* Notes regarding payment: Standard work-study jobs start at $9.00 an hour for first-year work-study students. The wage is increased by $.50 every year the student is employed under the work-study program at Otis. Some positions have a fixed hourly rate and will not give an annual increase.  The rate is calculated according to years worked under the work-study program, not years spent as a student at Otis. However, some positions require more skill and experience, and supervisors may specify a higher rate of pay for qualifying positions. Your supervisor must complete a new job description if he/she plans on increasing your pay rate.
