Your Duties

Dining Welcome Team members will float in the entryways, serveries and seating areas of our dining venues (Phelps, Cook and possibly Kletz Market) to answer questions, direct students to the shortest lines and available seats, offer tips for an enhanced dining experience, listen to suggestions, ideas or concerns, and provide feedback to our larger dining team regarding the operation and experiences of our venues.

Requested Commitment

We are asking Dining Welcome Team members to consider helping in one to three 1-hour shifts during the first two weeks of a semester.

There will be a training/orientation session on Wednesday, August 23, at 10–10:30 a.m. and 3–3:30 p.m. (choose one). Invitations will be sent to anyone signed up.

Member Perks
  • An attractive, attention-grabbing apron to be easily seen by students and other diners
  • A free meal at the dining venue for each shift taken
  • Exclusive back-of-house tours of the college dining operation and collegial relationships with all dining staff

If you'd like to join the team and help, please email Melissa Smith, director of dining, at msmith@creativedining.com.
