    I have been working at Compass Group USA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent hours, competitive pay. No holidays, no weekends. Most other employees are nice and easy to work with. Management willing to help out and properly train all employees.

    Cons

    The location I work, they've become very stringent about cutting costs and saving the company money. This means very strict about no overtime, down to making sure we don't clock in until the very minute we're scheduled for.

    Compared to other places I've worked though, the benefits outweigh these minor annoyances. Some other employees like to make a bigger deal out of such things than needed.

    Two Major Companies Put Food-Waste Reduction On Top Of To-Do List

    Charlotte NC (April 19, 2017) - The statistics on food waste are alarming. Nearly all Americans are guilty of tossing edible food both before and after it hits their plates. The good news is, it's easy to make small changes that can save a family of four up to $1,500 a year in food bills.
