Vital Vittles

Vital Vittles is the flagship service of the Corp. Opened in 1973, Georgetown’s only on-campus grocery store draws in hundreds of customers every day who are looking for everything from a gourmet lunch option to essential toiletries and cosmetics. Our employees, or “Vitalians”, hail from every region of the United States and across the globe. We are actors, club sports athletes, stand-up comedians, tour guides, writers, tutors, and personas that extend beyond any title. Everyone from our cashiers to our management team is passionate about providing customer service and coming up with innovative ways to improve the store. We are constantly looking for motivated Georgetown undergraduates who will both take their job seriously, and be excited to join the Vittles family. As an employee, you will have the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects, and be a part of the middle or upper management of the store. So whether you’re looking for an unparalleled hands-on business experience, or simply love grocery stores, Vital Vittles is the place for you!

A Day in the Life at Vittles

Vittles employees typically work three shifts per week, although some people can work as many as five or more shifts per week, plus any additional work they do to keep the store running. On shift, employees do one of three tasks: stocking products on our shelves, ringing up customers, or managing the store’s daily operations. When employees aren’t completing other tasks, they may help cash at the registers. Vittles loves to hang out together inside and outside the store. We’ve organized everything from go kart racing to movie nights to 90s themed dance parties. Every employee is considered part of the Vittles family, and no matter what we’re doing, we always find a way to have fun.

The Hilltoss

The Hilltoss is the Corp’s newest storefront and its first fast-casual restaurant. After opening its doors in November 2014, The Hilltoss has quickly become a fixture at Georgetown, serving salads, smoothies, and acai bowls. From prepping ingredients in the kitchen to tossing on the line, employees of The Hilltoss get comprehensive experience in working at a restaurant. The Hilltoss and its employees pride themselves on being a center for healthy living on campus and eagerly look to share their passion and love of adventure with others.

A Day in the Life at the Hilltoss

Employees of The Hilltoss generally work three shifts a week where they perform a variety of tasks from making food on the salad line or smoothie station to prepping ingredients in the kitchen. People at The Hilltoss share in a love of healthy living and embracing adventure and new experiences. The Hilltoss is the Corp’s largest service that draws employees from all across Georgetown.

Corp Catering

The Corp’s smallest service, Corp Catering prides itself on being tight-knit, supportive, and engaged. Given our size, the unique work we do, and an ingrained affinity for mentorship, new Caterers quickly become a part of our diverse and welcoming family. Professionally, Catering offers opportunities to hold leadership positions earlier than most other services, which allows you to learn the intricacies of the service and the Corp in general at a young age. Caterers are engaged, energetic, enthusiastic, and empathetic and we apply those qualities to our diverse interests.

Hoya Snaxa

Opened in 2003, Hoya Snaxa operates in the breezeway of the Southwest Quad, serving students and Georgetown employees alike. As one can probably tell from the name, snacks are Snaxa’s specialty. But, this proud snack shop also offers other items such as sandwiches, salads, and sushi.
While what we sell is important, it’s the people that truly define Hoya Snaxa. We take our jobs seriously, but never ourselves. We work hard, but make sure to have fun doing it. Our store is warm, both literally and figuratively: things heat up with all our machines operating in such a small space, but we also have friendly employees who create an atmosphere that is incredibly welcoming for our customers. When students come into Snaxa at 12 am in need of a Ben and Jerry’s fix, they often joke that Snaxa is their second home. We take pride in this.

A Day in the Life at Snaxa

A new hire at Snaxa generally works three shifts as a cashier their first semester, after which they have the option to be trained as a manager, so they can oversee other cashiers and take on more responsibility in the store. Being on shift at Snaxa is cool because you get to interact with a wide range of people: facilities workers, GUTS bus drivers, students, professors – they all come to Snaxa. Shifts aren’t too busy, so you get to know your fellow employees really well. Snaxa likes to hang out at casual movie nights, Wingos included. And Booeys. We love Booeys.

MUG

More Uncommon Grounds (MUG) does not take its nickname lightly – what “the little cart with a big heart” lacks in space behind the counter, it makes up for with family-style employee bonding and a shared passion for espresso. Our small size helps give MUG a family feel – MUG friends are friends for life. Whether it’s playing invented games at “family game nights,” going to Nats games for $1 dogs, or exploring the DC brunch scene, MUGgers are always looking for an excuse to hang out outside of store hours. MUG also values our close relationship with the ICC community of professors, deans, students, and visitors from around the world. You’ll soon learn the names and drink orders of some of your favorite professors–and who knows? They might keep your excellent customer service in mind when grading your next midterm. MUG is a fast-paced and exciting workplace where you’ll learn how to crush the between-classes rush and earn your stripes as an all-star barista. There is also a lot you can learn about the ins and outs of running a business–processing payroll, analyzing performance metrics, managing a team, creating marketing campaigns, and crafting strategies to maximize profit. Stop by MUG at any time if you have questions about applying, we would love to talk to you.

Midnight MUG

The Midnight Mug, The Corp’s largest coffee service, seeks to feed and caffeinate the denizens of Lauinger Library. We are a haven for all students and professors in need of a boost while trucking away in the library, whether at 8 am or 2 am. Midnight employees are dedicated to not just providing coffee or bagels to the students of Georgetown, but a full experience in our store, from our diverse musical selections (summer hits of the 2000s, anyone?) to our FML wall (because finals are the worst) to our variety of daily discounts (like using a pick-up line on your cashier for 5% off!). We’re looking for a fun-loving, hardworking, and dedicated crew to work as cashiers, baristas, and stockers in our bustling store. Our employees have the opportunity to go above and beyond, rising to positions of responsibility within our store and in The Corp as a whole. From laser tag to whip flips, Book Club to calendar shoots to our champion soccer team, Midnight is a Lau 2 family, and we want you to become a part of it!

A Day in the Life at Midnight

Located on the second floor of Lauinger Library, Midnight MUG is there for students during the busiest days and longest nights of the school year. Most employees work three shifts per week, opening early in the morning and closing as late as 2am. Taking customer orders and making drinks is hard work during peak hours, especially in midterm and finals season, but we make it fun. We blast music, bust out some dance moves behind the counter, and take pride in coming together to make it all happen. Midnight loves posting up at Booeys for a night, spontaneous dance parties, Sunday night dinners brought to you by a few resident culinary experts, intramural sports, and the occasional in-store movie night. Get ready to inherit a family of weirdos who can always be counted on for a study buddy or a study break.

Corp Marketing

Corp Marketing is a tight-knit and collaborative group of creative minds working to build and maintain The Corp’s brand across all storefronts and platforms. A mix of strategic brains, Photoshop whizzes, doodler-extraordinaires, and data-driven minds, every Marketer brings to the table a unique skill set and personality. For those looking to get hands on professional experience in marketing for an exciting and growing company, the IT+M office is the place for you. When not working hard behind the scenes of The Corp and spending time together in the Leavey office, our Marketers can be found crossing over at their favorite services, exploring DC together restaurant by restaurant, or huddling up for much anticipated movie nights.

Corp IT

Corp IT is the engine that runs the action behind-the-scenes of The Corp. Everything from fixing hardware issues in various storefront to building campus’ beloved Classy website, to data and analytics management, members of the IT department gain hands on, invaluable tech experience, and enjoy a tight knit group of coworkers in and out of the office.

Corp Accounting

Corp Accounting is the smallest service, but our size makes us that much closer. When we aren’t counting cash or reconciling accounts, you can find us bumping everything from Springsteen to Chance in our patriotic office or hosting family-style home cooked meals for the whole squad. A Corp Accountant is a personality, not a skill set – so we encourage students with all interests and backgrounds to apply! In this close-knit group of hard working numbers nerds you will find incredible mentorship, early opportunities to lead, and friends for life.

  • Any advice for the application process?

    "Be yourself and don't be afraid to have fun! Give yourself enough time to really think about which application suits your best because the questions specific to each service help you learn about that service as well."

  • Why did you apply to The Corp?

    "... I'm kind of quirky. Applying to The Corp was my way of finding friends who are just as weird as I am, if not more. I knew that these were strange and exciting, but simultaneously ambitious and hard-working Corpies. I wanted to surround myself with new friends that were motivated to do well and be themselves, and that's why I applied to The Corp."

  • Why did you apply to The Corp?

    "I'm a little rare I think in that I applied to the Corp because I needed a job. I wanted to meet people and have a group of friends I could hang around, but really I had a few thousand dollars in Federal Work Study that I needed to start taking advantage of. I looked at my options and the Corp seemed like the only on-campus job where people worked together and were also best friends. I was totally into that idea, so I applied, and it turned out exactly as I had hoped: many of my best friends at Georgetown now are Corpies."

  • Any advice for the application process?

    "I can’t think of an application to anything that has not asked you to be yourself…definitely be yourself. But the most important thing I’d say is go out on a limb. Really go out on a limb. For the written application, take a risk with the answers. Put the effort in, but don’t write massive essays. Be serious for serious questions and have fun with open questions."
