Good training, poor pay.
Supervising Instrumentation Specialist (Former Employee), Lubbock, TXAugust 14, 2014
Pros: excellent training, good stability

I received lots of training in instrumentation and utility plants and was regularly sent to training seminars and classes concerning the equipment I regularly worked on. I learned the basics of instrumentation and how a utilities plant operates. Management was generally knowledgeable, competent and fair. The hardest part of the job was being called – more... out at all hours and on weekends to fix problems. I enjoyed working on the equipment and learning new things. – less

Physics Tutor (Former Employee), Lubbock, TXAugust 11, 2014
On a given day, I would spend my time between classes tutoring underclassmen on various physics topics. Depending on the day, I would share a room with 0-4 other tutors, with whom I was and still am friends. There was no pay involved, but it was rewarding to facilitate learning in the students and to hear about their improved comprehension, usually – more... from continuously improving grades within a given class – less

Student of Horticultural and Turfgrass Sciences
Student (Former Employee), TXJune 15, 2014
I completed my degree courses online and my common core and sciences at the local college. The online course was the same as the in class courses with the exception of attending lectures. Labs, term papers, and exams were all the same as if in class. The online courses required time management and self motivation to complete assignments.

Comfortable Environment, but Isolating
IT Support Technician (Current Employee), TXApril 17, 2014
Pros: benefits and work load
Cons: low pay, management not helpful
On a typical day at work, I am sitting in an office without windows in the back of our call center. My main interaction with other people is via phone, and I rarely see or interact with my coworkers. I enjoy speaking to and helping my customers, and I am always willing to serve them and research their difficulties. I have learned a lot of patience and – more... have become more self-sufficient. I work on the knowledge base and keep work orders up to date when customers are not calling.

My management will sporadically try to micro-manage, when for the first few months they chose to not give me any direction or training at all, save for listening to some phone conversations with my coworkers. My management also tends to be very loud and interrupts my phone conversations with customers frequently. This becomes stressful and disrupts the call center greatly.

My co-workers are far more knowledgeable than most of the management and are able to answer my questions and are always willing to assist me and brainstorm with me.

The hardest part of the job is simply getting the day started. After the first call comes in, my job becomes enjoyable. I work and solve problems with my customers and I enjoy helping them. – less

Wreck 'Em Texas Tech!
Lab Assistant (Former Employee), TXApril 8, 2014
In my time as a student assistant, I was able to not only acquire many of the skills necessary to my career in teaching, but also to hone my own skills in my content area (Agriculture). Texas Tech is a great environment for students as well as workers, and I am truly proud that I had the chance to teach there.
