    PROFITS BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Compass Group

    Pros

    Scratch cooking, No Late nights & Holidays were shared and early.

    Cons

    Hard working Under-paid Skelton crew, Old equipment in disrepair. Unskilled or under-skilled managers. Constant threats of firing if over budget on labor or food costs. Bottom line came above Seniors we served. If you tried to speak to corporate it's a run around. Getting anything approved is a nightmare. All that matter was getting apartments filled all else is second at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember service first. If you provide quality food and housing it will speak for itself. That will be the best marketing campaign you could very pay for. Visit and work. Yeah work with those who are in daily contact with the seniors who PAY your salaries. Looking at the bottom line of a P&L will never tell you anything about the future profitability. Actually, going into the trenches will. A general cannot lead form the comfort of his office.
    Corporate is always to busy or too lazy to figure out the problem. It's a get them in and get them paying. It's unfortunate that seniors pay all this money and corporate seems to think as long as the checks come in; they're doing their jobs.

    Pros

    Cooking the meals for the students, and staff was very rewarding, change from the company before to this one was understandable for business. Tried to please the students, and staff with what they felt they wanted to eat.

    Cons

    After the change we lost a couple of key employees, but due to enrollment issues some of the educational staff was let go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the faith it will work out.

    Pros

    There are no pros whatsoever to working with this company.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This 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.

    I worked at Compass Group (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    there is nothing good about this company

    Cons

    Treated 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 ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. Appreciate your employees don't make them victims.
