    I worked at Compass Group part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours for students.
    Friendly work environment.
    Good training provided.

    Cons

    Management can be slow to consider things that need to be put in place to improve the efficiency of the work.

    Advice to Management

    When your employees are asking for some time to talk about matters that are concerning them, make that time a regular slot. A scheduled 'Office time' would be beneficial.

    I worked at Compass Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was great in the beginning. The manager was great, colleagues were helpful and welcoming, plus, there's also training.

    Cons

    It was very unorganized. The manager had to quit due to problems within the company and so most of the team did as well.

    I worked at Compass Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Monday-Friday job, latest finishes were 5 pm

    Cons

    Management was awful, as myself I felt as if I was being bullied day to day by a certain manager. If you are going for a job here be warned that the management has no sympathy when it comes to certain things, had to work my birthday even though enough staff was on to cover. Break times were very strict if you were not back on the time you pretty much got yelled at.

    Advice to Management

    Get manners and get proper management because the one they had, when I was there, can't be called a manager.

    I have been working at Compass Group part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Casual working environment. Flexibility, no obligation to work. Provides ability to serve customer on a basic level.

    Cons

    Casual working environment could be a downside for some. Apparent rules are not adhered to by all. Limited usefulness in developing skills.

    Advice to Management

    Some colleagues are obnoxiously rude, as you need high levels of staff it’s understandable that not every employee will be competent, but often I have worked alongside less than preferable individuals.
