What is UVU Temps?
UVU Temps provides short-term employment opportunities for positions on-campus for events, seasonal, one-time project work, and to fill needed staffing shortages due to employee absences or turnover. Job types and schedules vary based on need. Check the open positions website at http://www.uvu.jobs/ .

UVU Temps that meet the specified job qualifications will be assigned to a department as needed. Job assignments are not guaranteed on a continuous basis.
Duration of job assignments can range in length from half a day to a week, a month, or several months, but are limited to no more than 1500 accumulated hours per year. If you are identified as a match for an available temporary assignment, you will be contacted directly. However, there is no guarantee of placement in a temporary position. Supervisors may also request to interview directly for some positions from the temp pool. Payment for hours worked will be processed along with the standard UVU payroll cycle with pay dates on the 1st and 16th of each month.
