Caterer (Former Employee), Interlochen, MI – January 29, 2013
Pros: free meals, flexible schedule
Cons: long periods of downtime
I worked catering which was actually very easy to handle even during the busy season. They give plenty of time and heads up about upcoming events and functions. If you need any help just ask and the boss will help you without complaint.
A typical work day is about two shifts. Triple shifts sometimes happen. I've learned how to work with other people and provide excellent customer service. The management is easily likeable. The hardest part of the job is getting up to do the breakfast shift (6 a.m.) and the triple shifts do take a toll on you. The most enjoyable part is that I'm working – more... in a place of the arts, which is my deepest passion. – less
