Information Desk Worker (Current Employee) – College Station, TX – November 15, 2017
This was the best job I could've asked for the staff is great and everyone was nice. I learned to be able to talk to people one-on-one and deal with problems. The best days to work were the football game days because it was fast paced.
Texas A&M has numerous opportunities for students to work part time, and many of the positions have benefits. However, it is very difficult to get a full time job with the university; you basically have to be the best of the best.
International Student Advisor II (Current Employee) – College Station, TX – November 9, 2017
My work life at Texas A&M was a very productive one. I enjoyed my job as a whole. I feel that I learned a lot while working in that capacity. I'm just at a point where I want to do something different.
Recreational Sports Assistant (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – November 6, 2017
A typical day is working a 4 hour shift either in our departments game room/ fitness center. Fun games to play, there is ping pong, different gaming systems, cards, board games and more. In the fitness center, employees check out lockers to those working out, clean equipment and enjoy new people coming in. Hardest part of the job is when its late and there are no students or faculty in our game room or fitness center because time goes by slow. Overall the people are nice and you get a lot of regulars.
Vice President of Student Affairs (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – November 6, 2017
The typical work day was sometimes quick-paced or kind of slow depending on the time of the year. I learned how to allocate accounts, create better spreadsheets, create purchasing invoices, and so much more. The work place culture was good. The hardest part of the job was balancing work loads for 5-6 different people at a time. It was challenging and helped me find a good way to manage my time and put tasks in order from "urgency" to "whenever you get to it is fine". The most enjoyable part of my day was knowing that when I completed one of my tasks I helped take stress off of my co-workers.
Texas A&M University- Commerce is a great place to work. The people here are friendly, helpful, caring and want to see everyone being used to the best ability. This institution truly cares about their working family and strongly believes in providing the best education to enhance the future of our students.
The position I was in at the University was a very strange one. I was used by professors to grade their exams. My supervisor was never at work and would use me as a voicemail service to explain excuses for her absences.
It was fun and productive because of interaction with the students and nice colleagues.
Instructional Assistant Professor (Current Employee) – College Station, TX – October 29, 2017
I enjoy working here because of the relaxed and creating environment. In addition, it is a nice experience interacting with the students who are in general smart and respectful. However, since it is a public school, the pay is not great.
Utility Design Coordinator (Former Employee) – College Station, TX 77845 – October 28, 2017
When I applied for the job I did not know that it was more engineering based than I thought. I had to overcome a very large learning curve with learning new software and how to survey. It was hard but I was able to do it with the help of a great supervisor.
By far one of the easiest job that I have ever had. The managers are all very laid back and the director is not only smart but friendly. Just come to work and as long as you aren't a constant no call/ no show you will be fine.

Teaching Assistant (TA) (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – October 20, 2017
Working as a Teaching Assistant during graduate school offered additional experience with students. Teaching complex ideas in a way that most students can understand always gave me the most enjoyment of anything I've ever done in my career. I hope to be able to go back to teaching when I no longer desire to work in the corporate world.
