Hiring Process For Student Employees

The University Libraries MAINLY hires students with a verified Work-Study Eligibility obtained through UNLV Student Financial Services.

1. Submit a UNLV Libraries Student Employment Application online.               
2. Student work-study eligibility will be verified with UNLV Student Financial Aid Services by Library Administration Human Resources.
3. The Online application will be updated to indicate if the student is work-study eligible or not.  
4. Library supervisors who are hiring student employees will select candidates from the Libraries Student Employment Application Database and will call or email candidates for an interview.
5. After the hiring supervisor and student agree on a start date, the supervisor will contact Library Administration Human Resources to set up an appointment for the new student employee to complete a hiring packet. 

NOTE: Student Employees must complete all hiring paperwork before reporting to work
The initial employment paperwork includes:

  •  W-4 tax form: establishes tax withholding allowance.
  •  I-9 Employment Eligibility form: ensures that the student is eligible to obtain work within the United States
  •  Drug-free Workplace agreement: commits you to a drug-free workplace
  •  Payroll Action Form (PAF): initiates payroll
  •  Sexual Harassment Policy
  •  Personal Data Sheet

Every semester thereafter, student employees must complete an updated Payroll Action Form (PAF) before each semester begins. Student supervisors will inform their employees when PAFs are ready for signature. Students will not be paid for hours worked before signing their PAFs.
Students will sign a total of three Payroll Action Forms (PAFs) each year:

  •  Fall semester (covering 8/28/16 - 1/17/17)
  •  Spring semester (covering 1/18/17 - 5/14/17)
  •  Summer semester (covering 5/15/17 - 8/27/17)
