    Pros

    Some of your co workers are truly great people, hardworking and nice, easy to talk to and help the work day go by pretty fast

    Cons

    Most of management is very self centered, not opened to any advice or ideas because they want every good idea to only come from them. Also there is so much inner drama and childish behavior among the adults forget about the students that work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually listen to suggestions from other people even if you are their boss, they work the lines everyday and have good ideas! Also just because you're having a bad day do not take it out on your employees it just makes fro an unhappy, angry, hostile work environment.

    Pros

    They are very flexible with students so that you don't have to choose between your school or your job. It's very easy to get people to cover shifts via email. By the time second semester comes around it has a family atmosphere.

    Cons

    The only thing I would change is having someone other than the Senior Student Manager do the Final Exam schedules, however that could only be my opinion based on our Senior Student manager for this year.

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at CDS, because I had a lot of friends that worked there as well. It was nice to be surrounded by people who all got along so well. The customers were all students, and having regulars was common. Management was very friendly as well.

    Cons

    You have the same shifts every single week. In order to get time off you would have to post it on a chart on the wall, and another employee would have to pick up that shift. Initially, if no one were to pick up your shift you would either have to show up, or call in and be reprimanded. They later revised it so that if you asked for the time off more than two weeks in advance, you would be guaranteed to have it off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I recommend that management change the style of working at "Perk's." After working there for over a year, they introduced a new plan, and if you were not trained that way, you could not work there. The training was tedious, and with the employee who had worked there the longest, who was not necessarily the best employee there.
