Why work for UREC?

In addition to flexible scheduling and convenient on-campus work locations, UREC offers students the opportunity to work in a dynamic, fun, and rewarding environment where they will gain valuable training, leadership experience, and certification skills that will serve them well in future employment opportunities.

Requirements for Employment

To work on-campus, students must be enrolled at least part-time in a UA degree program during the academic year (fall and spring semesters). For undergraduates, that is a minimum of 6 credit hours. All of our positions require an excellent attitude and willingness to learn, the ability to obtain required certifications, and the availability to work a flexible schedule – to include some early mornings, evenings, weekends, and/or holiday hours as needed, approximately 10 hours per week.

All students selected for hire must complete USCIS Form I-9 for Employment Eligibility Verification. This form requires new employees to provide documentation to their employers to show their identity and authorization to work. All identification documents must be unexpired and presented in their original format – copies, photos, or scans cannot be accepted. Additional information on Acceptable Documents for Form I-9 can be found on the USCIS website.
