Great, Great, Great
Hearing Impaired Captionist (Former Employee), San Marcos, TXJuly 23, 2014
Pros: student pay, flexible schedule, manager
Cons: heat, weight of equipment
While working with the ODS department of Texas State, I enjoyed working with the hearing impaired and helping them with note taking through a type-to-text way of doing things.

The only hard thing about this position was the weather. We all know that Texas State is no joke when it comes to hills, steps, and heat. It's like nothing you have ever been – more... through. The backpack that you have to carry the equipment in starts to get heavier but it works out if you happened to skip the gym that day like I did so often with school and work.

The management was perfect. She was always willing to work with my schedule and anything else that would spring up with the busy life of a hard working student.

It's also one of the top paying jobs that you can get on campus. Who wouldn't want to sit and type and learn a new subject that you get paid for? It's a no brainer. It's almost like getting two degrees (well concentrations) for the price of one. I was able to learn about art, history, British literature and even SPED by just sitting and typing and helping the hard of hearing to take notes.

Great position. – less

Student Support Services Resident Assistant/Mentor (Former Employee), San Marcos, TXJuly 22, 2014
Pros: great co-workers, free meals, free room and board, on campus.
Cons: long hours
After having worked for Texas State University for the past 4 years of my undergraduate career, I have to say it is an incredible place to work. My typical day at work was from 6am till 5:30, then after hours in dormitories with my students. My co-workers are very enthusiastic and fun to work with! The hardest part of my job is the long hours, however, – more... I love everything about it. – less

Excellent student job
Technical Support Representative (Former Employee), San Marcos, TXJuly 3, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: low pay, no benefits
A typical day involved helping students and faculty/staff with any number of different computer and administrative-type problems. We were front-line tech support for the entire university. I learned adaptability mostly. Having to support a constantly shifting array of programs and processes makes you good at learning new concepts quickly and efficiently. – more... The IT management was great, but hindered by the controlling bureaucracy of the school management. The best part of the job was being able to help technophobes with their problems and teach them that technology isn't all bad. My co-workers were a blast too. – less

Enjoyable job for Full-time College Students
Textbook Clerk (Former Employee), San Marcos, TX 78666June 27, 2014
Pros: best atmosphere i've ever worked in, educational atmosphere, great management and kind-hearted people.
Cons: the pay was minimum wage--which is fine if you're a college student and don't have much to pay for, but it doesn't work out after graduating.
I enjoyed working at the University Bookstore a lot. I'd arrive for my shift, most of the time I was in the Warehouse so I was in charge of making sure the ISBNs on the textbooks matched up with the requested shipping lists, packaging and shipping off boxes of books to other institutions or publishing companies. I was in charge of maintaining the textbook – more... inventory as it fluctuated with the constant outgoing and incoming shipments of textbooks depending on what was going to be used for a course the following semester. I learned a lot about data entry and maintaining accuracy as well as physical safety when dealing with 70-80lb boxes of textbooks. I also assisted students in finding the textbooks they needed for their courses, or supplemental texts that would aide them in succeeding in their courses. The management was amazing. I loved all of my managers and all of my co-workers. It was such a friendly environment comprised of funny, considerate people and we really did all we could do to help one another out the entire time I worked there--we were very cohesive as a team. The hardest part of my job was strictly the physical labor that was involved. In this case, however, I was technically titled "textbook clerk"--when in actuality, I volunteered myself to work primarily in the Warehouse dealing with shipments and packaging. The heavy lifting was the most difficult part for me, but it was also beneficial because while I was being productive at work I was simultaneously working out! I really loved everything about that job and I was sad to leave it. I had to leave because the position is only offered to current Texas State students and when I graduated in May, I lost that position. – less

Graduate Instructional Assistant Math 1311 (Current Employee), San Marcos, TexasApril 29, 2014
Pros: positive feedback from students
Cons: teaching while taking graduate courses is not an easy feat!

Beautiful campus
Student (Former Employee), San Marcos, TXMarch 5, 2014
Texas State University was a beautiful campus with lots of trees and water. The campus is in the middle of the hill country of Texas, so it always felt like you were walking up hill everywhere you went. While attending Texas State, I completed the necessary coursework to obtain a BS degree in Biology-Microbiology maintaining anywhere between one and – more... three jobs at a time. I was a peer mentor and tutor at Texas State University for approximately two years. During that time I was awarded Texas State's Tutor of the Year from 2010-2011. I was a math and science tutor at the University and was contacted by San Marcos Baptist Academy in San Marcos to tutor middle school and high school students in the evenings. In the last year of my education, I jumped on an opportunity to participate in biochemistry research at the university. I volunteered as a research assistant for almost a year in the department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. I had to move to Austin and commute to school my senior year, and found a tutoring job in Austin at Mathnasium. I learned a lot about patience, understanding, and perseverance. – less
