Student Labor Hiring Procedure

To ensure consistency and fairness in the hiring of student labor the following process should be followed for all student labor positions.  Not only will this process ensure that the best candidate is chosen for the position, but it will also allow our students an opportunity to be a part of an interview.  From this experience, it is our hope that they will be better prepared for an interview after graduation. 

Student Pay Policy 

Dakota State University’s policy is to compensate these services using the salary schedule. The schedule reflects the Federal and State minimum wage; differing knowledge, skills, and abilities; and to the degree feasible, the market demand for the area. This schedule will be modified to reflect any future changes in Federal and State wage scales.
