“We receive packages for the entire Twin Cities campus and stock everyday materials that the campus needs to function. U Market Services can also buy commonly used products (such as toilet paper and lab materials) in bulk, which saves departments money.

“The benefits and the people I work with keep me around. Everyone’s usually got a smile on, but if you’re having a rough day we’re here for you. As essential workers we’ve been supporting each other through this entire pandemic. Plus the hours are great. I work 6:30–2:30, which gives me time after work to do whatever I want.

“One big misconception I see is that people outside of the U think you have to have gone to the U to work here. Not at all. It’s a welcoming environment regardless of where or if you went to school. And if you want to, you can take classes for free or reduced price while working here.”—Drew Cramer, Stores Specialist, Teamsters Local 320
