Business Center Undergraduate Assistant (Current Employee) – College of Engineering Dean's office – July 23, 2017
On a typical working day I usually process about six to eight documents. One of the specialist assigns me a request and I process it, submit it and track it throughout the approval journey. I have learn to focus my attention to one task at a time and included all the required documentation in the beginning. Working in the business center has taught me that communication is an essential part of a team. The hardest part of my job is to prioritize the assignments requested in a typical day. The most enjoyable part is to build a good relationship with your co-workers.
I moved to Austin for a job at UT and it is a great community. However, compared to other large, public, urban universities, pay is not competitive and its hard to move up. There are some kinds of professional development.
San Antonio Financial Aid Officer II (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – June 21, 2017
UTSA is a fine place to work. It's not the best job in the world, but it certainly isn't the worst. The overall pay leaves a lot to be desired, especially for the amount of work you are asked to do, but the benefits, and paid time off are very nice.
exactly what i was sold but not quite exactly what i experienced
Program Director, NSF AGEP (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – June 13, 2017
i was fortunate enough to have an amazing offer from UT to get my Ph.D. - then found out it was offered to me after the first chosen person rejected it. that sort of set the tone for my time there. i was simultaneously very well supported and somewhat let to slide. i was very largely responsible for this so no hard feelings, but things could've gone a bit better.
A typical day consists of attending meetings to analyze and plan deployments and issues in the computer lab environment. Some days are more technical requiring work on VDI, Imaging, Group Policies, Domain Security issues, Enterprise Print Management, Papercut and such.
Great Schedule, New Technologies, low stress
Pay isn't the greatest but some of the pros make up for that.
work life balance. With half the amount of people as compared to other companies, they get the same work done.

Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – April 9, 2017
I have been at U.T.S.A. as a student or faculty for 17 years and it is a kind of second home. My colleagues in the Political Science Department are supportive and the University's desire to evolve and explore new approaches to teaching and student development poses challenges that prevent a simple and repetitive environment from developing. Additionally, interaction with faculty, administration, and staff from other departments and programs provides multiple opportunities to explore new ideas and approaches to achieving the broader goals of the University.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – April 7, 2017
For anyone who loves Legos and happens to be an artist, whether visual or musical, working there was like being a child again. Setting up and tearing down the stages for the acts coming into town was hard work yet extremely enjoyable. I did this moreso for the fun aspect. I had jobs at the time I worked there. This was more of an opportunity to fulfill a wish to work behind the scenes at an event. It was also a part time / on call type of job.

It's small campus at Houston location but it offers plenty of classes. The tuition for this school is cheaper compare to others. The staffs are very professional and high-skilled. Class size is also small, thus the interaction between professor and student is great. Overall, it's quite impressive. I learn a lot.
