Diesel Instructor (Former Employee) – Red Oak, TX – March 25, 2018
Unless you thoroughly enjoy wiping the color brown off of your nose every second of every day, this place is terrible to work at. The fastest way to get a major promotion is learning how to breathe through your nose, requires very little knowledge or intellect, if any at all, and you must suck at teaching in the field you are supposed to be an expert of and TSTC will not fire you, but rather give you a position that requires a lot of education and respected degrees necessary because they do not like to fire those that suck at their field. I wish I could tell you that this review is just some frustrated employee passed over, but that is not the case here at all. Students are denied training, learning, and testing over any equipment within the last decade because certain head-sheds were wasting the college's money on frivolous items never needed. It gets much worse and all I can advise is do not waste your time, unless the first sentence is your personal life motto and choice.
Teaching students how to learn, know, and present their craft
My manager/department was very understanding of life situations with children. Family is important within the entire campus. A lot of events are family oriented, was able to work and bring my kids with me.
Alot of family events, great PTO, great benefits
Unlucky to have unprofessional management temporarily
This is a good place for someone to work just out of college or that is looking to learn and grow.
There are not many opportunities for advancement but there are plenty of opportunities that allow their employees to attend college classes and help them grow. Whether it's for their current position, a future position, or personal enhancement.
The work/life balance is great. Mgmt believes that family comes first.
Medical/Dental coverage, time off during the holidays
Excellent work culture. Relationship with practically all employees and management is extremely friendly and cooperative. Very pleasant atmosphere. On campus recreation center with workout rooms and weights. Good cafeteria. Very good culinary arts program with working dining facilities and constantly changing menu.
Staff works well together. Workers would give you the shirt off their back. Students are a kick to work with. Students want to learn you will make a differences. Management committed to staff development.

i really enjoyed my time at TSTC. I wish I could return. TSTC has a good system for students who are not the traditional student. tstc has tapped into the community needs and resources and has formulated it inside the educational system.

TSTC is trying to change its culture and operating structure. Many of the expectations are unrealistic. People in executive positions make poor decisions and don't realize the trickle down effect their decisions have on faculty.
The upper management and lower managment and over all office
Staff (Former Employee) – Waco, TX – July 17, 2017
Awful place to work unless you find a dept that has a professional ethical management. You have campuses that supervises other campuses and therefore workflow is not managed correctly. Lower mgmt. get by with longer lunches, working on outside interests, siding with co-workers. Co workers can be rude to students and get by with it and that should not be tolerated as that is not what TSTC stands for.
Great Health, Sick and Vac Retire Pkg- if you can last.

I loved this job. If the school could keep the politics out of the way that they deal with the students, this place would be THE premier technical training facility in the US. Learn to let your people be who they are and stop micro managing. Beleive in the strength of your faculty.
