It was a great work enviornment for a full-time student.
Student Research Assistant (Former Employee), AustinJune 26, 2015
Pros: Flexible Work Schedule
The times I have worked with for St. Edward's University have been great. They are very flexible since they know I'm a student. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with professors that have taught me in the past. It was a great opportunity to show them what I could do in a work enviornment.

Pretty chill and in a friendly environment - great people
Tutor (Former Employee), Austin, TXJune 15, 2015
This review is pretty pointless in my case sense I was simply a student working as a tutor part time.

HOWEVER!

The faculty is simply wonderful (I mostly dealt with math faculty) to deal with and are very flexible with timing (for tutors). Everything is pretty much built for the students' schedule.

All of the staff I met during my time (2012-2015) were pretty happy and friendly with each other and students.

Would definitely recommend.

Productive and fast paced environment
Office Assistant (Former Employee), Austin, TXFebruary 27, 2015
Pros: time flexibility and great help from coworkers
Served as the main help in the career office and assisted all students, staff and employers that had any questions regarding our services and helped setting up appointments. I was in charge of making any changes to our website and uploading new jobs based on the information that we received from employers. It was a very fast paced environment as I tracked the calendar and scheduled of 7 staff/counselor members in our office. I was very fortunate to also help with the promotion of our job fair and setting everything up for the event to be a success.

Independent Researcher (Current Employee), Natural SciencesJuly 24, 2014
Under the great leadership of my research advisor I learned a ton about hard work, discipline and academic rigor. Working here has showed me what it takes to be a biologist and I've never wanted to pursue it more.

Freshman Studies, Rhet & Comp Instructor (Former Employee), Austin, TXJune 16, 2014
Pros: collaborative work environment and idea-driven community
Cons: not dependable working contracts
At most universities, autonomy is the status quo, and this was also the case at St. Edward's University, though this was the first university that also embraced team-teaching and collaboration. I enjoyed having faculty members to discuss ideas and theories in effective writing and strategies in editing. Students were motivated, respectful, and full of enthusiasm. Guiding editing, revision, and writing instruction was satisfying.

The most difficult time was summer when there were few classes to offer to instructors and I had to go many months without work waiting for the Fall. I would have loved to continue work there had it been dependable.

University environment in which every professor and admin knows your name
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), Austin, TXFebruary 12, 2014
Expect one on one time (and free coffee or two) with your professor and learn the ins-and-outs of collegiate academia. Learn the steps they took to be where they are and make close, lifelong friends from your colleagues.

Awesome working environment with great supervisors
Communication Intern - Office of Career Services (Current Employee), Austin, TXJanuary 19, 2014
A typical day at work consisted of many tasks such as:
Coordinating projects from eight staff members, monitoring five social media networks and updating content, posting information about events and services on social media, scheduling communications at peak times using HootSuite software, promoting career services through diverse media, e-mails, and campus flyers, managing the “Success Outcomes” website/ blog, and writing blog entries about students and employers; conducting interviews to gather information.

My supervisors were some of the best people I ever met. They were fun, relatable, smart, and most importantly, dependable. I definitely learned how to multi-task, perform under pressure, and meet deadlines in an office setting.

The "hardest" part about my job was managing up to five tasks all at once. There were a lot of different projects that I was assigned, but through a nice schedule and responsible time- management, I managed to always complete my work!
