Fast paced and fun place to work
Special Events staff and bartender (Current Employee) – Providence, RI – January 29, 2015
There really is no typical day when it comes to special events. However most of the time my position revolves around setting up a bar and making sure that I have enough kegs and taps, ice, beverages, napkins, etc. Then breaking down after the event, cleaning, and putting everything back where it belongs. The events can be anything including, but not limited to paint nights, baby showers, charity events, corporate gatherings, and also month long events like the Jack O' Lantern Spectacular, where as many as 10,000 people come through the gates in a single night! I always work directly under the general manager who is truly a pleasure to work for, and I learn a lot about planning and setting up special events especially because she is a perfectionist. Being very outgoing I love to socialize with patrons but one of the hardest parts for me is not allowing a person to drink if they do not have proper identification. Another hard part is having to be there late in the night in October and the beginning of November in freezing temperatures rain or shine. What I enjoy most is the fast paced environment and constantly being able to interact with others.
