Housekeeper-St. Vincent Hospital (Current Employee) – Evansville, IN – March 11, 2019
At first everyone was really friendly, but then as more people were hired, there was a lot of people using your personal life against you. The pay doesn't suffice the cost of living in this area and they don't work well around some pre scheduled events.
Benefits, staff on units are friendly, free meals on certain holidays

Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – January 22, 2019
I love my work family been there for almost 6years so many managers and supervisors came so things began to change and it was very frustrating no communication I'm trying supervisors but other than that it was really nice
I highly recommend you never apply to this company.
Patient Transportation (Former Employee) – Novi Michigan – December 22, 2018
Low pay very hard job no raises or very little raises maybe like $0.19 a year letting employees get away with things that the supervisors liked and the ones they didn't were turned in. Management would excuse things like patients that are sleeping on the job with a suicidal patient no write-up nothing. And the next person will get written up for something extremely irrelevant such as is not clocking out for the end of the day.
My coworkers, and I love working with patients
HR awful, pay was awful, they work you like a slave
Environmental Services (Former Employee) – Mobile, AL – December 19, 2018
Environmental service Management is terrible don't know how to talk to you any kind of way supervisors will lie on on you just to save they job, when you go to management to talk to them about the supervisors they do not want to hear it the director is no better oval round just don't go even though the pay is good too much stress for the pay
Associate (Current Employee) – Appleton, WI – December 11, 2018
A typical day at work is others watching every move you make so they can tell the managers how you're doing. I learned that these people thrive off of putting their employees down. Management is just doing what they're told to do and that is to tell you everything you're doing is wrong. Workplace culture is "cut-throat", fellow employees look for opportunities to pull the rug out from under you. The hardest part of this job is trying to keep enjoyment and passion you had at first. The most enjoyable part of the job is their coffee is great and it's free!
You get a check
If you like being put down, this is the company to work for.
Basically this job you start in the kitchen building trays in a semi assembly line set up, you take these trays in a big moving food cart to different parts of the hospital (depending what area you work for the day), and pass this food out to patients who are staying at the hospital. This is an all day job and you must take orders for each meal and according to the paitent's diet. In between meal periods is when you discuss meal choices and also do stock for the paitent pantry on that floor. This place is good if you are VERY adaptable and keep to yourself. A lot of workers like to cause drama that management ignores, resulting in a lot of favoritism and bullying of workers who aren't in the select "clique". This also applies to that not a lot of workers will help you out even if you're struggling unless they feel like helping/look good for management. The long 12 hour shifts makes it hard for you to care for a family or have off days for your own personal life. Moving up is hard unless a position higher up opens, which you must push hard to qualify for. This is a good job for someone that needs something temporary, but isn't good long term unless people like you.

SITE HR TRAINING MANAGER (Current Employee) – Murfreesboro, TN – September 3, 2018
TouchPoint Support Services, a sector of Compass Group, is a company driven on training and education for it's associates to grow or find their career. As with most other companies, this company does have "great" ideas from corporate that are not well executed. And of course corporate's expectations are slightly skewed from reality. However, the company as a whole is a great company to work for. They continually provide stretch assignments for those wanting to progress. One pro that I value the most is work-life balance and I can definitely say this company provides that.
Work-life balance, PTO for salaried associates, Training, Career Growth
Housekeeper (Current Employee) – Mobile, AL – August 31, 2018
Be at work on time and do your best. I work with the most intelligent understanding supervisor. They are very fair. I enjoy working with my co worker. My work days are never the same some days are more challenging but I still get through them.
Was working 8.5 hour shifts, but was recently forced into working 13 hour shifts. No career growth. Work weekends even when promised rotating weekends. Hours have been cut and no new hires coming in. Very fast-paced. Will take pay from your check if you get a break or not. Lack of communication from manager. Pay raise every year, but not much.
Housekeeper (Current Employee) – Novi, MI – August 10, 2018
Light cleaning of facilities and patient rooms. Collect and Store cleaning carts for staff. Able to stay on task while preforming the jobs in a timely manner. Interacting with patients, family members and medical staff.
Food Service Worker/Utility (Current Employee) – Evansville, IN – July 14, 2018
Worked in kitchen at St. Vincent's. Managers don't hesitate to lie and pretend they're going to help out. My manager refuses to give me more than a 2% raise despite the ridiculous amount of shifts I covered that year and the fact that I was the only one running the dish room. Upon trying to move up to a simple supervisor position, they ignore me for a solid 3 months, despite having already hired the new supervisor. They didn't tell me anything until well after the new supervisor was working. Now I'm up for it again and they offer me a .50 cent raise, bumping me up to the point that a new supervisor would earn. What a joke. 2.5 years of blood, sweat, and tears, only to see it wiped away and told I must earn another raise next year. The highest possible raise is 3%, but they tell me I can earn 5% if I do okay. Difficult to believe. The one major bright side is that when working utility positions, I can essentially do whatever I want to at this point and no one's paying any attention whatsoever. Unbelievable how management's gotten so far without getting fired.
Long breaks, lax management
Management lies, high achievers get nothing, low achievers tend to be favored by management
Team Support (Former Employee) – Murfreesboro, TN – May 26, 2018
Upper management is great - very understanding and willing to work with you. The problem is with direct management, especially on the retail side, which will take advantage of your availability and throw you into different positions without proper training. They will also change your schedule completely to fit these new positions, most of the time without telling you this.
The retail customers are by and large great, except for the few who treat you like garbage (and, because it's in a hospital, these are the nurses and techs who are your daily regulars). Coworkers are similarly great except for a select few who leave their work for you to complete and make your life complicated.
On the up side, you can go to management about these problems. On the down side, they won't actually do anything about it until it affects the money they're making or you quit.
Work/life balance is probably the only actually good thing about this job, and that only applies half the time. When they change your schedule without warning, they expect you to cancel any plans you may have made that conflict with the job.
