Go in and log onto your computer and check you emails respond to them and help customers. I excelled in my customer service skills. Management were great and flexible. Outgoing and nice. Being asked to work 4 extra before going home but was done. Working in such a prestigious University.
Eating food from the culinary school at Rice University.
A typical day was hard work and getting the job done. Enjoyed working with undergraduate and graduate students to assist them in adding and/or dropping classes. Enjoyed assisting faculty with events and conferences. For the employee were always encouraged to take classes to learn new systems. The hardest part of the job was making the student aware that the Examinations and Standing committee denied their case.

As a student, working a job on campus has many benefits, and work is very flexible if you have test or something. Your job depends on your positions, and can be anything from managing a library to filing papers or staring at a computer.
If you love outstanding scientific research, Rice University is the perfect place. The city of Houston is great and the campus is just minutes away from its cultural district. The library is the best I've ever been to. The laboratories are amazing!

Program Coordinator (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – September 8, 2015
Overall it is a very good place to work. I have found that most everyone on campus is incredibly supportive, no matter what department they are in. I have never called someone for help and been told they did not have the time for me. I have learned that we are all in this as a team. My co-workers are wonderful, caring and talented individuals, who again see the department as a team and not as a group of individuals.
What I find difficult about the job is the lack of advancement. The job is, what the job is, no matter how good you may be at it, you will never be awarded with a raise or a promotion. You must leave where you are happy and comfortable in order to secure more money and a promotion of any sort.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the access to all forms educational lectures, visiting artists and performers. We have an incredible window to the world within our hedges!
Access to lectures, art and music
Lack of promotions and lack of flexibility in vacations
Lead Research Administrator (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – June 16, 2015
Rice prides itself on hiring the best and brightest. That being said, there is a pouring out of critical thinking and innovative ideas at Rice. Although the work can be demanding, it also challenges one to do his/her best - resulting in a sense of satisfaction from both the employee and supervisor.
Exciting place to work
Because it is small, advancement opportunites are limited
