Security Guard (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – January 18, 2016
Tcu has excellent benefits for is employees a day there is pretty straight forward in maintaining the rules and policies set out by the chancellor and trustees for the students to follow. Tcu has some of the best people to work with most have 30 or more years in their profession it was an honor to work with them for as long as I did I really have no complaints about the job itself other than when you start working there you have to start on the graveyard shift and it can be quite some time before a better shift becomes available
Excellent benefits and pay for the work required
starting on late or graveyard hours until a day position opens
Controls Technician (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – October 24, 2016
a typical day at work was fixing any air condition or HVAC equipment to make the students or staff comfortable at the college. I learned all aspects of the HVAC industry. Co-workers there were kind and hard working. Hardest part of the job was there was not always work or something to fix or maintain. The most enjoyable part of the job were the co-workers everyone was very nice.
great benefits and they made their employees feel like family
no chances for promotion or upward movement of any kind
Sometimes tough working in the heat, but good management and reasonable hours
Lifeguard (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – May 31, 2016
Good hours, good coworkers that are often open to taking shifts if in need, management is helpful. The work can be a bit tough or monotonous as it requires standing/sitting in one place for long-ish periods of time, often in the heat (in the summer). You have to also clean and maintain the pool.
solid pay, good management, fairly easy-to-learn jobs
Head Supervisor of Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – February 17, 2012
During my employment with Texas Christian University, My talents were challenged and proved with the responsibility of 30 housekeepers, 5 floor crew and 17 residential buildings. All of this during the regular school year. After classes released in May the housekeeper count jumped to 42 housekeepers. I was responsible for planning and assigning building cleans for the end of the year and preparing dorms for summer school students, staff members and camps which are run throughout the summer. All of this requires timed cleaning schedules. I also attended summer meetings with other staff members in maintenance, summer conferences, and student affairs. I was responsible for time and attendance for all employees, maintaining relationships with outside vendors as well as other department heads.

Library Circulation Assistant (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – December 26, 2015
I enjoyed coming in to work every single day when I was working at the rock wall. My coworkers were all friendly and everyone there seemed to be very excited about the things we did. We worked at the rock wall and lead excursions through the outdoor program at TCU.
Library Assistant (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, Texas – September 30, 2015
Working at the Music Library was the perfect work-study job because it was super quiet, not many people used it so I had plenty of time to study and do homework, and we had a lot of holiday potlucks and donuts every Friday morning. A typical day of work consisted of checking books/media in and out of the library using the online and manual catalog systems, organizing and shelving books using the dewey decimal system, and using the matrix computer system to connect dvd players to the computers for patrons' use. When there wasn't any work to be done, I had the chance to do some homework and study. I learned a lot about time management because of finishing homework before class, shelving up to fifty books at a time in under ten minutes, and organize paperwork. I also gained a lot of teamwork skills from splitting up duties with my coworkers and figuring out how to trade shifts with people. All of my coworkers were librarians and other library assistants that were all work-study students. The hardest part of the job was adapting to using computer systems I had never heard of, but from that experience I gained the skill to adapt to different environments with ease. The most enjoyable part of the job was that the small space we had allowed for a small and relatively close community that was comfortable to work in.
financial aid, making friends, learning a lot about how the library works
GENERAL MANAGER (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – June 29, 2014
Typical work day always very exciting as it produced great challenges and opportunities for execution of all our set daily goals. I learnt new things everyday by observing and listening to students, faculty and staff feedback also feedback from my team members and all other stakeholders I interacted with. Management team had a full grasp of the vision and goals of the account. Has been very supportive and respected all departmental leadership and was open to all feedback from the frontline team members and supervisors. The hardest part of the job was controlling the concessions staff turn over. But the most enjoyable part were the team celebrations at the end of every quarter as we measured our team success.
Continuous training opportunities were great.
Communication huddles with the student government.
Health Services Administrator (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – June 25, 2013
The most enjoyable part of the job is working towards student patient quality care. The hardest part of the job is upper management not being able to comprehend how clinical services is held at a higher responsibility to quality reporting and policies than simply reporting to a non clinical department head whom knows nothing about medical standards nor medical legislation and how that legislation supersedes company generic practices
Differentiating medical laws vs. company practices
Administrative Assistant/Criminal Justice (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – January 16, 2014
Texas Christian University is a top notch college with the most beautiful, energizing and stimulating campus. The work environment is incredible and the education you can receive is well worth it. As a graduate of TCU and a staff member, I have seen the academic world from boths sides.
Bright, Inquisitive students and Challenging, Stimulating Faculty Members
Not enough upward mobility advancement opportunities for Staff Members
IT Worker (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – April 24, 2014
Management and workforce is a mix of older professionals and new professionals. Very entrenched in the way things are done and hesitant to change. Very "inbred" meaning, TCU hires their own graduates. This can hurt and help the institution. It limits the influx of new ideas, but fosters a sense of familiarity.
Fairly good health care
lack desire to change or improve and focus on upper-class white women.
