Great people to work for
Great place to work for but lifting is necessary and the pay could be better. Other than that it's like a big family. Management is great and the hours are amazing

Terrible management, no training
I was expected how to do everything on my first day with NO training whatsoever, got yelled at by a supervisor for simply asking a question, and got scolded for taking too long of a break (we’re given 15 minutes, i was about 5 minutes in). It says $13-16 which is false (in Winnipeg at least). You get minimum wage when you should get way more for the amount of work you do and everything you put up with from management

Great place to work
Great place to work. Friendly environment and it is fast paced at times but also relaxed during others. Great second job or retirement job. Good way to see the events while working as well

It had a very relaxed environment
Centerplate was an amazing place to work. I think their goal was to bring this company to St John's because they have companies all across North America and wanted to expand and let it be noticed to newfoundlanders
and toursits how amazing their food is and how greatful the staff are to be able to represent Centerplate in St Johns NL.

Not enough hours
Lots of walking and standing. Not enough hours of work. Can't feed a family working only 3 days in 2 weeks. Get to meet some cool people and see some cool stuff.

Great place!!
Loved it! Worked there for 10 years but moved to a different city and had to say good bye. All of the staff were wonderful and was a once in a lifetime opportunity

poor pay
fun job and great work environment however not very good pay for the amount of work I do.
basically have had to micro manage my peers, and have not received a pay raise.

I have learnt to work better and stress less in a high paced environment.

I have learnt really how important a team environment is and how to properly rely on my coworkers.

I love the people I work with very much.

however, since I have been there (almost 5 seasons) we have lost 6 managers and maybe more

There are good things and bad.
Some shifts I do enjoy, others I really hate. It all depends on the people you are placed with in your booth, as many of the employees are teenagers who fool around, socialize etc. and can make working basically impossible. Yet there are also many employees who are great people who I really enjoy working with and can make a shift.
Pros
Short hours
Cons
Rude peers

Good working environment
The company allows us to preform to the best of our abilities, it has a steady pay as we work through the year, which is why I would love the opportunity to do this apprenticeship

Lots of working opportunity through hockey season
Good seasonal job, lots of hours. Big crew, lots of work that needs doing, workplace culture is lacking, hardest part of the job is dealing with your coworkers.
Pros
Free dinner

Very boring workplace
there is absolutely no room to climb the company ladder. No matter what you're always replaceable to them. No regular life outside of working here.they send you home after a couple hours so on the weekends it don't add up to overtime.
Pros
Free LEFTOVER food
Cons
Work 7 days a week not full time so the weekends are not overtime.

Couldn't get more than 20 hours a week
Other people were getting over 60 hours a week. I was begging to get more than 3 days, I ended up quitting to work another job so I could pay my bills. They came in and too over our kitchen at the local Sports arena, I was 40 hours a week before they came in, after they came in I was less than 20, they've ruined the kitchen's reputation for quality and quantity buffets, more often than not they will run out of food during an event, and then blame the staff, who were just following the managers directions, while the manager washes his hands of any wrongdoings. They also changed the quality of the meat we served and attempted to introduce a new fancy menu even after being told the people in this area want roast beef on a bun, not some fancy thing that takes up 1/4 of the plate and doesn't fill you up. This company is going to sink the kitchen they took over in my city.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything

Ok part time job
Hours are good in season otherwise not great. Commission is good though when working. Unfortunately the company favours employees through much nepotism. hard to move up in the company and get adequate shifts sometimes because of this. Cuts off a lot of opportunities for progression.
Pros
Half off some products
Cons
Nepotism

Very flexible, general warehouse work. Lots of independence when it comes to work.
- Typical day at work: Clock in at 8:00am to 4:30pm. General warehouse work
- What you learned: How to work efficiently and diligently

- The hardest part of the job: the amount of walking you have to do.
Pros
Free lunches sometimes, very flexible
Cons
Work on most weekends

Productive and fun
We get to see the hockey games right in front of our eyes and a lot more other big shows that happening in the city. The only pressure we get was when the gates open and at the time of the interval, so that was pretty fun.

Fun place to work, variety of staff
Working at centerplate is a great experience. It has allowed me the opertunity to meet many interesting staff members, and be apart of a team. The shifts for a stand worker are not very consistent, however the work place environment is supportive and fun.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Unpredictable hours
