-Definitely a sink or swim experience, but good -Lots of opportunities to supplement classwork with additional activities, including employment -Classwork was difficult, but fair and, ultimately, very educational; expect a heavy workload
A solid place to work that balances the relatively low salaries with excellent benefits and a laid back work culture. Like any job there are difficult personalities to work with, but overall the coworkers are great.

The day is set at your own pace, but there is a lot of responsibility to make sure that you get everything done by arbitrary deadlines. Be able to prioritize, multitask, and say "no" sometimes, and you'll survive.

Great Atmosphere. Great Staff. Great System. What I was most impressed with is how knowledgeable and attentive they are. Its a BIG campus with THOUSANDS of employees but they shrink it down and simplify so masterfully. They will not lose you. You have help and support every step of the way.
Hired through the University of Texas UTemps, as an admin assisting on several long-term assignments, I found the University setting to be very enjoyable and balanced. The work assignments were non-stressful, in comparison to the typical corporate work environment, and coworkers were friendly and team-oriented.
Nice campus and there are many cultural activities and sporting events to attend.
Quite a walk, from the parking provided for temps, to the campus. The university buses run regularly, but its take a little longer to get from the parking lot to your respective building.

You may or may not receive a 2% pay increase annually. Each department is different. There is little opportunity for advancement within a department. Moving from one department to another is the only way to obtain a new position and increase your salary.
