Depending on the day, I have worked as little as 3 hours to working 14 hours in a day. Most of my shifts range from 8 to 12 hours per unit.

You are charged $2 to $5 per meal depending which unit you are working for. Don't expect to be paid overtime...you sign that right away in your contract - Compass averages hours over a 2 week period. And if you work for more than one unit, even if you work more than 44 hours a week overall, your hours are paid separately by the units - so it is like having 2 part-time jobs. Favouritism is standard in their culture.

Expect minimum wage... most of us are paid at alcohol servers rates, even when working in the kitchen. Breaks are not allowed until after working 5 hours. When you are on cash, be mindful to have perfect cash. I know of people who have been let go for being $20 short - Compass sees it as theft. Cashiers at one unit I worked at were routinely brought in front of management with police present to explain why the cash was short.

Staff were not allowed to eat until after their shift was over and they were punched out. They had whatever leftovers remained after the sporting event, which was usually cold.

The interview process when I was hired 29 years ago is a lot different than the one today that they go through. 29 years ago the office manager interviewed you and you started the next week. Today I believe it is a lot different with being interviewed by a few people before you get the job.
