    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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

    Discounted meals, works with class schedule, awesome co workers, depends on the unit you work in. On campus, no work or very little work experience required.

    Cons

    Not enough hours available, but this is before the new SU opening. Minimum wage. Management getting a little more strict with policy.

    Advice to Management

    Help create a positive work environment for all your employees!

    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.
