I have been working at SJSU Spartan Shops full-time (More than 3 years)
Fun and dynamic atmosphere. The company cares about sustainability issues and provides SJSU students with valuable work experience and opportunities for advancement. Spartan Shops is also very flexible for its student staff. Also, its profit is donated back to SJSU.
A high proportion of student staff also means high turnover. The company has a difficult time staffing supervisors and managers. There is also disproportionate attention paid towards its different on-campus eateries.
Advice to Management
Don't be afraid to hire outside of the company for management positions you need to fill quickly.
I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SJSU Spartan Shops in August 2014.
Interview process was good but was very slow, got call after months of applying. but it was fun. Questions were 1) tell me about yourself. 2) As i told them that i worked in my dad's company so they ask me that can you share your experience if you had with any bizarre customer.
