Self-Service Temporary Hiring

Departments also can choose to manage the temporary employee hiring process independently through the HR/Payroll System, which is part of the University's EBS or Enterprise Business Systems. To process a temporary employee hire through the EBS HR/Payroll system, an individual with an appropriate role in the unit, such as Unit Administrator, would log into EBS at the EBS Login Portal and initiate the hire.

Our self-service option is a good choice for units that want to handle their own candidate selection, hiring process, time entry and payroll processing for their temporary employee(s). If you have questions related to hiring a temporary employee through the EBS HR/Payroll System, contact:

Melissa Kacos

Each individual department on MSU's campus hires temporary employees if needed. If you are interested in working for a particular department on campus, please contact them directly to see if they have any positions available. You can search MSU's main website, to get contact information for specific departments.
