    Amazing student job! I loved my time at Reed Arena!

    Former Employee - Night Manager
    Former Employee - Night Manager

    I worked at Texas A&M part-time

    Pros

    One of the best things about Reed Arena is how great the upper management is and how hard the supporting staff works. The staff is very team oriented and inviting to new employees. As a student I had sometimes had to work late hours but most of the time there was ample time to study for my classes.

    Cons

    Occasionally I had to work quite often depending on how many events there were that week. Some events run longer than others and will often have to work very late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing! I loved my time at Reed Arena!

    I have been working at Texas A&M

    Pros

    general job security
    excellent holiday and vacation policy
    wonderful campus environment
    good campus libraries accessible by staff

    Cons

    low pay relative to the corporate world
    no tuition remission
    gym on campus is expensive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more to train non-faculty staff members. It's a small town with old-fashioned values, but try not to engage in nepotism when hiring, firing, and failing to discipline people.
