Former Employee - Waiter in Chicago, IL
Former Employee - Waiter in Chicago, IL
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

You will find nice coworkers willing you to teach you and help you out the way the company does things.
They do have flexible hours, and they do not penalize you if you don't accept a shift.
Very well organized event supervisors

Cons

No place to grow in the company, there is no mechanism or internal opportunities to fill for opening positions as sales person or event producer.
Pretty much the have dead end positions.
If you have work under other systems that have work even better and you want to proposed something, never it is heard. Not a good place to bring new ideas
No bonuses
They just give you 4 hours shifts week in advance not biweekly or month in advance like other places. Not enough hours.
They never answer the phone.
Most of the time they wont give you a break, bring your own lunch to eat after work
In the rare occasion they give you a break, they prefer to toss the leftover food to the garbage instead to give it to the employees.

Advice to Management

Create a carrer within the company, Care for the reliable employees.
If you already sold the food, is cooked and uneaten why not to feed the waiters, a little perk that goes the long run.

    I worked at Blue Plate Catering part-time

    Pros

    Great flexibility and pay. As a college student, working events that fit your schedule was the best part.

    Cons

    Some supervisors/captains were very rude. Especially one who would push you out the way and talk down on you.
