DCS hires new employees at the beginning of Fall semester for jobs beginning right away, at the end of Fall semester for jobs beginning in the Spring semester, and during the Spring semester for jobs beginning the next Fall. The Diner, Lillis Cafe, Diversions Cafe and Cellar/CStore hire for student lead positions during Spring semester. Summer conferences hires for the summer season during the Spring semester as well.
Current DCS student workers are eligible for transfer opportunities each Spring for the upcoming Academic year. Transfer applicants need to be in good standing with their supervisors/leads to interview.
The University of Puget Sound Dining and Conference Services department employs students in many capacities throughout all of our operation.
Student staff members must sign a University of Puget Sound employment agreement, provide proof of a Pierce County Food Handler's permit and complete harassment training; they may also be required to fill out a tax form and provide proof of eligibility to work in the United States.
Dining and Conference Services keeps applications on file for hiring as needed. Applications are out three times each Academic Year.
Student worker employment agreements are set up for 11/hrs week, DCS does plan and schedule that each student will commit to that hourly arrangement.
