    Pros

    Fun environment, great food, Berghoff's Oktoberfest in Chicago is one of the greatest events not just to visit, but to work as well.

    Cons

    Catering business is dependent on the economy and the overall economic health of the city. Some days you are very busy and some days you get to catch your breath.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working with the community in the Loop for more long term contracts to assure security and loyalty of your staff

    Pros

    Starting pay is decent. There is opportunity to "prove yourself" and move up to be a captain/supervisor. Relatively easy work (just do what the captain/supervisor tells your to do). Friendly staff. Cool venues.

    Cons

    Pretty much all nights and weekend shifts. Can be stressful sometimes. Includes some heavy lifting. Some late nights (2am).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Continue to do things the way you're doing them. Maybe consider offering benefits to PT workers.
