    Great work environment

    Pros

    They are really nice and always there to lend you a helping hand if you need one. They have a great work environment and the people there make you feel welcomed by throwing Birthday parties to even having free food and drinks. The job although it was tiring mentally it was rewarding at times helping other students.

    Cons

    Speaking to parents who do not treat you well. Students who have no respect at times. A lot of emails and phone calls.

    They will not take care of the students and are there for your money

    May 20, 2022 - Administrative in Charlotte, NC

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    If you want to work in a private university that doesn't set up their students for success and pass them along to get their money. Johnson & Wales is the place for you!

    Cons

    Johnson & Wales will pass a culinary student with a broken hollandaise. JWU does not give the employees the instruments they need for their job, very little flexibility to help the students, and few teachers keep up with trends or the quality experience with the high standards of operations in the hospitality and tourism industry. Please look at how many JWU graduates with Michelin Stars vs. their competitors like the CIA or Le Cordon Bleu. I'm not saying don't work here and earn your pay. Everyone needs a roof over the head and food on the table. Just be prepared to have your hands tied regarding certain situations that may question character of the company.

    Pros

    The work changed daily so we never got bored and I got to work with my closest friends. It was the best office environment I’ve ever been in. So many great perks like occasional free lunches during tours and events. Such a friendly and welcoming environment and the work kept me active because I was always giving tours of the city/campus.

    Cons

    The pay could’ve been a little higher, but for a work study position, this is more than UNH pays (which is the most expensive state school in the country iirc.)
