I worked at Texas A & M University - Central Texas part-time (More than a year)
The University offers lots to its employees (mostly to full time employees). Hosts lots of events to encourage interaction and motivation among employees.
I had a student worker position that couldn't move up into a full time position.
Advice to Management
I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Texas A & M University - Central Texas (Killeen, TX) in October 2014.
When you become a graduate student and desire a position as a graduate assistant, speak directly with your professor or the department chair and ask if you meet the requirements and if they have the funding. I spoke to my professor and she made me aware of when the funding was available and they needed an assistant. I then had to officially apply for the position, and had a "mini" interview by the professor that made me aware that the position was open. After she discussed it with the department chair, they officially offered me the position. The key to getting a grad assistant position at A&M is looking at the job board but asking around department to department trying to see if there's an opening or going to be an opening soon. The application was very basic and the interview was even easier. After obtaining the job, you must continue to meet all the requirements each semester.
