Working for UTemps

Directions

See the map and directions to the UTemps office.

Assignment length

The length of each UTemp assignment varies. The "projected ending date" is flexible and many temporary assignments are extended. However, each job placement is a separate action and you aren't guaranteed another position. When your assignment is completed you'll have to compete for the next available position.

If a department is recruiting for a vacancy and you meet the requirements for that job, then you may be eligible to compete for the job vacancy with all of those who apply. Your demonstrated skills and work record as a UTemp can be considered by hiring managers.

Starting

You'll begin as soon as your department needs you, which could be the next day.

High-assurance EID

Note: This is a very important step A high-assurance EID is required to access most online services, such as compliance training and “Paycheck Profile” as well as the business systems you will use on the job.

Pay rate

The current minimum hourly pay rate is $11.01 an hour. Salary will vary depending on the level of the job and the skills required.

Parking

With each assignment, you'll be offered a chance to purchase a temporary "A" parking permit from Parking and Transportation Services. This will allow you to park in any "A" permit spot on campus. The permit is good for one month from the date of purchase.

Dress

Since you're being evaluated, you should dress professionally. This could include business attire as established by your hiring department or casual attire, such as slacks, shirts with collars and comfortable shoes.

Returning to UTemps

If you've previously worked with UTemps and would like to be placed back in the applicant pool, contact UTemps by e-mail or calling 512-232-TEMP (8367), and say that you've previously worked as a UTemp and would like to be placed back into the pool. If it turns out that it's been too long since your last assignment, you may have to complete all or some of the required forms again. A UTemps counselor will get back to you with further information.
