When you walk in the door to the kitchen, you're happily greeted by your coworkers. Everyone's always cheerful, even in the stressful situations when someone needed calls out sick. Everything I know about cooking, I've learned from the Executive Chef at Grace Ridge. I joined the kitchen alongside him in March of 2013. I've worked there for 3 years and I've loved every moment of it. I always recommend people I know to apply for a job there.

Director of Food and Nutrition Service (Former Employee) – Haymarket, VA – July 17, 2016
There was no training provided for people going into new positions. When questions were asked most times i was told to call someone else because my direct manager did not know the answers. There was no concern for employees only the bottom line.
Management Travel Support (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 9, 2015
A typical day at work is very busy, I have learned a lot about Morrison programs and financial management. I have enjoyed getting to know a diverse group of managers. The hardest part of the job is the uncerrtainity of contract managment. The most enjoyable part of the job is all the opprtunities that are available throughout the organization.
Vast opportunties for employment across all sectors of the company.
Director (Former Employee) – New Jersey – May 21, 2012
Compass as a whole is a very good company to work for, but my experience with Morrison was less than fair. There is little if any support from management. Even the client kept telling me that Morrison isn't giving enough support. I loved the client, but the negotiating skills of management flushed the contract down the toilet! One you loose the contract and are on the outside, there is no support for you. You're a number, that's it. At Morrison I learned that inorder to make it you have to know who's to kiss, when to kiss it and how to kiss it. Do 99 things right and they will hang you for that 1 mistake you made. The CEO of Morrison is a fantastic person along with some of the specialists I had the pleasure to work with, but I felt that they didn't even know the true story.
I worked as a sous Chef the management i worked with was terrible some people were treated poorly and with no respect if you were friends with the director you were good but if you were your own persons they treated you like an animal . you were expected to work 12 to 14 hours a day and were told that you were not hired to a 8 hour a day job they wanted you to have no life like them and be miserable i guess misery loves company. And as a manager you were told to treat hourly employees like dogs i felt bad that i had to do this , The only thing that is good about the company the benefits were very good the pay was okay but if you figured the hours you put in you were just above minimum wage it Wasn't worth it plus the management were very nervous and could not handle pressure and they took it out on you I'm glad i do not work for them anymore i feel better mentally . So think twice about taking a job from these people if you Don't mind being treated like a slave then take the job but you won't be your own person anymore...
Executive Chef (Current Employee) – Iowa – August 20, 2013
Morrison has no idea how to communicate with their employees. You won't see the RDO until they want to yell at you. Not a good environment for growth. I dread when upper Morrison show up.....they get rid of the management that cared and did their jobs well.
Food Service Associate (Current Employee) – Chambersburg, PA – October 9, 2014
A typical day at work can be very busy with some downtime to keep the place clean and orderly. I've learned several things in the past 8 years I've been there; I've operated a non-computerized register and a computerized register, expanded my cooking skills, and counting the register at the end of the day. Most importantly I've learned how to rotate stock and proper temperatures and storage of product. Current management takes interest in employee's and customer input on changes and product offered. All coworkers have their differences, however we work together as a team. The hardest part of the job is temporarily running out of product until delivery day. Most enjoyable part of the job making customers happy.
FOOD & NUTRITION DIRECTOR/EXECUTIVE CHEF (Former Employee) – MEMPHIS,TN. – October 14, 2014
I worked for Morrison Health care for over six years and had some good and bad experiences with this company. I was hired in has Executive Chef and moved up to Food & Nutrition Director in West Memphis,AR. The hospital eventually closed due to financial problems. I was told by my RDO at that time I would be placed at another hospital while I could post for another position when it became available. But when the hospital closed I was laid off instead. I felt betrayed and lied to by my RDO.When I needed his support he was never available. This was a Fee account and his only concerned was getting the hospital to pay its bill. Whenever I asked him for help with employee issues he only added to the problem with bad advise. My RDO never understand the issue of this account because he seldom came to the hospital; unless it was to pick-up a check for payment.
I felt alone and had on support in the last 8-10 months working at this hospital.
Supervisor of Subway at Floyd Medical Center (Former Employee) – Rome GA – November 5, 2013
While in charge over their subway franchise I worked with a small group of great people. I had the chance to get to know many of our customers since we served the same group of people every day. I learned a lot about customer service. I would say the most challenging part of the job was that I had to report to three company supervisors, Morrison Management Floyd Medical Center and Subway corporate each some times having differing ideals on how the store was to be ran. It was challenging to meet the needs of all three at times but very beneficial to my experience. I was in charge of employee training evaluation and counseling. I also tracked all inventory sales and labor costs.
Manager (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – April 28, 2011
Job responsibilities are not communicated, tools for success are not provided, promotions are given based on buddy system rather than experience, qualifications and performance. Managers are not given a good work-life balance and often burn out.
Clinical Manager overseeing all operations of the diet office as well as carrying a patient caseload in a long term care environment
Clinical Nutrition Manager (Former Employee) – Waltham, MA – October 20, 2012
A typical day was again performing various duties: I had a patient caseload so I needed to go see clients each day and chart on their nutrition status; I also had to oversee patient trayline and/or conduct test trays on occasion. I was an assistant to the Foodservice Director, producing daily and weekly reports and analytics. The management was very detailed on how they liked things done and we had a challenging client to satisfy so I gained worthwhile experience in client relations and sales. My co-workers worked well as a team. The hardest part of the job was satisfying sometimes unrealistic expectations and demands. The most enjoyable part of the job was that the management did recognize a job well done and that did feel good.
performing various duties each day to keep things interesting
satisfying a client with unrealistic, and at times, unachievable, goals

Service Manager (Current Employee) – Rhode Island – March 16, 2013
Morrison offers no support to accounts that need it. Our RDO only visits once a month when our client has asked over and over again to see him more. Because he is never here our Director is free to do what he wants. He waters down what we are giving the client because he wants to make his bonus and everyone else can be damned.
When we hold functions and need extra help it's like pulling teeth to get some. The Regional Executive Chef said he would be visiting once a month but no one has seen him in over 5.
