    I have been working at Compass Group as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    There are some great managers and staff who can make shifts enjoyable. If you work hard your efforts can be recognised.

    Cons

    The hours are not nice, they remove your "break time" from your pay whether you take the break or not. Most of he time you won't take the full break as you are understaffed or other staff is incompetent. The pay is also for horrendous for the physical exertion you put out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of inadequate staff and reward those who come in and work hard for minimal pay.

    I worked at Compass Group part-time

    Pros

    Easy work, greater than minimum wage pay. Friendly atmosphere to be a part of. Can say yes or no to hours that are available to work.

    Cons

    Limited chance of progressing upwards in the company if you are only on a casual contract. Some locations for working can be awkward to get to if you do not have youre own transport.

    I worked at Compass Group

    Pros

    Weekly payment. Zero hours contract was great in that some weeks I could work up to 90 hours over 7 days and earn over £500 in a week. There is a genuine young friendly vibe.

    Cons

    Poor training. Work is never guaranteed. Antisocial hours.
