General Catering Help (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 August 2018
When you work there so many people tell you what to do..Not organized. Huge company but they do not offer a free lunch . They cut your lunch from your pay check. So many people and favouritism .Supervisor never listened employees and sometimes even yelled. I do not if it is different now but it was like that years ago.I also witnessed the manager was smoking in the men washroom instead of going out ..After I left I heard he was laid off.
cook (Former Employee) – Prince Albert, SK – 8 January 2019
many many loop hole polices that they can use to hold above you criticize your every move while spectating from afar. write ups seem to mood based and up to "management" lack of wholeness as a group general feeling of unsatisfaction in the work place or even fear.
if you enjoy living in fear of your bosses who likely will burn you and abuse you on a continual bases while union idly watches you burn. i can assure you this job is not for the faint of heart or wallet as suspensions, sick leave and stress leave are not paid for.
after union dues and taxes i would take home about as much as I made making 12$ an hour. leaving me with no money to use the befits as you have to be reimbursed for your discounts
this is a monster corporation. steer clear of their apathy
no breaks, management that encourages cut throat behaviours.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Ottawa South, ON – 15 May 2018
Eurest and Compass are very large companies. In order to get ahead an individual must exert themselves to be a true difference maker as competition is fierce and advancement is merit based over simply the duration of time spent in a position
Good benefits, good hours, huge company so many places and opportunities to move around and up
Zero training, poor support by upper management, unrealistic expectations.

Catering Server (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 17 January 2018
I worked for this company for over twenty years. I believe had the union not been there it may have been easier for management and worker to build a better relationship. As it was one of the better jobs in windsor in the early 90's it quickly dropped and never recovered. Example in 1994 I made 11.63/hour and there was 160+ workers by 2014 i had only increased to 15.45/hour and there were only 16 workers left
Heavy Duty Cleaner (Former Employee) – Alliston, ON – 19 January 2018
i enjoyed cleaning through Eurest Services because you had a route you had to follow every night, you were always open to learning new things. the management was great to talk to when needed. the hardest part of the job was the midnight shift and i liked knowing what had to be done and how you felt once things were all finished
Central Stores Supervisor/Honda Canada Mfg (Former Employee) – Alliston, ON – 5 March 2016
Horrible management skills. No staff retention due to lack of incentives and perks and NO raises, over worked with policies and procedures for min wage. Do not care for their employees or their concerns only care about the bottom line and profit margins. Horrible CONTRACT company that keeps changing its name. Stay AWAY unless you like to have little to no moral and get pushed around by the people you slave for each day.
Heavy Duty Cleaner (Former Employee) – Strathroy, ON – 9 June 2013
A typical day at Eurest Services, started bright and early. Step 1, Sign in, Step 2. Prepare, working utilities, Step 3, Get to work! I learned and passed WHMIS course, how to drive a Zamboni machine, what to do if there's a factory fire, how to handle different cleaning, chemical substances and social skills. The management was organized but employer needed to help more and communicate better with employee's. The hardest part working at Eurest was, driving the Zamboni machine, we had to watch for hot flash from magnesium machines, watch for pedestrians and make sure we didn't break the machine... The most enjoyable part of this job, was earnings and meeting new people everyday.
Breaks, Social, independence, driving skills
Unexpected shift switch, unpaid lunch, hot temperatures
go in take tempature of 5 meals document on proper paper work. Go start truck do my circle check. Start loading truck with last to come off first to go in. I have learned about working under a goverment contract how all T's need to crossed an I's dotted. It is a very high demanding job. Co-works I don't see alot of as I would start befor anyone else gets in and little communication when I get back as I have already put a long day in and just finish my paper work hand it in if office is open.
The management are there when you need them if there are problems,they need to be called to advise me of my next step. As there is procedures to follow.
The hardest part of the job would be the over nights, I will drive to Ottawa try and get there so I can rest, as I need to be at each delivery at a certin time.
I like being in a truck like by myself, it is like being my owen boss. I love being on the road and seeing Ontario.
Janitorial Cleaners (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 April 2013
> starts at 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm Monday to Friday. > learned to be punctual at all time, learned to used different kind of tools, time management on site. > management are supportive too, before you go on your designated site we have a small meeting to discuss some issues or small problems how to avoid such problems, they always reminding safety precautions. > it not hard to deal because we are all Filipino, we can easily communicate and understand each other because we used our own dialect. > the hardest part is when one member of your team is absent, and when they transferred you in other site. > when there is cooperation among members to do task...
Night Cleaner (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 23 January 2018

Cleaner (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 9 September 2014
While I was at this company for 5 years, i found that there was no communication between not only the management and the employees but between the management and supervisor. There were a lot of good people who worked for this company who left due to the communication being unsatisfactory. The co workers were always nice and welcoming. The management was very bland not much emotion or sympathy toward their employees and favoritism was always a problem at the workplace. The most enjoyable time at this company was all the new faces i got to meet an befriend.
It's a challenging place due to very demanding customers yet rewarding at times.
Restaurant manager (Current Employee) – Richmond, BC – 8 December 2014
We cook and serve food to customers.from 7:30 - 3:00 Monday through Friday. We have a great staff, very reliable and honest. The hardest part of the job is dealing with rude customers and having no one on our side supporting us when there is an issue. The most enjoyable part of the job is cooking.
Great hours, no weekends, no late nights, and pretty good benefits.
The only con would be is I have no support from my boss or District Manager.
Part-time, overnight (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 11 January 2017
It is a heavy duty cleaning job however my coworkers are totally type B's. Typical night, I do carpets, sometimes cleaning the food court, washrooms etc... The management is poor. Changing schedules almost in the last minute without notifying you. Clear favoritism, with little to no explanation as to why he has changed schedules so abruptly.
