Step 4: Report to Work

Now you are ready to report to Sandia. You will spend your first day in orientation, which is required prior to starting work. The receipt of reporting instructions sent to you by Student Intern Programs is required prior to attending orientation which verifies that you have satisfied all contingencies stated in your offer letter.

Please be aware that if you are unable to provide original documentation providing evidence of your employment eligibility and U.S. citizenship 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 Sandia badge and turn in new hire forms.

3. Attend new employee orientation.

Once you have turned in your new hire forms and received your Sandia badge, you will attend orientation. For details and location, please reference your reporting instructions email. Maps and directions are provided for you under "First-day resources." During orientation, you will learn more about Sandia, our general operations, and available resources.
