Student employees: Some info before you go

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

Before saying your goodbyes and hitting the highway there are a few payroll reminders …

  • First, please be sure to lock your time sheets. This will prevent any hold on your paycheck for a signature.
  • Second, be sure your address is up to date with mail services so your paycheck can find you.
  • Another great option is to set up direct deposit before you go, so your pay won’t be delayed by mail. Click this link for the direct deposit form.

Questions? Contact Kasondra Silva in HR at 503-554-2184.
