Primary Store Clerk (Former Employee), Kapuskasing, ON – November 14, 2014
Pros: all your food and logdeing were free
Cons: being away from family
When I worked at the store It was a lot of fun as I only had one boss and he would just let me do my own thing. But when I had a question my boss was always willing to give me a helping hand to make sure that I understood. The bosses that I had are great to work for because they were always willing to teach me everything there was to know about the – more... store. from the ordering to the stocking of the store. The hardest part of the job really didn't have anything to do with the work. It had a lot to do with the fact that you are away from home. But on the same since the best part of the job was that I got to meet a lot of different kind of people. – less
Line Cook (Current Employee), Guelph, ON – October 19, 2014
Pros: variety. everyday provides a new challenge.
Cons: wages need to be improved
I've had the ability to learn and expand my self, which I took the initiative to do.
Sodexo is a global matrix company, many things get lost in the cracks and go unnoticed or maybe people notice, but do not care. A person in a management position should be a true leader, and unfortunately this is not always the case. I don't feel that people try their – more... hardest because it is easy to hide in such a large company. I enjoy my job butt the Chef makes it hard to come to work sometimes. I get frustrated because I see other people doing the bare minimum and getting by with not repercussions
They need to have a better control over staff members breaks Smokers seem to get 3X more breaks then the employees that do not smoke. – less
Its been a very long ride learning the ropes, always someone to correct your way of doing things. Its up at 5am and down at 9pm every day for 28 days straight. I have recieved some much in the way of how to do things and the proper tools to accomplish it. I have really been apart of improving the ergonomics here at the this site. I have enjoyed every – more... minute and will continue to try my best. – less
Office Coordinator/Admin Assistant (Current Employee), Sodexo Air Canada- Mississauga – June 2, 2014
Pros: excellent boss- management. job opportunity for career advancement, very approachable and friendly bosses.
There is a lot of opportunity for career advancement, if you work hard for it, opportunities are there. This company employs people with disabilities, they are very compassionate and supportive. One of the things you will consider before applying for a posted position. That fact goes to show that Sodexo is very fair company indeed.
But what – more... I really love about working for this company aside from the great opportunity of learning and advancement is that I think I have the best of best boss I ever had in my entire career life. Young but super smart gentleman, SUPPORTIVE, very down to earth, approachable, open minded, understanding....he is simply just an AMAZING boss. I have no doubt that my other co-workers would say things about him likewise.
The Management of this Unit is Spectacular. Very friendly and accomodating. It almost feel like a real family. Not putting things into exaggeration. I have never seen a very humble management such as this one. Everybody supportive and helpful from the GM to Finance Manager to the Operations Managers, everyone is just willing to lend a helping hand. It is a TEAM you would want to be a part of for real.
Cons: Super Busy, demanding job. It is nice to be very busy,there is nothing wrong with that. But if you are kind of workaholic person like other many you tend to compromise your break (lunch or personal priorities) just to make sure you are keeping up or you accomplish most of the piled up assignment/job. Well I guess I would prefer being very busy though than working in very slow paced environment. – less
Kitchen hand (Current Employee), Pilbara – March 26, 2014
Cons: not much social life
I love my job in the kitchen here on site, the people are freindly an everyone works well as a team. I really enjoy my days on site because there is always something for me to do which makes the day go fast. The hardest part of my job would be the first night on night shift but after that everything runs real smoothly.
