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

    Pros

    Excluding management, workers were amazing to work with. Majority of the people returned every summer because of the workers.

    Cons

    Management doesn't even pretend to care about the employees. Underpaid supervisors, extremely understaffed because people were quitting from the utter disrespect from management. Often put in situations that set the employees up to fail, then management becomes upset when failure occurs. Favoritism within management, but little to no respect for the workers. Was told by the boss that everyone is replaceable and he has no problem firing anyone. Would not recommend working at the Toronto Zoo location.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge your staff and their needs. Show some respect for the people that are running the company. Appreciation goes a long way.

    Pros

    The other employees who actually stayed were great.

    Cons

    Bad management.
    High turn over rate.
    Underpaid. Understaffed all the time.

    Advice to Management

    You need to be more organized.
    You need to honour your agreements with people.
    You need to stop lying to interviewees about what the job actually is.
    You need to stop cutting your budgets and underpaying people and being understaffed.
    You need to figure how to reduce your turn over rate.
