Productive and a fun place to work.
Lead Supervisor /Cook (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCOctober 11, 2013
My typical day at work is getting to work 30 minutes early, preparing a healthy breakfast and lunch for my students, meeting with staff every morning , checking calendar for food ordering and safety of my staff. And what I learn on my job is I strive to get the job done and try to finish the job faster or better. My co-worker where very good workers – more... I never had any problems with any of them. As Management stress and pressure are often cause by lack of communication or clear understanding of task . I make sure to communicate with my staff so that we're on the same page that way we all know what to expect and things don't get tense. The hardest part of the job was keeping the cafeteria clean as possible and keep my staff safe. The most enjoyable part of the job was going to work and seeing my students and keeping a smile on their face. – less

Assistant Food Service Director / Director (Former Employee), Oldsmar, FL- Eden,TX & Eloy, AZOctober 2, 2013
Pros: job growth, opportunities, the confidence that was plased in your abalities.
Cons: working in corrections has a number of difficulties, lock downs, building schedules, requirements for obtaining the job, being locked in.
Compass took good care of me and those who strived for growth. A demanding position, with high expectations, with rewards for a job well done and even the efforts you put forward.
I learned a great deal, traveled, and was well taken care of by my managers. Working in Corrections as a contractor, your job difficulties varied depending on the site you – more... were dealing with; CCA is not a very "team" oriented company. – less
