"Amazing"

Pros

Everyone is extremely nice and I got to work on a wide variety of projects. The area is beautiful and so are the people that inhabit this wonderful place.

Cons

Not many downsides, besides the lack of diversity. The area is generally white and lacks culture that can be found in places like Berkeley or San Francisco.

    I worked at CAL POLY part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free meal with every shift and you get to meet some pretty cool people when there's a lull in service

    Cons

    One of the managers is the worst person to deal with, ever. My very first shift (4 hours) and she wouldn't let me take a single break or use my meal. She'll tell you what to do but not how to do it so you're on your own.

    Advice to Management

    To the one manager who cannot lead: What are you in a hurry for? When you're not barking orders, all you do is stand around looking for something to complain about.

    I worked at CAL POLY full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Constant availability means its fairly easy to get a job here, and easy to get enough hours if you need money. A set quarterly schedule for workers means you don't have a constantly changing schedule like other employers at Cal Poly. "Free-meal passes" are a little bonus each time you work at least four hours.

    Cons

    No benefits, great reluctance to offer "full-time" positions. Instead they rely on a constant stream of "interim" employees which basically means they'll work you full-time then replace you with someone else after a few months. Students are treated as disposable, and management will simply take them off the schedule to cut back on paid hours without even notifying them. Instead of offering quality food their dining division offers extremely cheap, overpriced food at the expense of its students.

    Advice to Management

    The number one complaint students have at Cal Poly is the food. If the corporation isn't aware of this they really must not care about the students. In my years at Cal Poly as both a student and employee I haven't seen the corporation take any steps to improve the quality of their offerings. Listening to the students would go a long way in improving the stigma that surrounds campus dining.
