I am interested in being a chef for Dolci.  What steps must I take to do so?
Being a chef for a Dolci meal is a fun, but big, job.  You need to be excited about cooking, about creating your own menu, and about making your diners happy.  The job includes designing a menu, finding recipes, organizing the prep and cooking schedules, and managing the staff.  Before you become a chef for Dolci, there are several steps of preparation you must take:
  1. You must attend a Chef Meeting with the managers of Dolci (this typically happens at the beginning of each semester).  
You must attend a mandatory sanitation meeting with Matthew Biette.
  3. You must have some experience in the Atwater kitchen.  This means that you must work at least one Dolci shift (as a prep chef or cook) before becoming a chef.
Once these requirements have been filled, you are ready to be a chef for Dolci!

How do I get paid for my work at Dolci?

When you work at Dolci for the first time, to get paid you must:
  1. Go to SEO, which is located next to the Service Building behind McCullough. There, all students who choose to work on campus must complete a W-4 form and an I-9 form. The I-9 is a Federal form that verifies employment eligibility for working in the U.S. Once you complete an I-9 and W-4 you will receive a blue card which indicates that you are authorized to work on campus. To complete the I-9 you MUST bring either one item from List A or alternatively, one item each from List B AND List C. See http://www.middlebury.edu/offices/business/seo/files/node/4071/original/Acceptable_I9_Documents.jpg for the complete list of acceptable documentation. International students who have not already should apply for a Social Security number/card.  Feel free to visit the Student Employment Office’s website for further information. 
  2. Get a green card from Ian Martin (Atwater) or pick one up at the SEO.  
  3. Fill out the green card and bring it with you to your shift. Before you leave Atwater, make sure it's been signed by Ian.
  4. Drop the green card off at SEO.
  5. When your employment paperwork and green card has been processed by SEO, a new tab will appear on your BannerWeb homepage titled “Employee”.  You must enter the hours that you worked on the applicable Time Sheet.  If you have received your blue card, your green card  and submitted a timesheet but still have not received a check, call the Student Employment Office at (802) 443-5377 for help.
If the pay period has ended and you have not entered your hours:
  1. On BannerWeb, click the "Employee" tab. (This will not show up unless you have submitted your green card that you should have obtained from either Ian or Carl)
  2. Select the Time Sheet link.
  3. From the drop-down menu, select the appropriate pay period (the pay period closest to the date of the Dolci you worked for if that actual pay period is over).
  4. On the next page, you will see two rows. Because you are entering hours for a previous pay period you will need to click Enter Hours in the BOTTOM row for the appropriate days (Tuesday/Wednesday or Thursday/Friday). 
  5. Enter your hours in the box that shows up towards the top and click Save.
  6. Click the button that says Comments and on the page that follows write the day you actually worked. Something along the lines of "Actual date(s) of work was/were 9/30 (and 10/1)." Click save.
  7. Go back to the time sheet and click Submit for approval. You will then need to enter your BannerWeb PIN, but then you are done!

I would like to team up with Dolci to co-sponsor a fundraiser or event.  Is this possible?
We often get inquiries from groups about the possibilities to co-sponsor a Dolci, and/or reserve a certain number of tickets for their members. While we are thrilled by the interest, we strive for Dolci to be open to the whole campus and have a limited number of weeks where we can allocate tickets to certain groups. Feel free to contact us if you are interested in collaborating with Dolci on one of your events, but please accept our apologies if we cannot accommodate you.  Dolci remains committed to providing equal opportunities for all students to eat at Dolci, and thus avoids fundraisers requiring tickets to be purchased.
