    My experience with Centerplate has always been a good one

    Executive Chef (Current Employee)
    Denver, CO

    Prosprofessionally run well organized, competitive

    Consseasonal location difficult to offer staffing advancement. Seems as though there isn't allot of growth for someone in the culinary department unless one is to move to the General manager position

    Advice to Senior Managementget to know lower level managers

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    The job is what you make of it

    Beverage Supervisor (Current Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsGet to be at large-scale events, good atmosphere. Company is showing progress after an embezzlement scandal, when I first started my franchise was extremely dis functional. Employees are very friendly to one another, and supportive of one another.

    ConsManagement is somewhat out of touch, scheduled very sporadic some days are very long while others you get laid off. People are dramatic and company culture revolves around the various department crews.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more consistent with employees hours. Some weeks you have 20 hours, the next week 60+ hours and the third week 0 hours. This is how management cuts costs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Overview of working at Centerplate

    Catering Sales (Current Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsWorking for large venues, working as back up managment at big events at other Centerplate properties (ie. Superbowl, Conventions, Neighboring sister properties), tickets and access to great events held at these venue

    ConsLow salary, no bonus system, no commission. Long hours, lots of weekends, limited free time and for low pay, it makes it difficult.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe strong on your salary requirements. Once you get in the door they will work you like a dog, so make sure you are making what you're worth.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Well networked and team orientated with multipul oppertunities to advancement and growth keep the staff inspired and eagar to learn and grow.

    ConsSuper high expectations which force every one to preform above and beyond the level that they may enter the company at. Consistant persuit of excellance which forces all staff to work to their full potential. Where some people thrive in this high presure enviroment, some folks are unable to live up to the expectations.

    Prosgrowth options, new groups, returning groups, able to travel to different Centerplate sites to help and meet fellow centerplate employees and different practices

    ConsLong hours not much family time, lower pay, takes a long time to get full time status or insurance for employees and its expensive and its only a mediocure coverage

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen more and follow thru with staff on needs and spend time trying to understand every position that it takes to run operations etc....

    good busy days friendly people

    Event Supervisor (Current Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsFriendly people, great time while working for the most part. Drama free and decent pay for what I'm doing. Growth opportunities i'm not so sure of but I am looking into them

    ConsI feel as with a little more equipment we could have much more efficiency.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAsk to see what your employee's think that they can do to better the company in happier employee's and events more productive, timely and can be done with better planning, this is all possible with very little investment on equipment.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
