Campus Residential Dining, one of the largest college food service departments in the country, will hold a hiring fair for all full-time students at the Pollock Rec Room on Thursday, Sept. 15 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Campus Dining is a division of Penn State University’s Auxiliary and Business Services and employs more than 1,400 students in its workforce. Through the Student Coworker Program, student coworkers start at $9.00/hr, with the opportunity to earn $1.75/hr in raises each year. They also offer a discounted meal program and flexible hours with a no minimum weekly hour requirement. Through Campus Residential Dining, students are able to be a part of efforts such as Nittanyville, Lion’s Pantry, The Food Recovery Network, and THON. The opportunity also allows students to attend free events that are available only to student coworkers such as ice-skating at Pegula Ice Arena.
Students interested in joining the team responsible for operating five dining commons and five convenience stores at University Park should bring their unexpired passport or social security card and driver’s license along with their bank account information to the hiring fair.
Normally a student would be expected to attend a hiring session at the Student Hiring Office in Redifer Commons and an orientation at their chosen dining unit before beginning a shift. This hiring fair affords students the opportunity to complete all of these steps at one convenient location and at one time.
