Hard to get into UTEP but pretty great once you're in the door. The issue is that no one ever leaves so it's hard to move around. They were great about comping time worked over 40 hours so that was nice.
Working here is be nice but some months you get no hours.
Auxiliary support (Current Employee) – El Paso, TX – February 22, 2017
The most enjoyable part of the job is working in different departments and meeting new people. The hardest part of the job is that there are very few hours scheduled to work and parking is very difficult to find. The cost of parking stickers sold to employees is not feasible for the number of hours worked. There is no opportunity to obtain regular part-time hours let alone a full time position.
I have been working at General Motors full-time (More than 3 years)

Student Research Intern (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – January 5, 2017
I was very young when I worked here, so I think it worked out better for me than for most. I felt very supported by the mentors and supervisors, but I think if I were trying to publish a lot of papers, or get many grants, I would struggle with motivation--the pace is very relaxed. While I appreciate work-life balance, I think perhaps you'd need to light a fire under your students.
