Instructor (Former Employee) – Port Arthur, TX – November 18, 2017
Lamar University at Port Arthur Texas was an academic oriented institution whose primary interest was the students who were attending the college. The work environment was excellent, the management structure was what one would expect in a college structure and the benefits were supported by the state of Texas. All in all, this was a truly great place to work.
Freedom to develope and integrate meaning programs for the students in the class
The hieracrchy of persons at the university was not the same as one would expect in private indstry.

Interesting environment interacting with students, faculty, staff and administration. Lots of scenic places to take breaks and lunch. One of my favorite aspects of working there is the opportunity to meet friendly people and if you take walks during lunch and breaks there are almost unlimited routes you can take just walking around campus. It truly is like working for a small community.
The biggest challenge is particularly at the beginning of the Fall semester that is the busiest time for everyone at the university regardless of position. In my role after the first week or two of the semester that begins to level off and you settle into a steady flow.
Overall, i have learned how to create fun activities and network that will soon help me in the near future. I loved meeting and assisting new people. The management was very strict yet accommodating to all of us college students. My favorite part about this job, was meeting people who will continue to be there for me as well as everyone else. Most importantly, I had an amazing time. Putting on programs and just assisting other students in any way possible made my time worth while.

Lamar staff is very helpful and patient. Made me feel at ease. Helped me to understand what I was to expect and how to navigate the online courses. I truly appreciate their kindness. It felt genuine, not like they were just doing their job.

depends on the department where one works. overall as the university- nice school; athletics department- needs new management/leadership. location- not the best to attract people to relocate; overall compensation - on the lower side, but cost of living is cheap.
great benefits- free healthcare! also good retirement assistance.
Exciting Opportunity to work in mixed culture help students and staff

Assisted Faculty, staff and students with password reset, email setup and wireless on personal devices.Troubleshooting lab PC’s based on university documentation, created tickets and escalate to technical support for resolution. Maintain, track tickets and creates reports of system utilization for management Performed maintenance on printers and computers and cleared print queues
I have learned how to work in a mixed culture, how to provide good customer relation, management was so caring about our education and valuable times, we were doing our maximum to provide the best service i can do. My hardest part was how to manage tough time with multitasking during exam times, when 3 to 4 printers not working. and the best part is we will split the job in between and resolve it as a team effort.
Online schedule management, allowed to do assignment when there is no rush
