    I worked at West Texas A&M University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you're a student it's really convenient to walk or short drive to work. Everyone is really friendly and helpful when needed. They care about students and even work around their class schedules very well. You could even work for an hour and come back due to class.

    Cons

    Opportunities to work are a little low. However since the campus is currently growing fast there are added job opportunities often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep caring about students as you already do and continue to work around class schedules. It's a great place to work!

    I worked at West Texas A&M University as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    It definitely paid well, even for a student worker. Very understanding faculty and staff. Some red tape, but not as much as other places.

    Cons

    I can't think of many cons. It was a great place to work. I guess one downside was that my position was grant-funded, so it ended before even a year was up. But still a great place.
