Current Employee - Residential Life and Housing Student Worker in Houston, TX
Current Employee - Residential Life and Housing Student Worker in Houston, TX

I have been working at University of Houston full-time (less than an year)

Pros

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

Cons

Minimum 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 ManagementAdvice

Value your student workers as the competent and capable individuals they are.

    I have been working at University of Houston full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, friendly environment, and an aesthetically pleasing campus are the main highlights of UH.

    Cons

    Location in the city, although central, is not the safest albeit not the most dangerous. Nobody should be alone at night on campus or the apartment complexes within close proximity to campus. Antiquated promotion system, inconsistent leadership at the top with visions that different from those actually implementing plans. Virtually no school pride, although it is better than in the 80's and 90's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    University leadership has a vision, but not necessarily the right one for the school. Attaining Tier One status is a great goal, but there is so much other issues that must be addressed first. Most offices are understaffed for the number of students at the university. Although some process are automated, there are no procedures for issues that fall outside the "rules" of the system.

    I worked at University of Houston full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This is a very nice campus atmosphere and a lot of very nice people in the University. Close to Downtown Houston. Good if you are working at the main campus. You have the ability to use some of the facilities since you will be a staff member. The university setting is a challenging place to work since you will always be encountering people of high intelligence who will inspire and challenge you.

    Cons

    Con if you are working at main campus is the traffic getting there... It's in Houston - 4th largest city in US. Anyhow, Getting around campus might be a con if you have to go to different buildings during the day. It's been a long time since I worked there and can't say too much negative about the University of Houston.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training employees on new state regulations and university rules should be done at least once a year.
