Catering Sales Manager Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Catering Sales Manager?

Catering Sales Manager in Williston:
"Catering Sales."
Pros: I love my job. I like that I am learning everyday with every event. I have the help from my returning clients and some co workers. I have met great people. Having this job made me realize the things I want to pursue when I go back home. I really love that in my position I have and can help people. I love that I have employees that come to me.
Cons: I hate when our balance is off. When someone quits or when things seem super out of control to the point of no return. (it never is just feels like it) But it goes back to the fact that I just learned from a event event though it hurt and I felt like a idiot. I just got better for the next one.

Catering Sales Manager in Centennial:
"Lot of run around with not much compensation."
Pros: Meeting new people.
Cons: Waiting to get paid.

Catering Sales Manager in Evansville:
"Must LOVE people...and Dogs."
Pros: Each day is something new, there's no time to get bored or complacent. I have continual interaction with clients and I get to meet new people.
Cons: I work a LOT of hours and the position is Salary Exempt so there is rarely any comp time given, it can get exhausting after working 13 hour days for 15 straight days.

Catering Sales Manager in Washington:
"Opportunity to grow."
Pros: We have a well respected catering company in the region as a parent company. This helps our reputation for quality. The smallness of our company allows me to move about different roles and responsibilities. I started in account management and now I'm actively working in sales and marketing.
Cons: The smallness of our company causes a lot of confusion about roles and responsibilities. There are some SOPs that aren't in place that most catering companies have (ex. Recipes).

Catering Sales Manager in Washington:
"Opportunity to learn and grow."
Pros: Haute Catering is a small but growing company. We have the backing of a large and well-respected caterer in the region, so much of our reputation comes from that. Because our part of the company is smaller, I have room to learn many different roles and aspects of the company. I previously only handled account management. Now I am focusing on sales and marketing. There is the opportunity for growth.
Cons: The small company culture creates a lot of confusion about job roles and responsibilities. There is much to be done to create a complete culture of professionalism in this company. Focus is always how to make more money and not focusing on the quality and training of employees.
