Custodian (Former Employee) – Prince George, BC – 1 December 2017
A typical day at work was repetitive. I learned a lot about different ways to clean different messes. I had very little interaction with management. I worked the afternoon hours away from the main building. The hardest part of the job was being overworked and underpaid and under appreciated by my coworkers. The most enjoyable part of the job was when I had customers come up and tell me what an amazing job I do and that they notice how hard I work.
Got to meet a lot of interesting people from all over the world who came to study here.
Low wage for the amount of work expected to be done

Dishwasher (Current Employee) – Oakville, ON – 15 October 2017
Many problems with management and supervisors. I would report issues about my supervisor and nothing was ever done about it. Manager is extremely unorganized and not very lenient or understanding. Coworkers were very friendly, the executive chef on the other hand is a great leader, friendly, helpful, and understanding.
Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Fort St. John, BC – 22 September 2017
When I got my first job I had just got out of high school to be a dishwasher for Sodexo. The job was tough, for the first month I struggled getting used to so many dishes and learning better ways to improve my system but soon enough I started to rapidly improve and became employee of the month my second month working I became skilled and organized to the point I could finish my job hours early and help other staff or include extra cleaning in my shift. The camp was nice and the people were awesome Sodexo did a really good job and remain number one in rank of best employers!

First Cook (Current Employee) – Gillam, MB – 23 June 2017
A typical day at work consisted of getting together with my team and making a plan for the days production and activities, from there we would execute and work together to ensure each task was competed.I learned from everyone I worked with no matter their position in the kitchen/company and the management team worked very hard to ensure that our work environment was a great and professional place to be. The hardest part of the job for me was being away from my wife and two young boys and my most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with and learned from as well as the amazing team ethic we all had.
