The Juice (Students) - April 24

April 24, 2017
Pay rate increases for Dining Service and Operations & Maintenance student employees

Effective with June 2017 work hours, Dining Service and Operations & Maintenance college student employees will receive pay rate increases. The pay rate for student assistants will be $8.25/hour (current base pay of $7.50), and the pay rate for student managers will be $9.00/hour (current base pay of $8.30). This will replace the current pay grid in which students receive pay increases for every 200 hours worked in these departments. Anyone presently receiving more than the new pay rate due to the increase for each 200 hours worked will be grandfathered in at their present pay. Office positions in these departments will remain exempt from receiving the pay increases.

The pay increases are intended to help recruit and retain student employees in both departments and, therefore, aid in maintaining quality customer service and daily operations. For more information, please contact Margaret Empie, assistant vice president of dining and retail services, or Keith Strand, director of general maintenance and cleaning.

New option for grab-and-go on GET
Beginning in May Term, the Den will test a new grab-and-go board plan meal on GET: the Snack Pack. The Snack Pack menu choice will allow you to pick five items from a list. The items on this list will be shelf-stable snack items, including several choices that will be easy for a person to stash in their backpack. Food items will be identified as GF (gluten-free), V (vegetarian), DF (dairy-free), and NF (nut-free). As always, it is recommended that you always check the food label for ingredients, as companies may make changes to their retail items.

Student employee wages
Effective June 1, the Wartburg College Student Employment program will require all student employees to deposit their wages directly into their bank account, set up a Student Payroll Deduction Agreement to have wages applied to their tuition account, or arrange a combination of these two options. This change is part of the college’s expense-reduction efforts as well as a way in which we can adapt more sustainable practices. 
Student employment forms 
Direct deposit forms and Student Payroll Deduction Agreements can be picked up in the Student Employment Office, Luther Hall 212, or found on our website. Completed forms should be submitted to the Student Employment Office by their respective deadlines. Questions regarding this change can be directed to Abbie Raum, student employment coordinator, studentemployment@wartburg.edu or 319-352-8350.
