Assistant Director of Dining Services (Former Employee) – Indianola, IA – June 9, 2016
There was never a work- life balance. In the 4 years I worked for this company, there were 18 different managers. There were a couple good ones that valued the associates but most generally they only looked for what you did wrong. They never had a positive attitude. Never got the training you need to do your job correctly. I was even asked by the General Manager of I knew how to do a task that I want qualified for and when I told him no, he said "Yeah, me either" . You have to work your tail off to even be considered for a promotion and the only reason you finally get it is because no- one else wanted it or applied for it. When the company lost the contract, they did not notify the employees. Instead we heard it from the students. The turn over rate is extremely high and I had to cover many positions. Therfore I worked 6 and sometimes 7 days a week to cover the many call ins. Being a salaried manager isn't worth the hassel you go through, especially from upper management. I notice how everyone else gets free meals, we were limited on what we could eat for our lunch unless we paid for it.

Terrible place to work.......work you like a slave Management was nonexistent The food was terrible Cook's don't flush the toilet after using it. Don't get paid properly for overtime The dish room is smelly, nasty full with fruit flies The fountain drinks and salad bar has fruit flies flying around it. It's a revolving door for employee......it's not worth it..... They provide uniforms.....but you may or may not get it I feel for the Boeing employees who have to eat the food at the "Hub"
Benefits are awesome.....but not worth it
Everything you could think off....not a good place to work
Pay is decent until you realize how many hours you're working.
Route Driver (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – May 22, 2016
I worked for this company for 10+ years. It started off a decent place to work and you could make decent money for not having a college degree. Then a few years later "higher ups" started making change after change to "better" the company. They ended up making the route drivers job harder and longer and most drivers pay actually decreased. The job has a way of keeping you there because you feel like your making a lot of money till you realize your working 50-60 hrs a week and 6 days a week. I finally got smart and left. It was one of the best decisions I've made in my life. My last few years working for the company were miserable and everyone that I know that's left are glad that they did. If you're thinking about working here, do yourself a favor and DON'T DO IT.
Customer Service Manager (Former Employee) – Blountville, TN – May 19, 2016
i worked almost 30 years for this company. i started out as a route man and moved in to supervision several years later., It was a very physical job and i abused my body for many years leading me to find something else that i could be more of an asset with my mind and ability to problem solve versus 12 to 14 hours on a route truck training new people, filling in for vacations or running the route due to someone quitting. This is a very demanding job and the turn over for route personnel was quite high.
dependable job, good benefits
changes in upper management, physically too demanding after all the years ive worked this job

Employee (Current Employee) – Anywhere – May 8, 2016
The worse experience of my life, hands down. Everything about this company sucks, the people, management, everything!! Unless you like working 12 hours a day and keeping a stupid smile on your face, stay away, I am not lying.
Executive Chef. Food Service Director (Current Employee) – CT – April 20, 2016
Compass is a huge international company, well organized and a great alternative to the restaurant industry. I have had a good time and learned a lot. Senior Management is great. Can move around throughout the companies associated with compass.
Chef in Training (Former Employee) – Tomball, TX – April 16, 2016
I loved my time with Compass Group. I was taught how to do my job and everything was explained if I didn't understand. They truly care about the employee and if the employee is liking their job. They offer additional training and classes that they pay for of your choice. They had respect for the customer not only to their faces but behind their backs as well. Very top notch place to work. I would work there again in a heartbeat!!
