Penn State Campus Dining Offers Unique Employment Opportunities For Students

As a college student, finding the perfect balance between life, school, and work can be a challenge. It’s difficult to find the perfect job that’ll allow flexibility at a competitive rate, but students in search of an opportunity don’t have to venture too far.

Penn State Campus Dining listened to past student employees and made some changes for the upcoming school year. It now offers students the ability to at least $9 per hour with the potential to make up to $18.50 per hour with commitment and a few semesters under your belt, while providing students with a vertical structure in which career advancement is achievable.

The new Student Coworker Program is student friendly, and builds itself around the busy schedules of Penn State students. For starters, there is no minimum hour requirement, allowing for scheduling flexibility — which comes in handy around holiday season. The program actually structures its scheduling platform so that it doesn’t penalize students for taking holiday time off.

Along with free events scattered throughout the year to build camaraderie like a tour of Pegula Ice Arena and a Sushi rolling class, the program provides students free food and beverage to employees via fueling stations to keep morale and energy high.

While working and attending Penn State at the same time is undeniably tough, Penn State Campus Dining wants to ease the burden. Contact residential dining coordinator Jim Meinecke at 814-867-6357 if you have any questions.
