not a great place to work in food services
Wendy's (Former Employee), Radford, VAApril 12, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: very poor managment, treat the customers bad, not enough pay
The management is poor they don't care about there employees all they care about is getting the big bonus every year while the employees don't get a raise. Don't get no breaks what so ever or overtime. And when u go ask your manager something that pertains work oh they don't know. The managers are real rude to the customers and blame the employees for – more... no reason when your trying to make things right with the customers. – less

Horrible place to work if you value your job and work hard
cook / supervisor (Former Employee), clinton twp MIApril 11, 2014
Pros: a few friends i made over the years
Cons: read above
always getting yelled at, always telling you that you never do your job correctly even if you do exactly as they say. didn't pay enough for the work load I had to do. I learned that if i wanted to advance in life that that place was not the place to do it. co workers never did they're job correctly argued with you when you told them that it needed to – more... be done. I was harassed when i was at home by co workers and they did nothing about it ..was a nightmare. the most enjoyable part of that job was when i quit – less

Good concept, poor management
Chef (Current Employee), SavannahApril 6, 2014
Pros: the company as a whole is a great company.
Cons: poor management
They tell you a bunch of things you want to hear, they do not promote within, and the pay is terrible for the amount of work you do. The Savannah location isn't worth the trouble!

stay on your toes
route driver (Former Employee), fayetteville, ncApril 3, 2014
Pros: competitive pay, great benefits
Cons: management, long hours, pay docking grade system, unprofessionalism in the office
the work day starts early, you could easily pull more than 12 hours on the route.
this was my first experience in a truly corporate setting, having my first company being bought out by them, and my employment being furthered with them.
there is a high turn over rate in this particular branch, and management is very stern and threatening. training is – more... very poor, and you're pretty much left to the wolves.
however, if you can get in the good graces of management, maintain your numbers and keep all conversation strictly professional, you might be okay.
the best part of the job was being on the route, and not having anyone constantly breathe down your neck--the pay and benefits were surprisingly well too.
the hardest part of the job was being held accountable for factors out of your control--being told to perform one way, and it turn out to be wrong. and have to answer for it. management is also the biggest flaw in the branch--never being able to truly explain what your sales, inventory, and spoilage numbers are. or, the correct way to perform expectations that they themselves are unclear of. – less

Eurest Services
Mailroom (Former Employee), Cambridge, MAMarch 21, 2014
Pros: minimal supervision, nice clients to assist
Cons: over-worked due to co-workers lack of team-work and managements lack of management, low pay, total lack of team-work, co-workers watching youtube while you bust your rump
I worked in a service/admin role for a client of Eurest Services.
I worked mailroom. I also had to cover for shipping & receiving when a team member went out on medical leave

The manager of this particular team I was on was awful.
She liked to hide in her office and watch the team go up in smoke.

Revolving door situation. Compass Group & Eurest are – more... having quite a bit of an identity crisis. – less

Cooking was fun
Shift Leader (Former Employee), Springfield, MOMarch 20, 2014
The management style of the compass group was dealt in favoritism they only allowed non student workers to get more hours even if the students availability allowed them to work more hours. The typical work day was ok with the people that you work with. Nothing is really hard about the job other than dealing with management.

Not family friendly, people get unfairly promoted
Patient flow coordinator (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCMarch 16, 2014
Pros: good benefits, decent pay
Cons: not family friendly, a lot of favoritism and nepotism
This job is very stressful. It is a call center environment where you take calls from multiple hospitals from a nursing staff that is very rude and blame you for every problem. The management staff is clueless, they expect you to work miracles when it's short staffed. Turnover is ridiculous because this job can be too much for some people. The analogy – more... I use is that they give you a slice of bread and expect you to feed 5000 people. You basically have to be a man, Caucasian, related to someone or screwing someone to get ahead in this company. You get written up or occurrences for every little thing. The supervisors are just little drones for the management staff and will snitch on you about every mistake you make in a heartbeat. Many deserving people have been passed over for promotions while clueless brown nosers move up. DO NOT APPLY FOR THIS JOB!! You'll get greater satisfaction flipping burgers. – less

worst management ever
Cook (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OHMarch 15, 2014
Pros: hours
Cons: everything else
This company has a contract at the P&G building in downtown Cincinnati. The staff, hours and insurance benefits are great! Thats where the good things end. The management is a joke. They micro manage everything and can'teven perform the jobs themselves. They threaten employees when things go wrong.

Overall a fine place to work.
Floating Chef Manager (Former Employee), King of Prussia, PaMarch 7, 2014
Pros: close to home/great client/great staff
Cons: long hours/ last minute caterings/ multiple buildings to service with a limited staff
I would arrive for work around 5:00 a.m. to open the café. I was responsible for turning on all the equipment and lights. Checking my e-mail for any new catering requests or other issues. Counting out the cash drawers for the cashiers. Prepare breakfast including baking fresh muffins ,scones and croissants. Greet the staff and go over production for – more... the day. Supervise breakfast and prepare the entrée and sides for lunch service. Take the register readings after breakfast. Make sure all stations are cleaned and in order before the lunch service. Supervise the lunch service. Take the lunch readings, count all the cash and take the deposit to the bank. Check out all the staff's stations before they leave. Call in any orders for the next day. Check and respond to any e-mails/ catering. Check the kitchen and front of house. Turn off all equipment/lights and leave for the day around 4:00 - 4:30 p.m.
My staff and co-workers were great!
The hardest part of the job was dealing with all the catering (5K-20K a week) with 5 full time employees plus myself.
The most enjoyable part is always seeing and hearing the overwhelming positive feedback on the quality of the food we produced. – less

Never say anything to Work Place Hotline about your supervisors unethical behavior(supposed to be confidential) you do that and that will be the end of your career there. So many rules broken by district managers and above.
