A Great Place to Teach
Professional Tutor II (Current Employee), Conroe, TXJuly 31, 2015
Pros: great students, plenty of places to tutor, good environment, adequate teaching materials
Cons: HR doesn't seem to care about paying what the employees are due to them, depending on their level of ability and degree qualifications.
During a day at work, I see at least three students who come in for help with something they are writing, from resumes to research papers. I learned how to explain and teach better in this job, how to communicate to students effectively, and be a better teacher in general. My coworkers come from all walks of life and have their own, unique talents to contribute to the tutoring center. The most enjoyable part of the job is having students whom I had helped come back to say they got good marks on their paper or they got into the college they were writing an entrance essay for.

Productive and a fun work place
Liberian (Current Employee), Houston, TXJuly 18, 2015
Working at Lone Star College gives me the opportunity to work and go to class. It gives me the advantage to interact with all the students with there needs and to develop communication skills. As the days pass by I always learn something new. The people who i work with are very outgoing. They are defiantly the kind of people you would want help from. Very smart too. The best part of the day is interacting with the students that go there and just helping them out with whatever they need assistances with.

Temporary customer service agent (Former Employee), Montgomery, TXMay 23, 2015
It was a fun job. It was my first job in retail and I loved it. The job didn't last long due to the season and I was a temporary but every season the manager would call me back to see if I wanted to do another run. I moved since then so I had to decline however.

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work
Lab Assistant (Former Employee), Houston, TXMarch 4, 2015
A typical day would include cleaning and organizing the preparation rooms, preparing solutions and equipment for the scheduled labs for the respective classes, and keeping an inventory in order to make sure we didn't run out of anything. I learned how to safely handle and prepare acid and base solutions from their concentrated forms, and learned to recognize tools and equipment by their appropriate names.
My co-workers were awesome! We worked as a team to systematically get every little job done, down to the last detail. There were a few weeks where we were ahead with our work, that we were able to test out new lab projects for our supervisor.
Sometimes the hardest part of the job was when one was working on an assignment that took a long time to complete, but at the same time it was the most enjoyable because you know how much time and effort it took to create a masterpiece.

Pros: you get free coffee and get to try all the new products we bring in.
