Academic Advisor I (Former Employee), College Station, TXApril 2, 2015
Collaborative special projects, regular communication with other units, recruitment events, host prospective students and families, provide academic counsel to students

I developed a foundational knowledge in administrative structure and process. I learned to quickly adjust to frequent changes in management.

My co-workers were excellent at the time I left. All were very productive and fun to work with.

The hardest part of the job was the seasonal work load. All work was enjoyable but not as consistent in volume; however, this gave me the opportunity to manage my work appropriately through the year.

Awesome management and co-workers, enjoyable work.
Helpdesk Analyst (Current Employee), Kingsville, TXMarch 31, 2015
Pros: Flexible schedule
Cons: Late hours
A typical day at work is answering phone calls and helping people face to face. I've learned a bit about technology. Management is great and seem to really love what they do. Co-workers are always helpful and flexible with time. The hardest part of the job is not know how to solve an issue with a customer. The most enjoyable part is actually solving the issue students are facing with technology.

Cashier
Cashier (Current Employee), Commerce, TXMarch 30, 2015
Pros: fun employees, experienced managers, good hours
Cons: skeleton crew at a few hours, college kids complaining about money.
I enjoy working at the store. The fellow employees are nice and casual people. The managers know what to say and how to phrase wording so that customers are not upset. The work flow can be brainless but I enjoy rush times where I can keep shelves stocked and help customers with any and most issues that arise. I learned how to run the registers and do returns, book buy-backs and most customer service. If I can not help a customer I always ask them if they would like to talk to the manager in charge.
The hardest part is my Tuesday/Thursday's because I am upfront by myself and do not have the ability to roam the store sorting and organizing the stock. I just can stare at is and make a list of what needs to be fixed when a coworker comes in.

The experience that I learned provided me with the knowledge that has been with me all through my career.

My co-workers were like one big happy family.

Learning the accounting system took the longest to learn since I only used it once a month.
