Fuck UWM and all universities! UW-Milwaukee and their brethren are mediocre. Click banner ads on ClixSense instead; it's a better use of time than a college education in the UW System.

"Quad Graphics" Vending Machine Stocker w/ Emotional Labor Skills,3915544822&key=18513229&c=879887026576&pagestamp=sefzlzilzvkjuwbkbn

“Job Title: Vending Machine Stocker (Part-Time)

Job Description: Quad/Graphics is seeking a part-time Vending Machine Stocker for our Lomira location who will be responsible for executing on-site vending services. Job duties will include all aspects of vending service - filling and cleaning snack and beverage machines, ordering product, downloading product, and basic data entry.

Qualifications: Successful candidates must be self directed, detail oriented, and able to work independently with minimal supervision. In addition, candidates must be able to lift up to 50 pounds and stand and bend continuously with or without reasonable accommodation. Experience with data entry or MS Office Applications, and a valid driver’s license is required. Previous experience working with Quad/Graphics vending machines is required.

Additional External Text: We offer excellent benefits to eligible employees, including 401(k) and profit sharing plans, holidays, vacations and more.”

By contrast with the food service worker in the prior post, the successful vending machine stocker need not have a friendly personality. I suppose Quad screens for personality based on the requirement that the applicant must have worked with “Quad/Graphics vending machines,” as if a soda machine on the Quad campus is somehow operationally different than the one at the local gas station. If you’ve serviced and/or stocked Quad vending machines before, HR apparently knows you will have enough tolerance of your better-heeled coworkers to not go postal the next time they speak loudly about their status in hopes you will overhear. Again, the vacancy description ends with a blurb about benefits for “eligible employees,” which generally excludes part-time workers from participation in the benefits program. The ideal candidate will already know that by virtue of chumming around with other Quad employees during prior service on the Quad vending machines, so it’s not quite as misleading as in the prior post.
