    I worked at Berghoff Catering full-time

    Pros

    Berghoff Cafe is an awesome place to learn how to work really hard with lots of people who are willing to build into you if you are willing to commit to the team.

    Cons

    Really early or really late hours make work life difficult. Strong personalities are not for the faint of heart, but those willing to work with them will do well.

    Advice to Management

    Not a lot, the management at Berghoff Cafe is great. Employees are given a lot of chances to make mistakes and learn from them.

    I have been working at Berghoff Catering (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people I work with are like family. Getting to go to all kinds of weddings and concerts is also a plus while working fast paced and pushing yourself physically a lot at the job!

    Cons

    None. Only if you find the pros to be cons for you. If you aren't physically fit and don't like people, this job isn't for you!

    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

    I have been working at Berghoff Catering part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Starting pay is decent. There is opportunity to "prove yourself" and move up to be a captain/supervisor. Relatively easy work (just do what the captain/supervisor tells your to do). Friendly staff. Cool venues.

    Cons

    Pretty much all nights and weekend shifts. Can be stressful sometimes. Includes some heavy lifting. Some late nights (2am).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Continue to do things the way you're doing them. Maybe consider offering benefits to PT workers.
