Students still looking for a part-time job this semester should consider applying to Campus Dining. This is an on-campus opportunity, with competitive wages, the chance for advancement, flexible scheduling and a care for employees’ wellness.

Campus Dining starts all employees at $9 an hour. All employees also receive a raise every other month as long as he/she is hired before the raise dates, and has consistent attendance. If hired before October 1, new employees will receive a $.50/hr raise up to $9.50/hr. On top of bi-monthly raises, there are many promotable opportunities such as Crew Leader, Culinary Apprentice and Student Nutrition Assistant, that all come with a pay increase.

Scheduling flexibility is an important question to ask for busy college students. To prevent students from overloading their schedules, Campus Dining does not allow students to work more than 20 hours per week. There is also no weekly minimum hour requirement. Employees submit their availability based on their class schedule, and their work schedule is made accordingly. Student employees are also given one holiday shift per semester. This allows for one day that the coworker can call off at least 24 hours in advance, and not be penalized.

Campus Dining also shows their concern for employee wellness by providing opportunity for workers to keep well-nourished. If assigned a lunch or dinner shift, employees can arrive before clock-in time, or stay after clock-out and purchase a significantly discounted meal for $2. If there is not enough time for a full meal prior to, or after the shift, Campus Dining also has fueling and drink stations. The fueling stations provide either a fruit, baked good or snack depending on the day and availability. Drink stations always have water, but other beverages may also be available.

Campus Dining is committed to enriching students’ residential experience. With five dining halls on campus, and over 35 options of places to eat, Campus Dining works towards serving quality food and beverages at all times, with quick, friendly and responsive service.
