I enjoy working at Houston Baptist University. Everyone knows one another, and you are greeted by name by people from across the university. I teach courses on a contractual, as needed basis. The pay is comparable to what other universities pay adjunct faculty.
Director of Athletic Training/Assistant Professor (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – August 8, 2017
There was a great relationship between coworkers. Great work environment. Good balance between work and personal life. Management was excellent. I enjoyed being able to use all of my rehabilitation skills and working with a variety of physicians and allied health professionals.
All in all it is a very quiet peaceful workplace. Atmosphere is good when weather conditions are good, rainy days a little better not much to do just wait until it passes or finish up small task. Summers are productive a lot of camps come thru so it's never slow paced always busy.
My first job as a science teacher was very innovative, researching and carrying out laboratory experiments. Students were involved very well and at the long run knowledge was impacted on them. my second and main job as a food science and Technology lecturer was veryawesome. I started as a graduate assistant then went for my MSc in Food Processing and Preservation. My research thesis for both BSc and MSc were interesting and demanding and thus harnessed the difficulties thereof. My 3rd job at Bronx Community College as a Chemistry Prof. helped me identify with my fellow scientists and enabled me carry out researches with them for 3-4years. Then going to graduate school at Houston Baptist Universityenabled me get info. about management in general. What to do to make work environment safe and condusive. And I was able to carry out diverse types of analysis requred in my field for graduation being Science and Math. I am through with the cerification Classes .
My experience Working at Houston Baptist University was an enjoyable one. the management was great and never gave their employees a hard time. We knew what was expected of us and got our work done in a timely fashion. My co-workers and I got a long very well, seeming that we all went to the same school. which was very small. I would say the hardest part of the job was trying not to goof around when working with your friends. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to meet knew people.
They worked us non-stop and it was a very tiring job, but they paid for our room and board so that was definitely worth it. It was hard to find the desire to work simply because you never saw a paycheck. It went straight into your account and payed for your school.
Telemarketer (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 17, 2016
Working for the University was an experience I feel was very positive. My intention for working here was for the benefit of gaining customer service skills for the future, and I was able to do just that. Work included the use of wireless communication software in combination with data processing, so being technologically savvy helped tremendously. The goal of the job was to reach the universities alumni and update their system information or ask if they'd like to donate to the universities future endeavors. This was done alongside a team of six, including myself. The atmosphere was very calm, and of intense focus as we rarely stopped working to chat, although when we did it was very fun and laughter was welcome. Management was excellent. How well ones day went at work often came down to those you communicated with, while phone calls were made back to back every hour of the day. The hardest part of my time here was speaking to those who were less than happy about their experience at the university and learning why, while the most enjoyable part was speaking to those who did enjoy their time. Every once in a while I would also speak to very successful men and women and gain advice, and that I loved. Overall, working here was excellent.
The Department I worked under was the Student Advancement Team
The ability to learn from the various people one spoke to.

Associate Professor of Business (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 22, 2015
Adjunct professors are hired by schools on a contractual, part-time basis as opposed to the traditional university model of full-time employment. They do not get employment benefits, including health insurance or retirement plans. Adjuncts are often hired to teach a specific course that regular faculty may not have expertise in.
Houston Baptist University Student Worker (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – December 2, 2014
A typical day at work consists of answering phone calls and assisting the dean. The environment is very relaxing and easy-going. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to interact with students and staff.
Very good work environment but very challenging pace. Growth in computer knowledge, including hardware and software, is exponential. Customers are sometimes difficult to deal with, but this is the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you have a team of coworkers willing to help, and friendships are made in this way.
