Room for Improvement
There's very little incentive to give both management and employees of Compass good reasons to stick around. The benefits offered are sub-standard at best. They can do better in this regard to look after those who work for them. It's very basic. Considering one doesn't make much for pay from them, it's disappointing. The higher ups of Compass don't pay enough attention, nor exercise due diligence when it comes to keeping an eye on the management staff they have at their various locations. Some are taking them for quite a ride and they don't even know it. If they do, they're certainly not doing anything about it. Another problem with Compass is it's always their way or no way at all. This is what makes them so hated by many whom they cater to. They have the contracts to do business, yes, but talk to the vast majority of those who have to deal with them on a daily basis and if it were up to them, Compass would be booted from so many job sites they're at it would be interesting to see how they'd survive as a corporation after that. I understand the need to maintain a good budget, but when there's the obviousness of a rip-off scam going on that's running as rampant as it is, it's difficult to give a company like Compass a better rating than they currently have.
Pros

Worse Work place ever worked
At Paul Dojack youth centre Regina operations Bad management and worst work environment ever seen They have favouritism at work. They change the schedule whenever they want. Employees are busy doing back biting all the times. People don’t have any kitchen skills they work without gloves, without covering hair and even manager would want you to work when you are suffering with flu which is against law. Only favourite employee will have day off on public holiday. Manager doesn’t know anything about kitchen operations or any food. Doesn’t know Egan how to operate kitchen equipment Very lucky being out of this organization
Pros
Medical benefits
Cons
Worst management and worst cormployees

Inmates that do not listen, theft from inmates, difficult co-workers
