    I worked at Forty Niner Shops part-time

    Pros

    Great work/school balance for students all in one location. You can be in class one minute and go to work the next without having to commute in between. Opportunity to meet a lot of students and see a lot of friends. Minimum taxes are taken out of your paycheck because you work for the campus but don't expect much on your tax return.

    Cons

    Limited shifts & hours. Full-time students can only work up to 19hrs/week while part-time students can only work up to 29hrs/week. Pay is minimum wage and if you are working in the University Dining Plaza expect to sweat a lot because there is no AC.

    Advice to Management

    Students work hard and should be compensated for such. Get a working AC system in the Dining Plaza and offer more hours to those who can handle their work/school balance.

    I worked at Forty Niner Shops part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some members of management are very friendly and willing to get to know you, flexible schedule, friendly people to work with.

    Cons

    Overall leadership. Some were much more willing to help to get to know you than others, let alone respond to emails at a reasonable time.

    Advice to Management

    Since the number of employees decreases after the first couple of weeks of the semester, please provide more reasoning to employees that do not get to stay, especially if they ask. I have seen former employees that send out multiple emails to different supervisors about why they did not get chosen to stay but never received a response.

    I worked at Forty Niner Shops part-time

    Pros

    Location/Convenience of working with your school schedule. Not hard to get in. Upper Management overall very approachable and willing to help new hires.

    Cons

    Can be hard to get into it if you don't immediately mesh well with the regulars there. Had a hard time knowing if there was a job opportunity for me because those that decide who to keep are not as transparent in their reasoning. I thought I was set to stay for the semester with one of the managers and fwe regular employees confident in me but I never heard from them on why I did not get the position anyway.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency with new hires to know if they will be given a place. Even if they are likely not going to receive the job for the semester but are being proactive about finding out it helps for them to know management's confidence level in them whereas I was left out with mixed thoughts.
