the experience was amazing.
Teaching assistant (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 5, 2018
The work environment was spectacular. I learnt a lot about the things that were to be done while conducting experiments as well as assisting students. The hardest part of the job however was to manage time between the students who need my assistance and to also conduct the experiments for my own thesis. The most enjoyable part of the job was to learn new things and techniques related to the field of my major.

"Hello, IT? Have you tried turning it off and on again?"
User Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 31, 2018
A typical day was getting an email or a phone call regarding a computer not starting, monitor not working, or Outlook not working. Or "my computer is going really slow." There was a lot of troubleshooting, but mostly trying to explain to end users that they can't expect computer systems to run their Pandora app, Outlook, and 10 excel spreadsheet. I learned how to work with users, assess their needs, and present manageable goals/expectations. The hardest part was watching the same users do everything I told them not to.
Pros
Relatively easy work
Cons
College Campus, parking

Chill place to work
Postal Office Clerk (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 31, 2018
Worked in printing services as a work-study student. It was a repetitive job with good pay for being otherwise entry level and the people were nice. I heard that work culture depends a lot on what department you end up in. I'd recommend trying printing services if you can.

Calhoun Lofts Desk Assistant (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 27, 2018
I wish the pay would've been better and my manager would've been a lot more professional. I would only recommend working here as a work-study student but once you graduate it will not suffice.
