Wages & Perks


Term-time jobs pay a competitive starting wage of $16.25/hr and reward employees' dedication and length of service with generous pay raises up to $17.25/hr by the end of your first year of employment. If you work reliably throughout the year and are invited to participate in our intensive leadership training program for Dorm Crew Captains, you can earn as much as $18.25/hr as you advance through the program.

Employee Perks:

  • Flexible Hours: Dorm Crew offers employees the most flexible hours of any job on campus. Most employees set their own hours, and your hours can vary from week to week. Some jobs can be completed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, whenever is convenient for you!
  • Rewards: Dorm Crew employees can earn a variety of rewards—water bottles, t-shirts, jackets, sweatshirts, and more!—in recognition of service milestones such as being named employee of the month, earning a promotion to Captain, and many others.
  • Extra Toilet Paper: All Dorm Crew employees are entitled to a fourth roll of toilet paper when picking up toilet paper from the Dorm Crew office!
