Dining services is literally a revolving door. I've been there for 3 years and of the 3 years they've been under staffed. None of the management are qualified for their positions. Hourly employees have to do inventory which should be managements job. Communication is non-existent between management & employees. Parking is IMPOSSIBLE for the employees, get use to walking from downtown to campus or get a $100 ticket from security for coming to work. The pay is insulting for everything that you have to deal with.
Given that it was a college, it was an easy and well paced place to work for. My peers and other students I worked with were receptive to my help and my supervisors were always around the lend help whenever needed.
I loved the College of Wooster. An amazing experience that taught me a lot about myself and what it means to be a hard and balanced worker. I grew so much in those four years and would recommend it to anyone.
I had a blast working at the College of Wooster, because it got me closer to other students I would not have known otherwise, as well as gave me an opportunity to stay on campus and work instead of working off campus. A typical day at my job would be to go to class, then lunch, and after I was done eating I would go to work until four. After I would get off I would take an hour to relax and then go to the library to finish homework. The hardest part with working at the College of Wooster was to balance my work schedule with my academic schedule. The most enjoyable part of being at the College of Wooster were to connections I made with the staff and students.
Great work environment, supportive management
The hour cap given to all students (20 hours/week)
Sometimes expected to work with only 6 hours off between shifts. Work ethics didn't apply the same for everyone. Too many friends and relatives working there that received preferred treatment over others
Enjoyed working for International Director of Admissions and students.
International Admissions Staff (Former Employee) – Wooster, OH – April 23, 2013
When first hired we had an exceptional Dept. Manager and upper management did not work with her or communicate with her and she basically had to learn her job by trial and error and the staff tried to help in any way we could.

The College of Wooster is the premier undergraduate college in the United States for student independent study, research and writing. Everything revolves around providing a college experience that will prepare its students for competing in and contributing to the global economy. I love training, supervising and mentoring students.
