Student Employment

Interested in working on campus? 

Application Process

  1. Fill out your FAFSA (this is how you will be paid).
  2. HR will send you an offer letter that you must accept online before moving on.
  3. There will be a background check within the same link as the offer letter; you must also complete this.
  4. Before going to your pre-employment screening you will be sent an email with files to fill out. These consist of tax and banking information.
  5. HR will then be in contact with you to set up your pre-employment screening and orientation date. Pre-employment will take 45 minutes to an hour, and Orientation will take up to 4 hours.
  6. During pre-employment you will be given a drug test, eye screening, and then sent to a hospital within Kettering to get blood work done. You must schedule the pre-employment screening, and be aware that they may be booked out pretty far.
  7. After pre-employment you may begin orientation. Orientation will consist of voice over slideshows you must read and click through. There will be a quiz at the end of each slideshow in which you need at least an 80% to pass. This orientation is completely online, and you get paid for doing it.
  8. After you complete both pre-employment and orientation, this is when you can begin working.

Be sure to contact Career Services so you can be placed on a list of applicants for student employment. Work study supervisors use this list to select students for interviews.
