Executive Chef (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – November 21, 2018
Compass Group is a great company to work for, they have good benefits and work life balance. Both of the district managers I have worked for have been amazing and so helpful. The two General Managers I have worked for have been disappointments. They don't care about anyone but themselves and have no work ethic.
Grill chef (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 20, 2018
I worked for Compass as a grill chef since 2009. I started out at $10.00. after 8-9 years I was just barely making $11.50. Thats just a $1.50 more than when I started. I was looked over for advancement. .
Dish Washer (Former Employee) – Limestone, ME – November 15, 2018
Average days at work were okay. Co-workers and supervisors were easy to get along with. The work itself isn't bad, but the way that this company manages their employees is simply wrong. They will back unethical behavior of their managers (such as discrimination) to the extent that even their HR representatives don't take human relation complaints as a valid grievance. If you do try to report the behavior of a manager, be prepared to be accused of having an ulterior motive or a vengeful attitude. Also, expect to do things that aren't in your job description. I was cooking in the kitchen more than doing dishes in the dishroom.
Should be 0 stars.
Free food, an in-the-trenches sort of bond with your co-workers
Line Cook (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – November 10, 2018
As a hourly employee, this is a good company to work for because of the benefits and comfortable and safe working conditions. The major problem with this company, at least the division named Eurest, is that it is near impossible to move up as a line cook. They do not develop their entry-level talent. If fact, the better you are on the line, the less likely you are to move up. Total catch-22. I would advise anyone applying to Compass to come in as at least a sous chef if you want to work for a salary. Otherwise either work in their corporate office or forget it altogether.
Health insurance and paid days off.
Lack of career advancement opportunities for line cooks.
I enjoyed working at Compass. I was thoroughly trained, was encouraged to ask for clarification and questions in general, and had morning and afternoon breaks. Escalated issues were stressful but had the opportunity to request help from senior staff. I learned a great deal and became confident in my position.
Grill Cook (Current Employee) – Monroeville, PA – October 23, 2018
Work is great although there is little to no room for advancement and the pay is pretty low compared to how much it cost to live and you still live pay check to pay check. The management team is great but some of the older people that have worked there for a while are a bit miserable at times. Its very great to interact with the people that work in the building and finding out their cultures.
Cake Decorator/Baker (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – October 11, 2018
I'm not sure if this applies to all Compass groups. I work on a banks campus. We work early morning to early afternoon, we have off weekends and all bank holidays. The only down side is that there is not to much room for growth since we are limited to size. Also I wished they paid more. The company is great, they are laid back and cool. They do run a background check at the banks request, I'm not sure if they hire felons or not. You get to eat extremely cheap. Its 8 dollars a week for breakfast and lunch, half off for other things.
HRM (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – October 10, 2018
I enjoyed my time at Compass and would recommend this company. During my time at Compass in Memphis, Lisa A, Rich S, Bryan H, Arthur, Sharon and Jeff made everyday an adventure. The staff was always willing to go the extra mile for me and the patients. What an incredible experience that my job was to take care of the people who feed the sick.
Assoicate (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – October 10, 2018
This company is dwindling and has over the last few years. It's a great job if you can get in the doors. They offer you less hours currently great for parents with kids in school. They are typically operational during the day and you get weekends off. Overtime offered.

UNIT MANAGER (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – September 26, 2018
I had the opportunity to work at the Washington Navy Yard in a multi concept atmosphere. The staff was diverse and a pleasure to work with. The management staff was well versed in the various concepts and we were able to conduct a lot of cross training.
Terrific culture that is engaging and places high value on relationships. Demanding fast pace where you can make an impact. Rewarding because you are allowed to contribute and implement your ideas alongside others.
Line Cook and Prep Cook (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – August 19, 2018
I really liked working with this company, the management was good, they worked with you on scheduling. the co workers were good. I liked working in a College environment over all i really enjoyed my employment there!
OPTICS MANAGER (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – August 14, 2018
Many different accounts if you pair up with the right on you will loce your job but if not you will not it will be pure heck. Account managers are not trained properly in diversity and business ethics.
Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Norwalk,CT. – August 5, 2018
From experience, Morrison really should screen possible managers. Maybe give a probation period for management. Possibly get feedback from employees that are in direct communication with.... Have a. mandatory meeting monthly with all employees and management. Meetings make it. ( celebrate Birthdays,.Compass employee aniversaries. Open communication with staff and employees. Management must, and I say must give their worker a feeling and sense of inclusiveness.
