Anyone ever serve for a catering company?

Postby Phatferd » Mon Sep 25, 2006 2:03 pm

I am more than likely moving home after this semester because of financial situations and finishing my education at a local school. I have a job lined up when I get home to serve for this catering company that my cousin works for.

It pays $14 an hour, which is sweet, so I am all for it. She keeps telling me that its an extremely difficult job and keeps "warning" me. I jsut don't see how hard it can be. I expect it to be somewhat physically demanding, but nothing special. I assume I am going to be on my feet for hours at a time, but I just don't see how difficult it could be.

The company works 80% weddings and the rest are just private events for business' or family functions.

Difficult!! ahahahahaha

I did this for two years in college. 14 an hour awesome. You will work long hours. But you will get free food and drink and meet lots of trampy girls that want you.

You will be on your feet but usually in nice places. It was actually a pretty fun job

I recommend it 100%

Its nice when you get home from a job and your feet are tired not just your eyes and your mind.

Go for it!
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

What I like about it is I work like 3 days a week, 6-8 hour shifts making 14 an hour.

I can work 3 days a week and be alright financially while I am in school. I can also pick up a day or 2 working somewhere else and make really good money while in school.

The downside is it is mainly Fri-Sun, but I don't really mind if I have Mon-Thurs off. My cousin also said they are cool about giving you days off. If I request a weekend or a night off they will give it to me, so if I really want to go out one Saturday night or something I can.

I worked with a friend's catering company for awhile. It's easy work if you know your way around an industrial kitchen. If you've ever worked in a restaurant, it's cake to work for a caterer.

You DO work some long crazy hours and at some strange events. I've worked weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, holiday parties at customers homes, a swingers freak a thon at a strip club, political events, public events like music festivals, etc. I got tipped $150 bucks by a man who had us at a Christmas party for tending bar at his kitchen table for like 4 hours.

It has it's pros and cons, but all around it's good work for anyone in between gigs or going to school.

Invest now in a good pair of plain black shoes that are COMFORTABLE, like Rockports or something. Many events will require you to be in a tux shirt/tie and black slacks and dress-ish shoes.

And the leftover food ROCKS. ;-D
