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 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.

Step 2: Complete an Application and Interview

The student is responsible for bringing a completed cop yof his/her application to the hiring supervisor. Supervisors may schedule interviews with individuals they are interested in interviewing. Students are encouraged to follow up with hiring supervisors to discuss the status of their application.

Step 3: New Employee Onboarding Paperwork

After a supervisor has recommended a student for hire, the student will receive an email with a link to the electronic onboarding portal, SilkRoad Onboarding. This portal contains required paperwork such as the W-4 tax form and the form I-9. The portal also has links to useful information such as the timekeeping system, payroll calendar, and campus map. Keep in mind that additional tasks will become available after the initial tasks are completed. Be sure to continue to check the task list after you complete each step.

Step 4: Reviewing Identification to Complete Form I-9

After the student employee has completed the onboarding paperwork, he/she must bring identification to the Student Employment office to complete form I-9. Original identification is necessary to obtain employment; photocopies cannot be accepted. Once all necessary documentation has been reviewed, the student will be entered into the university’s timekeeping system and may begin employment. Note that no student should start working until he/she has been entered in the timekeeping system.

Step5 : Respect and Esteem Training

Upon hire, all student employees will be required to complete Respect and Esteem Training. Time spent completing this online training course is paid time.

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 2 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 6: 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 2018 (PDF) for specific dates.
