    Great opportunity for student employment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI worked at the UM Rathskeller, the on campus restaurant/bar. Some pros were that it was super convenient to have a job on campus, I loved the people that I worked with, and the upper management were understanding and sympathetic about school-related schedule conflicts.

    ConsThe work itself wasn't that fun. Some customers were difficult to deal with. There wasn't much training for the job - I was thrown in there and expected to know what to do.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive more training!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
