    Current Employee - Student Technician in Denton, TX

    I have been working at University of North Texas part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work schedules tend to be very flexible for students, making it possible to balance work and classes. Great job skills and troubleshooting abilities learned that are useful, as well as ability to work alone or in groups.

    Cons

    Poor department management leaves a lot to be desired. The coordinator rarely offers much assistance to stumped technicians and the manager tends to create distractions to avoid his actual duties, setting a poor example for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up and organize the upper ranks. It isn't fair to the students when they begin having to clean up the mess management creates by not performing their duties.
