An okay job while in school

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsI worked in a college town, so that was fun as I worked with my peers. I am energized under pressure, so when it was very busy, it was very fun and (as a delivery driver) I made great tips. I had an amazing supervisor, and I got promoted after about 5 months.

ConsI worked in a college town, so that was a challenge: when summer hit, work was in very short order. When relying on a job to 'meet ends', it can be very troubling when that work isn't steady. And close to the end I got a really crappy supervisor after the aforementioned amazing supervisor left.

Advice to Senior ManagementEach store operator is unique, I'm sure. My particular operator would rather have 8 drivers sitting at the store off the clock during a very slow period instead of having 4 at the store and 2 on standby. I thought that was irritating and possibly illegal (I'm not sure about that one though...I thought workers had to work a certain number of hours while at the store...? I don't know).
