How do I fix conflicts between themes and wpmudev plugins?

I am using the JobRoller theme for several job board sites, and it seems to conflict with a handful of wpmudev plugins, but to me it looks like something that would be an easy fix if I wasn't so rusty with my php and wordpress core development. The thing is, both wpmudev plugins, and the JobRoller theme, add custom menu items to the dashboard for their settings and whatnot. The problem, they are both trying to take up the same spot. The theme loses, and wpmudev plugins take the menu tab spot of the theme, making it almost impossible to change the theme settings, or finish setting the site up if it isn't all configured already.
I wonder if somebody can help me figure out to solve this problem so that I can just freely use the dashboard plugin and JobRoller theme at the same time?
