    I have been working at Durham Catering Company part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Scheduling is somewhat flexible, pay is good, and the overall work atmosphere is great. It can be hard work at times, but it is mostly an enjoyable experience.

    Cons

    Although scheduling can be flexible, you are at the mercy of the event schedule, so work is feast or famine. The spring and fall are busy times with most work occurring on the weekends and there are significantly less events in the winter and summer.

    Advice to Management

    There should be an opportunity for long-term staff to earn more money than new staff, without having to attain captain status.

    I have been working at Durham Catering Company as a contractor

    Pros

    Coworkers are awesome. People are treated with respect. Everyone pulls their weight...if you don't, you won't last long here. Because it is a small, independently owned company, if you have ideas that will benefit the company, you will be taken seriously.

    Cons

    Because it's such a great place to work, turnover is low and so it is somewhat difficult to advance in the company and also not enough jobs for everyone to work as often as they would like.
