Easy work but management is terrible

Cashier (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAJanuary 29, 2016
A typical day at work for me was just making transactions and money exchanges. On my free time, I will restock merchandise, clean the area and organize the station. Co-workers were SJSU students and very relatable and enjoyable to work with, management was easy going and easy to talk to. There was nothing difficult about this job.
Pros
50% off and free drinks.
Cons
None

It was a food court in San Jose State University. Great place to interact with lots of new people. Management was understanding and helped balance work and life.

Great opportunity for freshmen, bad job security.
Dining Commons "Front of House" Worker (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAFebruary 20, 2015
Spartan Shops Dining Commons is a great job for new students who need extra cash. Its very accommodating to freshmen students and the training is very simple. The catch is that once your first year is over or if you decided to leave for academics, its very hard to apply again. Other students have priority and the response time from the staff is very slow. Work stations are easy and simple enough to manage. Breaks are regular and staff is allowed to the food as well.
Pros
great starting job, easy to pick up, and on-campus location.
Cons
staff not always helpful, not very flexible with schedule, and other students have priority over you.

Mongolian BBQ Chef (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAFebruary 4, 2015
I would not recommend working here to anyone. Management is disrespectful and treats its employees poorly. There are also little chances for advancement.
