Step 4: Report to Work

Now you are ready to report to Sandia. You will spend your first morning in an orientation meeting, which is required prior to starting work. Please do not plan to report to work until you have received official reporting instructions in your step 3 and 4 email from Student Intern Programs because you will not be allowed to sign in until you have satisfied all of the contingencies stated in your offer letter.

Please be aware that if you are unable to provide original documentation providing evidence of your employment eligibility within three days of signing in, your employment with Sandia may be subject to termination.

1. Bring the required items for badging and orientation.

See Step 3: Prepare to Start for a list of documents to bring.

2. Obtain your badge.

Report to the Sandia Visitor Badge Office located at 7011 East Avenue in Livermore, which can only be accessed via Sandia’s Greenville Road Main Entrance, by 7:15 a.m. in order to allow sufficient time to obtain your badge and report to the orientation by 8:00 a.m.

Sandia’s Visitor Badge Office is not accessible via public transportation. Please plan to take a car service, a taxi, or make other arrangements for transportation. If you plan to travel to the badge office by bike, download a map that shows our walking/bike paths (PDF, 222 kB).

After completing the badging process, security personnel will instruct you on how to get to new employee orientation located in Building 926.

3. Attend the new employee orientation.

On the morning of your first day, you will be attending new employee orientation. At this meeting, we will collect your new-hire paperwork; verify your eligibility of employment; and cover required training topics. Following the orientation, you will be met by your mentor.
