Productive and team oriented environment with many opportunities to grow personally and professionally.
Graduate Assistant & Food Demo Coach (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXJune 30, 2014
Pros: networking, free seminars/conferences, free meals, made my own schedule
Cons: healtcare benefits, 19 hours maximum
As a Graduate Assistant and Food Demo Coach at The University of Texas at San Antonio, I had the opportunity to work directly with my supervisors and advisors. They provided one-on-one training in their field of expertise and helped me develop the necessary skills to work independently and effectively in the areas of Nutrition, Research and Education – more... in Culinary Arts. Working with other graduate and doctoral students was motivational and inspiring. I would say that the hardest part of the job was the fact that it was only temporary (available as a current enrolled student) - only a few hours per week and I was interested in working more hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was the diversity amongst my co-workers and peers and learning from experienced and well-qualified professionals in the field of Research in Health, Kinesiology and Nutrition. – less

Library Research Assistant Work Study (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXApril 29, 2014
Pros: i had a private workspace, free time to study
This job was a learning experience because I was working in a University Library in an academic environment.

I was taught to assist many different personnel doing a variety of tasks, everything from preparing historical projects and brochures, to creating documents advertising parts of the movie collection.

In – more... the Research Dept the staff was preparing presentations for entering graduate students, so I helped with the preparations for these presentations with assembling the suitcases containing snacks, give-away items such as pens, pencils, thumb-drives, brochures, and library maps, etc.

I also communicated with library staff through the email system. – less

Great place
Bookkeeper (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXOctober 25, 2013
Pros: the pay, the hours, the opportunities to make up for lost time.
Cons: sometimes had to work more than 40 hours a week.
I enjoyed working with college students on a daily basis. I learned a lot about rental agreements, rent acceleration, debt collections, financial aid and helping students to stay to finish their educational goals. My co-workers were great, family oriented and fun. The hardest part were the deadlines to "move" students in and out on the computer systems. – more... The most enjoyable part was the friendships of colleagues and the salary. – less

Flexible Schedule, Not Enough Training
Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Current Employee), San Antonio, TXJuly 11, 2013
I love the San Antonio location. There are many things to do in the area.
I came to this job thinking I would be trained in certain areas of my field of study and have not felt I have received adequate training to consider myself experienced in this field.
Pro: The hours of a postdoc are very flexible and similar to a graduate student.
Con: ...similar – more... to a graduate student. – less
