    Fantastic opportunity to teach as an undergraduate.

    Lab Assistant (Former Employee) Arlington, TX

    ProsI really enjoyed the opportunity and challenge of being in charge of a lab for a junior level course. It was a good challenge for me as a student.

    ConsThere were some administrative tasks that were required that weren't mentioned until too late into the semester. Also, the pay for one TA was split between me and the other TA. We weren't informed this was going to be the case until just before the job started.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would suggest searching out more undergraduate seniors to act as lab teaching assistants. It gives the seniors a deeper grasp of the concepts they were taught earlier, and gives the students in the class someone who they can connect with a bit more.

    Great Experience in a Diverse Environment!

    Resident Assistant (Current Employee) Arlington, TX

    ProsThe diversity is the biggest exposure! You can meet and work with people from over a 100 countries of the world. The compensation is good enough for my job. The culture of promoting overall development is the driving factor.

    ConsThe administration can be slow at times. Also, the high intake of students can be overwhelming to find a jobs, because of the intense competition associated with it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust because the goal is to bring UTA to top tier universities level, the quality of education should not be tampered. That would happen if admissions are provided for lesser quality candidates. A proper planning should be made before such things take place, such as increasing the housing resources, increasing number of courses offered and no. of seats in each course, more research options and so on.

    I had the opportunity to meet great people, and further my experience during my time as a student.

    Student Worker (Current Employee) Arlington, TX

    ProsThe people I had a chance to work with are very supportive and flexible. The university is supportive of its student employees. Many of the student employees I have worked with have found jobs immediately after graduation.

    ConsThere are not many cons regarding working at UT Arlington, aside from the response time from the administration. However, being a large school, it is expected.

    Contract great, UTA management lackluster.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsThe contract company I work for is friendly and supportive. The daily work I complete is challenging and interesting. The benefits are ample and continued education is supported.

    ConsThe management is incredibly slack. Human resource services are slow and unresponsive. I received a copy of my offer letter one week after signing on and while my benefits had to be enrolled in within a one month period no one provided any paperwork on it. There has been a complete lack of assistance for all new hires based on what I have seen and experienced.

    Very nice people/staff and professors, but lack of quality in student intake and maybe as a result, the coursework.

    Graduate Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) Arlington, TX

    ProsVery friendly professors and staff.
    Willingness to help you out at any cost.
    Great department chairperson.
    Easy coursework.
    Easy 4.0

    ConsQuality and rank is low.
    Simply being nice doesn't help the students in the real sense.
    UTA are finding themselves slip down the ranks and one must seriously weight options before they take UTA.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to hire more quality, young, tenure-track faculty.
    Increase the standards of intake.
