    Pros

    The company is very understanding when it comes to personal needs.

    Cons

    Ovations does manage 24- hour businesses, so it is important to keep that in mind when the holidays arrive.

    I have been working at Ovations Food Services part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Concessions workers make great tips and generally have good working hours for supplemental income. Attending numerous events and seeing the attractions on breaks.

    Cons

    Office employees get the brunt of the work and are shafted when it comes to being tipped out (at least in the operation that I work). Very long hours for most of the employees and constantly under scrutiny.

    Advice to Management

    Give more flexibility to the office staff and give incentives for their hard work. The excuse of "we pay you more than them" doesn't hold up when the amount of money that the other employees are making in comparison is easily double the income of an office worker for the same event.
