What I like about the company

The people in my department are decent for the most part.

What I dislike about the company

The administration is not connected to everyone. The general culture caters to the full-time and tenured research faculty.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More air conditioning during hot fall months

What I like about the company

Virginia Tech is the great place to work. As a salary employee you get 401K, health insurance, chance to get education for free (it implies to all full time employees), opportunity to have a very long paid vacation up to 3 months. I started working there 2 years ago and I'm happy to work within Virginia Tech dining services.

What I dislike about the company

Low starting pay for new employees. 9.25 per hour is probably good pay for students, but not for full time parents and just adults. And every fall semester every employee does work that 3 employees do because of extremely short staff.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Less turn over, maybe more little things given to employees. Such as lunches here and there to acknowledge their efforts

What I like about the company

Working for VT as a whole I feel like just a number but working at the vet school I feel all administration cares and sees the work I do and appreciates my efforts. It’s wonderful to have a “pat on the back” from my highest administration.

What I dislike about the company

Communication and consistency between departments is often lacking. I wish administrators would tell supervisors a particle way of doing things rather than asking us to figure it out amongst ourselves. I feel like we never come to a solution
