Nutrition Education Associate (Former Employee) – San Benito, TX – October 2, 2018
This company is very rewarding in the way that you are helping others better their life styles. I worked directly with children and improving their eating habits, I went home feeling great about myself knowing I am educating many children for their future.
Too much wear and tear on vehicles no form of insurance to help you with repairs or company vehicles
interaction with people and family environemt in the workplace with coworkers.
Animal Damage Control Technician (Former Employee) – Kerrville, TX 78028 – August 20, 2018
This was my dream job. I had to leave only because of illness in the family demanded it. Great company with awesome benefits. The only and biggest complaint was the lack of training on the computer software I was required to use daily. The supervisor himself was not proficient, making it difficult for a new employee to learn the basics of their new job function.
The requirements of the job are not hard but the pay isn't worth it. Employees are underappreciated and underpaid. The employee pool is very stagnant and the management is poor. The benefits are a major plus, full medical, dental, vision, life, and PTO accrual.
Even though I was an intern, I got to meet many researchers and learn a lot about agronomy. The environment is laid back and fun. A typical day was if I wasn't doing the landscaping, I was learning about different ants, spiders, peanuts, and different phosphorus levels affecting land.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – May 7, 2018
Fantastic boss, managment, and learning opportunities. This job took me all over the state for various research purposes I never knew from one day to the next what I would be doing or where. I learned more than I could ever put into words and had a plethora of work opportunites that I still value to this day. The hours could often be long but the coworkers and management were great and encouraging to learn as we worked.
Accounting Assistant I (Former Employee) – Uvalde, TX – April 9, 2018
Fast paced, many interruptions. Account reconciliations, re-allocation of pro-card expenses, issued Purchase Orders, assist counties with account information or Contract and Grants, accounts payable, backup receptionist, assisted District Manager with Budget as needed throughout the month, assisted with upcoming meeting setup.
Learned several different types of software and operating system, learned to run the Postermaker machine and the many steps an accounts payable goes through before it is finally paid.
Hardest part of the job was not having requested information available to assist County Extension with questions regarding their Contracts and Grants.
Very enjoyable part of the job was listening to the District Manager's stories about her childhood during break time.
Great co-workers, very good pay, very diversified culture, several paid holidays, accrued annual leave, state retirement and insurance.
Very hard to assist some of the County personnel, lack of information for their Contract or Grant, considerable time was spent on obtaining information, many times their request was not how the Contract or Grant was set up initially by them.
Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee) – Edinburg, TX – December 19, 2017
The tasks assigned were done in an efficient and effective manner. I was given the opportunity to restructure the filing management of county and state projects. The previous method was not efficient and effective for more than 12 projects. The immediate supervisor was the best anyone could ask for, however the top management did not have an overall grip on the ongoing issues in the office. Restricted to not being able to participate in most of the events.
Learned a great deal of information about the programs
Better Living for Texans Assistant (Former Employee) – Denton, TX – August 18, 2017
Never boring. Everyday was a new adventure. Really professional environment. Great benefits and really flexible, I only left because I was presented with an opportunity to move to another state, but if it weren't for those circumstances, I would still be there.
I truly enjoyed my time there. Little top heavy with managers but everyone works very hard for the betterment of the community. If you like a solid place with a routine then this is a great place for you.
Fun place to work where you can make a difference in a community!
County Extension Agent (Former Employee) – Corsicana, Texas – July 24, 2017
You are managing programming for identified community needs. I learned to use my multi-tasking skills and enjoyed every moment of it. The job is very fun, but you can work many evenings. I had fun inspiring and teaching youth and adults, but hard to balance living in another town away from my family.
Positive place to make a difference
Hard to balance with a family - many nights and weekends thru the summer.
