Resident Assistant at Lipscomb Hall (Former Employee) – Arlington, TX – July 6, 2018
UT Arlington is such a diverse place. There are people from all over the world there that help everyone learn. The RD of Lipscomb Hall is very good at addressing our diverse community. The hardest part of the RA Job is being on call during a busy school week. It is most enjoyable when residents and RAs are not as busy and hang out in the community common areas.

I was a graduate student and working with Benito Huerta was humbling. I was able to mature and grow. Being an artist is very hard and finding different avenues to continue the knowledge and growth in that field has to be pursued in many different ways. I was able to help students and in turn they actually helped me in return. Overall great experience.
IT Specialist (Current Employee) – Arlington, TX – June 8, 2018
I had a few jobs at UTA, the team is very helpful and considerate of obligations in terms of emergencies or off time. It tries to fit your time schedule that does not conflict with any other priorities that you may have. Overall, it is a great place to work, there is much room for advancement or trying out other departments to fit your qualifications A typical day at work is responding to emails, answering phone calls and making sure that every client has a satisfying experience. The managers of my department were amazing! They made sure that you were taken care of and tried to fit your desire work schedule. The hardest part is testing out things that you are not familiar with such as new programs.
Working for UTA but not apart of the actual faculty, working for UTA as a student, is a little harder because you want to make a lasting impact on everyone but you dont get paid well enough in order to keep doing what you are doing there.
No overtime required, but if you wanted they would allow you build up time. Great staff! Every easy going and a great work culture. The management and supervisors are amazing and always willing to help in anyway
Research Coach (Former Employee) – Arlington, TX – May 14, 2018
The research coach position is highly recommended for students who need supplemental income while working through their undergraduate or graduate studies. It has been a wonderful experience to work for the university as they have provided me with a fundamental skillset for future employment. The staff is more than willing to provide assistance with your needs as an employee and they make sure that you succeed.
Occasional free treats, and lunches from library events, study while working, very flexible schedule, comfortable work environment, friendly co-workers.
Typically being an admin assistant im used to being in charge of a lot of tasks. But being front desk for my particular office has caused a lot of anxiety. Working with college kids is very stressful. They pay a lot of money and want there classes. I enjoy the relationships that i have made but i am going to enjoy not working here.
Occasional free lunches
Angry students dont know how to channel there anger the right way, Being the front desk i got yelled at often
If you're enrolled as a graduate student here, this is a wonderful place to be a teaching assistant. The work cultural nicely balances your own education load with the teaching responsibilities and there is plenty of office space to get both jobs done.
I taught economics classes as GTA in the early 1990s. My teaching was a fellowship requirement that allowed me to gain exposure to what would later become my life's major work activity. College-level teaching.
