Getting Started

Your department and Human Resource Services will help you obtain all the resources necessary to hit the ground running, including:

  • Process the hiring paperwork that will create your account in the Human Resource Services (HRS) system.
    • This generates your employee identification number (often called a 790 number) and
    • defines your eligibility for benefits.
  • Provide information on a number of practical matters, such as how to:
    • obtain an e-mail account and a umontana e-mail alias
    • access office space and get keys
    • set up office equipment such as computers and phones
    • contact your IT support staff
    • create index codes (teaching/research-related accounts, if applicable)
    • obtain a Procard (credit card for business expenses, if applicable)
