unorganized and confusing place to work no open communication
invoice clerk (Former Employee), Winston-Salem,NCJuly 15, 2014
Pros: grandfathered in benefits
Cons: no clear communication
no typical day as we were in transition from Compass purchasing Shaffner Coffee Company. No clear management. I learned I should have started looking for a job sooner. Hardest part of job was leaving without a clear sense of when I was getting paid. Most enjoyable part of job was getting laid off.

Busy office no two days the same.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Moline, ILJuly 8, 2014
Pros: lunch was provided and i worked early and was done early in the afternoon.
Cons: people calling off.
Opened Office in early morning, answered busy phones, handled calendar for food service director, opened mail, called vendors with problems and ordering, helped in lunch room when someone was absent, daily and monthly reports, collected and handled paperwork for new hires. I was the administrative assistant for the food service director and her assistant. – more... The most enjoyable part was that each day was different. – less

never any fun. Always a struggle never any help from the district
Executive chef (Former Employee), largoJuly 7, 2014
Pros: loved the client and the concept as a whole
Cons: budgets out of range. not set up for success
Although I learned a lot, I did not have a choice I was thrown into a situation and promised support, consequently, was overworked and my attention to usual details was thin. Our client demanded more attention to their employees and upper management was aware of the issue but refused to support the team at hand.

Long Hot Hours, Back breaking work.
Driver (Current Employee), Altamonte Springs, FlJuly 6, 2014
Pros: co-workers, pay, holidays off, free food and drinks
Cons: management, hours, day of holiday, inventory
Here at Canteen you will work in all weather conditions. My truck has no AC, motor issues and bug infested. Problems have been addressed to management and overlooked. You will typically work anywhere between 50-70 hours a week, Mon - Fri 4am to whenever you get done (somedays not til about 6pm). Machines are broken and falling apart. Call a machine – more... in for service and you are lucky to have it fixed within a few days. Location managers get upset with the drivers and some customers are rude, to the point of reaching around you to grab a bag of chips from a open machine. Co-workers are great I've had alot of fun with them. Management is okay, they pass alot of the 'I don't care" attitude on to the employees. It is enjoyable at times but you have to make it your own. Don't stress over anything, after all its chips and soda. It is a very physical job constantly climbing in and out of a truck, pulling a soda order and loading for next day in the heat of the day. You get holidays off but remember. Anything you don't do you have to make up another day.
Weekends is nice but you are exhausted to do anything. Getting time off is hard because they only allow one driver maybe two at a time and they have about 20 routes. – less

not a good company to work for
Reception (Current Employee), New York, NYJune 17, 2014
Cons: mistreatment of employees, not fair to all
This company is not great. They do not treat all their employees the same and make a ton of broken promises. They are all talk and no action. They will work you and once they know you are good at something they "expect" you to keep doing it with no extra pay and no advancement. They hire people with no hospitality background and pay them a lot of money. – more... If anyone knows of a job please reply. I am actively looking. Please do not waste your time with this company. they will work you like a slave. The ones who should do most of the work because they get paid to make tons of mistakes and all us "little people" dont get paid and we are expected to clean up their mess. If we mess up everyone one will point out your mistakes – less

Lead Supervising Chef (Current Employee), Putney Vt.June 13, 2014
Pros: 1 week end day off.
Cons: to many layoffs for an hourly employee.
Have some good people to work with. Management needed to do a little better on follow through.
Layoffs on an hourly pay is difficult which is one reason to move into a management position where I like to be a hands on Manager with the ability to cut waste and improve productivity.

PATIENT ESCORT/ INPATIENT PHARMACY COURIER (Former Employee), Pensacola FLJune 10, 2014
Pros: 30 min lunch, good co workers, safe environment
Calling into the Teletracking system and picking up job tasks. Taking patients to and from procedures in a safe and brisk manner.
I learned great communication skills, management, money management,as well as awesome customer service. Management could use more stability,so that functions could flow better from management down to employee. My co-workers – more... were great people I enjoyed coming into work to hear different stories that were shared among one another and gained an ample amount of associates. The hardest part about the job is making sure that you have all the equipment that you'll need to get your job done also making sure that, the equipment worked properly so that I wouldn't have any type of injuries. The most enjoyable part was getting to work with the client (Sacred Heart employees) because they had a variety of personalities that stood out and they helped pick myself and each other up if anyone was down. They demonstrated the true meaning of teamwork and caring not only for customers but one another as well. – less

Concierge (Former Employee), 388 GreenwichJune 7, 2014
Pros: n/a
Cons: lying management
I worked for Compass under Citigroup and Compass is a company that runs it's employee like a plantation. If you are not part of the Team Player then you will not be with the company for long. And they speak so much about diversity that is a straight LIE. They hire people that they can control and if you have a Brain or a strong personality forget being – more... hired. You must be a yes person and you will fit this company perfectly. Now don't get me wrong Compass is a large firm but the owner of this brand and company really needs to investigate more on management before this company goes under in lawsuits! – less

Productive, fun and offers a friendly atmosphere
Cafe' Attendant (Current Employee), Fond du Lac, WIJune 2, 2014
A typical day is preparing grab-n-go cold sandwiches, salads, hot dishes and preparing grilled items.

What I have learned from management is how to control costs, create an inviting cafe and offer high quality and healthy food.

The hardest part of the job is the volume of customers to employees ratio. Manual labor and time managing to prepare food – more... for the students, staff, faculty and public who visit the technical college can become difficult and tiresome.

The most enjoyable part of the job is customer relations and being part of a small team. – less

Payroll Specialist (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCMay 29, 2014
A typical day is me working on the phones answering calls from managers helping them solve their payroll issues while working on my other work orders. Being able to prioritize work orders while handling calls throughout the day. The hardest part of my job is making sure I get done what I need to get done while juggling the phone calls, making sure I – more... give the help I need without being on the phone overly long.

The most enjoyable part is knowing I'm helping those managers out and contributing to the overall goal of the team.

I've really learn communication skills and learning how to deal with all kinds of people. Learning how to time manage even more and being able to multi-task while making sure I do my job effectively. – less
