Job Orientation & Training

   1. Departmental Responsibility

      Once a student has been hired for a student employment position, there will be a period of orientation to the job, or on the job training. The department must provide the student employee with a job description and clarify job duties, responsibilities, expectations, and grievance and discipline procedures. If the department has a training manual or departmental student employment handbook, the student should be given a copy. The supervisor also should inform the student employee as to appropriate or inappropriate dress and procedures to follow for securing a substitute if he/she must miss a shift. Sample Orientation Checklist.

   2. Student Responsibility

         1. Conduct

            Student employees, as representatives of the University, will be expected to conduct themselves in a professional and courteous manner and to perform their jobs to the best of their abilities. Responsible conduct includes reporting to work on time and in proper dress, filling out only their own time sheet and notifying the supervisor of any planned absences at least 24 hours in advance.

         2. Drug or Alcohol Abuse

            Student employees are governed by the same drug and alcohol policy that pertains to full-time University employees. Students should review the Student Handbook and ask their supervisor for a copy of the University's policy pertaining to this area.

         3. Use of University Property

            Student employees will be expected to respect University property and to refrain from any unauthorized use thereof. In general, student employees are not permitted to use University equipment or supplies for personal business. The supervisor should inform the student employee about departmental policy concerning this matter.

         4. Confidentiality

            Student employees are expected to maintain the confidentiality of any information or records (written or electronic files) to which they have access. Any breach of confidentiality is considered a serious offense and may lead to disciplinary action and/or discharge.
