Great Pay - $9.25/hr

All callers are eligible for a pay raise every semester based on performance and attendance. Also, callers are able to earn extra hours of pay nightly as a reward for achieving an established goal.

On top of that, student supervisors regularly distribute incentives to callers who show outstanding performance, enthusiasm and commitment to the program. These incentives include gift cards to local restaurants and attractions.

If you are a student looking for work study, MSU Greenline is the place for you.

Fun Environment

We are a student-run program. We work hard to make this an enjoyable place to work.

We do not have a dress code. As long as it's appropriate and not offensive to others you can wear whatever you'd like.

We play games to help you bond with your peers and make your work atmosphere 100% enjoyable.

The staff at MSU Greenline is unique and diverse, which helps us cater to your personal needs.

There are many opportunities throughout the semester to dress up for different theme shifts, play games, eat free food or talk to recruiters that come in to speak to the room.


Are you scheduled to work tonight but need more time to finish up a paper that is due tomorrow morning? At MSU Greenline, it's not a problem.

New hires are authorized the following absences to help balance the expected and unexpected things that come up in our lives:

  • Review Session and Doctor's Notes (unlimited): Can't make it into your assigned shift because you are sick or have an exam/review session? Have your professor sign off that you attended or bring in a note from your doctor to be cleared for the shift.
  • Make-up (2): If you're busy tonight but you free a different night, call in and let us know you're going to skip your shift tonight and make it up at another date.
  • Subs (unlimited): If you need the night off and you found someone to sub for you, then you're good to go.

Plus, if you come in and Thank you call on your off-night you'll have an opportunity to earn more excused.

One perk of our flexible scheduling is that we allow you to control how much you receive on your paychecks. If you have time on your off-night, you are welcome to come in and work for a shift that you are not assigned to work. This is not a requirement, but it is a great way to earn some extra cash, and help to improve your raise for the next semester.


Every employee is guaranteed to be scheduled for a minimum of 11 hours a week, but never more than 20 hours. We know that students apply for jobs because they need extra money, but with classes to worry about at the same time, we don't want you to be overworked.

As a caller you will be assigned to work either Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:15-9:30 PM or Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:15-9:30 PM, based on what fits with your schedule. In addition to the weekday shifts, weekend shifts are assigned every other weekend, and include Fridays from 5:00-8:00 PM and Sundays from 1:00-8:00 PM.

Opportunity for Advancement

Everyone at Greenline started off as a student caller. We only promote from within, so each semester you will have an opportunity to apply for a supervisor or manager position.

The skills you gain as a caller, supervisor or manager in this organization will be unmatched resume builders. You will gain valuable communication and teamwork skills as a caller. As a supervisor you will learn how to effectively manage your own team of callers. Managers are in charge of specific departments such as HR, Production, Business, or Promotions and are responsible for carrying out the duties assigned to their department.
