    I have been working at Alonti Catering full-time

    Pros

    Nights and weekends off! Driving at 11.50 an hour in the downtown area is great! Tips are not bad at all!

    Cons

    Hustle on getting the most deliveries to make the most money in tips. Only keep 90 percent. We use our own vehicle and have to pay every penny out of our pocket. When management forgets to order certain supplies they expect the driver to use his own vehicle and gasoline to pick up items they missed! That is not fair at all!

    Advice to Management

    Realise that when it is your fault dont expect a driver to speed it up to get a certain item. I have received parking tickets and speeding tickets without Alonti ever bothering in paying for me. It is all a risk! Dont favor the women at work because of your cruel behavior and give them entire delivery routes just so they can end up being late!

    I worked at Alonti Catering full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay, most weekends and evenings off

    Cons

    Terrible Management- They were always bickering and acting dramatic. Gossiped about everyone and everything. Pretended to work and act busy when things needed to get done.

    Advice to Management

    Need a new management team ASAP

    Pros

    You get to listen to music all day which makes the day go by fast

    Cons

    You use your own gas, about 60 miles a day just doing the deliveries. Everything is horrible , do not waste your time.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are THE DEVIL. They treat you like trash. All new hires are temps.And they treat people's food poorly!!

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

    Pros

    Tips and deliveries. You get to take deliveries and get paid for them in California. And tips, about 200 dollars, easy money every check.

    Cons

    You don't not have a set schedule. You can go in at 2 am today, 6 am tomorrow. You could get out at 1 pm today, or 6 pm tomorrow. To much pressure from the boss who just sits there watching you drown with work. They expect your complete soul. They demand your life, for just alittle more than minimum wage. The pressure they put on you is equivalent to working a CIA job, without the benefits, or pay. The sales ladies are spoiled, they don't have to do any work for themselves, making own lunch, wrapping own cookies to take to tastings. And they get so much more pay than you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being strict. All of your employees are developing resentment towards you and all you care about it a sale.

    I have been working at Alonti Catering full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great staff and management, I love working for Alonti. They compensate their employees well. I would recommend anyone to work for this company. I've been here for over a year and look forward to my future here.

    Cons

    There is a lot of driving but you do get mileage reimbursement as a salaried employee. The mornings are a little early but you also get weekends off.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to make sure you are listening to your employees and try your best to work as a team and be leader, not a boss.

    Pros

    Nothing other than free food.

    Cons

    Management ineptitude. Weak sales managers that don't care when they come in. Low pay. No benefits. Walk around looking like a turd in their brown shirts.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the lazy people and the sales managers that care more about where their new vehicle is parked then how much work needs to be done.

    I have been working at Alonti Catering full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    No nights nor weekends. All major holidays off. Unheard-of in the restaurant biz. Decent pay structure.

    Cons

    Too many levels of supervision. Each level isolates the next from the actual goings on at store level. No accountability

    Pros

    the pay is decent for no experience in the catering industry

    Cons

    very outdated company outlook meaning it is sexist, raciest and bigamist & all managers need hr training and could also benefit from sales manager training

    Advice to Management

    get hr training

    I have been working at Alonti Catering part-time

    Pros

    The day goes by very fast, get there at 6:00am do a little bit of prep leave at 6:30am do a couple of
    deliveries, get back at around 8:30am do some more prep work or dishes, then leave again at about 10:00-10:30 do 2 or 3 deliveries, arrive back between 12:00-12:30pm do some dishes and some cleaning and your day is done. Tips are great, especially when there are only a few drivers, as the tips are pooled and paid every two weeks with your check.

    Cons

    Must use your own car and your own gas. Tips are pooled. If someone does 6 deliveries in one day and someone else only does 1 delivery that day they still get the same amount. Sometimes the customers tip and other times they dont tip at all. (Customers usually have accounts)
    A lot of driving and wear and tear on your vehicle.

    Advice to Management

    Get a company vehicle, or give more of an allowance for gas.
