Onboarding, PDC Student Employment

Onboarding for PD&C student employees consists of a group orientation (currently held virtually) and a self-paced set of learning modules. Both segments are to be completed prior to your first shift in your new work location.

All onboarding and required training must be completed in paid status. Be sure to follow the instructions provided to track and enter your time appropriately.

Group Orientation

This 45-60 minute session will cover important employment policies and procedures as well as provide you an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have. Take a few minutes to review the Student Employee Manual before your session. Orientation is facilitated by student leaders on the Central Hiring team.

If there are no open orientations that match your availability within the next two weeks, please contact the Central Hiring team at Dining-pdchiring@purdue.edu. Please provide three dates/times you are available

Learning Modules

The self-paced new employee learning modules are housed in BrightSpace and include required training on several safety topics. There are five modules that generally take a total of 2 hours to complete. You are not required to complete all modules in one sitting, you can save your progress and return at a later time.

These are mandatory and module quizzes require 100% to pass. You will have several attempt to earn 100%, be sure to do so before moving on.

BrightSpace can be accessed from the Purdue homepage or by clicking here. You will be asked to login with your BoilerKey.

Troubleshooting: If you do not see the course in your BrightSpace, email the Central Hiring team at Dining-pdchiring@purdue.edu. Email Employee Success at Dining-employeesuccess@purdue.edu with questions or problems with the learning module content. Contact ITaP for BrightSpace access issues.
