    Pros

    Fun to interact with all the different clients. Holiday events and special occasions were my favorite.

    Cons

    Busy holiday seasons and dead summer seasons. So either 40 plus hours or lucky to get 5.

    Advice to Management

    Management was great. Only wanted to educate and train. Very helpful.

    Pros

    Being able to serve faculty and staff really gives you the chance to get to know people on a deeper level. So they become a person of worth instead of just a number or just a student. I also loved helping with food preparation. That was really fun.

    Cons

    There was a lot of unprofessionalism taking place there, and there was constant manual labor that was imposed on some, but not all. Slacking and discrimination on any case is unprofessional to me.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring a new human resource person would really help this business become better at what it does..and paying employees more money and actually caring about the employees would help as well. Let the last ones go, keep the hard workers. They deserve the best.
