FSW/Counter Help/General Help (Current Employee) – London, ON – 19 April 2018
A typical day at consists of clocking in, setting up and serving customers. All food is heat and eat. (You basically put it in an oven and press a button so if you're looking to improve knife skills, food prep, etc. this isn't the place for you.)
*A note on clocking in: You will NOT get paid for coming in early due to a potentially busy day, but you will get paid if you're incompetent and can't get your job done on time and need to stay late.
Management spends more time smoking than working and it takes them days to respond to you concerning work-related issues. (If you're lucky enough to get a response at all.)
Management has no idea what they're doing so you're constantly blind sided by changes in the menu, prices, shortages, etc. which YOU will have to explain to angry customers.
Management will not have your back concerning ANYTHING. HR is your best friend. Protect yourself and do not take anything they say at face value. Always inquire to HR about policies. Management will try to bully you into covering shifts, doing extra work, etc.
This is good for people who want an easy enough job while they prepare themselves for better things. Do no make a career out of this place because there's nowhere to go. (Management is a combination of relatives and people romantically involved with each other.)
All units are different so try yourself out in as many as you can before you decide on one. If you get a good location with good customers it can be a fun place to work.
Please note, this review applies to management in London, Ontario.
I clicked "NO" formore... the last question assuming it applies to the specific managers (there have been THREE since I've started).less
Free food. Easy work. Some customers are awesome.
Low pay. Terrible management. No room to grow. Some customers are terrible.

Compass says they promote within its not always true. They often overlook Assistant Managers who have worked many years for them, for any higher management positions. Most Assistant managers usually work long hours as Senior management often leave early
