Handshake (Job Posting Service)

Handshake, is the official online recruiting center of Career Services.

Paychecks and Distribution

Payday is every other Thursday. NYS employees are paid on a two-week lag basis: a two-week delay between the time the work is performed and when the salary for that work is received. New employees must wait approximately four weeks to receive their first paycheck.

Paychecks are distributed by the Office of the State Comptroller. They will be mailed directly to the address provided to HR. If you do not wish to have your check mailed you can sign up for direct deposit. The form can be found below or in the Human Resources Office.
