Congratulations on your appointment and welcome to the Guttman Community!

Starting a new job is an exciting new beginning! But it can also feel overwhelming with so much information to take in and remember. The general information below is intended to make that transition easier by helping you know what to expect during your onboarding process as you settle into your new role.

On Your First Day

A member of your team/department will meet with you in the Atrium and bring you to your working space. You will then visit the IT Office (room 304) for an IT Orientation. There, you will learn how to access your email account, log into your computer, and use printers/copiers/scanners. You will also receive your Employee ID Card during your IT Orientation. Generally, your ID card gives you access to your working space and classrooms. Additional access may be granted depending on your role at the College.


Depending on your position, you may accrue sick days, annual leave, and earn Unscheduled Holidays. You may view a breakdown of the Time and Leave Benefits Summary for your position on the Time and Leave Forms page. An HR staff member will be in touch with you soon after your start date to provide guidance and send information on the electronic submission of your bi-weekly timesheet, if applicable. More information will be provided during your onboarding.


Employees are paid on a bi-weekly basis. You may view Payroll Calendars and pay dates online. After you receive your first paycheck, it is recommended that you schedule a meeting with HR to review your paystub. If you elect to enroll in Direct Deposit, your paychecks will be deposited into your selected bank account. However, the first paycheck is usually a paper check. If so, HR will contact you confirming payment, as well as where to pick up your paycheck and subsequent pay stubs from. More information will be provided during your onboarding.


Our Assistant Director for Employee Services will schedule a meeting with you during your first week to review your completed benefits forms & related benefits documents, if applicable. Please make every effort to submit all required forms by the end of your first week of employment to ensure prompt processing of benefits, but no later than the 30th day of employment. A Benefits Orientation will also be scheduled to help you make an informed decision regarding the various benefits offerings available to you.
