Student projectionist employment FAQ's
How much is the pay?
Operators are paid $15/hour. Training is paid at a rate of $14/hour (minimum wage). The weekend rate is $22.50/hour.
How does an operator get work?
We receive assignment requests from staff and faculty on campus. The assignments are then made available to the operators we've hired.
When is the best time to apply?
The best time to apply is before the semester you would like to start working. We prefer to do our hiring and training the last few weeks before the start of a semester. Because of annual student turnover and the cycle of requests we receive, most of our hiring takes place before the fall semester, during July and August.
What kind of experience do I need? Do you provide training?
Previous experience is an asset. Specific training is provided.
