Worked there and find no fault in the place as it hang all entire on one self if you know your work then you won't have a problem, if you a housekeeper then you need to know cleaning is of importants to your self and to other and benefit both, so knowing your cleaning and doing the job is important and vaccination aswell as it comes with cleanliness.

Fantastic for entry level employment

Its a fantastic company overall but some supervisors dont have a way of speaking and dont care how they treat people which makes the experience hard. In a nutshell its lots of work for little money

Pros

Free lunch, can work yourself up within the company

Cons

Under paying and no benefits

Share your experience to help others

My overall about weatern province caterers is the mistreat of people, not paying the salary the people deserve, stressfull.

The management treat the staff so poorely that it's a strungle for a person to take a sick leave day and you sign warnings for asking about your salary.

Well Presented Company With a Smell

Well managed company with a good reputation in general. In my many years in hospitality and catering, I have never felt so insecure in my job, getting rid of staff is shockingly easy, without any remorse. You have to fight for a decent salary, getting paid what you worth is a general practice. Growth opportunities are probably my highlight about WPC as there are transfer and promotion options.

Pros

Promotions, Reputable Company

Cons

Long Hours, Under Paid

Productive and a fun work enviroment

I e hljoyed working for the company.The management made you feel welcome and important.UV learned a lot from western province caterers because they give you the opportunity to grow by letting you go study further if you want to become a chef.the is a learnership program available to any one who is interested. If you live far from where your unit is they give travelling allowance. Each and every day you learn something new like how to do stock take,how to cook,how to worked ng shifts etc.

Pros

Free lunches

Cons

Long hours
