What We Want from Our Employees
- Help lab patrons solve computer and software problems. Exhibit positive attitude, enthusiasm, and desire for helping people (coworkers, lab users, supervisor, etc.). Show positive attitude toward all users, including individuals one might consider difficult.
- All Lab Attendants work together and equitably share workload helping lab patrons, answer the phone or walk-in questions. Staff typically occupies the front desk, unless they are busy helping patrons or working on other job tasks.
- Walk around the computer lab and be prepared to ask patrons if they appear to need help. Make your presence known by wearing your lab ID name tag.
- Set a good example and only have food or drinks in the appropriate containers. Ask patrons to place messy food or non-approved drinks on designated table in each lab.
- Check the condition of computers. All staff check the status of computers/printers/paper tray/supplies in labs & computer classrooms daily and in-between classes when possible. Check all monitors for login screen when patrons leave ensuring they logged out after their session. Be sure to straighten chairs and equipment, scan for lost personal items left behind, and pickup extraneous papers. In other words, make classrooms and labs look presentable and usable for the next group of patrons or students.
- Consistently work the same 2 to 15 hours per week -- shifts range from 7:30 AM to as late as 6:00 PM.
- Email your supervisor when time off is needed, 24- hour notice minimum, preferably more. Allow sufficient time for substitutes to plan. Call in when you expect to be late for shift.
- Attend monthly staff meetings to further enhance technology and customer service skills.
