Senior Week Employment
During senior week it is necessary for students who will be working for Campus Dining to be housed in the residence halls. These students work for Campus Dining or Building Services during the week and for Campus Dining over the weekend. In order to successfully accommodate all the guests of the University during this busy time, it takes a great number of workers. The student workers are a vital part of this work force. In order to employ this large number of workers, Campus Dining and Building Services have developed a specific contract required for these students in order to successful accommodate the needs of both groups over the week and weekend. It is imperative that the students follow these procedures in order to ensure timely and accurate compensation as well as successfully service the University community.
Campus Dining offers many incentive programs for student employees. We pay a differential increase for positions that start after 10:00 pm and before 9:00 am. Other pay incentives are available for specific positions within some of our operations.
