Winter 2011 Schedule Posted

The Winter 2011 schedule is now posted on the internal website.  You can view the schedule under the “Schedule” tab, just make sure to choose your name from the drop down menu to make it easier to see when you have been scheduled.


Do not put any  hours up for sub after the first week of the semester. This makes it much harder to swap shifts later on. There will be an opportunity to meet after semester orientation meeting on Thursday 1/6 to trade, give up, or pick up shifts for the remainder of the semester.


The schedule is shortened for the first Monday, January 3rd, because it’s still semester break. The normal Monday schedule starts the following Monday 1/10.


Get in touch with me with any questions or concerns about your schedule.

Weekly Email

Here’s the weekly email! Enjoy.


From Phil:

Availability: The final day to submit changes to your availability for Winter 2011 is Friday 12/17/2010. If you submit changes after this date you will be responsible for finding someone to permanently cover any shifts that you can’t work. If you do need to make changes after Friday 12/17 notify me immediately by email at that time.


40 hrs/wk: Resident students can work 40 hours per week beginning the first reading day, Friday 12/10, but the website will still only let you pick up 20 hours. Please email me with the date, time, and location of any shift that you would like to pick up but can’t because you’re already at 20 hours, and I will add it for you.


Dress Code: We know that the end of the semester can be stressful, so to help you out we’ve received permission for all labs employees to wear nice looking jeans during reading days, finals week, and over Christmas break (12/10-12/31). This is the only aspect of the dress code that will be different. All other aspects of the dress code will be unchanged. Jeans with holes, frays, or loud colors are not acceptable. We still need to be clean and professional for our patrons. Again this change is only effective 12/10-12/31 2010. Beginning 1/3/2011 its business (causal) as usual.


Kronos: Please take time this week to review your Kronos report for the semester (under Schedule tab -> Kronos) and make sure that everything is accurate. This information will be used to assess your punctuality in your performance review, so it’s in your best interest to make sure everything is correct!


From Spencer:

Open Access Computer Lab Dessert Potluck Christmas Party – The Christmas Party will be Thursday December 9th from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM in room 3252 WSC.  We will have a poetry contest, games, and eat ourselves fat.  Hope to see all who can make it there.


Evaluations – All evaluations are due at 11:59 PM Dec. 10th.  Please be sure to finish them by this date if you value your Christmas.

Christmas party


From the OC’s:

Lab Assistants do have administrator rights to install programs. If anyone does not have administrative rights please let us know.


In the SWKT we have ‘Class in Session’ signs. We need you to be on top of putting those signs up. Every hour please check to see which classrooms need signs put up or taken down. This will benefit our patrons greatly, so they know which rooms are available to be used.


Thanks and have a great week! Have fun during your last few days of classes!

Christmas Break Hours available today at 6PM

This is a reminder that the first five hour increment of Christmas break hours will become available at 6 PM today.


Please remember these mandatory procedures as you pick up hours:



Leave single open hours at the beginning or end of a shift.

Leave single hours in between a shift that you pick up and someone else’s shift.

Pick up every other hour so that you can hold a block of hours for yourself.

                Hold shifts for other employees.



Be considerate of your fellow employees and use common sense as you pick up hours.


Again, these procedures are mandatory, and failure to comply will disqualify you from working over the Christmas break.


If you have questions feel free to contact me.
