ASUCLA offers UCLA students a variety of opportunities for skills development through meaningful job experiences and regular performance feedback. Regular status student employees who are employed at the end of the academic year receive a written review of performance on the job.

Timing of Reviews

Regular status student employees receive their performance reviews just prior to the beginning of Spring quarter if they are currently employed at that time.

Newly hired and rehired regular status student employees receive their first performance reviews on April 1st if hired on or before February 1st of the same year. If hired after February 1st of that year, their first performance review will be April 1st the following year.

Thereafter for continuing regular status student employees, reviews are received annually, effective April 1st.

Appraisal Areas

The review addresses job-related strengths and/or areas for improvement in the following areas:

  • Service
  • Job Competencies
  • Attendance
  • Productivity
  • Cooperation
  • Responsiveness
  • Follows Direction
  • Policies/Procedures
  • Supervisory Skills

Appraisal Ratings

Supervisors and managers rate employee performance in each of the above categories as follows with the highest number of ratings constituting the overall performance rating:

Outstanding Continuing status eligible.
Merit increase eligible if employed at least 90 days.
Very Good Continuing status eligible.
Merit increase eligible if employed at least 90 days.
Good Continuing status eligible.
Merit increase eligible if employed at least 90 days.
Needs Improvement Employment may be discontinued.
Unsatisfactory Employment may be discontinued.

Continuing Status

Regular status student employees who receive a summary rating of “Good” or above may be eligible to continue employment with ASUCLA. Employees and their supervisors or managers will discuss whether or not they’ll be working during the summer, or returning next Fall quarter. Because our operations are less busy in summer, we may not be able to provide summer jobs for all students who are interested.

Most departments establish dates by which student employees must provide their availability if they are returning to work in the Fall. If student employees do not respond to their departments by the requested date, they may lose their continuing employment status. Employment in the Fall is also contingent upon the compatibility of student employees’ availability with the department’s staffing needs.

If the review has a summary rating of “Needs Improvement” employment could discontinue.
If the review has a summary rating of “Unsatisfactory”, employment could discontinue.

Merit Increase Eligibility

Consideration for merit increase may be granted when a regular status student employee receives a summary rating of “Good” or above.
