A very nice enviromet to work
As a banquet server on a tipical day at work, you will be faced with challenges unique to a banquet environment. Banquets differ from working in a restaurant environment, which has a menu and public clientele. Every day you will find yourself working a variety of events for a variety of guests. The first thing is the preshift with the captain, who goes over the menu, and the specifics of the funtion. Then after we have to arrange tables according to the layout specified by the party holding the banquet. We also dress the tables with linens and set them with china, silverware, napkins and glasses.
At a sit-down dinner, we deliver courses to the guests, ensuring that any pre-arranged meal selections are distributed appropriately. For buffets, sometimes dish the food out for guests or ensure that the buffet remains well-stocked.

Between courses or after the meal is finished, we clear plates, taking them to the kitchen for the dishwashers to scrape and clean.


After the banquet, servers gather any remaining plates and remove the table linens for laundering.

I learned that throughout the banquet, we are responsible for being professional and courteous to all guests. We must move quickly and work carefully so as not to drop any food or dishes.


I get alone very well with my co-workers, we do a very good teame work.

The hardest part is that we have to carrie a tray with 10 plates full of food, very heavy.

The best part is when the guests are happy and thankful.
Pros
free meals
Cons
not steady job, only when there is an event

Too much favoritism
Retaliation happens often
Management it's horrible

All managers are friends with other managers so there's no one to complain to

HR doesn't get on your side

Awesome job!
I’ve been with Hyatt for 5 years now and with any luck I’ll never leave this job. The pay is great, the staff is a big diverse family, the work is fair, and being able to grab a free delicious meal from the cafeteria on your break is unbeatable.

Great place to work in banquets on call basis
My position is on call so job security does not apply. My schedule is on availability with other hotels I work for and the hotels loyalty to me with making shifts available early. As I am basically a self contractor in my position....loyalty is based on pay and my status on when I am contacted for job opportunities.

REALLY good tip point, great coworkers, awesome flexibility
I am shocked more students don't work as on-call banquet servers. This is the best life hack I have found to get me through school.
YOU tell them your availability every week. You can only work 2-3 times per week for the same company, but a lot of us juggle a few on-call jobs, which adds up to full time, except with freedom!

It only pays $12/hour officially, but after tip point you rarely make less than $40/hour.

The community there is unlike any other, and we all stick together.

Great Family Culture
The management was there for us as employees. This overall attitude made it feel like a fun team going to play a game as you would on a sports team. Would recommend this management and job to any hotel or employee.

The banquet Department here is a joke 😅
The money wasn't bad but the Captains are a total disaster. And the Banquet Manager isn't much to brag about either. There are a lot better banquet places to work with a much nicer rewarding staff.
