The Culinary Institute of America

  • On-Campus Employment

    Various departments within The Culinary Institute of America hire student workers for temporary employment. Job opportunities are posted daily on CIA Main Menu. If you are interested in working on campus, you must submit an employment application, which you can complete online from CIA Main Menu. Please note that Federal Work-Study students receive priority in hiring; however, campus employment is not guaranteed.

    When you are hired, you must complete new-hire paperwork, including an I-9 (a form required by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security that establishes your eligibility to work in the United States) and W-4. The I-9 form requires a presentation of original documentation to verify eligibility. Please refer to CIA Main Menu for a copy of these documents.

    You are not to begin work of any kind prior to receiving your work authorization card. You should present this card upon request to confirm eligibility. Once you start your job, you should talk with your supervisor about the procedures to follow to ensure proper payment, including payroll deadlines for timesheet submission. Students may work up to 20 hours per week.

    As a student employee, you have the option to sign up for direct deposit at a local bank or a bank at home. To begin direct deposit, you'll need to provide the CIA's Payroll Office with the name of your bank, its routing number (also referred to as the transit ABA number), and your checking or savings account number. A form will be provided with your employment materials.
