Matire'd, Bartender, Server (Current Employee) – Township of Warren, NJ – July 17, 2018
I worked here for a long time and i have enjoyed it. I worked in multiple positions and enjoyed all of them. Although some of the managers are not very nice. If you like working in catering you should apply.

Dysfunctional, we weren't treated with basic respect, management is a joke and the employees are rude. One of the managers is sexist as are a couple of the servers, the event planners overall only fend for themselves and are disrespectful. They expect you to know everything in the span of a week when they give you responsibilities that aren't part of your job role causing it to become overwhelming. It is a chaotic and negative work environment. I also discovered that 30 minutes get taken out of your paycheck when we work over 6 hours, which is unfair because we were never given any breaks.

NO training when needed, the Sales people are only out for themselves - they over sell to pad their paycheck and not interested in the people behind the scenes who have to do the real work! Servers are OVER worked and the company illegally takes a half hour from your pay every 6 hours for a food break you NEVER get- you never get a break no matter what they tell you! Owners are money hungry - the new VP thinks he's gods gift to hospitality...ignore him...STAY away from this company - go work at McDonald's!!! It pays better - this company will work you to death!!
Manager (Former Employee) – Wherever they put me – April 15, 2018
Looks good at first, but once you see how things go there you realize that it’s like a disfunctional family. Very little structure where work loads are dumped on management that don’t even apply to their job. Example, shoveling snow, escorting rowdy guests out, excessive miles put on personal vehicle... If you get along with them socially you will be fine, but you are expected to be a flawless employee with little to no direction. You can literally have numerous complaints about certain employees and they will be ignored. A lot of stuff gets thrown under the rug just to get by. There are MANY other jobs in the hospitality industry now, do yourself a favor and look elsewhere, don’t get sucked into this mess!!
Catering Server (Current Employee) – Whitehouse Station, NJ – April 18, 2017
NO COMMENT, There are definitely more Cons then pros with this job. BUt if you enjoy hospitality work you will over look everything thrown at you in the stressful and fast paced work environment.
New people Everyday, same work routine every wedding
No Breaks, Every 6 hours a half hours pay is deducted, food supplied by kitchen is taken out of paycheck even if you don't eat it or it is not provided, Requested days off are never guaranteed and only posted the week before requested time.
Front Desk Associate (Former Employee) – New Hope, PA – September 11, 2016
Extremely disorganized. Not much assistance when needed, the Wedding bookers are not really interested in the people behind the scenes and those who do their best to run the front desks. Workers seemed overwhelmed a lot and it is unfortunate because it can be a lovely place to work. If you enjoy that environment it is ruined by the unprofessionalism and lack of Management. They work with you at first to get you on a schedule and then change the job description and schedule.
Digital Marketing Coordinator (Current Employee) – Jersey City, NJ – July 6, 2016
They don't think they run like a mom & pop, but they do. Often decisions are made not on analysis or logic but on the gut feelings of the owners. Extremely disorganized and have a handful of people doing the jobs of dozens. Pay is not very competitive.
That being said, it's a relaxed environment, flexible hours and dress code and people are generally friendly. And most people (in the office) can go home at 4 or 5 and leave the workday behind them. I can't speak for venue or restaurant staff.
Family lunch on Fridays, discounts at restaurants, hotel rooms
Nepotism, company often takes shortcuts, disorganization
The hardest part of the job was the hours and the time that needed to be given in order to be successful. The environment was great and the location was awesome. I really enjoyed working with so many different employees and management from day one and enjoyed seeing the entire process of opening a new venue. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing and dealing with so many different people and being allowed to give my input and creativity throughout the process.
