Pivot Maintenance Trainie (Former Employee) –  Farmington, NMJuly 21, 2016
Chill work environment if you enjoy being outside all the time. I liked it. I learned a lot about farming techniques, operating farm equipment (such as tractors, ect.), learned how to drive manual for the first time and handling power tools. The hardest part of the job would have to be the heat, some days are nice, but when it's hot the task you are doing becomes a bit of a challenge.
Pros
Outside, Learned a lot
Cons
Hot days

Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) –  Las Cruces, NMJanuary 21, 2016
NMSU Civil Engineering Department is a wonderful place to work for. A typical day entails working in lab and mentoring undergraduate students. My professor is very hands off so it allows for a lot of independence but requires a willingness to learn and work hard.
