Educational and character enhancing oppurtunity
TA for Earth Science/Earth & Universe (Current Employee), Kingsville, TXMarch 18, 2014
Pros: oppurtunity
Being a TA at TAMUK has been a life changing and enjoyable experience. Cumulatively I have taught 6 labs which have progressively developed me not only as a student but as a geologist. It has made it easier to relate the knowledge I have acquired through my academic career to those with little understanding of the subject. This experience has given – more... me a greater interest in the success of my peers and those I call my students. The most enjoyable part of this job was interacting with my students and developing an individual interest in their success within their own academic fields. – less

Work Study, Nice people and Good experience.
Supervisor, Amy Manning (Former Employee), Commerce, TXMarch 6, 2014
Pros: flexible hours and the ability to work on my studies.
Cons: structure of office decorum..
My typical day at work would start out with me looking to see if we had any jobs in the in box for the professors /graduate students. After filling the jobs the next step is to check the mail and distributing it in the proper boxes. While filling the jobs I would answer the phones and transfer calls to the proper office or take messages.

Another part – more... of the job would be to do errands whether personal or professional for the supervisors.

The best part of my job would be that I was able to learn office operations and work on my course studies when the office was slow.

The hardest part of the job was that some of the professors were wanting their work done first even though they were not the most urgent orders put in. – less

Economics Department- Student Worker (Current Employee), College Station, TXFebruary 21, 2014
I would meet with many people throughout my day and it was ever changing. No day was ever the same and that is what I love. I learned how to perform many office tasks and my communication skills have very much improved. The hardest part of the job was learning how to use the many machines. My co workers are all students which makes the atmosphere amazing. – more... The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing how everything runs and being behind the scenes is amazing. – less

Opportunity was given to me and I am thankful. I believe if I had not gotten hired on at the post office I could see myself advancing at TAMU.
Clerical Work (Former Employee), College Station, TXFebruary 4, 2014
Pros: comp-time, if you had to work thru lunch or late to finish a project.
Cons: depends on the projects, not enough time in the day to complete.
I must indeed say that a typical day at work was great for me as well as challenging. Over thirty years ago, my typing speed was about 80/4 and I did go to many interviews before I was hired. I learned that I could do this. Just listen, follow orders, read and can all you learn. It was at TAMU when the Apple Computers came out and one of the professors – more... would log me in and I would type and he would come and do the rest, etc.. Otherwise, I typed on a electrical type-writer or the word processor. Management were great and my co-workers were nice. In some of the offices they were somewhat older ladies, but nice. The hardest part of the job was taking control, afraid that I would fail, not realizing that is a part of life. Being confident in what I was doing and enjoying every moment of it. – less
