Management (Former Employee), Marshall, TXMarch 12, 2014
Pros: lots of activities for students and faculty
Cons: getting along with some people
A typical day was to ensure that students was happy. Ensure that students were able to get the materials needed for an education. Meet deadlines for state and federal statistical reports. Create activities for students and faculty to help support the curriculum. I learned that TSTC values their employees. Management was the hardest to understand especially – more... some Deans. The hardest part of the job was evaluation time. The most enjoyable was working with the students and planning activities. – less

new equipment and hands-on learning approach
Student Worker (Former Employee), welcome centerDecember 2, 2013
I get to work after class. Each day I learn how to deal with different types of people. The most difficult aspect of my job is smiling when one's day is not going well. The most enjoyable aspect of the job, is being show gratitude from an upset individual, when you have helped them solve their problem.

Lab Technician (Former Employee), Waco, TXAugust 8, 2013
Pros: great boss
Cons: was only paid minimum wage.
Well my typical day at work consisted of troubleshooting and fixing lab computers. I learned that not every cause has the same effect. My boss was very smart and knew how to run a department. My co-workers consisted of my old instructors. The hardest part of the job was getting all of the labs finished during semester break. The most enjoyable part – more... of the job was learning new things. – less

Full of dishonest people riding the gravy train...
with held (Current Employee), WacoMay 20, 2013
Pros: it's a state job. hard to get fired.
Cons: it's a state job, so it's hard to get fired!
This place is full of crooked people just trying to see how much they can get away with. Several students were made to work at an department heads house during class hours (and beyond). They reported that there was more equipment with the TSTC tag at his shop than in their class lab! They knew it wasn't purchased because he tried to hide it from them. – more... Same dept. head tried to get instructors to sign inventory control for equipment they did not have. Nothing was done when this was reported. SIx months later, the department head was promoted! – less

Sweetwater Campus is Toxic
Instructor (Current Employee), SweetwaterMay 6, 2013
Pros: students, co-workers, state retirement plan
Cons: mismanagement of resources, no clear plan, unsettling work environment, if i could retire now, i would.
A typical day with students is wonderful. For the most part they are excited about being there and willing to learn. My co-workers are great. The hardest part of the job is the constant revolving door of submitting schedules, finding room space, turning in syllabi, getting students certified, tracking everyone's calendars every 4 months.

Our team is – more... far understaffed for what we are being asked to accomplish. The gameplan has continued to change over the last 9 months. Impossible to hit management's moving target. We have an adjunct instructor that is teaching six courses and other duties assigned but TSTC doesn't have the money to move her to full-time. Yet there is a full-time instructor for the past year has taught only one class per semester and is getting full-time pay with benefits.
There isn't money to give raises but somehow money was found to pay for three new positions for a new program being developed. Our HR person is involved in much more than simple HR functions. But I guess she has to be since our President is hardly around. Yep took off for an extended weekend to the Kentucky Derby. I can barely afford my bills but our President travels the globe.

The Sweetwater campus is very toxic. People are in that "gotcha" mode and love keeping trouble stirred up. – less
