    Great place to work for students.

    Systems Administrator (Former Employee) El Paso, TX

    ProsIf you are student at UTEP and work for the university it is possible you may have your own office and desktop computer. This makes studying and doing homework on campus very conveinant. There are other perks to working for the University liek having after hours buidling access and a set of keys. This comes in handy for those late night projects you have been working on all semester.

    ConsIf you work for the university you may start to feel like you live on Campus. That's just life though if your a student. Another downside to student employment is that there are no benefits and the pay is really low.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    The best job while attending full-time graduate school

    Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) El Paso, TX

    ProsThe job is on campus, which makes it really easy to work and take classes without the need of driving. Also, jobs inside UTEP are respectful of their student's class schedule.

    ConsThe pay is not competitive with other off-campus options. Also, really few choices to eat healthy around campus, so you should bring your own lunch.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIn order to get or find a job inside campus, is usually by referral. And many capable students are left outside of the 'circle'. Maybe a UTEP only career fair would be a good idea!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great for Student Work

    Resident Assistant (Current Employee) El Paso, TX

    ProsAs a resident assistant, you get free dorm, $150/semester for food, $20/semester for laundry, and &200/month! It's a pretty sweet deal if you were living on campus anyway as rent starts at $600/month. But what makes the job amazing is the fun and friendly staff who are always understanding of your school schedule and support you for far longer than your employment lasts.

    ConsThat one call at 4AM about a drunk resident that you will have to take.

    If you weren't living on campus to begin with, you could be making more money elsewhere. This isn't a job that pays for your 6GB phone bill, car insurance, going out to eat money, and groceries

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the awesome work and thanks for keeping the employee atmosphere so positive!

    Great work while attending school full time.

    ACES Associate (Former Employee) El Paso, TX

    ProsArranging your hours based on your class schedule is very flexible. I learned to be comfortable working with others and constantly contributing to team discussions. I was exposed to many projects and events hosted by the College of Engineering which were fun most of the time.

    ConsSometimes you tend to work over your scheduled hours and when dealt a task, it is usually unclear what exactly needs to be done. Communication can be lacking at times when asking coworkers for input.

    ProsNetworking, Research, Schedule Flexibility; Depending on the professors you are assigned to work for, you can practice/test some university (business in my case) knowledge you have learned so far.
