- 4.0Aug 27, 2020Dining Services EmployeeFormer Employee, more than 3 yearsSaratoga Springs, NY
Good benefits and fair pay. Oftentimes had enough/extra hours and opportunities for upward movement. Coworkers and yourself have an opportunity to get close. Learning on the job is expected and fostered; if you put in extra effort/show interest, you can learn skills outside of your job description's parameters. Can have opportunities to shift the specific areas you work. Can meet many new people of various ages. Can meet great people for future job references and friendship.
Some sexism and issues with personal space/unsavory jokes when SOME folks get too comfortable/familiar with you. Also, a small handful of male coworkers made younger female staff uncomfortable when they found them attractive (myself and others who confided to me). Sometimes this was done unconsciously, and others times it was egregious and objectively rude/out of line.

The benefits and location are great.
Support Staff gets lost in the shuffle - no Merit Raises - where is the incentive??

Excellent academic environment, plenty of opportunity for intellectual and personal growth.
Low pay for support staff.

-Great supervisory staff -Room to learn and grow -Mistakes are not a death sentence -Professional Development Opportunities galore -On call isn't terrible
-Students are terrible -Every email from a student is literally a "Mental Health Crisis" -White privileged students and parents will email your Supervisor and their supervisor and tell them you're not doing your job just because they didn't like the answer you gave them. -All Rules are pretty much bendable if students complain enough1
