    I have been working at Compass Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Compass group allowed me to develop my culinary skills, and management skills, while allowing me to keep my life as a single dad in line.

    Cons

    Compass group has been holding on to many accounts in the CT region that are small and not challenging for me, and with company's leaving the state i feel I want to find work elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better system for hiring, and for management guidance at the unit level from the top down.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Compass Group.

    Interview

    I applied online, had one phone interview with HR then a phone interview with Regional VP then in person with Regional VP. I immediately was asked to do an assessment after the first interview. This is a DISC assessment. In person interview was one hour. It was very intense with many scenario questions and personality questions.
