Financial Administrator (Former Employee), Calgary, ABJuly 30, 2012
Pros: it was in a hospital setting
Cons: i wish i had more training to learn the ropes
A typical day was to arrive at work, close the door and do all the payroll and accounting for the business. I learned a lot from this job especially since the lady that trained me did not speak much English and she was very pregnant so she was at the doctors most of the time. Much of the job was self taught. I was very busy so I did not get to know – more... my co-workers as well as I would have like to. – less

Decisions take place behind doors
Facility Operations Manager (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMay 21, 2012
Cons: too much work load, no support from management, politics, decisions behind close doors, no career growth
I once heard a comment that "I'm being left alone by Sodexo in front of a herd of wolves". I guess this clearly defines their methodology and the way they deal with the situation. Less said is better.

Co workers are also not cooperative and are back biters, may be because they are saving their jobs by playing dirty games. I'm glad that I made a decision.

I was hired for a position that far exceeded my knowledge base because I was the "best candidate", I was told "you won't be left out there on an island...we will be there for you...we know we are throwing an unimagineable amount at you and we don't expect you to grasp it all right away". And there I was alone on my island. PS- they still owe me over $1000!

Thank you for seconding me. They also didn't give me my dues initially by saying that I'd consumed all of my vacations, however when I submitted proofs and did follow ups, they then realized it and had to pay them. This shows where their norms and ethical values are! For them it should be Ethics First.

Cashier (Former Employee), evansville, inAugust 30, 2014
Pros: all my coworkers were like family
Cons: no change for part time
I really enjoyed working for this company. It was almost like a small town business. You knew everybody that came in and who you worked with. When a new person showed up it only took a couple times before you knew them too! The only con is part-timers received no type of advancement even if you had been there for years.

General Manager (Current Employee), MidwestAugust 23, 2014
Pros: extensive list of very good education and support systems.
Cons: no time to take advantage of educational tools and support systems.
The Economy, Healthcare Reform, the Culture, and the competitiveness of the industry has negatively impacted the quality of contractual services offered to clients. The focus does not appear to be what is best for the customer.
