Technician (Former Employee) – College Station, Tx – September 15, 2015
I learned so much from this job regarding professionalism, integrity, teamwork, focus, multitasking, prioritization, and honor.
During my time there, a lot of changes happened. Such is life. At all times, my managers were courteous and willing to answer questions. They all shared a professional demeanor; they were strict, but fair. Co-workers watched out for each other like family. The hardest part of the job is the high turnover rate for such a meticulous job. If you cannot roll with the punches, it will be difficult for you.
When in doubt, communicate with your manager. Lack of communication is the death of any relationship.
Having confidence that co-workers would have your back
Financial Specialist II (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – September 15, 2015
A typical day at work was very busy. It was always noisy due to constant re-modeling of the labs and offices. I learned a lot about state rules and regulations regarding a/p. My co-workers were great people. The hardest part of the job was being constantly interrupted, by people at my window, making deposits and payments. Most of the interruptions were due to people using me as an information center, looking for a certain office or person, when there were directories posted everywhere.

floater (Former Employee) – Commerce, TX – August 21, 2015
It was a good first college to start of as a new student but i did not feel positively motivated to work hard in school. It seemed more like a easy going lazy school where a lot of kids didn't know where they were heading and they were content with that feeling, i mostly was not and i knew i had to find a better academic atmosphere. I did work at the cafeteria for a month however with 19 hours of school work a part time left me very exhausted.
