Executive Director (Former Employee) – Dean of Students Office – August 5, 2018
Everyone I worked around is always so kind and willing to help you in the best way they can. There always is something you could help with though, as there is much to be done here - so you'll never be bored. The hardest part was knowing that I was doing so much work for not a lot of money, but at the end of the day I gained a lot of experience that I can use later on.
Human Resources Assistant (Current Employee) – San Marcos, TX – August 2, 2018
I love my job at Texas State University. I could not have been hired to work in a better department and I will miss being employed their terribly. The staff and students are extremely nice and easy to talk too. everyone works as a team and the benefits and opportunities are endless. You'd be lucky to ever find a workplace like this.
Postdoctoral Researcher (Former Employee) – San Marcos, TX – July 16, 2018
Worked here for one year as a postdoc in the chemical engineering department. As a university, there were plenty of facilities to be able to complete research, although scheduling was difficult at times. Parking was also pretty horrible. It's a small community, but it's just south of Austin so there was plenty of things to enjoy if you took a short drive.
Student Assistant - Dean of Students (Current Employee) – San Marcos, TX – June 9, 2018
I enjoyed working there, my superiors were kind, friendly and always patient. I learned how to work in an office, and how to communicate with visitors that came to the office. The job was a great stepping stone for me as a student to learn about how things work in an office and how to work with and accommodate others.

Ethical and legal standards are secondary to Institutional imperatives when it comes to compensation and recognition. Seniority and teaching excellence means nothing relative to compensation and/or course releases, that are provided tenure track faculty.
You meet really great people there and can get great connections.
Supplemental Instructor Leader (Former Employee) – San Marcos, TX – May 31, 2018
Within my first year working at Texas State University as a SI, I have quite enjoyed it to an extent. My favorite thing I would have to say about the job is all the people you meet. For starters, I met my 3 best friends through this job and will be living with them soon. Not only did I meet my best friends, but I met other very great coworkers who have become great friends as well. Another thing I was not expecting is the connection I would have with my students. This past semester was my favorite. The class I worked with had many smart students who really wanted to learn as opposed as to just wanting to pass the class which was amazing to me. Not only was I their SI, but I also become their friend. A few of my students even made schedule changes for their next semester to take a class with a different professor because they found out I was either taking that same class or was possibly gonna be a SI for it, which I thought was super cool. Other connections involve professors. A professor I took a class with this past semester is probably gonna be a professor I will SI for this coming up semester given that I received an A in his class. Through him, he has given me security in my college endeavors with some great advice he's told me. Overall, this job has given me many advantages and great memories even though at times it can be stressful, but at the end of the day, I love helping others and seeing the spark in their eyes when they finally understand something, and this job has given me the opportunity to do just that.
