I worked at Compass Group USA full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

opportunities to learn and receive training exist. if you are hungry to learn there is a lot offered.

Cons

part of working in a large company is that you are just a number. if you do not work to stand out among your peers you can become stagnant.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

we are in the business of providing great customer service and selling good food. the technology we are being asked to use to report our progress is actually becoming a burden to keep up with rather than a tool to support our businesses.

    Former Employee - Night Supervisor in Westminster, MD

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

    Pros

    There are many chances to learn new technique or how to operate new kitchen equipment, as well as getting to experience new dishes.

    Cons

    The instillation I worked at lacked definitive leadership and communication. A general idea of what was needed would be said but management did not seem to share the same view point; as such misinterpretations and conflicting orders were abundant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what goes on in all sections of the business. Just because there are good reviews doesn't mean everything is 'good'. Also pay more attention to your workers, they are the face and foundation of all your efforts.

    Current Employee - Audio Video Technician in Redmond, WA

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

    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.
