Duration of Employment


Although many of us would like to think otherwise, no job can be considered permanent. The department works on a supply and demand basis. As a season comes to an end the number of individuals working in that particular sport may be reduced. Employment is seasonal. The department will make efforts to retain its quality employees.




It is essential that each employee accept responsibility for the success of the program. If a student employee is found to be negligent in their duties, certain disciplinary actions will be taken according to the nature of the offense. Student employees may be placed on probation, suspension or be terminated for any of, but not limited to, the following:


  1. Lack of work
  2. Poor attendance
  3. Unsatisfactory job performance
  4. Mistreatment or abuse of fellow employees


Payroll Procedure


Paychecks are issued biweekly on Fridays. Paychecks can be picked on Friday at the Sports Center Membership Office between the hours of 9am-5pm. Employees must initial for receipt of the check. Pay periods are on a two-week interval. Therefore students receive checks for time worked during the previous two weeks.




Office workers will be evaluated each semester by the supervisor and IM Director. This evaluation will help to serve as a guide to future assignments. It is also intended to give you feedback on your performance. It is not intended to be a negative report; instead it will help you to become a better official through instruction. Evaluations may be unannounced and random.



Office workers starting pay is $7.10/hr depending on the sport and the amount of experience.
