I enjoy working at Prairie View A&M University.Working here allows me quick access from work to my classes. Management is fair and easy to communicate with. A typical day at work has me dealing with filing student and staff records.
The pay is reasonable for a Graduate Assistant position. The staff are friendly. No micromanaging.
Located far from Houston about a minimum of 45 minute drive, Parking is a issue unless you arrive early.

The University is under new leadership, and trying to re-vamp everything so that it is run well. The efforts for change are coming, but are very slow. The waste and inefficiency is extremely frustrating.
Adminitrative Assistant I & Teacher Assistant (Former Employee) – Prairie View, TX – November 21, 2016
Typical day included general paper work and grading, answering phones and anything the staff needed. Greatest part of the job was the flexibility of the schedule while I attended classes. The management became more like a family environment because they were very concerned with how the student workers lives were going both work and personal wise.

Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Prairie View, TX – October 8, 2015
As a employee of Prairie View A&M University for last 2 years I have learned how to communicate with different people with different skills and learn a lot of things from my professors as well as from my colleagues.
A typical day would be to assist student athletes of PVAMU with daily academic assignments and academic daily events and activities. In other capacities when need my assignments included repairing, troubleshooting technical issues within the department computer systems. The management was average due to position changes which made the level of consistency difficult. The most enjoyable part was the ability to create certain policies that would best work for the faculty as well as the student athletes.
A typical day is from 8-5 and its a school so everyones on a computer or filing papers and getting tickets to give us to assistant the campus. I learned that computer solutions can be easy and then they can be really difficult but just take your time and figure it out as promptly as you can. My CIO was very vocal in letting us know what we had to do and what needed to be done around the campus, which made me and my co-workers better IT. My co-workers helped when needed and we kept a calm and stress free environment. The hardest part about my job would be the time we have to assist staff and students. I enjoy that they show there appreciation for us as employees all the time.
