University accommodations run by children
Barista (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – October 10, 2018
No matter where you find yourself working at UT the same story will apply. You will interview with people who tell you that the work environment is everything you'd want in an easy job. They'll assure you that you wont take this work home with you and you'll have plenty of free time to take advantage of their free class per semester policy for full time employees. This couldn't be further from the truth! I work from 6:00am to 5:30pm Monday through Friday then I drive over an hour home through the thick Austin traffic. I have tried time and time again to reduce my working hours but unfortunately I'm good at my job and they refuse to hire help for me so I have to stay to pick up the slack. The professors are rude and entitled, they'll try to take advantage of you at every opportunity. Upper management will tell you that you should act like you own where you work then completely undermine their policies that you were enforcing. The students are understandably stressed and rude. They hit on you non-stop and when it isn't recprocated you are the one at fault. I have been reprimanded for "being rude" when all I did was tell the student that not only is it against the company policy for employees to date student but that I wasn't interested. Then I was told the following, "Don't break the rules, but make sure their happy." I refuse to be bought and sold at my job, I refuse to play these political games.
no breaks, standing all day, incompetent coworkers, lack of support, unorganized, backward policies.
