Fun place including great opportunities
Cashier/ Stand Manager (Former Employee), Fayetteville, ncAugust 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.

Suite Server - Part-Time (Current Employee), Portland, ORJuly 30, 2013
Centerplate is a food service company for stadiums. Working as a server for the games I enjoy being able to talk with patrons and serve various types of food and drinks while they are enjoying the games. 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

A day at Centerplate
Cook/ Cashier (Current Employee), Washington, DCJune 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!

Great atmosphere
Concessions/Catering Supervisor (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZJune 5, 2013
Great place to work with a lot to learn from everyone at the job. There are many skilled employees that can teach different life/job experiences. The best part of the job is also the hardest part. Game day is filled with fast passed food firing and segregation, but at the end of the long firing process a sense of accomplishment is felt. To be able to – more... feed 3,000 people during a sporting event is a experience like none other. At this job I learned more of the leadership and management aspect than any new cooking skills. The ability to hone my skills in Southwest cuisine has given me an edge for menu building in the region of the United States I am living in. – less

Fun workplace, easy money, good part-time job.
Professional Banquet Server (Former Employee), South Bend, INMay 2, 2013
Pros: free lunches, dinners, long breaks, fun atmosphere.
Cons: no healthcare, mostly part-time, sometimes no work for long periods of time.
You set tables, polish silverware and glass, serve food and drinks and break everything down. Its pretty much as easy and as complicated as that. Most of the management are great to work for though some can be a bit harsh where they needn't be. The hardest part of the job its lifting heavy trays, you really have to have a strong back and good balance – more... for this. You get to meet a lot of interesting people, whether it be your co-workers or your guests. Its a fun job, sometimes your breaks can be really long, and you get fed! – less

Warehouse Commissary Mgr (Former Employee), One Redcoat Lane, KCMO, 64129April 15, 2013
Pros: the managers that i worked with made this job a breeze.
Cons: seasonal jobs are not a good time investment for the future.
I inventoried all alcoholic beverages in my area that were to be distributed. Upon completion, I would redistribute wares to individual vendors and refill orders throughout the night. This task included the counting of cash sales/balances, bookkeeping and closing at the end of the night.

A place with standards
Seasonal Crew (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INApril 2, 2013
Pros: great work enviroment
Cons: super fast paced at times
Working for Subway is amazing. the corporate inspectors are there once a month not only to insure that the stores are following procedure but to teach you easier and faster ways to create orders.

Typically a day starts with commentating the prep-list and stocking the line. Insuring that the freshest products are ready for the day increases the likelihood – more... of repeat costumers.

Managers insure that all the team works together. Most managers act like part of the team just with the responsibility of paperwork.

The hardest part of the job is dealing with rushes while maintaining adequate customer service. To goal is to create the orders in less than three minutes. Yet in a rush you may not have that long to create the orders. – less

company that believes in outsourcing
Internet Publicaton Operations Analysis (Former Employee), St. PetersburgMarch 7, 2013
Pros: almost decent money considering the work
Cons: uncertain stability, poor management
Management within the office is poor, at best. Lots of favoritism, and lots of petty issues.
The general ideology of the management is that you live to work there, not work there to live.
The company itself, if they can outsource your department, they will.
If by chance, you become one of management's "favorites" (which has nothing to do with actual – more... job performance) then your worklife is much better, otherwise be prepared for an onslaught of petty issues on a daily basis, that is, until you get laid off because your department is being outsourced. – less

Warehouse Associate (Former Employee), Nashville, TNFebruary 18, 2013
Centerplate a good company to work for if you can get into management. However, even if not in management, I enjoyed it most of the time I worked there.
