    I worked at University of Texas at El Paso part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I was a student employee so it was great for me to have a chance to have a job while studying. The compensation wasn't that great, however it's great if you have this as some extra cash and not your primary source of income.

    Cons

    Minimum wage and I found some training unnecessary. However, these might be good for younger people, I think I only found them tedious because I was older than the average peer leader.

    Pros

    Great team to work with and supervisors are very flexible with your schedule. Great to learn professional skills and a small feel of the real world dealing with so many customers.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for growth. Most of the employees have to leave once they graduate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more opportunities for graduating professionals.

    I worked at University of Texas at El Paso part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If 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.

    Cons

    If 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.

    I worked at University of Texas at El Paso part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    In 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!
