Kitchen Supervisor (Former Employee), Bronx, NY – August 27, 2013
Pros: everthing about the job was great
Cons: seasonal, no healthcare, no set hours
working at Centerplate/ Yankee Stadium was fun. I got a chance to watch the players practice as we prepared the food to serve to the customers. The Managers and co workers were very friendly and supportive. We were a unit. The hardest part of the job is the late nights. sometimes we wouldn't leave until 11 12 at night. We had to make sure the kitchen – more... was spotless every night no matter how late it was – less
Cashier (Current Employee), Minneapolis, MN – August 6, 2013
Pros: working with my co-workers, getting exercise, and feeling good when i balance.
Cons: long nights when there's an event.
I work at the Metrodome on Viking games as well as Monster Jam events. I walk with a Mpls. cop to vendors and collect their deposits twice in one shift. I then have to run the money through machines and must make a deposit and balance for each deposit. The final deposit comes directly from the vendors in the window right there in front of us. I have – more... 12 co-workers who I enjoy working with every event. Management is so nice and are helpful if any questions that may arise. The hardest part of my job is walking through the crowds when collecting deposits. The best part of my job is working with my co-workers and having all my deposits balance. I have learned to have thick skin because at the end of the event, some of the vendors are not the nicest and they have no patience but I try to be fast yet accurate with their deposit. – less
Cashier (Former Employee), Fort Lee, VA – August 5, 2013
Pros: free lunch if u work over 5 hrs, the customers
Cons: no benefits, fire u if u get too much overtime, people in charge, bias environment
A typical day at cenetrplate at first is very diverse and fun going. and u would think that you would enjoy the job until u realize how un organized they are and bias. If you have rank in the military you can go very far or even if u are married they think by getting women that husbands are in the military to work there it will help their catering business. – more... If your a civilian and u want to work there give it up unless your ok with being overpowered by someone just because of theirs husbands rank. I dont recommend it. – less
Cashier/ Barista (Former Employee), Dallas, TX – August 5, 2013
Pros: free lunches, good overtime
Cons: only one mandatory break, long hours in hot spaces, same food
A typical day a starbucks is interacting with customerswhile preparing drinks, and serving pasteries. I learned how to work with a team in small quarters. Management was strict and strudy on jobs that were to be done. but sometime did not know how to communicate that to the team. My co-workers were normal people with normal problems which made the days – more... mor interesting. Most enjoyable part of the job for me was the interaction with customers from all different backgrounds and cultures. – less
Cashier/ Stand Manager (Former Employee), Fayetteville, nc – August 1, 2013
Pros: we were able to get half off lunches and see celebrities
Cons: very short breaks and sometimes events get cancelled
A typical day at work is fun because of our coworkers. I learned more about how to manage food/inventory. I also learned management positions. Learning managers and coworkers is very exciting and a positive outlook for me. There is actually no hard part about this job i wish security was tighter. The most enjoyable part is hosting all the events.

Management is run fairly well, I haven't had any problems with discrimination or unfair treatment in this company. The hardest part of this job is – more... having to carry various food and drink items up and down stairs and sometimes having to deal with unruly customers. – less
Cook/ Cashier (Current Employee), Washington, DC – June 27, 2013
I would say some days it can be a tuff day and others it can be wonderful and fun. I would have to say that I have learned a lot about how the kitchen operates. From the basic functions of the stoves, time management, baking and cooking. Oh and knife skills how can I forget about those!
