Pros

Easy going, fun environment with fellow students. Relaxed supervisors. Discounts on electronics and clothing.

Cons

A little bit of micromanagement. A lot of books are sold out quickly and never restocked. It gets extremely busy during rush and finals time.

    Pros

    Flexibility.
    You can easily get other people to cover your shifts, even last minute.
    Jessica Votaw is really personable, and easy to talk to.
    If you get to work with Thee, you will see what being a responsible and amazing leader is. She is pretty awesome.
    Friends, and you get to build connections.
    DC parties are bad ass, specially for the incoming freshman.
    Direct deposit!!!! do it.

    Cons

    You do everything when you work front of the house.
    Some "Leads" are not so great at leading.
    Late shifts suck because if you close on a monday you leave at around 2am the next day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put cameras or something by the checker stands. Most employees don't care and they let people without meal plans in to avoid confrontation. This hurts all of us because that means less raises and improvements to the DC. Many people like to steal plates and silverware, maybe a loss prevention would alleviate this issue.
