Field Surveyor (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – July 14, 2015
I learned how to troubleshoot hardware problems in over 150 classrooms around campus. A typical day's work involved responding to issues from various locations, dispatching, and communicating with coworkers about issues in the field. The hardest part of the job was waking up before 6AM during the school year.
If you get in the right place, it is easy to make a large university feel like a small family. Excellent research labs and resources. Working at a public university has its pros and cons but that is to be expected, especially in Texas.

One the best places to live in USA is Texas and one of the best places to work in Texas is the University of Texas System. Typical day starts with getting to your desk and reviewing what you did the previous day. You get work instructions whether from a person with Master degree or a PhD. Your work is scientific and you help those in need of medical treatment and you will be proud of yourself to do so. If you are directly hired by the system but not a contractor or research grant employee, you don't want to lose your job easily as it is very secured.The most enjoyable part of the job is when you have done something that has helped a person in need of medication no matter what you did.
