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

    Pros

    Hours-great for parent while kids in school
    Provides shirts
    Some co-workers are great

    Cons

    Low pay
    Not trained properly
    Told one thing by someone and told another thing by someone else, so who do you listen to?
    Very click-ish and gossip talk
    Favoritism

    Advice to Management

    Treat ALL employees with respect and LISTEN to what they tell you. Don't just cut them off & put your thoughts in because you've already heard it before.
    Train everyone throughly.
    Instead of being out of the office or staying in the office, watch all working. Don't just assume that when you come walking through everyone is doing their job. More often than not others are too busy gossiping or on their phone, while the others are actually doing their job.

    I have been working at Compass Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I am offered benefits, a paycheck every 2 weeks and paid time off. They do have training and education courses available for qualified associates.

    Cons

    Low salary, limited perks- no perk/ holiday pay for working holidays/ work life balance poor, generic benefits. How the company had their account set up needs to be looked at more closely. RDOs only r seen if ur account is under water, upper management has a poor way of communicating with accounts, needs to be more structured.

    Advice to Management

    Upper mgmt needs to put more focus on their high turnover rate for hourly and salary employees. Improve their i boarding process at accounts. Have perks that employees would want-Compressed workweeks, holiday pay
