Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Horrible management/supervisors. Sodexo promotions were given on a “personal opinion” when it came to advancements within the work place, this means if you are best friends with the office/management or spent enough time with them you would more than likely get a promotion then someone in their own department that is more than qualified for the job. Supervisors got away with doing nothing and talking inappropriately about their best employees just because they wouldn’t pick up the jobs the supervisors weren’t doing, which leads to staff turn over. People blowing numbers get promoted in jobs they know nothing about. Good employees let leave because they do not care about you.

Cons

Overall Experience

Personally I would never work for this company again, originally was meant to come on as full time. But that never happened so I was signed on as casual. Where I learnt quickly you can not trust anyone when learning as mistakes are not acceptable with this company. Management is disorganised and rude with green staff.

Great Place to Work

I’ve enjoyed my time with Sodexo, great team on-site and everyone is always there to help. We transitioned from 2:1 swings to 8&6 which is great to spend more time at home with the family

purple circle alive and well

Don't waste your time. Plenty of jobs for greenies in the mining sector. Project managers just interested in getting their bonus and push people to the limit for an appalling pay and roster.

Nice company to work for.

Pay was above minimum wage. Got weekends off and had a good work/life balance. Management was always organised and helped with any concerns I had. Low staff turnover.

Good company to work for

It was very good company to work for, if you get job interview please take the job if it's offered. All my bosses where very supportive and plenty of training. Good luck! All staff members where friendly and supported of each other if needed help, hours where great as well

Good place to work great supervisor and manager in my area

I have been working for Sodexo for about 7 months as a cleaner I have found my time here pretty good great people and site although I read the reviews prior to starting and was a bit unsure on the company from the reviews In saying that there would be some bad managers and supervisors in some areas of the company I guess like any company . My supervisor and manager are really nice easy going and positive people contactable anytime and my supervisor is very good at replenishing cleaning products, gloves and cloths when needed which key to the position .The pay is good for a cleaner and always on time and the work load is fair and not unreasonable I would definitely recommend working for Sodexo over a contract cleaning company .

Pros

Good team environment

Cons

None here

Good work mates disorganised and a purple circle of management

Don’t expect much from Sodexo management and poor pay from HR to payroll will blindside you with deception and lies think twice before taking a position with Sodexo they will promise you the world and pay chicken feed in return they think only profits before safety or employees but will talk up in front of clients workers are pushed into making bad decisions And management crucifies them for it.

Pros

You have a job

Cons

Poor management and pay

Poor workplace values and a waste of time working for Sodexo. Over worked and under appreciated.

If your thinking of going for a job at Sodexo then forget about it. You will be underpaid when and if you actually get paid, over worked every week, unappreciated, chewed up and spat out. No matter what you do you won't be recognised for your efforts. The recognition benefits are bs.No regard for employee health or daily needs just the bottom line. Hence the high turnover of staff. You will be screwed for every penny but expected to do more and more. You would be better off picking up rubbish on the freeways.Check your employee contracts as they will slip in the fine print about being overworked and underpaid. Whipped to work.Management have big titles but little idea about what they are doing. Not sure how they get dressed in the morning. Not sure where they are found but it's amazing watching them fake it before they kinda make it!If you value employee benefits and a good workplace culture then stay away.Work for anyone else.

Pros

Honestly.... There aren't any pros about Sodexo.

Cons

Unappreciated, long hours, rubbish pay, incompetent management, HR is non existent, payroll is like it's the first time they have done it. What a laugh of a workplace.

Get ready

Massive amount of winging between staff. They dropped the wages considerably years ago. It’s 15 days on and 6 days off you are completely exhausted by the end of your few weeks and it takes 5 days to get over it you have 1 day of feeling good again then back into.

Pros

Free food

Cons

Long 12 hour days
