I was employed at Texas Tech for two years while juggling school and clubs. Management was more than understanding and always had time to discuss upcoming deadlines as well as scheduling restrictions. It was an important learning experience while I was in classes and enriched my time at Texas Tech as a whole.

The work-study program at Texas Tech University is a wonderful program. The hours are built around your schedule of classes and time spent at work is usually for homework. It allows me to be productive as well as help the department.
I had no problem finding a job as a student. They worked well with my schedule and were supportive. I got to work at several events in the United Spirit Arena including sports games, concerts, conferences, and graduations. They almost always fed us and we all worked very well together.
The work area was always busy and fun other staff always willing to help and go that extra mile to help in what ever needed to be taking care of in the office as will as patient care. Management was there in moments of un decision that were needing input from others. Work as a team and completed every task done as needed at the end of the day.
Student Assistant, Office of the President (Current Employee) – Texas – August 8, 2017
Texas Tech treats it's students and employees with the utmost respect and this made it a wonderful work environment. I was a student while working here and my supervisors were great in being flexible with my schedule.
The administrators at this school do a good job, and the school has moved very close to becoming a national research sort of institution. I enjoyed my work assistant teaching while a PhD student, and also assisting students with technology and software in the computer labs.
I worked as a teaching assistant while I finished my Master's degree at TTU. This job was great because the professors and students that I worked with were all amazing! As a student I knew how much of a positive impact it could make when you have a great TA for a difficult course. That thinking guided many of my decisions as a TA and helped me to earn the respect of each of my students.

Every day, I evaluate cotton fiber properties of different genotypes. I learned how to analyze and interpret the result. All professors, workers, and graduate students around me are hardworking and solve problems by discussing it. The hardest part of the job is data acquiring.The most enjoyable part of the job is data analysis and interpreting them.

I loved working for the TECHniques center at Texas Tech, because it allows you to have the freedom to build your own schedule with your student. The job is very rewarding and allows you to be creative in coming up with content to help your student learn. I only wish that I could have been employed here longer!
