My work at Texas A&M University - Commerce was compelling and knowledgeable. The staff at the university really cares about there employees and treats them with respect and care. I definitely gained much needed research experience as well as administrative experience.
excellent staff management, free luncheons once a month, valuable experience

Professional Assistant Professor (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – July 16, 2016
My passion is promoting good reading skills with every content and discipline. At TAMUCC my role was one of leadership and teaching. However, my salary was not commiserate with my role. For the past four years, I have completed a full time role with the same salary. I am looking for opportunity to serve and the opportunity to advance.
Teaching Assistant (TA) (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – June 30, 2016
having been involved with TAMU as both a student and an employee over the last 17 years I can say students are treated much better than employees. If you are looking for a well paying job with a company that respects it's employees as human beings and individuals, keep looking.
If you are looking for a university as a student, it is an outstanding facility.
Student Technician (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – June 28, 2016
Typical day involved checking internal error system to see if anyone had posted any tickets for IT problems. Checking with the administrative assistance to see if their computers were acting up. Repairing any simple problems( computer wont turn on, printer is acting up, mouse won't respond) and filling out tickets to the system administrators for major issues. I learned that even the most brilliant minds in the world can have problems fixing the simplest of issues. Management was good. They knew that this was a student position so they would have to deal with people reading or doing homework when there was downtime. The hardest part of the job was translating broken English (there were many foreign students who first or even second language was not English) into something that made sense so we could find the problem and fix it. The best part was actually meeting and talking to all these individuals from around the world and helping them.
worked around busy student schedule, relaxed atmosphere
Angry professors who did not tolerate any dawdling
Texas A&M University is very diverse, you get to meet people form other countries and states and learn about how they do things different and how they are adjusting to Texas A&M University. The health and wellness center plays an important role in the campus development . The profs here are helpful and encourage students to get into research to improve their resumes for the future.
