Morrisons is horrible in the Healthcare Industry. Go back to Cafeteria!!

Kitchen Staff (Current Employee)
Loudoun Heights, VA

I have been working at Compass Group part-time for more than a year

ProsThere are no pros whatsoever to working with this company.

ConsPays too little. No room for growth.NON-working supervisors

Advice to Senior ManagementThis company doesnt know the first thing about healthcare! Unsanitary work environment. They expect you to just be glad you have a job. Them crossing over to healthcare was a money move. This is a multi-billion dollar company and they don't give a rats ass about those who are helping them make the money.They expect more out of the part timers than the full timers. Working for this company is like working in a prison.The supervisors do not think they have to work especially when they are short staffed and think their only job is to order everyone else around and never contribute to the work load themselves. They act as if the employees have to pay them to work there.This is an AWFUL company.

Horrible

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Compass Group for more than 3 years

Prosthere is nothing good about this company

ConsTreated as if you should be "Happy to have a job". If that's all you care about good luck, that's all you should expect. Do not expect to be appreciated. And do not expect anyone to acknowledge what you bring to the table. Professional growth is not a something that occurs within.

Advice to Senior ManagementPractice what you preach. Appreciate your employees don't make them victims.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

unhappy worker

Grill Cook (Current Employee)
Cherry Hill, NJ

I have been working at Compass Group full-time for more than 5 years

ProsI was expecting be a nice company but sucks!!

ConsTo many bosses making a lots of money and hard workers earning cheap salaries!!!!! Especially when the chef manager has special treatment with the cashier letting her be absent or out, And she get the same pay???? And hard workers got screw with vacations days, sick days and getting the right salary??? Holding paystubs with the purpose of hide his special treatment with this girl???

Advice to Senior ManagementHave a better way to determine the salary between cooks and cashier, be professional and give the right pay!!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

General Manager (Former Employee)
Boca Raton, FL

I worked at Compass Group full-time for more than 10 years

Advice to Senior ManagementFollow what you preach and make sure your regional managers aren't hypocrites

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Honestly.... the worst company I have ever worked for.

EVS Associate (Current Employee)
Hickman, TN

I have been working at Compass Group full-time for more than a year

ProsHours are great, pay is okay, benefits work out, although can be confusing while its changes so much.

ConsManagements do not listen to the employees. There are many situations that occur. Harassment, stalking, intimidation's, manipulation's, and lies take place, and we have no one to turn to. Every complaints that have been made are over turned and written off as resolved. In which, seems as if the okay was given for this behavior. This only makes the situations worst for us employee's. Very dissatisfied.

Advice to Senior ManagementI understand that working with an associate is easier than the whole fire, and hire process is. But, as time goes on, it will only benefit you to do so. We deserve to be heard. We are a great team. Honest, hard working, and dedicated. Walk outs will happen, due to these situations you continue to be ignore. I pray the right decisions take place and protection is given to us employee's. Not one person is always right. Listen to us, help us, and give us a harassment free environment. You deserve it, and so do we.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Disappointing, the employee is not important

Great Room Coordinator (Former Employee)
Redmond, WA

I worked at Compass Group full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSome of the pros for working for the 4th largest company in the world is that you have a great infrastructure to rely on when you need to & it's worldwide, so making an international transistion is relatively easy

ConsEverything else about this company is a con. The people they employ, the policies they abide by, the HR department, the pay, the benefits, the growth opportunities and potential, etc. Any and every thing else you can think of.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to managment is when you take a survey of how things are going, really listen. There are some good ideas. Re-assess what people are paid when a new responsibility is given. Do 360 reviews - where employees get to review the managers. Truly have an open door policy, dont tell people they can talk to upper management when it's frowned upon. Such a large company that cuts corners in every way, should have more money for benefits - they shouldn't be lacking so much.
Review each branch of the company first hand. Almost everyone i know that works for Compass is unhappy.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Compass Group needs major improvement

Receptionist (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Compass Group

ProsI have yet to find one.

ConsManagers talk to you like you are a toddler. Upper management treats anyone below them like trash.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo treat peole with respect. The people under you do all the work and you get all the credit for it. Show the little people of Compass Group that you care and maybe you will not have such high turn over rate.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

The management do not care...

Kitchen Assistant In A School (Former Employee)
Leeds, England (UK)

I worked at Compass Group part-time for less than a year

ProsNo pros as they don't care about children or employees

Conscons is working for them

Advice to Senior ManagementMy 3 year old daughter recently broke her arm one Sunday afternoon which required a visit to the hospital. We finally got home at 1am and at 7.50am I informed work about the situation. My daughter had a fresh pot put on her arm BTW. Work then proceeded to order me to get a baby sitter and return to work immediately while spouting about company policy. In fact the rest of the conversation was awful and as a result I felt I was pushed out of my job and to date not one person has got back to us. Loss of earnings...Pushed out. And this is in a school. if they don't care about my daughter then they don't care about the other 1000 children in school or any other school. In fact the regional manager took great pleasure in telling me that when her children are ill, she get's a baby sitter and gets straight to work.

Extreamly Unprofessional

CSA (Current Employee)
Cheam, England (UK)

I have been working at Compass Group part-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe location is great... Thats thr only plus point....

ConsThe company is very unprofessional!! The managers dont respect the staff. The team leader dosnn't know how to use a till and some staff too! We have got a new manager and she tris to boss everyone and doesn't listen to any suggestions. In a recent occasion she lied to one of the staff! Working conditions are bad. and nobody speaks about a raise for a long time employees. They are all on the same wage for many years!

Advice to Senior ManagementPlase see whats happening in the stores and listen to the problems of saff and not just the managment. Improve the working conditions and keep those managers who can respect staff.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
