Onboarding, PDC Student Employment

Onboarding for PD&C student employees consists of a virtual group orientation and self-paced set of learning modules. Both segments need to be completed in order to start your first shift in your 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. The Student Employee Manual and your orientation link will be sent via email at least 24 hours in advance. Orientation is facilitated by the Central Hiring team.

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.
