some great people, management is useless
Bartender/Stand leader (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB7 December 2017
theres so much potential to make working for centerplate a great experience, but if the long standing managers continue to just screw up everything they do as they have been for 10 years, then nothing will ever change. there have been some great people to work with over the years, but there have been more useless, unmotivated, incompetent ones. management doesnt care about the employee, doesnt take constructive criticism well, and doesnt think anything through in the way of new products and booth layout. training of new staff is very poor, burden is pushed onto existing staff to train new people.
Pros
seeing events for free
Cons

Great place to work
DECK SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB10 November 2017
Centerplate is a great company to work for, sometimes can be a little unorganized, but is an all around great experience. They have lots of staff so they can easily accommodate for any days that you cannot work, and will get the work schedule out for up to a month in advance.
Pros
Discounted meals, great staff

Okay place to work for a first time.
Concession Cashier (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC14 March 2017
No training and more like a trial thru fire. However, the head cashier was nice and willing to walk me through it. This is a decent place to work, Break room is cramped at all events.
Pros
Free lunch, coworkers are great and friendly.
Cons
Not enough hours, no employee discounts.

Line Cook (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC26 August 2016
Show up a couple hours before the event would begin.Get your stand set up and your stations prepped up. Doors open and you serve people till the event starts, it's quiet for a while. Half time is insane but you get through it, you clean up and you go home. after the event ends.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
dealing with thousands of people

SUCKY LAZY Coworkers, No Breaks,
food expitetor (Former Employee) –  santa clara24 February 2016
This place is for those who are on the dole and can't find work elsewhere. Ex Cons, Mentally challenged, the worst get jobs here. Some work hard...others hardly work. Rude co-workers, managers, supervisors who are rude and disrespectful. You are lucky to get lunch and they don't give breaks AT ALL. Can't get transferred around to other venues inside the stadium. And NO ONE likes cleaning the stand at the end of the night.
Oh, and you can ONLY eat a hot dog or soda even though they toss out 3/4 of the food every night. horrible waste here!
Pros
free parking, ok uniform, 8+ hrs each gig
Cons
no breaks, sometimes you get lunch

An alright workplace
Cashier (Current Employee) –  Halifax, NS21 December 2015
It is sometimes very unorganized but if you want a job where you can make about $40-$50 a shift any night that works well for you, on top of a normal job or school, this job is probably a good decision. Most people are welcoming and if you can learn on the go it'll work well for you.
Pros
You get a 50% discount on food before the game and sometimes free food after the event.
Cons
The hours are mostly at night, sometimes they don't stock your area, so get some heat from customers

Great place to work. Good Teamwork atmosphere.
MTS Centre - Deck Supervisor (Casual) (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB29 April 2015
A typical day at work starts at the check in where you are given specifics of the particular days events and what is expected of you. I go into my area and check to make sure each booth is ready. I work with each booth leader to make sure they have everything they need and that the inventory levels are correct. During the event I am available to the booths to help fix any problems that may arise, and order anything they need during business. At the end of the event I make sure that all booths are clean and locked up. I work with the check out team to make sure all inventory counts are correct at the end of the night.
Management are very organized and clear about what they expect of employees. Schedules are done well enough in advance so you know when you are working. Most of my coworkers are great and they all know how to do their job. The hardest part of the job is to try and motivate a few number of the staff that are not able to be motivated. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you are in the action. You are involved with some major social events in the City and the atmosphere is always upbeat.
Pros
Free meal
Cons
not a full time job.
