    I have been working at Aloha Hospitality Professionals part-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Flexible with schedule, willing to train if you're willing to learn, work with many different notable companies/chefs/organizations in a wide range of often beautiful venues.

    Cons

    Like many hospitality jobs there's a high turnover rate so you have to work with a lot of new people (both in casual hires and office/management staff), often unskilled/untrained (typically hospitality professionals). We do our best to help others but, working in the people business, sometimes it is difficult to connect. With management changing seemingly often I felt a little disheartened myself. Some people work a lot...

    I worked at Aloha Hospitality Professionals part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Get to work at unique locations and venues while meeting new people. I came from prior fine dining experience but I feel that working here elevated my service to a whole new level. Getting to pick and choose my own schedule made it convenient for me to keep my full time job while making extra money on the side. Unfortunately, my full time job has taken main priority so I no longer work events, but I often recommend it...

    Cons

    Consistency of events and hours. Some slow months, some very busy months

    Advice to Management

    Less notifications would have been nice

    I have been working at Aloha Hospitality Professionals part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very flexible! And the “Team” Are the most supportive and helpful “managers” you could ever ask for! They go above and beyond to provide you with the best advice while trying to be the best you can be at being hospitable! They strive for excellence and it helps to be motivated with “corporate” who CARE and live up to their expectations!

    Cons

    It’s still a small event company so it’s not super busy, which is both good and bad! Last minute notifications that you get selected for events! And they do have high standards, which make it seem like their picky, but there is a LOOK they want.

    Advice to Management

    More crosstraining would be nice and giving us often feedback, maybe every 4-6months.

    I have been working at Aloha Hospitality Professionals part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    In all honestly, I was rather hesitant to apply for this position. I thought I might be going backwards in my career path, thinking being a "server" was an entry-level position. Boy, was I wrong. First of all, the "servers" are not even called "servers" at GEH. They are called "Hospitality Professionals," perpetuating the genuine aloha and spirit of Hawaii, serving WOW to guests. What a great experience to make any resume...

    Cons

    This job is not for everyone. Some may love it; some may not like as much. There are different types of events ranging from private dinners to weddings to corporate parties to small boutique store events. Jumping around from event to event is a great way to test your potential. If in the end it doesn't work for you, be glad you've checked it off your list of potential job positions.

    I have been working at Aloha Hospitality Professionals part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Get to work at different venues and events around the island

    Cons

    Parking. Paying for parking is out of pocket, and sometimes you must park several blocks or more from the event

    Advice to Management

    Give more information about the event to the people working. Several events I had not received parking information, or where to enter venue once there

    I worked at Aloha Hospitality Professionals part-time

    Pros

    This was a fun environment with great staff.

    Cons

    as soon as they got the convention center contract things changes. Attitudes changed, everyone seemed overworked and there was a huge turnover as well as a huge hiring event where many employees hired should not have made it through the interview process. This further frustrated the good employees

    Advice to Management

    Keep the events and convention center staff separate
