Q: CP Food Service?

Saturday, February 21, 2004 1:55 PM
Ok about a week ago after I heard from my boss at SFSTL that there is a chance we are pulling out this year. I started looking for some jobs that are related to my current position. My current position is a supervisor with them.

So the first job I put in was at CP after seeing it advertised here on the site. Well today a representative of there’s called me and said they had a position for me as a FS cashier @ $6.25. Needless to say I was a little disappointed. It wasn’t exactly my first choice (Ware House was). Not to mention I haven’t made that little or been a cashier in almost 4 season now.

So then he said there was a chance to get a position that’s in-between a cashier and a supervisor. But he didn’t exactly make clear as to what that was and what the pay is for it.

So my questions are:

1. Is it worth going up there and working for 4 months?

2.How are the rooms, they board you in.

3.How are the people?

4.How strict are they. IE. if a button is undone on your shirt will you get written up.

5. What positions are there in FS up there?

6.How many hours is the average workweek during the summer. Quite honestly I am looking for a lot between 40 and 60, with possibly more.

7.ANd most importantly is it fun? And how are the people.

Thanks for any information you can provide me.

O.K. I am kind of confused here. What exactly were you are supervisor of at SFSTl?

What do you mean by pulling out? The park plans on opening this year so I don't understand.

I was wondering the same thing. Do they subcontract food services?

Yes, many parks do. The food service at SFNE is almost entirely subcontracted, for instance.

Ok I am a supervisor, but of what you ask? Well that’s kind of hard to explain really. Most mornings, that I am there I (and sometimes one other supervisor) am in charge of getting people to there stands and coordinating the opening of said stands and the vending room. Basically making sure all the people are were they need to be when they need to be there. Also in the mornings part of my duty is to make sure that everyone has everything they need and that enough product is being made for that day. IE Cotton Candy, Lemonade, and other various products.

After about noon till park close, I pick some stands and then through out the day check on them and take care of them. At night I close carts, do counts and then count the entire days money intake for that day.

So I applied at Cedar Point looking for a job in Ware House or something along the lines of vending attendant, vendor or even possibly a stand lead.

Also to clear up anything, there is one single company that does sub contract food service for/at SFSTL. That would be Observ .inc. Currently we have another operation similar to this at SFEG next to the companies office’s in Denver. Also some of you out there may of heard of us. We did have accounts at SFGAM and SFMM. Also we recently did a little event known as the Super Bowl down in Texas, you may have heard of it.

So now that, that’s all cleared up can anyone answer my questions?

1. Is it worth going up there and working for 4 months?

-- Yes, I had the time of my life both summers. Think of the college party life, except no school work to worry about after your work day is over.

2.How are the rooms, they board you in.

-- Not all that great. You have an option of 15 person apartments w/ a/c in the 5 bedrooms and a living room/kitchen or a 4 person dorm room. THe apartments are pretty run down. THe dorm rooms are really really small but a bit newer. THe good thing is that all the living arrangements are $100 a month or less. Avoid Cedars at all costs. Commons and Bayside are much better.

3.How are the people?

-- There's a mix. THere are people that I still talk with 3 times a week and those that I keep in close contact with. There were lots more I hung out with and thought of as friends. And then there were people that I avoided, mostly the white trash that a $6.25/hour job attracts. People that aren't there because they love amusement parks, but because they need a job, any job. Luckily there were far more of the fun college kids looking for a fun summer job.

4.How strict are they. IE. if a button is undone on your shirt will you get written up.

-- No. In fact I never saw someone written up for appearance, talked to yes, but not written up. BUt at the same time, people aren't stupid about it. Only thing that they are really anal about is that you need to be clean shaven, and no visible piercings or tattoos (not even earrings on guys). It's not like they're out to get you.

5. What positions are there in FS up there?

-- Not my area, but I know there were vending supervisors and such. Might be hard to get one of these positions your first year though. THere's cashiers and food prep in the stands, they have vendor people on the midways, and they have a normal resteraunt staff in the many sit down resteraunts.

6.How many hours is the average workweek during the summer. Quite honestly I am looking for a lot between 40 and 60, with possibly more.

-- You're pretty much guaraunteed to be working 50+ hours a week. I averaged around 62-64 my last summer. *** Edited 2/22/2004 5:15:30 PM UTC by Blaster_1578***
