Do not work for compass group

Company does not care about you or your mental healthy. Management sit around do nothing. Compass does not spend money most of the time you have no tools, chemicals or machines to do your jobs properly which in the end will cause injuries. Compass group approach to safety is one of the lowest in the world. Don't think for 1 second this company will look after you. They do not care about you or any of your problems and they do not want to help you. Be a better worker they are very very happy to replace you with a new worker that has no idea what they are in for.I worked here for 10 months in three different roles The two biggest problems compass group faces very very poor mismanagement favouritism and lack of spending money to make workers safer. Penny pinching to make CEOs richer sitting back in their chairs laughing their way to the bank. At your expense.

Pros

Food, shower, bed, electricity flights paid for

Cons

No Wi-Fi, very slow congested 4G. No work life balance. Very unhealthy food being served at meal times long

Supportive Company.

There is a lot of training and support. The kitchen is state of the art with a big emphasis on safety. They even had anti cut gloves. Plenty of uniforms if you need it. There is free food and opportunities for learning new skills.

Pros

Free food, friendly staff, excellent management

Cons

Only during the school term

Definitely a no no

Pick well before you come to this company. The managers are clowns running the show as a guess work. No experience is clearly visible from their end. Turnover is big but the attitude of the managers are they are willing to loose staff as long as the money factor is satisfied. Safety is a show only and becomes irrelevant at the top position as what matters to them is getting the job done. Personal grudge is big as a major factor to me and the relation with the manager. Communication is weak and system is a failure.

Pros

None

Cons

Everything. Expectation is long hours for free.

A company that really values its people

If you’re looking for career growth then this is the company.If you don’t think your manager supports you, speak to your recruitment team or HR rep.Compass Group recognises hard work and a great attitude.

Pros

Career growth

Worst place to work and toxic culture.

This company has the most toxic culture from top to bottom. You have to say yes to every demands of the management or you get shown the door. They do not practise what they preach so doing the preliminary online assessment is an absolute waste . Absolute bunch of bullies. The higher management curses and treats you like dirt. They are all about their bonuses and openly tell staff that they are lucky to have jobs.

Pros

None

Cons

Stressful and no work life balance

no support, HR team was a joke, no training

I worked for this company for over 2 years. I was bullied by management and was given no opportunity by HR to have it rectified. They live in a "boys club" mentality so as a woman in a management role it was extremely difficult to even be heard. there is no opportunity for movement within the company. They manage you out the door if they don't like you. I will never work for this company ever again and i wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Horrible from the time I started to the time I quit, just HORRIBLE.

Pros

none

Do not waste your time

I am currently working as a chef at Warabrook age care Newcastle looking for a new position. Poor management can’t even order the right or enough ingredients for the days production then tells you to improvise with the ingredients you have. Some kitchen equipment is in Poor condition and the rate of pay is very low 22.75 per hour for a qualified chef

Pros

Day work

Cons

Poor hourly rate

Special place

Barrow island is a great place to work. hard work but rewarding High standards good management support fun activities to do at work and through the camp
Was this review helpful?

Unique fun workplace

A typical day at work begins with "pre-start", a run down on the expected events for the day ie: number of clients to be expected which could include training groups on site or away up to 300 people. Maintanence or safety issues that have been reported and these sessions are always hosted by management. Chefs would then give handover to those starting shift and there would be discussion on what prep needed to be completed prior to service or for the next day, each team (breakfast/lunch or dinner) then began their prep constantly collaborating on the menu and ensuring each team member was on top of their tasks. I have learnt that as a team we are all responsible for the completion of tasks safely and in a timely manner helping one another where necessary. We are all reponsible for managing the completion of shift paperwork including temperature monitoring of food and allergen reporting and all end of shift cleaning and recording. We enjoy each others company and accept that each person has unique skills to share and are happy to do so in a safe environment without harassment or prejudice.
