Productive and ever changing workplace
Catering Supervisor (Former Employee) – Fairbanks, AK – December 5, 2018
I worked as a caterer for NMS. Some weeks had only a few hours of work, and other weeks were 50+ hours. Some days would be a few hours of cleaning and prep work, and other days would be multiple events at the same time from 5am to midnight only to be back at it at 5am the next morning. The overtime pay made everything worth it, but the hours definitely made for a feast or famine kind of job.
I learned how to organize, set up, run, and take down events. I learned how to drive a box truck, take inventory, take calls, and schedule shifts. It was a job filled with learning, and there were actual job advancement opportunities.
Everyone was a solid team and did everything they could to help each other succeed. I loved it, and I miss it.
Free food (worked out of university cafeteria), decent pay, advancement opportunities, team environment
Extremes of long hours or no hours
