    Rough hours, easy work, fun co-workers, micromanaging. Great summer job for freshman and sophomores

    Pros

    Conversing with other students can be quite enjoyable. Your responsibility is minimal. You typically have days off if you don't mind working nights.

    Cons

    Must work weekends often. Managers can be over-bearing. Work can be mind-numbing. Customer service can be frustrating especially with the high volume of customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to make working there again fun and maintain responsibility. It's a tough balance to strike, but it's a great manager's achievement.

    I worked at Wisconsin Union as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    You're given a lot of responsibility if you can show you're talented and eager. I had chances to do a lot of creative marketing campaigns and it felt extremely rewarding. Great people and it's always fun to work with other students.

    Cons

    Quiet, stuffy office. Not a whole lot of human interaction outside of the other interns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the office every now and then!

    I worked at Wisconsin Union part-time

    Pros

    I worked at the Food and Beverage department. The people who work there are very helpful and focus a lot on team work.

    Cons

    When working longer shifts, I wish they can let us have a free meal. Sometimes we are short on staff so it can be very stressful.

    Pros

    The Union is an amazing place to work if you want to meet other students while gaining workplace experience. There is an ability to grow and move up in your unit.

    Cons

    Management is very unorganized and often miscommunication is a result of that. The voices of the student employees seem to be lost in the shuffle of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, take HR complaints and customer ratings seriously.
