Supervisor/Team Leader (Former Employee) – Bradford, West Yorkshire – 17 January 2018
Nice and reliable coworkers but management very poor. Lack of comunication between manager and the rest of the team. Big favoritism and not treating everyone fairly. Always short of staff but manager doesn't care about.
Catering Assistant (Current Employee) – Stockport – 14 January 2018
I am currently working for Compass Group as a catering assistant which I have been since 1st march 2015. Working for this company I have heightened my skills of leadership, team working and also working on my own, supporting other members around me when it’s needed. Together with this I have learnt new skills such as dealing with complaints when the customer was dissatisfied with the company’s product and offering different alternatives which might suit the customer better.
Friendly and busy place to work, enjoyed building great relationships with customers.
Oxfordshire (Former Employee) – Oxfordshire – 10 January 2018
I worked for compass part-time for nearly 4 years while I was a mum to 2 very young children, i worked in a prison staff mess which included trips into the prison itself as part of my daily work routine.
The biggest pro was the hours, as a single mum they fitted round school hours.
Working within a prison enviroment does have its risks.

Mobile Vending Operator (Current Employee) – Anywhere – 21 December 2017
I've not long been employed here but I regret applying. Organisation is an absolute shambles!
Driving the van is good as you are left alone to work to your own pace, but once the call outs start you are screwed. The pay is minimum wage (£7.50 per hour) with the amount of driving and work that is piled on you it's poor. Office don't read your routes for the day and demand a call out within 24hrs, so you have to find a way of getting to the site and time. Start time is 6am, but most sites don't open till 8 or 9, neither does the stock room. So your waiting around a lot for either parking space or the site to open.
Kitchen Porter (Former Employee) – Bromley, Greater London – 5 December 2017
I went for a trial working day as a kitchen porter at Compass in Bromley . The chef was a French female who told me that I would get paid for the trial working day. I worked my socks off hoping that I would get paid for the trial day. I kept on calling them but no body came back to me. I am still waiting for my payment. Avoid working for this company.
Hospitality Staff (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 25 November 2017
A typical day of work would just be cleaning up lounges, serving customers and then being required to do things outside of your job description - and if i did not do so then i would be sent home. I enjoyed the banter between employees at the workplace but management was poor and seemed like they did not care.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Peterborough city hospital – 20 November 2017

Manager (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 19 November 2017
Invest in people who are willing to invest in the company. Management need to have more of an understanding of the operational side of the business - financial and client relationship is important however they do lose site of the day to day operation and teams that are running and are part of the business.
Area Manager (Current Employee) – United Kingdom – 9 November 2017
A typical day at work is speak every morning with AM to ensure every unit is covered . I have learned that if you do not communicate with the whole team things get missed. Management are the main support to ensure everyday runs smoothly The hardest part of my job is having time to complete the job suffiently The most enjoyable part of the job is when the unit runs smoothly paperwork up to standard and staff are vhappy.
Thoroughly enjoyable workplace environment, strong team relationships. Team support and management very helpful and supportive. Fast paced work, so very little time to have a break, however there is always something to be doing. The atmosphere is great on a match day and when there are concerts. Can have the odd difficult customer but overall it is a fantastic place to work.
Same over and over day in day out! Management very poor. No duty of care! One rule for one and another rule for another! Not a nice place to work, cou
CSA (Former Employee) – England – 23 October 2017
You can have the best workforce team and all it takes is a bad manager to bring everybody down! I saw labels being switched on out of date meats! Not a nice place to work! As long as management are ok then that’s all that matters!! Avoid!!!!
Depressing, backstabbing and that was mainly the manager!
