Next Steps for New Employees

New employees must complete an online training and submit several forms before they can get paid. To make sure that your HR paperwork is filled out properly, please be aware of the following:

  • All new employees​ must bring original documents as valid forms of identification. Photocopies and faxed documents are not acceptable. 
  • Please have your bank name, routing number, and account number available (this is NOT the number on your debit/credit card).
  • Please have the information that is necessary to complete your Federal and State tax forms (e.g. knowing the number of allowances you would like to claim or whether you will claim as exempt from taxes). If you need to consult with a parent or guardian, please do so in advance.
  • Once you have received your HR Hiring Packet you must return the completed packet to HR within three business days.

Tips for Your Job Hunt

If you are looking for a job, please do NOT leave phone messages for the supervisor during the first week of the semester. Because it is such a busy time they will likely be unable to get back to you. The best and only way to communicate with a supervisor in the first week is to visit them in person.

Don't worry about your class vs. work schedule. You and your supervisor will work that out once you know what classes you are in once the work schedule settles down by the second or third week. Auxiliary Enterprises is very flexible when it comes to your studies. After all, that's what you are here for.
