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

    Pros

    Excellent growth opportunities and a lot of leeway to do things your way as long as you’re within company policy and you are delivering results. If you’re driven, a successful and innovative project you spearhead will put you on the map and open a lot of doors.

    Cons

    Operations are too large and managing systems not very intuitive which makes the client portfolio a little hard to manage efficiently and it can be stressful when you’re trying to fix things during a down year.

    Advice to Management

    Continue leading the charge with innovations.

    Pros

    Growing company with lots of opportunities. People work very hard and take customer service seriously. Kindness is a key part of the culture and they frequently volunteer and provide service to the communities where they do business.

    Cons

    It's a fast paced environment and the work is not easy, but it is well worth it in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on the path you are on and never stop caring for the front line associates.

    I have been working at Canteen full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you show potential, are willing to make a difference and express the desire, your opportunities are endless with Canteen. If you are willing to relocate to other areas of the country, those opportunities may come sooner for the right person. In nearly 10 years, I have had the opportunity to hold multiple progressive positions. The culture of the company as a whole is very positive and growth minded. While Canteen is a large company, it is great to know that they afford the local operations the opportunity to own their own culture and create an inclusive environment that fits the local personnel.

    Cons

    Even with the size of the company at local levels, opportunity for growth may be limited unless you are willing to relocate. Many of the salaried positions can be held for multiple years without much turnover, especially in successful locations.
