Admissions Advisor (Current Employee) – College Station, TX – November 6, 2013
Thru this position I worked for Texas A&M University in Austin, Texas. I worked from home and I was out in the field recruiting students from over 40 high schools to assist them with applying to Texas A&M. I was a recent college graduate and to have my first job working from home I believe it has made me a stronger candidate because I had to be self motivated to insure that I was on top of everything. If my next job were to be in an office setting I would be able to perform my work duties with little supervision due to the fact that I am already an independent worker. The hardest part of my job was working with students all year knowing that not everyone would get admitted. The one thing that always made me happy was when a student thanked me for my help.
Computer Support Specialist (Current Employee) – College Station, TX – November 14, 2016
I'm an IT tech at TAMU CVM, and while you'll meet plenty of great people and get to see some new tech, you're not going to climb anywhere. You're not going to get trained well, and management uses the 'other duties as assigned' to give you more work. If you don't want to be overrun, don't let on that you know more than you were hired on for.
Great people to work with, benefits are good
Paid pennies for T1 helpdesk support, micromanagement with poor training
IT Consultant for Columbia Advisory Group (Former Employee) – Commerce, TX – September 22, 2016
Very poor experience. There is a self appointed kingdom consisting of a systems admin who will pick you apart and bad mouth you to your boss, and has all the warmth and empathy of a shark. He essentially runs the department.
Benefits? They begin after a YEAR of employment, if you make it that far.
Saw two guys leave before me, and I was only there for 5 months.
Worse than no support, this company was depressing and belittling to work for.
I have over 15 years experience as a Systems Administrator. It isn't my first go around.
easy going environment. Loved working with the students and alumns. Assisted with different events the alumni office sponsored. Acted as office manager in the absence of the director and/or Assistant Director.
low stress environment, good benefits, fun co-workers
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.
Student (Former Employee) – Commerce, TX – December 17, 2016
As a student, the best day is the day that I got all my lessons with feedback. I learned that good management is a prelude to success.My others co-students who work hard find it easier to succeed. The hardest part of the job is when students do not cooperate in team. But the most enjoyable is when team work is implemented based on needs of the students.
Research Associate (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – August 11, 2016
Compensation here was terrible. The system grinds out graduate students and requires so much work from them that there is no life aside from the research group that you hope you picked properly for 5 years of your life.
This was a rewarding job but again, dependent on grants//funding for salary. I loved working with the students and when one would succeed and pass a class it was such a good feeling knowing I helped them get there. Loved this job but graduated and moved away.
UCARE Director (Current Employee) – Killeen, TX – February 18, 2017
This is an awesome place to work. We founded the "Batcave" in a small back office and today it is now a university level dept. I absolutely love my Grad Assistants and the work we do. The professors who helped create UCARE have been excellent mentors! Each and every one of the 25+ students that have worked within UCARE's walls have gone on to be fantastic and awesome "adults." The culture of the Batcave and its Minions is one of flexibility, collaboration, two-way mentoring, and fun. We all have learned how to handle multiple projects in different phases while under pressure with expert professionalism. The hardest part of this job is losing the grad assistants. when they graduate because we have developed such a unique work relationship. The easiest part of UCARE is doing the work. Our team is just awesome and I'm happy and proud of each and every one of the Minions!
Flex hours, variety of projects, awesome engagement with the community
Budget is not big enough to really support all the projects we wish to undertake with the community
Student Worker - Veteran's Affairs Work Study (Former Employee) – Commerce, TX – May 19, 2016
The most flexible job I ever had. I was able to adjust hours to suit my needs any way I wanted: number of hours, days I worked, even times I worked. I learned a lot about tuition costs and financial aid, probably more than your average college student. I also learned specifics about VA benefits and many other veteran students.
Great work experience that allowed me to learn the different components of cyber security.
Computer Security Analyst (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – January 6, 2016
A typical day at work consisted of reviewing daily/weekly reports that were generated by our security systems. I learned how to manage a variety of software, as well as develop my interpersonal skills. Management was very understanding and flexible with my college schedule. My co-workers were great to work with. They always brought knew and exciting ways of solving problems. The hardest part of the job was creating queries for one of our security systems. The most enjoyable part of the job was collaborating with other IT departments to meet a common goal.
Poor working environment at Political science department
Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – January 26, 2017
Professors are worried more about their achievements than the impact their work has on important education/economic/management policies, especially in regards to marginalized communities. Race and ethnicity is used as a gold mine for easy publications, but very few of the professors care about those communities.
custodial services for the student center (Former Employee) – Commerce, TX – March 31, 2016
Custodial jobs aren't good in my opinion wherever they are . The office staff continually griped about the job being done,and other co workers on other crews didn't do their jobs and nothing was done about it . Ther pay wasn't good they had good benefits at that time but have since privatized and took them away
Director of Alumni & Development (Current Employee) – Kingsville, TX – January 3, 2017
Working at A&M-Kingsville has allowed room for advancement within the University. Work days varied depending on the time of year. Leadership under Dr. Tallant were all solid to work for and with. The hardest part of the job was wearing many hats, but gave me the opportunity to be diverese.
Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Kingsville, TX – July 25, 2016
There is a lot of flexibility and work involved. As a grad student, you need to always be committed to giving your best work efforts and finding ways to improve your professional and career skills. I have been very blessed with many opportunities to take advantage of here.
Field work, application, connections, opportunities
You have your own class, the goal is to help the student taking physics class acquire the materials and learn. It is exactly like what professor does, with extra work because you have to explained in details. The SI leader works with the students at their level and improve it. The schedule is flexible. The job is time consuming every student has different problem and you have to help them all. Co-works are tutors and instructor, they are friendly and helpful. The best part is that you meet a lot of students and make new friends.
Lab/Field Technician (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – January 23, 2017
I enjoyed the job. I gained valuable knowledge and experience. There were many projects covering many different areas of agriculture and environmental research. I seek to obtain a job related to these fields.
