    Former Employee - Food Worker in Iowa City, IA

    I worked at University of Iowa full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, good pay, MOST of the students are a joy to work with

    Cons

    You only get paid once a month, extremely hard to get a job here, and very high expectations during probationary period. Some standards are almost impossible to meet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont be so hard on the new employees. Sometimes your standards are ridiculous and almost impossible to meet.

    I worked at University of Iowa part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    *Impatient/rude customers
    *Poor dress code (women wear jeggings) <--- How are they professional?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Clearly communicate employee expectations
    *Create weekly training programs (per station)
    *Keep personal and professional relationships separate (do not let them intertwine)
    *Teach employees how to handle customers properly
    *Teach employees how you want the job done (you are very UNCLEAR of how the job needs to be done)
