Research Scholar (Current Employee) – College Station, TX – October 15, 2018
Research about a new model for a mixture of two fluids with my host professor. Learned to use a software ANSYS FLUENT for our numerical calculation. All the staffs are nice and helpful for me to get accustomed to the new place.
BUSINESS ANALYST COORDINATOR (Current Employee) – Commerce, TX – October 10, 2018
Fun place to work, energetic people, easy and relaxing atmosphere, able to earn vacation hours depending on your tenure. Went thru a serious illness and was not ever made to feel guilty due to my time off.
Texas A&M is the most organized and loyal university
Admissions Counselor / Athletic Assistant (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – October 8, 2018
A typical day at work was assisting prospective students with the admissions application and answering any questions for which the prospective student or their parents had regarding the admissions process. I worked with the Admissions Office by promoting the university by conducting presentations, leading campus tours, scheduling and meeting with prospective students and their parents along with follow-up with phone calls and emails. I also helped coordinate registration and activities for the admissions office and the Corp of Cadets. I also assisted the Athletic Department with coordinating football clinics and golf tournaments.
Being welcomed into the A&M family and representing the school and its traditions.
I wish I would have been able to stay long enough to work full-time.
Peer leader for Physics 218 (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – October 3, 2018
I was a physics peer leader at A&M (if you get a chance to be, DO IT!) It is a ton of fun and I absolutely loved it. I also feel like because I did it I now know my physics (218) SO much better than I did after I'd only taken the class.
Learn phyiscs better, so fun, increases problem solving skills, looks good on resume, on campus
Lead Institutional Student Worker (Current Employee) – 6300 Ocean Drive – October 3, 2018
Worked with a team of other students. Very comfortable feel and easy work environment. Hours are flexible, and school always comes first. You have the ability to possibly work on homework while working.
Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Kingsville, TX – October 2, 2018
I had friends that had a better experience in other departments, but mine was atrocious. Poor management, poor pay, no advancement, and constantly threatened my position for the slightest infraction. Initiative was NOT encouraged, and differences of opinion or suggestions for workplace improvement were reprimanded. I learned early on to be a yes-man, and do only enough to get by to save my sanity.
Loved working for the Computing Services Center at Texas A&M
Systems Analyst II (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – September 26, 2018
As an Aggie, there will likely never be a better place to work than Texas A&M. I worked there as a student and then full time as a systems analyst. The best part of working at Texas A&M was the other staff members. The second best was being able to attend conferences and other training on a regular basis. It was a win-win situation for the employee and TAMU. Management was supportive and provided good direction.
Great job to earn experience and to network, but no long-term advancement within reach.
Employee (Current Employee) – College Station, TX – September 20, 2018
Texas A&M Athletics is a premiere department to be employed by within the university, but a lot of the senior staff members turn over relatively fast. With new leadership every few years the department lacks a commitment to employees, long-term and short-term. Morale is relatively low among staff, as most are overworked and underpaid.
