Beginning was fun, later hectic (from 2011 to 2016)
Cash Handling, Customer Service (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – November 7, 2016
Spartan Shops, Inc was a fun company to work for in the beginning. Test employees by throwing them into the fire and see how they handle the situation. If handled well, employees would get a promotion and the cycle would repeat itself until an employee would either be burned out or quit. Occasionally, employees who are deemed worthy would be put into a manager position and would be expected to train new-hires. Since it is a company in a Cal State University, many student employees are hired and have trouble balancing both a job and school. Overall, I enjoyed my time until the last 2 years or so.
$200 monthly allowance for full-time employees
Managers lack experience and supervisors aren't fully trained on how to train employees
