Big picture: UNT is great; Departmentally: Some UNT departments suffer lack of leadership

Coordinator (Current Employee)
Denton, TX

I have been working at University of North Texas full-time for more than 10 years

ProsDepending on the department in which you work, it can be extremely rewarding to be in a position to help others advance to the next level. It is diverse and, for the most part, everyone seems to embrace the diversity. There are endless opportunities to be cuturally enriched.

ConsThere are individuals who are brought into leadership positions who have no business being there. Human Resources doesn't really ever seem to want to assist employees when they are having a rough time with management. Sometimes it is difficult to work for an organization that doesn't want to focus on what the school has to offer that's exceptional. Instead, it feels as if the only push is to reach the tier 1 status.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people, the worker bees, to find out what is really going on in departments across campus.

Great people, flexible scheduling, perfect place for students to work.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at University of North Texas part-time

ProsThe people are very friendly and the work loads aren't extensive for students. It allows you to focus on your classes while maintaining a good job.

ConsIt's hard to get 30-40 hours a week if you are working part-time, normally they try to keep your schedule at 25 hours a week. This is fine for most people but if you're struggling to pay rent or classes you may need a full time position, which they have available to students.

I have had an excellent learning experience at UNT.

Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee)
Denton, TX

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

ProsMy professor Dr. Yan Wan is the best thing that happened to me. The department of Electrical Engineering at University Of North Texas is very skilled, innovative, energetic and helpful. I have had a great time learning and growing as a person both personally and professionally. I think it is the best career base I have formed and I am ready to step into industry now.

ConsI think the university needs to look into the way students are being payed.

A great place to build experience and skills, but low pay and little flexibility.

IT Specialist IV (Current Employee)
Denton, TX

I have been working at University of North Texas full-time for more than 5 years

ProsState employees have good health benefits and retirement savings. In addition, education is typically encouraged for staff. Tuition scholarships are available and training is encouraged.

ConsThe leave policies and working schedule are not flexible. Pay is much lower than in the private sector. Administrators are typically out of touch with staff concerns.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider spending less funding on print media and advertising campaigns and offer competitive salaries and upward mobility for staff to encourage growth overall.

Great experience for the next step...

Graduate Student Teaching Assistant (Current Employee)
Denton, TX

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

ProsGaining invaluable experience for when I become a professor myself, flexible schedule--can work in the office or from home, low stress environment

ConsIt's not uncommon for a professor to basically dump his/her entire workload on you, leaving you to wonder what exactly they are being paid to do.

Advice to Senior ManagementEnsure the professor are still involved in their classes and connecting with their students. There are some things that are asked of TAs that are not appropriate. Some jobs should be completed by the professor.
