    Current Employee - Front of House in San Jose, CA

    I have been working at SJSU Spartan Shops part-time for more than a year

    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.

    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

    money is worth the time you you have to actually work there.
    doesn't interfere with class schedule and is near by.

    Cons

    less money as compared to others.
    does not help you if you are not looking for jobs in that area after graduating
