A wonderful and diverse place of employment. I had the opportunity to interact with many types of people and nationalities.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Starkville, MS – June 21, 2012
I learned many things during my tenure at Mississippi State University. I learned the system of operating and running an academic office, how to help students exceed in their academics by assisting in class scheduling, assist faculty and staff in academic testing and evaluations, ordering and stocking supplies for an academic department. I was the 'face' of both the Psychology and Chemistry departments at MSU, I routed all phone calls, appointments, vendors, ect to their desired destinations.. I was a liason between faculty/staff/department head and student parents. I truly enjoyed the experience of working at MSU.
wonderful benefits, access to many athletic events, tuition discounts, extended holidays
Administrative Assistant I (Current Employee) – Mississippi State, MS – February 24, 2016
The department I work for at MSU is horrid. Unprofessional and demeaning faculty. My supervisor specifically does not know the first thing about supervision. Everyone on campus knows that my supervisor is hard to work with, and before me not many assistants lasted long. The supervisor blames me for mistakes that I made while I was pregnant with horrible morning (all day) sickness, and also blames me for mistakes made when she told me to stay home around the holidays. Belittles me often with emails copied to several other people not only in my department, but other departments on campus.
Great benefits, leave rules, and several ways to get involved on campus.
Health Insurance for family is expensive. Uses the "buddy" system when choosing employees, which means they hire people they know.
Field Technical Assistant (Former Employee) – Starkville, MS – February 8, 2017
Great job, great perks. Loved every minute of it. I met very nice individuals. Learned a lot. very diverse culture. management kind of shaky depending on who your supervisor is. the most enjoyable part is meeting new people and helping others. however, the position i held was under a grant so the saddest part was being laid off due to he grant not being refunded.
Great place to work for. Wonderul and caring staff that gelled like family.
Program Assistant (Former Employee) – Durant, MS – January 24, 2017
Working for Mississippi State University was an honor. This job afforded me the opportunity to work with and meet people from all walks of life. The diversity encountered on this job has made me a better person today. The supervisors were genuinely concerned and they went out of there way to make sure you had every thing you needed to do your job. Our program funding ended and this is the reason I'm now searching for new employment.
Paid for 2 classes per sememester at the University
Associate Professor (Current Employee) – Meridian, MS – December 3, 2016
My experience teaching at Mississippi State University-Meridian Campus was mixed. I enjoyed the students, the size of the campus, the opportunity to work on research. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with students in Psi Chi, Psych Club, my research lab, and advising students for graduate school applications.
Small campus, easy parking, more one-on-one time with students.
Workload on the Meridian campus is three courses a semester, versus two courses on the Starkville campus, We do not have graduate assistants at the Meridian campus, but research expectations are the same as the main campus.
Field Technical Assistant (Former Employee) – Mississippi State, MS – January 15, 2017
The place to work with great colleagues and where everyone worked together. I really enjoyed working on the beautiful campus. I enjoyed traveling and meeting new people and helping those that needed help in seeking some educational needs.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Starkville, MS – October 9, 2015
Begin by going over the list from the previous week, setting priorities. I review the progress of existing projects, then check the calendar to refresh my memory on the upcoming week. I like to meet with my staff early, mid and late week to discuss priorities, check progress, and then prepare for the following week. I want to make sure, as much as possible, that we can all dedicate to tasks that move projects forward, so I make habits out of organizational tasks for speed.”

Student Researcher/Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Mississippi State, MS – May 10, 2016
The faculty I worked under at Mississippi State had a strong respect for the needs of their workers not only as employees, but as students, and were willing to give a wide margin of space whenever school began to conflict with work. They're the best possible employers for a student in Starkville.
This temporary job was exciting and afforded me many opportunities for extending my education.
Intermittent Interfviewer (Former Employee) – Starkville, MS – April 22, 2015
This was an energetic and rewarding job that allowed me to interact with many different people. The atmosphere was fun and entertaining. The people I worked with were all very talented people who did their best to make me feel comfortable in my role as an interviewer. I was able to learn a wealth of people skills from these employees.
Getting to interact with all sorts of different people, going to travel to places I wouldn't have normally and working with a wonderful group of people.
This was just a temporary job that had no benefits, I wasn't able to be creative with the interviews.
