The Juice (Students) - May 1

 
May 1, 2017
Wartburg Alert test

The emergency notification system for Wartburg College, Wartburg Alert, will be tested around noon Thursday, May 4. Wartburg Alert is tested, at minimum, once per term. Alerts aren’t automatically sent. You have to register your phone in order to receive alerts. There is no charge for registering, and you may register up to two numbers for text notification and two numbers for voice phones. You are strongly encouraged to register an SMS number to receive a text, as it is the quickest and most reliable means of notification. To register, log into InfoCenter. Then go to the “Offices” drop-down menu and select “Parking & Safety.” Under “Important Resources," click on “Wartburg Alert.” If you have problems registering, stop by the Security Office between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. To verify if you are registered before May 4, send an email to campus.security@wartburg.edu, and we will confirm your registration.

PREVIOUS ANNOUNCEMENTS
 
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.

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.
