Student Pay Scale

The following is a chart of the student pay scale for the academic year and summer. The Student Employment Office grades student positions based on the original position description submitted by a supervisor.

So that Bates is in compliance with the new State of Maine minimum wage law, all student wages currently less than $9.00 per hour will be increased to that level on January 1, 2017.

Grade Academic Year Rate Summer  Rate Description of Duties
A $9.00 $9.00 Grade A positions include standard, routine duties which require minimal prior training or experience.
B $9.00 $9.00 Students working in Grade B positions require prior knowledge, skill, or training. Grade B positions may be physically demanding and the work may be performed under difficult conditions.
C $9.00 $9.00 Grade C positions also require prior knowledge, skill, or training. Grade C positions may include constant physical activity. Students in Grade C positions take on a heavy workload, perform work with little or no supervision, and often have supervisory responsibilities over other students.
