      Rutgers Dining Services

      May 4, 2021 - Student Unit Manager in New Brunswick, NJ
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I liked that as a student employee, I still received benefits outside of the hourly wage including a free meal plan. Certain dining service programs have room for promotions/growth within the business for college students.

      Cons

      High turnover rate of student employees, but with it being a large university, that is pretty much inevitable

      Excellent Faculty but Turning into a Med School with an attached University

      Apr 23, 2021 - Professor in New Brunswick, NJ

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The faculty and research at Rutgers is of the highest quality. The top 10% of the undergraduate students are similar to those as any university in the US.

      Cons

      With the merger with the medical school, Rutgers has titled towards the medical side of the university. The largest academic schools are now starved financially, something that didn't occur before the merger. There is also the ongoing process of corporatization within the university, trying to fit an educational institution into a business model. The highest academic leadership is dominated by people tied to the medical profession

      Pros

      Flexible scheduling from semester to semester. Training workshops (paid) offered several times per semester. Lead tutors and administrators are responsive to concerns. Policies are consistent and clear. Opportunities to substitute for other tutors.

      Cons

      Depending on demand and availability, hours may not be consistent from semester to semester; sessions may be added throughout the semester. If students cancel ahead of time, session is cancelled and unpaid.
