Finding Jobs On Campus

Searching for a student employment position at APU is similar to obtaining employment with other businesses. As you search for on-campus work and apply, the Office of Student Employment can offer guidance throughout the process and will ensure that all hire-related documentation is obtained and accurate in accordance with California and federal employment law and practice.

Before you begin your job search:

  1. Verify that you meet the Eligibility Requirements (PDF) for working on campus.
  2. Complete an On-Campus Student Employment Application (PDF).
  3. Have original identification necessary to obtain employment. Photocopies of identification will not be accepted. View the List of Acceptable Documents for Hire (PDF).

Job search steps:

Step 1: View Available Positions
Many on-campus student positions are posted in the job binder located inside the Office of Student Employment on East Campus (view map). In addition, many departments post jobs online using the APU Career Network.

Most departments and offices on campus hire student employees. Although a formal open position may not be posted, student jobs may be available. Students are encouraged to take a copy of their application directly to the hiring supervisor in a department or office that is of interest to them. View the List of Departments and Student Employment Positions (PDF).

Step 2: Complete an Application and Interview
The student is responsible for bringing a completed application to the hiring supervisor. Supervisors may schedule interviews with those they are interested in pursuing. Students are encouraged to follow up with hiring supervisors to discuss the status of their application.

Step 3: Hire and Process Appointment
Once a supervisor has approved a student for hire, a process appointment will be set up through the Office of Student Employment prior to employment. During the appointment, an HR coordinator in Student Employment will walk the student through completing all hire paperwork necessary for employment. This includes completion of a W-4 tax form and an I-9. Original identification and documentation necessary to obtain employment will be viewed at this time; photocopies will not be accepted. Once all necessary documentation has been collected, the student will be entered into the university’s automated timekeeping system and may begin employment.

Step 4: Respect and Esteem Training
Upon hire, all student employees will be required to complete Respect and Esteem Training. This 45-minute, online training course is paid time. A copy of the completion certificate must be printed and delivered to the Office of Student Employment.

AB 1825, California’s mandatory sexual harassment training law (codified at Cal. Lab. Code § 12950.1), was adopted by the California legislature in 2004. Starting on January 1, 2006, all employers with 50 or more employees were required to provide at least two hours of sexual harassment training once every two years for supervisors located in the state of California.

The Office of Student Employment at Azusa Pacific University, in compliance with the law and in order to provide a God-honoring work environment that encourages respect and esteem for each member of the community, requires Respect and Esteem Training at least every two years (within two weeks of hire) for all faculty, staff, and student employees at all APU locations. This policy is consistent with valuing the safety and comfort of each employee and striving to create respectful, productive workplace dynamics across all offices and departments.

Step 5: Work, Timekeeping, and Paydays
Supervisors will provide students with a work schedule and review any pertinent information necessary for the particular position for which the student has been hired. Students should also review the Student Employment Handbook (PDF) before beginning work. Students will be expected to log all hours worked into our automated timekeeping system. View the Timekeeping Policy (PDF). Students will be paid on a bi-weekly basis. View the Bi-Weekly Payroll Calendar: January–December 2017 (PDF) for specific dates.
