Food Service Worker (Former Employee), St. Catharines, ONOctober 21, 2013
Pros: pay was good. enjoyed working with public
Cons: on-call, not enough hours, never knew when or if working
I enjoyed working for Sodexo I was at the Brock Universitie Food Services. I met alot of nice people. The problem was it was on-call basis only and would be that way for years. Many employees had been there 5 years and were still on-call. You could go weeks with no calls and the following week work 4 shifts but never knew where or if you were going – more... to work until they called. That is why I left there when I got the job at Niagara College with less pay but regular hours. – less

A safe place to eat
Server/Customer Service (Former Employee), Lethbridge, ABJuly 9, 2013
Pros: free lunchs; learn how to make simple food as pizza and sandwich
Cons: not much space for promotion
My major job covers a variety of activities, such as customer services, inventory management and kitchen assistant. Usually in the morning I will check if there is enough stock for Easy to Go Food and decide how many to make. For lunch time, I will serve the Chef Table. Sometimes if i work for the evening time, I am in charging of cleaning up and putting – more... away the food.

I enjoy greeting the customer most although it is not as relaxing as working in the kitchen. Customers' smiles make me feel my job is rewarding. – less

Warehouse organizer/ Incinerator/ shuttle driver (Former Employee), Dease Lake, BCJune 4, 2013
Pros: being in camp with no distractions
Cons: i loved being in camp
we would start with unloading pallets from freight trucks, to our warehouse with a forklift, then unloaded the products that was needed for each camp in sections, then bring it to the helicopter so it can be transported, then we would keep and inventory from the kitchen and communicate with the kitchen so we can resupply them, as well as the camp room – more... attendance. some days we would alternate from shuttle bus driving, to removing waste in the incinerator. each day was different, which is why I enjoyed it so much. I learned a ton of responsibility in managing a camp, and maintaining equitable assistance. I enjoyed every aspect of the job, and the variety of experiences it had to offer. – less

they don't care about the people
Housekeeper (Former Employee), Abbotsford, BCApril 13, 2013
Pros: .
Cons: pay is ok, but not good enough for the amount of work. not full time. no benefits. overall, 2 thumbs down.
Sodexo is a huge company and the focus is on making money. They get by on as few staff as possible, then get mad when everything isn't perfect! the work load is not reasonable, and even management doesn't try to deny this. when you complain about being overworked they tell you "I know you can't do everything, so you need to prioritize". then when everything – more... isn't done you get written up! I worked in a hospital in housekeeping, and with this company and their values in place I hope i never get sick. – less
