Need money or job experience? Many students find employment on campus each year. Most jobs are in Food Services, though there are a limited number of other opportunities available including working in the library and driving the zamboni!
Jobs generally range from six to 14 hours per week. Pay rate for these general labour jobs is the Saskatchewan minimum wage, so you can expect to earn between $700 to $1600 per semester. Your pay is directly deposited into your bank account every two weeks.
How do I apply for a job?
- Check the bulletin board outside the Human Resources office, room 122 for a blue pocket with narrow flyers that say 'Part Time Employment for 2015/2016'. You are welcome to take this paper copy with you or to take a photo of the poster beside the pocket with your phone. This flyer contains the names of the supervisors as well as their email addresses for the potential part time positions available.
- Email your resume to the respective supervisor. Supervisors who are hiring will call the candidates they want to interview and will make their selections after the interview process.
- Dependent upon need, there may occasionally be some jobs for the next school year posted on the website. If you're interested in any of those, send your electronic resume, along with a cover letter for that specific position to the HR Director at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that we only accept resumes for posted positions. We cannot accept or hold general resumes.
- You must have a Canadian Social Insurance Number. Don't worry if you don't have one yet! You may begin work before it arrives, and we will pay you as soon as you receive a valid SIN. You can talk to the staff at the Human Resources office if you need information about how to apply for an SIN.
- If you're not a Canadian, you may work on campus, but you must apply for a temporary SIN.
How long will I have my job?
Students are hired for one school year and are expected to remain in the same job for the entire year.
