Hiring

Step 1: Farm unit postings that are open on a continuous basis need to be resubmitted to HR yearly. Most of them come due in July/early August. Check the end date of your unit’s farm posting for more accurate information. If a PI will be hiring a student(s) they will, more than likely, need to fill out a noncompetitive request form (ask Sean Bodo for this form). If the student(s) you want to hire are not uniquely qualified, the PI must post a student position via Oregon State’s website and Student Employment (ask Sean Bodo for help).

Step 2:  Once you have chosen a candidate(s) to hire you will email Sean Bodo to submit the request to Student Employment. They will submit the hire paperwork and reach out to the student(s) in question with the required Canvas trainings. Sean Bodo will also set up a meeting via Zoom or in person to go over the required Canvas trainings.

Step 3: The hiring unit manager/PI will start the Animal Exposure Form process. Go to this link and proceeded with inputting the required information. Click "Begin Signing" and you will start the process of completing the Animal Exposure Form. Once you and the student worker(s) have signed it will be automatically forwarded to the Occupational Health office.

Step 4: The student(s) will compete the Canvas trainings while awaiting the cleared to work email. NO STUDENT should start working before they have received this cleared to work email.

Step 5: The PI/unit manager, student, and Sean Bodo receive the cleared to work email. The student(s) can now start working.

 

Termination Request

Step 1: When a student worker leaves their position or the position ends we will need to submit a termination request. To do this please email the name of the student(s) and their OSU ID number(s) to the Sean Bodo who will start the process. In the email, along with the OSU ID number, include the date of termination and the reason for termination. The reason for termination can be one of the following: graduated/no longer a student, death, or other. If you choose other, please explain why in the email.


Please visit this link for instructions on filling out and submitting your timesheet.

Hard copy versions of the hourly and salary timesheets can be found in the AnRS departmental BOX folder.
