  • Having a Work-Study grant is desired, but not required for employment.
  • Students have the responsibility to effectively communicate all conflicts in a timely manner with their supervisor.
  • The weekly schedule (for Monday through Sunday) is typically posted by the Friday prior via TrackSmart Scheduling.  Your supervisor will set you up with access during training. Hours vary depending on the events & activities that SPS is supporting.
  • You are expected to be on time for all shifts and dressed appropriately for work.
  • Good communication skills and ability to work as a team with your peers are required of all student staff.
  • Training will be provided for all staff.
