Many students have had to learn how to cope with the new change in student employment. Paycom, an online self-service tool, has recently been added to the life of student employees. After talking with Hollie Barna, a Human Resources Graduate Assistant, she shared with me how to apply for student employment using the new platform.
First, you have to go to college central with the following link: https://www.studentcentral.com/CCNEngine/SBHome.cfm. Then, search for the job you’re interested in and fill out the application form. After that, HR receives your applications and sends them to the hiring manager. The manager will then review your application and ask for an interview. Following the interview, the hiring manager will decide if they would like to hire you.
Following all of this, you will then be introduced to Paycom. This is where you will fill out a series of paperwork. You will need to finish all of the paperwork before you are able to start working. Other than this, you will need to take one of the following documents to HR: U.S. Passport, a Foreign passport containing a temporary I-551 stamp, and Employment Authorization Document containing a photograph. If you do not have any of those, you can provide one object from both lists B and list C. List B contains a driver’s license or ID card issued by a State, a school ID card with a photograph, a voter registration card, a U.S. Military card or draft record, a Military dependent’s ID card, a U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Mariner Card, a Native American tribal document, or a driver’s license issued by a Canadian government authority. If you are under the age of 18, you can submit one of the following if you are unable to provide one of the former documents, you are able to provide a school record or report card, a doctor or hospital record, or a day-care or nursery school record. List C contains a Social Security Account Number card, a certification of the report of birth issued by the Department of State, an original or certified copy of the birth certificate issued by a state, a Native American tribal document, a U.S. Citizen ID Card, or an employment authorization document issued by the Department of Homeland Security. After turning in those documents, you must complete your I9 form and make sure it is submitted. After all of that is complete, you will be added to the Moodle page and asked to complete a quiz.
Returning student employees have it much easier since their paperwork is already on file. While they do not have to resubmit all of their paperwork, they still have to get used to the new platform. It may take a while for them to get adjusted to the change depending on how long they have been employed.
While talking with Holly Barna, she informed me that there are several adjustments that need to be made to Paycom and that HR understands and enjoys the feedback students are giving them so that they can fix it. She also talked about how HR is willing to answer any questions students may have about Paycom and will help fix your problems.
