WELCOME to FACILITIES Human Resources!

In a decentralized human resources setting, the Facilities Human Resources team serves as the front line HR representatives for the University. We are the liaison to the USC Division of Human Resources and constantly interact with personnel to provide the services our staff would receive from Divisional HR, but at the local level. Our responsibilities mirror those of USC's Division of Human Resources regarding information systems, recruitment, benefits and salary administration, employee relations and professional development.

The USC Department of Facilities is a great place to work as evidenced by our retention statistics. At least 15 percent of our employees have worked for us more than 20 years and another 21 percent have worked more than 10 years.

Below are some of the reasons people want to work for us:

  • 30 days of paid annual and sick leave
  • 12 paid holidays
  • Health, dental, and life insurances
  • Medical provider networks for reduced costs
  • Retirement programs
  • Deferred compensation programs
  • Professional development opportunities
  • Cross functional and cross trained teams
  • Convenient location and parking
  • The USC environment
  • One tuition paid class per semester after working for six months in a FTE position
  • Flexible work schedules
  • Predominate Mon to Fri work schedule for Maintenance employees: 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • Tools and vehicles provided
  • Uniforms and safety shoes supplied

We recognize outstanding employees through our "Employee of the Year" and "Employee of the Quarter" programs. We hold quarterly meetings with all employees to share information and allow for questions. We produce an employee newsletter and we hold monthly Employee Suggestion Program meetings to discuss employee suggestions and ideas.

Our Employee Activity Committee works behind the scenes to provide opportunities for team building, social interaction, and recreational activities throughout the year. The events include picnics, softball games and other forms of community building activities throughout our department.

You will find a list of responsibilities by HR employees under the organizational structure.

I hope you will visit our site often to obtain additional information regarding our services as our web site grows. If you need more information please contact us at 803-777-5500.

 About & Help

Content Manager


View the published version of the page. This view is available when in "PREVIEW" and "EDIT" modes.

NOTE – In general, you may switch from one mode to any other mode.


View page changes prior to publication. This view is available when in "DEPLOYED" and "EDIT" modes.


Prepare the page for publication. "Checks out" the page for changes to the content and closes it to changes by other users.

The "EDIT" mode is disabled when a changed page is submitted for approval (Request Approval); awaiting deployment (Deploy); after approval (Approve); or if checked out (Edit) for making changes by someone else.

Important note about EDITing pages:
If page is exited or reloaded without saving changes the changes will be lost.

To follow links (eg. for testing them) FROM THE PAGE –OPEN THEM IN ANOTHER WINDOW (TAB) (to do that hold the <Ctrl> key when clicking on the link).

To be safe and to prevent the unintentional loss of your work, always preserve a back-up copy in a separate file (copy/paste the source code).

For additional information about using the "EDIT" features:

Check In

When you have completed your edits of the page "CHECK it IN". Checking a page in frees the pages for others (with the correct permissions) to work with the page. If changes are made and NOT saved, checking in will save them. Checking in returns you to preview mode (Preview).

Load Deployed

This allows to load to the editor (Edit) what is exposed to the site visitors. Clearly it overrides the content of the editor (warning is displayed). It brings you to the editor (Edit) if you were not there already. Respectively it attempts to check out the page to you (which may not be possible if someone is having it checked out already).

Request Approval

When your changes are complete, you should change the status of the page to "REQUEST APPROVAL". Changing the page to this status will close the page to additional edits until after the page is deployed by the Administrator or the changes are rejected.


"APPROVE" allows deployment of the page by the Administrator. Please note that, while a page is awaiting approval and deployment, the page is disabled for additional edits.


When changes to a page are "REJECTED", the page is no longer locked for additional edits or other actions.


DEPLOYING a page publishes the page to the website. It also releases the edit lock on the page and allows additional changes to the page.


"ROLLING BACK" by the Administrator will restore the published page to a prior version. Please note, however that the rolled back content is not deleted from the database.


The "INFORMATION" option provides data about the content of the page being viewed. This includes data such as the saved/approved/deployed dates and user for each status.
