The payroll system at the University of Houston is as effective at processing paperwork as the Denver Nuggets are at winning NBA championships. It is a very slow process and so this is the page that will tell you exactly how to fill out the rest of this packet to make the process go as smoothly as possible. This will help us expedite the process (hopefully). It takes 30 days to process this paperwork, so we hope to get a jump on it. If you are selected and work the event, you should receive a paycheck by April 1, 2016.

Hotel / Accomodations

Due to the Houston Rodeo, we were unable to work out confirmed room blocks. Hotels were not willing to allow room blocks for large groups if we could only confirm one night. If you have never attended the Houston Rodeo, this is a major month long event for the city of Houston with 10’s of 1,000’s of people attending on a weekly basis. Below are a number of hotels in the Pearland area. Pearland is south of UH on 288S or I-45S. Most of these are off of 288S.
