The COUGS AWARDS program recognizes employees who exceed our expectations and benefit Dining Services with their actions and attitudes. If you are nominated for a COUGS AWARD you will have exemplified one of our Dining Values in some way: Considerate, Obligated, United, Genuine and/or Sincere. Look in your employing dining facility for more specific information about this program. WE ARE COUGS! Each week 2 COUGS AWARD recipients from each unit will receive a COUGS AWARD Earned Meal Slip good for up to 1 week from issue.
You are eligible for an Earned Meal if you work 4 or more hours per day in one unit. Earned Meals may be used after working 4 or more hours total in one day or during a break within those 4 hours to be worked. Only one Earned Meal can be earned per day. The cashier will not process the sale without an Earned Meal Slip. After ringing up the sale, the cashier will have you sign the Earned Meal Slip and your receipt. Any food purchased with an Earned Meal Slip must be consumed on the premises and only by the employee who earned the meal. To-go containers are not allowed for food purchased with an Earned Meal Slip. Your Earned Meal Slips must be used at the facility where they are earned. The Slip must be used within 24 hours of the issued time and date; if the Earned Meal Slip is not used during that time frame, it is no longer valid. If you spend over the current maximum Earned Meal price, you must repay the difference. If you use the Earned Meal Slip after it expires or without working the minimum 4-hour shift, you will have to pay it back. Earned Meal Slips are never allowed to be used in the Markets.
