Campus Dining Begins Hiring For Summer And Fall Of 2018

tudents who are interested in working part time while taking classes should look into applying for a job with Campus Dining. Penn State Residential Dining is now beginning to hire new team members for this summer and also for fall semester of 2018. With the chance to earn money, grow within the program, and add to a resume, this is an opportunity students do not want to miss.

Unlike other jobs, campus dining understands that employees are students first, and provides very flexible hours that cater to individual class schedules. There is no weekly minimum for hours and students can work up to 40 hours per week in the summer and 20 hours per week in the fall. All student employees earn a competitive wage, starting at $9 an hour with two attendance based raises per semester. Students also have the chance to grow within campus dining through leadership positions such as a crew leader, nutrition assistant, or even a student manager.

Campus Dining cares about the well being of its employees and offers discounted meals at $2, made available to employees either right before or after their shift. Students who do not have time to stay for the meal can grab a quick snack to go at the fueling station, which is stocked with snacks such as baked goods and fresh fruit. Drink stations are always available for student use at all dining hall locations, to ensure employees are hydrated and alert for the duration of their shift.

For those scrambling to look for a last minute job this summer, both East and Pollock dining commons will be open and are currently hiring students to fill summer positions. With flexible hours, students can work as much or as little as they want, dependant upon their schedule. Starting in the summer provides a great chance to learn and earn money, usually with a lighter course load.

Campus Dining also provides job opportunities beyond foodservice. Internships through campus dining in the areas of Public Relations, Sustainability, and Video Production can be enticing for students looking to gain local experience in their field of study. Students interested in Human Resources can even look into joining the summer task force, which allows employees to assist with recruiting and hiring for all dining commons on campus.

Penn State Campus Residential Dining is committed to enriching students’ residential experience. Campus Dining consists of five dining halls and over 35 options of places to eat, always working toward serving quality food and beverages with quick, friendly and responsive service.
