      I worked at Berghoff Catering full-time (More than 3 years)

      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
