How Your Rate of Pay is Determined
FWS Positions vary in degrees of responsibility
and expertise required. A committee comprised of financial
aid staff members reviews all job descriptions at the time
of submission. The committee then evaluates them using set
criteria for grade assignment. All positions are classified
in one of several grades.
Each position is classified based upon the
level of skill, the amount of responsibility and previous
experience or training required to perform the job. The specific
rate within a grade is based upon the qualifications of the
student and the recommendation of the supervisor. First time
employees are not recommended for consideration for the top
pay rate of the grade without written justification. There
are no exceptions.
