The Compass Group Reviews

Low pay, definitely not a living wage. A disgruntled co-worker made me feel unsafe after threatening me and management did nothing about it. Little room for change, a corporate structure. They do some things better than others. Definitely better ethics and quality than a fast food job, but that's not saying much! Overall, for a larger company, I'd like to see better wage increases over time for employees that stay on. Not nickel and dime-ing hard-working employees that have been there a while and shouldn't have to work overtime or a second job every week to make ends meet.

Compass Group is a mother company that is an umbrella for over 30 food Service companys. The employee benefits are awesome and plentiful. They offer an employee benefits hub offering a wide range of discounts. The company has flexible hours where anybody can find the right position for them selves. Also the potential for a raise is renewed annually!
My first position with Compass after my ten plus years in retail. I am a Hospitality Supervisor and feel like my work is fulfilling by working with the best in the industry, along with the challenges at one of the world biggest arboretums, Longwood Gardens. Compass Group and Restaurant Associates are a combination of Hospitality and Food Service brands that work with big accounts like Longwood Gardens, Google or The Met.
