Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – May 14, 2018
Relatively low living cost. Graduate student apartment is super cheap and in good condition. Rent is rising quickly though. Also, it takes 2+ years in the waitlist to get in. Even outside the school apartment, overall rent is ok to live on the GRA salary. Excellent employee insurance benefits. Terrible parking space for graduate students, unless you wait in the waitlist for a year or so,
giving developer more opportunities to make their own decision

If a developer cannot make any decision and must follow what manager ask for, the developer will lost their interests soon. When a developer has a good idea, they really like to accomplish it.That is a good thing.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – April 25, 2018
This job entailed traveling around the rural parts of Austin to administer breathing tests to lower socio-economic status children. Samples were collected and brought back to the school for further analysis.
This was a nice, easy job that allowed me to study whenever I was done with my duties.

Student Building Attendant (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – April 17, 2018
The university is very accommodating to students. Hours are very flexible and intended to work around your class/studying schedule. The managers are very understanding that students' availability may change slightly throughout the semester.
I first worked for a department that believed in training Kindergarten through 12th Grade educators prepare their students for higher learning. It was very interesting to learn all the wonderful ways that they accomplished this using math and science. Next, I worked for a department that worked with community colleges all over the nation. Meeting different Community College President and Board Members of those college was very enlightening. Many of the ideas that came about such as finding out why students would quit and not go on to higher education, and how to help keep students in school was one of the main concerns. These people were inspiring and truly believed and loved what they were doing. These are people that are everyone should be like.
