It was good to deal with students in clarifying their academic doubts and was also informative as I learned new things both academically and personaly

The work hours would be different depending on my class hours. I have learnt many things such as being punctual, dealing with students of different mind sets etc. the management was very cooperative and helpful in providing a healthy work environment. Tests were conducted for employees to improve their efficiency. There was nothing hard about the job. It was fun working there.

Productive workplace with good interdepartmental collaborations
Recitation Instructor (Former Employee), Houston, TXMarch 10, 2015
Pros: the wonderful opportunities for interdisciplinary study and collaboration
Cons: splitting my time between research and teaching was a bit difficult for me
A typical day at work consisted of performing research on a protein involved in the immune response in human beings. Additionally, I taught students on a daily basis.

I learned advanced organic and biological chemistry, how to perform a wide variety of experiments after designing them, and how to teach students in terms of classroom management and writing my own lectures and assessments.

My colleagues were wonderfully supportive of both my research and my teaching. The hardest part of the job was saying goodbye to my students at the end of each semester. The most enjoyable part of my job was teaching.

Team Work
Grader and Proctor (Former Employee), Houston, TxMarch 7, 2015
Great working experience. Worked as a team to grade college level Math home-works, quizzes and exams.
I am glad this was one of the first job I had during my undergraduate college years. The reason I say that is because the work policy had "0" tolerance for arriving late to work. Any employee who is late to work more than two times a month was immediately laid off. This actually helped me understand the seriousness of punctuality and sincerity with work.

Supervision is the key
Associate Director - Programs (Former Employee), Houston, TXFebruary 27, 2015
Pros: excellent benefits
Cons: red tape, lack of interest in quality, many management staff are in place do to relationships, not abilities.
There are departments and positions at the University of Houston that can be a wonderful work experience. Sadly not every supervisor has has the skills, the personality or the ethics to be a quality leader.

Grad Student
Laboratory Instructor (Former Employee), Houston, TXFebruary 21, 2015
Pros: acquired many skills, wonderful co-workers, great mentors
Cons: work / life balance non existent, location, lacking in resources relative to other universities i have visited and attended
Employed as a graduate student, work / life balance was non-existent. I acquired many skills but at a very high cost. The experience was good, but would recommend other universities instead - did not care for the location or the atmosphere. The pay scale relative to the cost of living was not livable.

Recreation Center
Graduate Technical Experience (Former Employee), Houston, TXFebruary 10, 2015
The project works were very interesting, however this used to make me tired mentally. Therefore, the best place I found to release the stress was to have an awesome workout at the Campus Recreation Center.

The hardest part was to work on multiple things at the same time. To juggle between Computational Fluid Mechanics and Heat transfer, while learning about lots of new subjects, used to be a challenging part, however making me versatile to multiple work types.

It is a great place to study and work
Teaching Assistant (Current Employee), Houston, TXJanuary 26, 2015
I am pursuing my PhD degree in Math at University of Houston and work as teaching assistant. The school has very good PhD programs and the professors here are outstanding. One thing to improve, I think, is that the department of mathematics should let graduate students teach more classes than just recitation, which only require the teaching assistants to explain some homework.
