Campus Residential Dining Hosts Hiring Fair At East

Campus Residential Dining will hold a hiring fair for all full-time students at the Private Dining Room at East Food District on Thursday, Jan. 26 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Also known as one of the largest university food services in the country, Campus Residential Dining is a division of Penn State University’s Auxiliary and Business Services and employs more than 1,400 part-time student workers per year. Through the Student Coworker Program, students earn an hourly wage of $9.00, with the opportunity to earn two raises per semester. That is a total of $1.75/hr in raises each year. Campus Dining recognizes that balancing school and part-time employment is a challenge, therefore we provide employees with discounted meals, flexible hours, and no minimum weekly hour requirements.

As a Campus Residential Dining employee, workers are also able to be a part of Nittanyville, Lion’s Pantry, The Food Recovery Network, and THON. Additionally, professional development opportunities and team building activities, such as free ice skating at Pegula Ice Arena or free tickets to a basketball game, are offered to student workers as well. Further, selected students are promoted to Student Managers, Crew Leaders, Student Nutrition Assistants, etc. throughout the semester.

Students who are interested in joining the team 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 and an orientation at their chosen dining unit before beginning a shift. But due to this hiring fair, students get the chance to complete all of these steps at the Private Dining Room at East on Jan. 26. Hope to see you there!
