A High School Student Worker assists regular employees in the more routine aspects of their jobs and carries out specific assignments under supervision.

PAYROLL TITLE: Student Worker I/II

SALARY: $16.25/Hour


Incumbents may also be eligible for bilingual incentives depending upon operational needs and certification of skills. 

Applications are reviewed on a flow basis as departments submit requests, meaning applications will be reviewed as needed.

You will not be placed on the eligible list until you submit proof of academic/class enrollment. Placement on the eligible list does not guarantee that all candidates will be contacted by hiring managers for interviews nor imply that there are immediate openings available for all selected types of Student Worker positions.

Hiring managers are not obligated to interview every candidate on a list referred to them. Factors to be considered may include education, training, experience and/or work availability.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: A Student Worker may only work for a two (2) year period. During that two (2) year period, a Student Worker may only work a total of 2,080 hours, working no more than 1,040 hours in each year of that two (2) year period.

NOTE: Student Worker I/II is represented by the Service Employees' International Union (SEIU), and incumbents in this bargaining unit are employed as extra-help and are consequently not eligible for benefits.

OPENING DATE:  January 11, 2023
CLOSING DATE:  Continuous and may close at any time; therefore, the schedule for the remainder of the process will depend upon when we receive a sufficient number of qualified applications to meet business needs.
