Working within a Police Department pretty typical, responding to service and emergency calls. Assisting public, patients and staff with all types of requests. This is a good job for someone who need flexibility while attending school or retired.

Laboratory Technician (Current Employee), Houston, TX – August 20, 2014
Pros: good food
Cons: rude customers
This was a great place for me to start my work experience. I was just a teenager and it prepared me for future jobs and my career. I really enjoyed everything about it at the time. I got along very well with the management.
I work Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. Most of my day consist of meeting with the general contractors that are doing the work on my projects. We discuss what has been completed on the job, what they are working on now, what will be done over the next 2 weeks, updating scedules, and discuss RFI's and change orders if there are any. I make – more... sure that my projects are on schedule and under budget. I have learned a lot about the work that is done in a hospital and research lab environment. A lot different than in most other types of construction. My management and co-worker are an amazing group of people. Everyone enjoys what they do and helps each other out. The hardest part of my job is going into the hospital and seeing the patients and their families. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing what I have helped build that helps patients recover from cancer. – less
A typical day at work is busy with lots of cancer cases. I learned that cancer does not discriminate anyone. Management is awsome and the best co-worker I have had so far. The hardest part of the job is get it done right the first time around. The most enjoy part of the job is helping the Doctors diagnosed some one condition and following with the right – more... treatment. – less
Welcome Center Attendant (Current Employee), Houston, TX – July 21, 2014
Pros: pay is good, advancement is good in some fields
Cons: parking, reley on education more than experince and a lot comes out of pay check
Working at MD Anderson can have its good days and can have its bad days like any company... MD Anderson is very hard to get in most of the people I know that work here, knew someone who worked at MD Anderson in order to get hired. Once you are in you can move up in some fields but only if you have a Degree. MD Anderson is a company that is very big – more... on Education, they view education as a plus more then work experience. My only major complaint is the parking, its very expensive and depending on what building you working in you may have to walk a block or 2 Rain Hail or Snow does not matter. There is a lot that comes out of check Regular Taxes, Teacher Retirement, Parking , Pay flex(optional) Insurance (optional) – less

Life is so uncertain. I learned how to stay strong even she you see that you are loosing some one you love to death. There were days I couldn't eat anything after coming back from work.
I can't thank enough the institute for giving chance to volunteer in the different areas of the hospital. This was my lifetime experience which I will never ever be – more... able to forget. Helped me recover from the emotional pain after I lost of one my Unlces. He gave up his life to the battle against Cancer. – less
Room Service Wait Staff (Current Employee), Houston, TX – May 19, 2014
Benefits are good. It is hard to move around or advance. The job is easy. Somewhat monotonous. I've met lots of really nice people (both employees and patients). Most rewarding part is working with the patients. I wish the pay was a little better but its not bad.
