Compass Group USA – Why Work For Us?

At Compass, we prioritize social and environmental responsibility to ensure we’re serving the best products possible. We care deeply about the quality of the food we provide, as well as the steps we take to produce it. Each member of the Compass team adds a unique perspective that helps us create our delicious food.

Nutrition and Wellbeing

Compass Group is firmly committed to providing balanced, nutritious food options that fit every diet. Our focus on health and wellbeing is reflected in our decisions to source animal proteins raised without antibiotics, cage-free eggs, and sustainable seafood. We make healthy choices easy by providing tasty food and helpful resources that fit any lifestyle.

Innovation with purpose and partnership is at the forefront of everything we do at Compass Group. We are committed to making it easy for our customers and clients to have great food experiences that promote well-being and are both socially and environmental responsible. We can collectively create massive positive impact in our communities – locally and globally – by incorporating technology to excite and engage our guests, inspiring better choices for both people and planet, and advocating for sustainable sourcing and animal welfare.

As we envision the future of foodservice, we continually explore new initiatives and expand on current platforms that support our four pillars of focus, which we call Envision 2020.

The four pillars of our vision are:

Diversity & Inclusion

Our strength comes from the combination of all the things we have in common – our shared values, vision, and purpose – and the experiences and perspectives that make us each unique.

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


    After 2.5 years with the company, I am still just as energized, enthusiastic, & passionate about my job today as I was on Day 1. This will be the best "big little" company you'll ever work for. Compass Group, a HUGE global organization, has 28 different sectors and sub-sectors. You would be working for 1 of the sectors which feels like a small family owned and operated company. I have direct relationships with everyone from our hourly / front line associates to the CEO himself. In fact, I've been able to snag a few photos and mingle with Gary Green at several different events including the CCC at BB&T Ballpark and the PGA golf tournament at Quail Hollow. The people are what make Compass Group so special.


    Working for a food & beverage company, you'll probably gain a couple pounds because the food is amazing and is always available & offered :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! I love your creativity and innovativeness that keeps us ahead of our competition. Thank you for your strong leadership.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Compass Group USA (Lake Forest, CA) in June 2017.


    Quick personal interview...non scripted. I felt I was getting to low the chef and his requirements. It didn't feel very corperate which I like... I felt as if the chef wanted to make sure of not only my experience and skills but also that i would match the personality he was tying to build for the kitchen.
