Current Employee - Server in Columbus, OH
Current Employee - Server in Columbus, OH

I have been working at The Ohio State University part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Employee meal every 4 hour shift
Full-time managers are friendly and relaxed
Co-workers are willing to help; it's a team environment
Fairly flexible scheduling
Easily accessible lockers for while you're at work

Cons

Not allowed to take tips
Late-night shifts tend to cater to a high percentage of inebriated customers and walking home afterwards is not always safe.
Parking a serious issue.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Close the same time the bars on campus do. The amount of money being made after that point is not enough to compensate for putting employees in danger when they get off work. At the very least close before campus transportation and student safety stop running. Also, allow workers that live off campus to park in the Union garage for free. I have to walk 20 minutes to and from work after driving to campus during the day because that's where the nearest available parking is located.

    I have been working at The Ohio State University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent stipend as a TA, supportive staff, many opportunities to improve teaching ability through the workshops offered. Everyone at CLSE is very devoted to making sure students and TAs have the best possible experience at Ohio State.

    Cons

    Health insurance costs are fairly high, limited spots for contractors after graduation, little room for advancement, though most people are just taking the job for experience or until they get a career elsewhere.
