Frequently Asked Questions
How can I apply for jobs?
Go to Workday and search “Jobs and Career Hub”, then select “Student Employment” and click on NU Find Student Jobs.
Why is my application automatically rejected?
Students may be rejected from a job if they are not qualified, or if another candidate was more suitable for the position. Hiring managers make the final hiring decision.
If you believe your applications are being rejected in error, please contact us.
When can new students apply for jobs?
Most incoming students will gain access to Workday 20 days prior to the start of their program. If you still do not have access to Workday by then, please contact our office.
How can I view my paystubs?
How can I update my withholdings/tax elections?
The W-4 is defaulted to 0 withholdings for student employees at Northeastern, but you can make changes if you wish. Go to Workday and search “Withholding Elections” in the search bar. Select the ‘Update’ button to be brought to the menu where you can change the number of withholdings or exempt yourself from income tax (if you think the exemption is applicable).
Why am I unable to submit my timesheet?
Students are paid with bi-weekly pay schedule. Every pay week, the timesheet will be temporarily locked for processing payroll. If you have trouble entering time, please try again on Friday. Make sure you enter your hours by 10AM Sunday morning every week so you can get paid on time.
