Managing Supervisor (Former Employee) – Calgary – 29 April 2012
The management here is incompetent. Totally insecure and dysfunctional. Will blame everything that goes wrong on the front-line staff so they can save their pathetic jobs and last another year to loot the company.
Easily the worst food-service provider to work for. If you are working for them, I recommend you take your resume across town. Your skills are needed elsewhere, and other companies will pay much better and treat you much better.
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.
A nice summer job that introduced me to the basics of being a busboy
Busboy/Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 June 2017
It was a cool experience to be a part of Sodexo for the 2015 Pan Am Games. I was able to help many work stations in need due to the flexibility of the work floor. Not only was i able to gain experience as a busboy, but i also learned work for porters and servers
STOCK MANAGER (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 21 June 2017
from this job, I was taught a lot of new skills on how to flourish my appetite for cooking homemade meals, how to cut bulk meats plus, I even learned how to cook exotic foods from all around the world with great staff to support me.
Salaried staff are treated like gold, hourly are expendible
Housekeeping (Current Employee) – Ontario – 14 June 2017
How they grew so much I will never know. Hourly employees are just a commodity. In the few years I have been there staff turnover and firings are worst than a fast food place. Regional manager has no idea what really goes on. Regional manager favourite was promoted but it is kept a secret from staff.(position was never posted). No budget to properly run the department because management gets bonuses for being under budget. Instead of a well oiled multi national I feel like I'm working at a dysfunctional mom and pop outfit. Stay away from Sodexo.

Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 5 May 2017
I worked for Sodexo for 8 months. Interview went great, but the offer of $21.5/hr was really disappointing; especially with the absence of overtime. I was making $43,000 a year and management was making upwards of $90,000 a year plus bonus. All management did was forward the requests they get from the client to maintenance. Sure they did some clerical work, but really; they did nothing. Our maintenance team was a team of 2. We had 3 managers, a secretary and an accountant. Managers were so proud of cutting any extra pay through overtime ever when the client was charged overtime for projects we did during regular work hours which meant jamming so much work into the work week. Managers told me that since we are on the ground, we need to fight their battles on the ground with the client. It was a very bad working environment.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Caronport, SK – 4 May 2017
I really enjoyed the safety structure with this company, employees customers, client as well as management are always their first concern. Compliance visits although they can be stressful for some kept order and organization.
its a good place to work overall. you get to interact with alot of different people and cultures. usually work with good co-workers but there can be a few lazy ones who have seniority. it is unionized but union reps. arent always very good. other than that ts a good place.

Housekeeping Manager (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 1 February 2017
In 10 years with the company, my initial enthusiasm and pride in working for the company has dropped considerably. I am still confused as to why I was let go. Upper management emphasized that it wasn't because of performance. 10 years with the company, all for nothing.
