I enjoyed working for this company, it was a fun experience being able to interact with patrons and customers for football games and special events. Most importantly they gave us free food!

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

I made many tips a day based off of my customer service and the sale of beer. Low pay, but the id make made up for it. long work days, around 10 hrs everyday and you couldnt sit down at all. Had to be on your feet all day.

Banquet Server/Retail attendant/Retail Cashier (Current Employee), Orlando, FLFebruary 3, 2013
Pros: free lunches, huge opportunity to get experience in the banquet serving industry
Cons: shifts are first come first serve so they tend to go pretty quickly.
Working for Centerplate is very exciting. Always something different, new event, new faces, different roles. I can be preparing convention rooms for banquet on day and the next serve the guest food and/or drinks. Or i can work retail at a food spot and prepare food as well as cashier. We must be prepare for everything and anything that gets thrown at – more... you and be willing to do your best with a smile and this is why I enjoy what i do for this company. – less
