On Campus Jobs

As I have mentioned before, I work phonathon at Dominican. Since I have a very busy school schedule, I do not have time for a second job. Like phonathon and every other work/ study job on campus, we are only paid once a month. When I used to work at Express, I was paid once every two weeks. It is extremely hard to stretch a pay check for one month. Why is all on campus jobs have to be like this? Couldn't we have our paychecks be once every two weeks?


  1. Wow. I had no idea that student workers only received pay checks once a month. That's got to be tough. They should pay you twice a month like any other job. On the bright side, it could be a good thing. Learning to stretch your paycheck could potentially help students learn to budget. Many people go crazy with credit cards or spending frivolously, learning to budget and stretch your earnings can prepare you for the future.

  2. The full time salary folks only get paid once a month too...on the 15th as well.

  3. Wow. That's shocking! I wonder, why? Mar, you should definitely look into this. It would be very interesting to find this out!
