  1. 4.0
    Former Employee, more than 3 years

    Good Start and Benefits; Sometimes Unfavorable Social Culture

    Aug 27, 2020 - Dining Services Employee in Saratoga Springs, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.
