Assistant Banquets & Suites Manager (Current Employee), Indianapolis, IN – October 23, 2013
Pros: all the different events and people i have already met.
Cons: there are slow times in both venues during the winter, i love working and constantly learning about the hospitality industry.
I have learned so much about high volume service from working at Centerplate, the Indiana Convention Center along side Lucas Oil Stadium are two of Centerplate's most profitable venues. I have also been increible focused of always putting the guest first and Centerplate has showed me even more ways how to go above and beyond for someone, to create a – more... memorable experience each and every time. There is honestly only one thing I dislike about my job, I love the people that work for me, the events we host, and I love the long hours we work, the one and only dislike is the location. Indiana has been my home for 23 years, I want to get out and see the world and meet new people and expand my network even further. – less

The hardest – more... part of the job was having multiple events at one time in different locations. The most enjoyable part of this job was the availability, and opportunity to satisfy the customer and the client. – less

Manager (Current Employee), San Francisco, CA – October 21, 2013
Pros: free lunches, free sodas and discounted employee parking.
Cons: no time to enjoy a game!
a typical day at work is checking in, count starting moneys/inventory, checking-in everybody coming to work at my food stand; assigned duties and make sure everything is working properly. I had learned how to delegate, to manage a work place without always being supervise and to be accountable for, Management is okay, always on top of their game, co-workers – more... always need supervision but, most of them are fun to work with and are hard workers. The hardest part of this job is when everybody is gone home and you still have to stay late and be accountable for everything that went on that night or day at work! Nevertheless, it is very pleasant to be surrounded by people that care about you, weather they work with you or not there is always somebody that brings a smile on you! – 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
