I have worked in 4 of the Compass Group Canada divisions...from a causal PT employee to a seasonal contracted lower level Manager. There is no benefits within this company, which is disappointing.
Low standards, inadequate technology, and quite a bit of blaming from those who are not qualified to do your job.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Compass Group a better place to work?
Improve standardization, data, best practices, accountability, inclusion, diversity, and less focus on politics, optics, and personality assessments that weed out high achievers.
The coworkers and the Monday to Friday with Saturday, Sunday's off are the only reason I work here. Benefits aren’t great, no sick pay, and a management team that doesn’t seem to care about their employees. Management rarely leaves the office to be “hands on” and basically has no idea what is going on throughout their unit. Also favouritism on who gets hired and promoted.(same culture as management) if you’re not same ethnicity as the manager, forget getting anywhere besides low level. It’s not who’s more competent, it’s who she/he gets along with and can talk in their own language together. (Their English isn’t that great) Also pay is on the low end for this type of work. If they can get away with paying minimum wage they will, and they wonder why Compass has a high turnover....
On the spot. If they don’t call you back right away, unfortunately it means that they are still interviewing other candidates. Myself personally, if a company doesn’t call me back within two weeks, I would call them, and see what’s going on so I can move forward somewhere else.
