In anticipation of the opening of the Knight School of Management this spring, a wave of Taco Bell employees arrived on campus this week. These workers said that they were looking for a step up in managing the graveyard shift.
The Flipside caught up with Juan Zelchez at the construction site of the Knight School, where he was also working a second job as a construction worker. “For me, night manager is good position,” said Zelchez, adding that “night management very competitive.”
Other workers discussed the effects of globalization and outsourcing in the night management industry. They see a Stanford degree as a way to fight these trends.
Stanford has begun contacting local community colleges to see if they could train the workers, however many administrators at Stanford believe that enrolling them could be good for diversity.
