    Residential Life and Housing student employee,

    Residential Life and Housing Student Worker (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsI met more students on a personal level and established more friendships than in my classes.

    ConsMinimum wage. The most highly skilled individuals are classified as unskilled labor. This is simply to say that the University gets premium quality individuals, both intellectually and culturally, while paying them minimum wage. No flexibility regrinds schedule.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue your student workers as the competent and capable individuals they are.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Housing Department is Horrible

    Customer Service Representative II (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsThe student workers are nice.

    ConsThere is a divide between Customer Service Reps and RLCs, and the upper management doesn't care about employees. You have to pay to park. If you are hourly, there is not overtime; just comp time. I will never work for U of Houston again. Everything about that campus is disorganized.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop being jerks and appreciate your employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Researcher 4

    Researcher IV (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsThe job is very flexible and relaxing. There was very little job-related stress.

    ConsThere was no stress because there wasn't any urgent work to be done. The job overall was boring because there never was any urgency to complete tasks. The benefits are well below competitive and not what I expected from a state employer.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay better and offer better benefits.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    So much red tape!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsFlexible schedules and the sense of knowing that your work will help the outcome of a students success!

    ConsSo many lazy and incompetent people working just showing up to collect a paycheck. They don't care about the students. They keep raising tuition yet they keep cutting budgets.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFIRE THE LAZY EMPLOYEES and TRAIN the ones that want to work and make a difference!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
