    I have been working at Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board full-time for less than a year


    There are many opportunities for growth and the salary is competitive with other state agencies as well as private sector jobs. There are several events that involve everyone and keeps things fresh and fun. It's not always work! work! work! In addition, we don't work downtown with all of the chaos and congestion so that is a definite plus!


    Our agency is in Austin, and anyone who lives/works here knows that traffic can make or break your day. Also, we seem to be a tad behind on the technology side, however we are getting up there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if the higher ups would get away from their busy schedules and peek in here and there to visit the rest of the staff. It would truly make a difference.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

    Interview Details

    "Supervisor" was seriously mentally ill. Called in from out of town for an interview to take place two days later. Interview lasted about an hour with a committee and superficial obvious questions. Was called back for a 2nd interview FOUR DAYS LATER! And a one day notice...hundreds of miles away, which they clearly knew. "Supervisor" could not attend the first interview and wanted to meet me. Went back with the same committee plus one and "supervisor." SAME QUESTIONS! "Supervisor" grandstanded, was incoherent, rambled, couldn't follow a question. It was OVERTLY clear that this was no place to work. But I had been looking for several months. The ONE and ONLY reason I stepped in to this pile was because I was currently unemployed and needed to get to work.

    Interview Questions
    • The BIG-TITLED person asking me if I had known one of his/her personal friends.   Answer Question
    • How long will you be here, in Austin? Where are you staying?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was none. They dishonestly advertised a salary range. "Supervisor" said, "It would not be fair if I paid you more than other new hires." "Fair'! Isn't that a word that children use. THECB allows for a flexible daily work hours. "Supervisor" did not allow flexibility and demanded that hours coincide with his/hers.
