Student Worker Expectations

If you accept a job on campus, in most cases you are making a commitment to work for at least a full semester. The following is expected of all student workers. 

Attendance and Work Schedules

Student workers have part-time schedules (no more than 20 hours a week). Your primary obligation is that of being a student, and we rely on you to not over commit yourself. Any work schedule you arrange should allow you enough time for classes, study, extracurricular activities, and relaxation. Once you have made a commitment to work, your supervisor will expect you to fulfill that commitment.

  • Report to work on time and perform at the highest level of your ability.
  • Make every effort to attend monthly student worker meetings, in addition to any team meetings that may be scheduled (refer to the monthly schedule of student worker meetings).
  • If you are unable to work, you must notify your supervisor no later than 15 minutes before the start of your shift to allow him or her to make alternate arrangements. Substitution policies vary by department; ask your supervisor whether getting your own substitute is expected or acceptable.
  • If you have accepted a job for the semester, ITS will be relying on you even when you have mid-term and final exams. Since you are given your exam schedule in advance, speak to your supervisor ahead of time if you need to adjust your work schedule during that period.

Appearance and Dress

Dress appropriately for the job location. Individual teams may have a dress code for health or safety reasons or in situations where you are highly visible to the community. Your supervisor can describe any specific dress requirements.

Personal Business

Refrain from conducting your own business on the job. This includes initiating/receiving personal phone calls, checking personal e-mail or browsing the internet.

Confidentiality

Act in a professional manner concerning the confidentiality of the College and student records. ITS requires all employees to sign a statement of confidentiality during the hiring process.

Attitude

Exercise responsible, ethical behavior when using College computing facilities.

Time Cards and Pay Checks

Accurately report the hours worked on a bi-weekly timesheet and submit the hours in a timely fashion to your supervisor.
