    Pros

    Convenient if you live on or close to campus. Overall, working with peers makes it more fun and helps your shift go by faster.

    Cons

    For a part time job, they are understaffed and over schedule hours without taking into consideration that students have other responsibilities The ones who make the schedules are also inexperienced students who just fill in gaps without looking at availability sheets or class schedules.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the conditions of the employee lockers and bathroom.

    Pros

    You get to meet students ranging from class levels and get to meet new people. They also work around your class schedule and you have the ability to take time off whenever you want.

    Low level of autonomy, level of work depends on how busy the day is. It's just your run of the mill fast food service job basically

    More interaction with employees and find out what they think of their peers in order to make sure no one is loafing
