General Assistant (Part-time) in Dover, Kent
on 2 August 2022
Fun to work with
Good company to work for but not enough hours and and not enough wages but good a enough for a single person. You interact with the residents on a daily basis and offer entertainment at weekends. It can be fast pase at times but are supported when needed. There is always someone there if needed

Stay clear
Don’t think I have anything positive to say about my job whilst I was there. Was constantly stressed due to short staff and no one wanted to jump in and help. Get blamed for things that are way out of you’re pay grade and your actual duties. Management only care about themselves. You are just a number
Bar Staff in Chester, Cheshire
on 8 August 2022
Don't do their private events! Managers are belittling but most staff are okay.
I enjoyed my race days as the team leaders on race days are friendly. However, on private events, I was belittled: talked about as if I wasn't there, and had a tray shoved in my face by my supervisor to "go collect the glasses" although my job was behind the bar and they had glass collectors. I was asked rudely "Are you sure you're a bartender?" as I asked how the tills (which I had NOT worked on) work and what was the house wine as I didn't have wine and mainly worked on serving drinks while another worked the till on the race days.

Cafe general manager in Milton Keynes

very difficult place to work
The job itself is fine, hard work as involves cooking as well as management duties. The problem with the job is that you are working for two companies in effect, and compass needs to keep it wage bill down in order to make money on the contract. This means that you never have enough staff to do the job properly unfortunately.
