Pros – The company boasts an impressive range of contracts, Fortune 50 companies, Education, Military etc, so depending on your area there are lots of opportunities for growth
Cons – The company is food-centric, if you are not in food related role, such as IT, AV, Finance etc. then the company has little support for you. All the policies, raises, company communications are geared for kitchen staff. The company has the contracts in place where it could start pushing other services like Janitorial, Reception, AV, etc but is not activly pursuing this.
Advice to Senior Management – Appoint a non-food business development leader to establish the for non-food related services at your existing contracts.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
Pros – I was employed for three years
Cons – Constant Harassment. Failed attempts to reach out to HR because they communicated everything to my manager. Fired for child illness. Lack of integrity, lack of honesty.
Advice to Senior Management – Stop Micromanaging and let people thrive. Bringing people down doesn't help them work better.
Pros – Most of the time there is little excess work to do, so getting a maintenance routine down is easy. They do provide regular training on the job, and also CTS certification training later on. Once CTS certified they give a raise. If you show a lot of ambition, it's very likely you will be given a promotion within a reasonable amount of time. Lack of ambition is not punished.
Cons – This particular division of the company is relatively new, so there are some procedures in place that are simply cumbersome and time consuming. We must report all our activities throughout the day.
Some managers play favorites and some coworkers play office politics.
There are uniforms which consist of black dickies pants, black shoes, and a provided polo.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
