    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Compass Group Canada (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Upcoming and seasoned Marketing professionals...BEWARE.
    DO NOT preform any projects for potential employment.
    They demand a substantial assessment of your experience and when completed and delivered they lack the professionalism of contacting you back. DO NOT fall into their trap...your time is worth more than theirs.
    Good luck.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Compass Group Canada in September 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online. Got a typical screening call several weeks later and then was asked to interview with the hiring manager. Hiring manager was late and came unprepared for the interview. Probably one of the worst places I ever interviewed at. Had a friend who was going in a few weeks later for a similar job. Exact same experience.

    Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Compass Group Canada (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online and several days later received an email invite for interview. Arrived at the place well in advance but since the place had security check-point, I wasn't able to go inside. The interviewer did not come out to take me inside and I had to phone them to remind them that I was here. The interview was short, about 10min. It was pleasant to talk to her. I did not get the job but was referred to another position, for which I had another interview with another manager. The same thing happened again when I arrived at the place for a second interview and the manager couldn't be bothered to come out to greet me. The security guard had to lead me inside to find the manager when it was past the interview time. The interview was short, about 10min again. The manager did not seem to know what position I was applying to. The manager assured me that I'd get a response within a few days. When I hadn't heard back, I tried to follow up, multiple times. All communications with this management went to nowhere. Not even a polite response saying that I was not not the right fit. The posting was still on the company website so I wasn't even sure if the position had been filled. Extremely disappointed in a company that treated potential candidates as such.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Compass Group Canada.

    Interview

    The interview was a joke. The interviewee were expecting a much senior candidate which was not highlighted in the job description that had been posted. No formal list of questions that were prepared. It was much like an informational session which ended in 20 minutes and was initially supposed to be for a hour

    The job was reposted with a completely new description which now highlights what they are looking for. Poor job on behalf of the management and a complete waste of time for the candidate. It left a bad taste in my mouth for sure for a food service company.

    Everyone's time should be valued and that is something you'd definitely want to look in a prospect employee.

    Interview

    From time of application to receiving an offer took 3 weeks. First received an email to schedule a phone interview At the end of phone interview was told I would hear back later that day or the next day once I was presented as a candidate to the hiring manager. Received a call back later that day, scheduled an in-person interview with the hiring manager. Received another call two days later to schedule another in-person interview with the director of the department. Heard back at the end of the week asking for references and an offer.

    Data Scientist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Compass Group Canada (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through a recruiter firm, S.I Systems, in January 2017, and I passed the first recruiter round, and S.I Systems sent in my application. I got called in for an in person interview 4 weeks later. Then I passed the in person interview, and I was given a technical challenge. After submitting my solution for the technical test, they accepted my answer and wanted me to go in-person to explain my approaches. I presented and explained my solution, and they asked me a lot of business case related questions. Some related to the technical test, some related to running a business. Mostly, they care a lot about driving sales. I was given a very positive feedback by the hiring manager right after the interview, but they completely ignored me after I tried to follow up with the status. I tried to follow up a few times, but they just completely disappeared.
