Getting Started

 

The onboarding process has three steps.  The first step happens here, online.  Onboarding Station No. 1 will assist you with the employment forms that are required to get you started in your new job.  Some of the forms can be completed online and submitted via email; others must be printed and signed and brought with you on your first day of work.  Each form has directions on how to complete it.  At Onboarding Station No. 2, you’ll be advised about CUNY HR policies and required employee training.  Finally, at Onboarding Station No. 3 you’ll be able to review information about your benefits options.

The next step of the onboarding process takes place on your first day of work.  On that day, you’ll report to Central Office Human Resources, located at 205 East 42nd Street (between 2nd and 3rd Avenues), on the 10th Floor.  You’ll meet with a member of the Central Office Human Resources staff for a brief orientation session, and have your picture taken for your CUNY ID card.  Note:  you will need to bring the requisite forms of identification in order to be processed.

Finally, you’ll be invited to attend a Benefits Orientation session within two weeks of your start date.  At that time, you will receive detailed information about your benefits package and have your questions answered.

Now let’s get started!
