  • Work together with other staff and equitably share the workload.
  • Be sure the sign-in desk is staffed at all times: no exceptions. Additional Lab Assistants should “keep an eye” on the desk and be prepared to shift responsibilities as necessary.
  • Walk around. Make your presence known; volunteer to help users if they seem confused or frustrated. Proactive help takes precedence over homework, surfing the internet, chatting, etc.
  • Keep the labs presentable and functional for users. Check computer conditions throughout the day: notice and report problems to supervisor. After a class dismisses, check the Music Technology Classroom computers, straighten up the room, etc.
  • Consistently work the same hours every week. Be prepared to work 10-15 hours per week.
  • Call or email supervisor when time off is needed: 24-hour notice minimum. Call in when you expect to be late for a shift. Respond yes or no to email when asked to substitute.

  • Promptly follow supervisor’s directions. Complete tasks immediately unless agreed-upon reasons for delay have been discussed.

  • The workload is more than fair for the pay! Many times, students are required to do nothing but be ready to respond immediately when action is needed.
  • Never consume food in the Lab, and only consume drinks at the front table. Set a good example for users, and help keep pests away.
  • Keep conversations quiet. The Lab is not a library, but it’s not a coffeehouse, either!
  • We expect staff to handle unknowns and to fill in gaps in their knowledge. If you don’t know an answer, ask another employee for help, and then stand by to observe and learn. It’s MUCH better to ask question than to stay in the dark.
