Beautiful and fun place to work
Lead Host (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAAugust 17, 2017
A typical day at work was providing great customer service and resolving issues. I learned how to be of sevice to my customers. Management was always there to help and provide encouragement.
I can honestly say there was nothing hard about this job. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing a happy customer.

Great Job, Amazing Opportunities
SENIOR SOUS CHEF (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 16, 2017
Work Days and months are mostly planned out. There are not too many surprises to your schedule. I feel like it can offer a lot for growing industry people. The biggest downfall is the lack of creation with unique ingredients, very limited based on client preference.
Also, quite a lot of expectation for many days in a row and long hours, but it is balanced with the "off" season.
Pros
benefits, pay, advancement

Bartender (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXAugust 9, 2017
Great company with a family feel. Management does not micromanage, they feed us, and they work hard to grant all schedule requests. There is plenty of additional work, too.

Behind the scene in a MLB ballpark - It's a hit !
Senior Maintenance Department Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 8, 2017
You will never have a mundane day of work when you work for Levy Restaurants at Wrigley Field. You set yourself up for success because the workload is fast paced. On a game day you are responsible for all working parts on each level in the ballpark. Making sure all the equipment such as ovens, dishwashers, cash registers and cleaning equipment are up to par and working like a well oiled machine for a successful day. Your teammates are just as important and the comradery that you build together makes it a fun place to work! A win from the home team will put a smile on your face too!
Pros
Free lunch and the euphoric atmosphere!

Very Exciting but Bad Pay
Catering (Former Employee) –  Auburn HillsAugust 5, 2017
I enjoyed my time working for Levy and made lots of friends. It was very exciting but pay is fairly low. I worked full time hours but never made it to full time employee status. Over all great experience though.

Great company from a home office perspective. Lots of resources.
Director of Operations (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIAugust 3, 2017
Regional directors and VP's were disingenuous.They only cared about themselves. They do not support their management teams. Unrealistic budget expectations. Budgeted revenue increased up to 20% each year.
Pros
Working in professional sports
Cons
Poor regional management

Premium catering server (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLAugust 2, 2017
It's fun cause different things happen all the time , but sometimes it can be unorganized, and a lack of communication. You do get involved in a lot of VIP events so that's nice.

Cool job for extra cash
Suite Attendant (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 28, 2017
It's a typical server/waiter job but requires much more preparation work than anything else. You arrive about two hours before the game or event starts and prepare all the food/beverages for the suite. You're also required to take inventory of the suite's items before and after the event. It was somewhat physically demanding having to gather all of my own materials, food, utensils, etc. and if customers wanted to order food or drinks during the event, that was another task entirely.
Pros
watching professional sports games, eating the food the customers didn't touch
Cons
physically demanding, multiple suite management, rude patrons

Fun and rewarding, but work life balance suffers
Former Manager (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJuly 25, 2017
Overall, a pleasant and rewarding experience. LEVY provides a great opportunity to work on complex large scale events. The only downside is that work life balance suffers during the busy season.

Stressful Job
Concessions Supervisor (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJuly 19, 2017
Fact of the matter is that its just a stressful job. There is a lot going on and not everyone can handle jobs like this. Expect to be on your feet for most of your day, and expect to never have the same schedule twice. Event driven work, and events have different times from week to week.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
Breaks are a second priority, hours are irregular
