    I worked at Penn State University


    Worked for only a few months. Job expectations are clear. Nice and friendly staff.


    Starting pay is low, but it's a food service job so I can't expect much.

It was the shortest interview of my life – so short that I didn't have to pay for my parking. I was still within the free first half hour. The following Monday they called me first thing to offer me the job.
