Because working for Temporary Staffing Services can lead to meaningful and rewarding employment at the university. In some cases, it could even result in a regular position (and that means a higher level of job security and benefits). In fact, a recent poll of Campus New Employee Orientation attendees found that approximately 30% of the new hires started out as temporary employees.

Am I eligible for benefits as temporary employee?
Temporary employees are not eligible for fringe benefits except for travel accident insurance.
Non-exempt (hourly) temporary employees may contribute to a 403(b) Supplemental Retirement Account (SRA) with TIAA-CREF or Fidelity at any time. You contribute a fixed dollar amount with each paycheck; there is no university matching contribution. Contributions and earnings are tax-deferred, meaning you do not pay state or federal taxes until you take a distribution from the account.
Do you hire students?
Yes, especially during summer months, but you may want to contact the Student Employment Office at (734) 763-4128 for additional student employment opportunities.
