    I worked at SJSU Spartan Shops part-time (less than an year)

    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

    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.

    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.

    I worked at SJSU Spartan Shops part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It is on campus, so it is convenient to got there, work and study. The work is easy to learn. Majority people work there are students, so it's easy to get along with coworker.

    Cons

    Low pay, only $8/hour, even when you become a lead, you may only get $9.25. All SJSU spartan shop services do not allow to take tips, even if the customer insist, we have to refuse, which sucks. No benefit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more friendly and understanding with students, we have both work and study.

    I worked at SJSU Spartan Shops full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, collegial atmosphere. A chance to take college classes for almost free. Lots of facilities that a person can make use of (gym, library, etc).

    Cons

    To get anything done requires filling out a form. Very wasteful, if you have nothing to do you get paid to sit around. People don't have to be productive.
