Temporary Employment Service
The Temporary Employment Service (TES), operated by Carnegie Mellon’s Human Resources, is dedicated to providing qualified temporary office support staff quickly. TES understands your needs and retains a pool of qualified clerical, secretarial, and administrative staff who are available for full- or part-time, short- or long-term assignments at the university.
TES employees are eligible for university benefits based on their hours and length of employment, as with other full- and part-time employees of the university. All employees are required to work the minimum hours necessary to maintain benefit-eligibility status. Changes to hours or gaps in employment may result in an interruption of university benefits or a change to the benefit eligibility status.
If you have questions about TES, please contact Pat Schaller, Manager of TES, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 412-268-7478.

Hiring Manager Information
When your temporary employee arrives:
- Provide a designated work space and computer.
- Orient the employee around the office, and introduce them to others with whom they will be working.
- Establish any alternate work schedules that may be necessary. TES employees are aware of the university's normal university business hours, and the possibility that different hours may be required. However, you should inform them of the specific schedule they should keep, including break periods. Note that TES employees are entitled to overtime pay for hours worked in excess of 40 per week, under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
