Unit Supervisor/Chef (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 9 November 2017
The Operation managers need some training on how to treat workers Need respect for the people bring their money in. Terrible to work for, they expect you to work full hours and get paid for less if productivity is low.
Runner (Current Employee) – Prince George, BC – 8 November 2017
. could follow a routine, basically same job every single shift. . High stress, lots of big crowds, staff are strung out after long weekends full of events . if you were uncomfortable doing something, someone else would gladly pick up your slack.
Employee (Current Employee) – Canada – 7 November 2017
Compass Group is a decent place to start your career. Work/life balance can be difficult to achieve. Salary is below market value but you can have many open opportunities to advance at Compass if you proactively seek and ask the right questions to your manager.
Great people and open culture
High turnover. Tough work/life balance. Low salary
Senior Operations Manager/Acting General Manager (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 27 October 2017
Compass is a great company to work for , lots of opportunity for advancement and continual support for progression. The culture is built on the pillars of the company ,and the core values are embraced by its employees. The hours can be long but the rewards are great, recognition of achievements are sent from all levels with executive leadership taking time to ensure that all levels know how much their efforts are appreciated. The sense of family and identity within the group is amazing .

General Help (Former Employee) – Milton, ON – 4 October 2017
This is a company that has alot of potential if they only had proper and professional management. There is a huge lack of communication amongst the different departments. There is alot of pressure put on the staff and at times are given unrealistic expectations. There is also a significant amount of family relations across the board from general workers to management which entails issues of favouritsm that I myself witnessed on many occasions. Alot of gossip in this place aswell. The only good thing I can truly say about this company is the benefits are fantastic But if you want to work in an organized environment that takes pride in equality with opportunities for growth ... this is not a place to work. The pay isn't worth it and the staff are not treated that great. Many unhappy staff members.
Barista (Former Employee) – Burnaby SFU – 4 October 2017
I worked as a Starbucks Barista for Compass Group Canada. I loved working there when the semester was at peak for studying. I was always busy and always enjoying what I did. Unfortunately, there was very little room for advancement in a company I would have loved to expand my experience.
Head Cashier (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 20 September 2017
A typical day at work started when arriving at work with a cheery good morning to everybody who was in the office when I got there. I found the most enjoyable part of the job was balancing the room. It was a good feeling to balance and know that you must of done a great job of counting the money from all the different branches.
Tim Hortons/Subway, (Former Employee) – London, ON – 17 September 2017
Great benefits. Must be capable of adapting quickly and under constant pressure. Little to no promotions, yearly increase and a promise of shifts.
Hard to keep job if you don't adapt fast enough or aren't able to pick up needed skills within two weeks. Some returning customers haggle prices, steal, and make things stressful for evening staff. Some staff members are hard to either get along with or have a sharp eye for any mistakes and grudges waiting to be held between other staff members.
Regardless of the fact, they hire based on personality and not by skill-set; although it would make a great asset to your resume. It's overwhelming at first, but regulars are always very kind to help out when it's needed for certain situations.
This is a high turn-over rate job, and 3 months probation is needed to be met before benefits are to be given.
