Student Worker (Current Employee) – Worcester, MA – May 25, 2017
This is a perfect place to meet all your friends. It is a place where the captains and workers/managers are always willing to help and assist you. They are not here to set you up to fail in life and are very encouraging.
Student Worker (Former Employee) – Worcester, MA – May 23, 2017
I would typically get situated and begin taking orders. I'd clean when things slowed down. The job was great with my co-workers. It felt like I was working with family. Everyone was kind and helped one another out. That was really enjoyable. The hardest part was getting a massive amount of orders in a short span of time; however; working with my supervisor and co-workers made it less stressful and doable. I learned a lot about working with a team, and developed great communication skills through interacting with customers with regular orders and special dietary restrictions requiring delicate care with other customers order. At the end of my shift, I would clean and stock up, and then we'd close the location.
Assistant Women's Basketball Coach (Current Employee) – Worcester, MA – May 17, 2017
Work as a division one basketball coach is challenging, but rewarding. The most important thing I have learned is how to manage players and motivate them everyday. The hardest part is connecting with a younger and ever-evolving generation. This connection takes a persistent thirst for techniques and knowledge on how to grow and cultivate culture within a team.

Div. of Admin, Finance & Investments (Former Employee) – Worcester, MA – July 18, 2016
• Applicants should seriously consider and research the institution’s reputation in their given field. Calls to peers in the industry would be wise. • In some departments, senior staff lacks industry experience outside of the institution. This may lead to errors which well trained professionals typically would not make. • In the experience of a past employee, little to no training and mentoring was provided to junior professionals. Senior staff was at times absent for extended and/or critical periods. • Career growth within some departments of the institution is limited or non-existent. • A insider/outsider culture has developed in administration based on time at the institution. • Performance reviews are simplistic in nature and senior staff has indicated that “no one gets the top score in any category” • Policies of the institution have at times been applied inconsistently between senior and junior staff • Providing constructive and fact-based feedback to senior staff is has been classified as insubordination. • A tendency towards gossip is a concern.
First Assistant Coach (Former Employee) – Worcester, MA – April 12, 2015
Holy Cross was a good learning experience for me and my family. We were able to meet some really nice people throughout the community. The school is a very prestigious academic institution that has a number of alums that have gone on to do tremendous things after their time at Holy Cross. I was fortunate and blessed to have coached at Holy Cross for the past five seasons. I was able to teach, coach, and groom some great young men.
trades (Current Employee) – worcester, ma – December 14, 2014
The pay and benefits have not been updated since the 60's. Most trades are underpaid by at least $10/hr. This is not a true merit shop as people with the same job title and responsibilities can make double based on seniority. It will take you 8 years to acquire 3 weeks vacation and 16 years to acquire 4 weeks. You will be on call all weekdays and only be paid for being on call for weekends in rotation at a whopping $25 before taxes. If pay and benefits could be updated for modern times this would be a fantastic place to work, but don't count on that.
