    I have been working at SJSU Spartan Shops part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Best at CAD, CAM jobs. Good at marketing. Had a good experience in robotics and still willing to continue it.

    Cons

    I am fresher. Never worked before and want to start working just for the sake of experiences.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since I am new to the company and it is about autocars, I wish to include aerodynamics concepts to existing cars that will make them more attractive and probably efficient.

    Pros

    Don't have to travel far and can work the job into your class schedule. Can meet some awesome fellow students. Good place to start for someone who has no work experience.

    Cons

    No surprises, the job is what it is. Don't expect anything exciting or glamorous. The people you work with is what makes the job more enjoyable.

    Pros

    If you are just starting to work in a business field and you get a job here you will learn a lot. And you get 50% off of food all over campus which helps since you are on a college student budget.

    Cons

    There are a few people who will throw you under the bus here so be careful to whom you talk to they may seem nice at first but they won't hesitate to throw you under if something doesn't go the way they want it to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open minded to new ideas you are hiring students because we are young and we know what people our age want and need.

    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.
