Head Baker (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 1 December 2017
It was a great place to find consistency and steady work. Unionized and full of benefits for the employee. Some of the management was unorganized and found most of the regular staff knew more than the management, and also did there work. Depending on the unit you are working in, if it is a school you will be laid off for breaks and can claim unemployeement until you return. The company always rehires anyone who was laid off before they look outside.
lunches come out of paycheque
union dues are usually only for the older employees. If you are a fulltimer you must pay union dues.
Cook (Current Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 29 January 2018
Multiple supervisors are verbally abusive, but the job is easy and my work peers are great. There is no chance to advance in this work environment, and my salary did not increase with the minimum wage, which does not make sense because when I was hired it was explained to me that I would be paid more than minimum due to the nature of the work I was doing (working with food meant more pay, labor done for distribution meant more pay). Hours are inconsistent and unreliable.
Discount on food, work peers are great
Management doesn't know how to do their job, no chance to advance within the workplace
CMP is a tough company to work for but with lots of good learning experiences
Op Ex Coordinator, Manager, Analyst (Former Employee) – Goderich, On – 15 September 2017
The most enjoyable part of the job is working with people especially on the front line with the workers. Workers are very open to explaining what is going right what is going wrong and what needs to change to improve production, productivity, efficiency, and safety.
It was a good experience, I worked with several other peers I knew my age and we all worked well together as a unit whenever something had to be done. Just not enough hours and it was also getting difficult at one point to get time off from family matters and other things to make the late night shifts.
Popcorn to go home
Not enough hours, one or two night shifts a week for a couple hours
Barista/Food prep (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 24 October 2016
some family members running the place and always look out for each other before the other employees. I worked quite a few hours there about 50 a week for 4 months ... my first pay for working 100 hours was 337$. i tried to tell them they messed up and instead of correcting it they just gave me a cheque for 80 $ and told me to deal with it.
Associate Trainer (Former Employee) – Toronto Zoo, ON – 25 August 2016
This company provided a very enjoyable work environment that made one enjoy going into work. The work itself was simple but meticulous. The co-workers were friendly and everyone was there to simply get the job done but worked together as a team so that everyone was able to finish on time. Some of the less enjoyable parts of the job was the inconsistent schedule. People were not assigned specific roles on specific days but rather placed their randomly and only given about a couples days notice for their shifts of the next week. This made balancing work and life extremely difficult as one could not plan their life around their work schedule. Also due to the lack of business the Toronto Zoo has been having recently, hours have been getting cut for many of the lower staff. I could not see myself staying for too long as I felt that most of the tasks done between ALL staff was practically the same and therefore you felt very little in terms of progression. Overall it was an enjoyable experience as a part-time job and would be recommended for those who are looking for a summer job or are looking for a career in the industry.
Great staff to work with, management was a little unorganized but still good job and I enjoyed it.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 9 August 2016
I enjoyed working for Compass, the staff were very friendly. Management was alittle unorganized. I didn't mind the hours. I worked 21/7, 8 hour days. I would have like to work more hours. Due to cut backs I got laid off. The way management laid me off was very unprofessional.
Suncor Firebag - worked 10/4 and not enough days in.

over worked,rushed and harassed on daily basis. I learned that I really liked my job cleaning. Company cannot keep good management. Always got along with everyone, however I usually worked alone. Having more and more work piled on to me, Most enjoyable was the clients for which I cleaned for.
Team Member (Current Employee) – 1 Colonel Samuel Smith Park Dr – 7 June 2016
I always enjoy working at Chartwells as we all are really committed towards customer service. Our team is very active and energetic and it becomes an enjoyable job while serving customers.
It is a fast paced environment and speed in order processing is highly demanded along with efficiency. I have even been given compliments on the speed of my work as our cafe is always full of rush. The cash counters are always having a double queue each. The customers always appreciate our effort and are surprised and ask " How do you manage it?".
Always well taken care of any problem or needs at workplace.
Dish Runner (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 2 May 2016
M a prémière journée a été si je le dire vraiment attractive , j'ai appris a travailler en collaboration avec de differente personnes le meme jour . Le management était a la auteur puisque , il étit toujours la pour savoir si nous allions bien et s'il n'y avait pas de difficulté. Mes collaborateurs étaient des femmes et des hommes et étient très sympathiques. L'apect le plus difficile a été de m'abituer a faire plusieurs tache étant arreté. Le pluss agréable était que je prennait du plaisir a rendre l'endroit ou je travaillait toujours propre.
Cashier/Merchandiser (Former Employee) – London, ON – 25 March 2016
A typical day at work would consist of standing behind a till for long periods of time and providing service to the customers during events or shows. I learned the importance of working for and managing your own money, especially as a student. My co-workers were very kind but typically had a negative attitude and complained about not wanting to be there. The hardest part of the job was being yelled at for the pricey food items. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and working at various events.
