    I worked at Wolfgang Puck Catering full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Learn good technical skills. If your lucky there are some good down to earth chefs that will take time to teach you.

    Cons

    LIttle care for employees, try and get your year in and transfer within the compass group family. If you are female and pretty you can go far.

    Advice to Management

    Care for those who care about the company. Its not always about cheep labor. I had to stop my supervisor from refrying chicken he dropped on the floor.That was free!

    I have been working at Wolfgang Puck Catering part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Well organized events. Excellent food. Dedicated staff.

    Cons

    The work is often tediious, most of the events take place at night and the work is "On Call" so yo don't always know if there will be any week available.

    Advice to Management

    There need to be staff evaluations led by the managers on company time, with advanced training. The comapny needs to promote more butlers to management while doing a better job of promoting from wiithin. There needs to be more positive reinforcement, and mentoring opportunities.

    I worked at Wolfgang Puck Catering part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Learned much about catering; decent pay; upscale working environments. Part-time hours offered flexibility in raising a family.

    Cons

    Not a full-time job; hours varied so you never had a set schedule or income to depend on. Some people worked extremely hard, while others slacked off and supervisors wouldn't say anything because they were afraid the slackers would quit.

    Pros

    I feel that overall Wolfgang Puck Catering is a good company to work for. Good people, Good environment, decent support.

    Cons

    I felt that they paid fairly poorly and way below the average comapred to other similar companies. Lack of training, I was just throw in and expected to do everything the way they wanted it....but I think some of that was related just to my specific manager.

    I worked at Wolfgang Puck Catering part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    making 20 per hr is nice

    Cons

    managers who don't care about the brutal working conditions. some shifts include taking heavy platters of food up and down 5 flights of stairs for 7 hours straight. they will literally work you to the bone and often times are too busy to give breaks to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    grow some respect for other human beings.
