc); - Customer Service role heavy with complaints and repeating inquiries being a daily occurrence; - Minimal advancement opportunity within Marquise and Compass Canada that is aviation related; - Being a contractor means restricted advancement opportunity into the airport authority; - The role is continuously given more responsibilities, grows complex, and requirements for the job are always added. But the salary is not changed to match the additional workload and liability.
Assistant Lead Cook (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 30 January 2016
If you love Hamilton and love the Hamilton Tiger Cats this place is probably the best place to work! Of course you work in the concessions but the atmosphere in the stadium is absolutely incredible. The people I worked with were amazing and all the staff is super friendly. There was a lot of disorganization with making sure we had food and scheduling. The hours were bad unless you were well liked and knew the management so you could come in and work during the week but if not you had the one day a week schedule. Overall the place was just so much fun and I highly recommend it to anybody who is looking for their first job or looking for some extra cash!
Retail Associate/Server (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 9 December 2015
A typical day usually would start with a meeting, going over a lot of training provided. While getting everyone involved in carefully reading every guideline. I learned that teamwork is needed in order to survive in this workplace setting. Management is good, they are very at tentative. They have good emotional intelligence. The hardest part of the job is getting the speed down, hustling to serve every customer while maintaining an upbeat attitude and great customer service. The most enjoyable part of the part of the job would have to be the employee appreciation day, getting to know your co-workers at a different level.
Concession Worker (Former Employee) – Moose Jaw, SK – 7 December 2015
Typically an evening job with the occasional day shift. A professional attire is a must along with great personable skills. The staff and management were incredible to work with, making the shifts fly by with ease. Stressful moments occurred when there was over ordering and the cooks could only do so much at a time. The food was great and customers were very rarely dissatisfied. Memorization was key.
Great people to work with, listening to the concerts
Cafeteria Worker (Former Employee) – Stoney Creek, ON – 27 November 2015
My time at Compass group was good. The people I worked with were friendly and the shifts were great for balancing home and work life. However the rate of pay was low when you consider the amount of work expected. I learned how to use my time effectively to accomplish all my required work. On going training was great and the support from management was good. The hardest part of my job was getting everything done, but as I said before strengthen my ability to time management. Although my co workers were friendly they was a lot of gossip between staff but it does teach you the ability to get along well with other and put your head down and just do your job.
