    Pros

    Everybody you work with are students besides upper management. They work well with your school schedule.

    Cons

    Food service is a stressful industry on top of college classes and home work. Hard to find your balance between school, work, and a social life.

    Advice to Management

    Minimum wage doesn't offer much of an incentive to work hard.
