Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Ovations Food Services part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Operate by the book. There are no shortcuts.

Cons

No flexibility. Make an error; pay the price. Initiative is not recognized as a positive.

Advice to Management

All of the upper management came from other organizations, one would think because they had a better model. Unfortunately, they forgot those reasons.

    I worked at Ovations Food Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    An opportunity to learn about the food service industry especially concessions management.

    Cons

    There is a tremendous amount of game playing (politics) at the Regional Director Level which stifles the ability of people below that level to be creative and as productive as possible.

    I worked at Ovations Food Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great business in a fun industry. Some opportunity to do your own thing and make things better for the customer and the client.

    Cons

    Terrible corporate management (including one sad and shameful example of nepotism). Extreme paranoia about volunteer staff work solely to raise money for their nonprofits.

    Advice to Management

    Nightly drinking on the job should not be acceptable. Couldn't wait to get away. It's not if something was going to happen, but when.
