    I have been working at Lone Star College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Team environment even though we are spread across 6 major College Campuses and various other satellite locations. We are given autonomy in our fields of expertise and allowed to cross train with others to better our own skill sets.

    Cons

    Strenuous and extremely demanding schedules at times, not really a con but if I have to list one it can be very stressful.

    Advice to Management

    I haven't had any problems with management and I often interact with Sr Managers, Directors, Vice Chancellors and The Chancellor's Office directly.

    I have been working at Lone Star College (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can study during your downtime

    Cons

    AS a student worker, you can only work for a maximum of 19 hours a week, so that your focus is on school. this could be good or bad depending on your situation.

    Application are always open at LSC. So even if you apply, you may not hear for months until a spot is available.

    My advice: first Try to get a job as workstudy, instead of a student assistant. Because workstudy is paid by the government, and student workers are paid by LSC. So if theres a budget cut you could get fired or if that departement doesnt have money to keep you you could get moved to another department. Then theyll hire workstudy, since their pay doesnt come out of LSC budget
