Student Q&A

Q & A – Student Employment

Question: What if a student worker already works for me?  Do I have to post it?
Answer: If he/she has worked in your department already and the job is the same, then you just need to do the student rehire process.

Question: Do I have to have a posting for each position even if it is the same work?
Answer:  No – if it is the same work being performed, by more than one student worker, then you just need to post one position and hire as many student workers as you need.

Question: Who determines the pay rate for student workers?
Answer:  The Department determines the rate. 

Question: Do departments have control over which documents are required of students who are applying?  Must they have recommendation letters?
Answer:  Documents required for all student postings will include an application, cover letter.  This ties into Student Affairs mission to improve the student employment experience.  If a department wants to add additional documents, or tweak the applicant process to include specific questions, the system can accommodate these requests and HR will work with the departments to program those requests in during the posting process.

Question: If students have already been hired for Spring, do we need to do anything?
Answer:  No

Specific to Lab Assistants

Question: If a student worker is going to be an assistant for multiple sections, does that mean the student worker will have to complete multiple applications?
Answer:  No, you just need one posting for multiple sections and just one application by the student.

Question: What if we need more than one student assistant in a lab course?  Can more than one be hired for the same position?
Answer:  Yes

By making postings general and including multiple sections of class (ex BIOL 1101, BIOL 1102) only one posting is required and applicants will only receive one rejection notice if they are unsuccessful in all the sections filled.  If the sections require different types of experience, then a separate posting for the other sections may be necessary.
