    I have been working at Chartwells

    Pros

    Very understanding of students needs. My coworkers are great and there never is a dull moment. I work VIP catering events for the top Admin at the University at Albany, as well as arena concessions for events ranging from college basketball tournaments, music concerts, and other various sporting events. In the summer I also get to work for the NY Giants Training Camp.

    Cons

    as a student, you cannot make anymore than $10/hour.

    Lots of corporate nonsense, such as monthly sexual harassment prevention training.

    I am always throwing away food. Employees are not allowed to take home food even if is going to be thrown away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop wasting food, please create liability wavers so you can donate it to city mission/soup kitchens/food pantries/shelters!

    Every time i work, we throw out 50-100 pounds of food. This could feed so many families who can not afford to eat!

    Pros

    Very flexible with your schedule
    Understanding about school work and other issues that may affect your coming to work
    Decent hours

    Cons

    Getting a break is non existant most of the time
    Their managers can be a pain in the butt and unhelpful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to give employees breaks, especially if they are coming out of the check
    Train managers to actually listen to employees issues
