Financial Aid Specialist II (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – September 11, 2016
I really enjoyed working at Lone Star College because of the business outlook it gave me. I learned how to set appointments, make spreadsheets, work with new and former students in financial aid, and manage a staff. I was like a part-time supervisor. When my supervisor was not at work, I was supposed to take control. That was the hardest part of the job, plus I worked at the same campus where I was attending classes. This job was also a great opportunity for me.
the business outlook
did not like working at the campus where i attended school
PT TECHNICIAN III (Current Employee) – Tomball, TX – March 23, 2016
Lone Star College is a great place to work. They are very flexible with their scheduling. A lot of room for moving up in the company. If you are looking for experience in the Technology field this is definitely the place for you. The pay doesn't go up as high as you would like. Most positions are only part time so there are no benefits.
AT Lab Asst. Lab Coordinator (Former Employee) – Conroe, TX – July 25, 2016
It all depends on your position. Working for the AT lab was excellent and it paid very well, but was susceptible to very low hours and was laid off after working several months. Make sure to lock your position in, or if offered another position, make sure it is guaranteed to you
Working here can be easy once you are trained. Tutoring schedules can become busy and sometimes it takes awhile to enter data if you work at the front desk, but nevertheless you are still able to study for your classes in between assisting students.
The Lone Star College System is an excellent start for individuals who are looking for a well rounded experience while pursing a lifetime goal.
Program Coordinator and Adjunct Faculty Member (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – April 19, 2016
Being a Program Coordinator in the Adult Education Program with Lone Star College has given me the opportunity to maximize the use of most of the skills, if not all of the skills, that I had obtained during my previous positions in the field of education,
When I was primarily a Basic English teacher for ELL students, I found it to be rather rewarding to say the very least. I was so thrilled to be part of the reason why a student got promoted or was able to obtain a better job. It just reinforced the philosophy that education is really the key to a better life.
This position has also given me an opportunity to experience first hand a variety of cultures and provided me many opportunities to expand my learning of a second language.(Spanish)
The work days are long, and the places we provide services to can be considered rather remote, but meeting the people we are helping provide free learning opportunities to makes all of that obsolete!
Fun workplace with competent and effective workers

Specialist IV, Retention (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – May 25, 2016
Once you start they are already helping to find ways for you to advance. Professional development is available and paid for as long as funds are available. The culture is awesome. Leadership is respectful and appreciative of all employee contributions.
Adjunct Professor of Government (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – June 2, 2016
All except the lack of full-time professorships and the compensation being what it is, Lone Star is very well ran. The student body is better, than other colleges, the bureaucracy is easier to deal with than other colleges also.

The part I enjoyed the most was to receive compliments of a good job being done.

Scribe (Former Employee) – Houston, Tx – November 12, 2015
I took notes for disabled students by sitting in their classes. As I took notes for many student I attended variety of subjects which gave me lots of knowledge on different subjects and improved my listening skills. The management were great they were very supportive and flexible. Since I worked for individual students I did not have any co-workers. To narrate right information for an unknown subjects. The most enjoyable part was by putting smiles on disabled students.

Field Operations Assistant (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – December 9, 2012
Not only a great place to go to school but to work as well. My job position was only part-time so there was no opportunity for advancement but job security was very high. I enjoyed working with all members of staff, not just my immediate co-workers but also all the locations of Lonestar College as my position allowed me to travel to different campus/locations for training and work. I learned how to be responsible for inventory of over 14 locations for the Adult Education program and creative thinking when it came to dealing with students and supplies.
lonestar college staff parking permit, great flexibility day/night hours, mileage reimbursement, many opportunites for professional training paid for, tuition reimbursement
part-time hours, not much opportunity for advancement, no pay raise
