Circulation Student Employee Manual: Late Night Shift

Guide for student employees working in the Circulation Department

Pay Rate and Time Sheet

Student employees who sign up for a late night shift (11 pm to 2 am) must sign a separate contract for this shift, and will be given a separate time sheet to enter these hours.  Students who are contracted to work the late night shift are paid at a higher rate ($10.50 per hour) for these hours.  Students who are not contracted to work the late night shift on a regular basis, but who substitute for another late night shift student, will be paid at the regular rate of $8.75 per hour.
