I worked at Culinaire International part-time
The pay is comparable to other food service jobs especially considering how few hours available at the Guthrie. other employees make for a great team. people are usually willing to help out if you ask politely and are generally competent. Overall, I really enjoyed working at the Guthrie Theater working for Culinaire International
Tips from guests at the Guthrie Theater are hit or miss. some guest tip very well, others not at all. Additionally, the sales volume varies wildly from season to season depending on how popular or successful the shows are.
Advice to Management
The management does an excellent job of creating a comfortable work environment, but they could do a better job of holding people accountable. sometimes the environment is so relaxed some employees take advantage by slacking off, putting a heavier work load on the more responsible employees

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Culinaire International in September 2009.
Initially interviewed, turned down the role, then a year later was contacted again about a different role. The initial contact (second time) was via e-mail, then phone, then in person. Multiple interviews were done which is why it was a two week process before an offer was made. The interviewers were all professional and seemed excited about working for this company. My advice to anyone interviewing is ask some hard questions. Get to know the company culture to ensure that you fit in. Some people do fit into this corporate or local culture, others will not. Ask a lot of questions and see if you can spend time shadowing the role (or another role) before accepting the position.
- Are you willing to work non-traditional hours? Answer Question
Negotiation was straightforward and fairly easy to navigate through. My advice, go in knowing what your low number is and make sure you stick to it if you know it is fair.
