How to get your Money:
Direct Deposit
Apply to Student Account
Wages are SUBJECT to federal and state income taxes

What if I don't like the job?
Be HONEST with your supervisor
DON'T avoid talking to them
If the position doesn't fit your interests and strengths, let your supervisor know
Can I get fired?
Yes, but it RARELY happens
Student employees are employed on an at-will basis
Supervisors have the right & ability to release you from a specific assignment
* Remember!
You are BLESSED to have supervisors who acknowledge that academics are your priority, BUT don't take advantage of this
This is a REAL JOB, and you have a REAL COMMITMENT to your superviors * THEY COUNT ON YOU!
Supervisors can be your BEST references!
