A perfect place to develop as a scientist and teacher
Research Scientist and Lecturer (Former Employee), Commerce, TX – June 12, 2014
At Texas A&M University-Commerce, I primarily focused in doing research in areas of the theoretical nuclear physics and astrophysics. The atmosphere is wonderful as we have the world top scientists working in this department. I have occasionally taught physics classes, such as I have taught a full course on the graduate level Quantum Mechanics, served – more... as guest lectures for graduate level Theoretical Mechanics, and an undergraduate level Wave Mechanics. – less
Contacted with departments in order to ensure timely due dates. Assisted with the annual inventory, hands on doing it. Used to the scanner to control inventory, but also learned to do it manually. I learned everyday something new. Any obstacle that came in, I was taught to address it the best possible.My co-worker's were always very helpful and dedicated – more... to their jobs. The hardest part of my job was dealing with a department that was rude and did not want to corporate with us, but I was taught to be patient and to address him the nicest way possible, at the end the department did what was told. – less
Productive, fun and diverse environment to work in!

Pros: cultural diversity, professional environment
As a Community Adviser in Texas A & M University-Kingsville Residents life, I truly enjoy the culturally diverse interactions among students and faculty members. It was an environment of motivated workers and very productive. A typical day at work consisted of paper filling, escorting, answering telephone, filling mail, handling confidential and sensitive – more... information of residents as well as portraying great communication and customer service. Every little part of the job was extremely enjoyable, sometimes we had late night conflicts that we must solve to ease the residents stay and we early starts, either way, it was an enjoyable experience, especially interaction I built among students and my self. – less
Senior Caller (Former Employee), Commerce, TX – May 30, 2014
Cons: pay is minimum wage w/ maximum 16 hours/wk. each time the school is on break, the call center closes.
It's a typical call-center setting. I learned excellent customer service and receptionist skills. Management is very accommodating to students. The most enjoyable part of the job is taking part in University programs like "Homecoming Door Decorating" with your coworkers. The hardest part of the job is soliciting for donations.
Peer Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), College Station, TX – May 27, 2014
I was in charge of helping the students with their class work and grading the assignments. The program was in transition so the expectations were not clear for anyone. The students were very lost in the class work and there was too much for them to handle at times. The grading was also to much for the TAs to handle at times along with our classwork.
Research Assistant (Former Employee), College Station, TX – May 21, 2014
Was given daily tasks upon arrival to be completed. Supervisors were always available to give advise and encouragement. I synthesized homogeneous and immobilized catalysts to compare results. Multiple catalysis reactions were done with each catalyst with different solvents. My co-workers were very uplifting and reliable.
