    Pros

    The park plaza is a great place to learn how to function within a high class banquet environment. The management is great and the pay doesn't hurt when there is work.

    Cons

    As a part Time banquet server you aren't given every available shift that exists because there is so much seniority involved in the scheduling process.

    Advice to Management

    Do your best to make sure the people who have been working diligently can be moved into higher positions so they can get more shifts. Also, don't worry about the people that constantly complain and file grievances. They are just along for the ride.

    I met with Human resources first, who interviewed me twice on overall background and what I was looking for. Then they moved me on to an interview with the Director of Sales which was a one interview process. We also talked on the phone and did a salary negotiation.
