Q: How old do I have to be to work for IU Dining?
A: You must be at least 16 years old to work for IU Dining.
Q: If I’m hired how soon can I expect to start work?
A: Employment with Indiana University is contingent on meeting employment eligibility requirements and passing a criminal background check. Background checks are required for all staff and part-time new hires and rehires who have not had a background check in the previous 12 months. Units submit an electronic background check invitation using the HireRight system. HireRight creates a criminal background check report. The average time that it will take HireRight to complete the report is 1 to 3 business days, although it may take longer depending on factors such as where the applicant has lived, and whether the background check requires adjudication if any SSN validation issues, convictions, sex offender registry findings, or any other records are returned. You can expect to start work after you have successfully passed a criminal background check and completed the other parts of the hiring process, including form I-9 to verify employment eligibility.
With the understanding that the length of the hiring process may vary considerably given background check processing and employment eligibility considerations, it is always our goal to move applicants through the hiring process as quickly as possible. We are excited to have you join our team, and we’ll do our best to make that happen sooner rather than later.
Q: How long will my onboarding/orientation process be?
A: The duration of the orientation/onboarding process depends on the type of position involved. For instance, a management position will have a longer onboarding period than an entry level cook.
Basic orientation/onboarding for any position will be a minimum of two weeks as the applicant completes required E Trainings and mandatory on-site training to prepare them for their new job. Outside of an employee’s initial onboarding/orientation, IU Dining provides on-going training and professional development opportunities.
