    Pros

    Quick interviewing process for the position I applied for. Great pay and benefits over competitors, a lot of training if you look for it.

    Cons

    Some of the co-workers choose to be negative about work life balance instead of making it work for them. However Compass has a training in Jose to deal with different personalities.

    Pros

    Great benefits. 6% match on 401K. The discount marketplace is great also. Very eco friendly and green company. Solid management staff. All leaders not bosses.

    Cons

    Low hourly rates for associates but decent salaries. High turnover for BOH kitchen staff. Can go months without an exec chef bc the hiring process takes a while.

    Advice to Management

    They offer a Manager in Training program. It usually takes 8-12 months and you manage every single department before you qualify for the job. You make an hourly during the program then salary once completed.
