Team leaders are very hard working and work with you. Every company has issues to deal with and this company needs to work on how co-workers are treated as well as disciplinary actions suited to the issue. My experience with some co workers was terrible. I chose to move to afternoon shift as the afternoon shifts I was treated much better.

I had the misfortune of working for Compass Group and just want to let others know that they treat their workers horribly, are disrespectful, pay barely over minimum wage and overall don't care about you. You are a number, they don't care how hard you work, how much you give, or how much you care. They will dispose of you like garbage as soon as they realize you can't be manipulated or intimidated. They prefer people who are lazy as long as they don't question management.
Pros
Zero
Cons
Nothing

Minimum wage with bare minimum benefits after 6 months.
Job secuirty is the same as other non-union jobs but advancement is reserved for incompetent people that know how to play politics. I’ve seen good managers that are overworked and horrible managers that create chaos because of lack of experience so they’re all over the place.
Pros
Free training

I loved working Compass. Their salary is a bit low, but they have an excellent benefit plan. I had many wonderful experiences working for them. Every day was a new learning experience.
Pros
I worked in long term care. I love my time around seniors.
Cons
They pay a lower hourly wage, and I did miss a lot of holidays with my family.

I loved working here. The hours were good and the work was interesting. Something different every day so you never get bored. The management was probably the best I have ever worked with. Sadly I had to move on to another job to make more money. Really wish the pay was better. If I could afford it, I would work for Crothall before the company I am with now.
Pros
interesting work, good people, nice management
Cons
really low pay.

Compass group is a very efficient and productive work place. Seasonal work can slow advancement. Very friendly professional staff and fair pay rates make it an easy place to spend a summer.

A typical day at work was a little bit stressful but I had some good colleagues so we were helping each other. I learned to clean the dining hall, toilet. The most enjoyable part of the job was to meet people all the time,the hardest part was when they ask you to do a task and you are not done yet, they interrupt you with another one and after that they will be shouting. It was like we are not HUMANS

Working with Compass Group provides a steady workload, and a good energy for a positive work environment. This helps when training new staff, who are daunted by the large scale job.

I was employed by Marquis for commercial overnight cleaning. This included power scrubbing floors, cleaning bathrooms, vacuuming hallways and washing windows. I found they had a hard time maintaining regular staff, and employees were often expected to take up the slack. the work itself was fairly easy and I appreciated being unsupervised. I learned to coordinate tasks to save time, as well as how to operate and clean an auto scrubber.
Pros
Headphones allowed

The management changed my hours 3 times after promising me certain hours in the first week. I was not properly trained, just told to shadow someone else and the few people that I shadowed all had extremely different ways of doing their job.

i dont see the need for all the negative reviews i've seen so far, ive been with Compass Canada for almost a year and havent felt more welcomed in a job. (not to mention--needed; which is alwaays nice to know)
when you're to the point in your occupation where, you can be replaced, but you;re company / client is going to try everything in their power to keep you -- then , you KNOW you;re where you need to be.

co-workers ? awesome. friendly and laid back

management ? could be a little perked up but they try their hardest for how long theyve been here..

most enjoyable ? knowing how much of an impact my job/ abilities do for the client and people around me during my time at work.

hardest part of my job .. ? driving floor machine :) [ no big


yes, i am a heavy-duty cleaner. not kitchen help, as you would assume ...
