sodexo is a good place to work for someone who only needs a few hours here and there, maybe a hobby job, rather than a job they rely on to pay the bills. I love my job at Queens, with Sodexo but my hours aren't paying my bills, the fellow employees and employers are all amazing, positive people. the job atmosphere at Sodexo is astonishing.
the yearly raise is promising, managment is flexible
not enough hours, seniority based scheduled shifts
low skilled workforce, gm out of touch with reality of day-to-day operations
Retail Manager (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – February 21, 2015
one of the largest employers in Kingston (600) 100 are fulltime unionized positions making 20.00 per hour but the other 500 work 20-25 hours per week at 11.00 per hour thus making a large wage disparity for employees who perform the exact same tasks and many low skilled workers
Receptionist for Sodexo (Former Employee) – Pfizer Consumer Healthcare, Mississauga, ON. – January 19, 2015
Learned something new almost every single day of work. Challenged my multi-tasking and time management skills and bettered it all the time. Acquired strong product knowledge. Always kept Client interest above everything for which a great deal of appreciation was received.
always met new people, and workplace was just an 8 minute drive from home.
the management provided very little or no support at all.
I enjoyed working in the kitchen, and my boss was an awesome chef and had great taste in music. My co-workers were really nice people and I had no problems with anybody. Wish to be apart of this team again someday would be awesome, but to those looking for a great pay and meeting new people..this is the job for you.
Primary Store Clerk (Former Employee) – Kapuskasing, ON – November 14, 2014
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 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.
Line Cook (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – October 19, 2014
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 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.
