    I worked at University of North Texas part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The affiliation with UNT brought in some good consultants. Very nice facility. State of the art surveillance system. Clean. Supervisory staff was kind and tried to be helpful.

    Cons

    Staff retention was a problem. New staff were undertrained and in this business, without proper training, the job can be quite difficult. Add to that a mediocre hourly wage and no full time positions with benefits and it was pretty much guaranteed if staff were not students studying ABA, they were not destined to remain long. Programming for clients was poor due to lack of time and busy college students providing those services. Poor management caused many problems with staff satisfaction. Without being in the field, opportunities for advancement were non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder at retaining staff. Try to pay a bit more.

    I have been working at University of North Texas full-time

    Pros

    Students are awesome to work with!

    Cons

    Compensation is poor and doesn't kick in until 2-3 months after starting employment. Health Insurance was abysmal. Housing Department is chaotically disorganized with no solid management structure (one job is broken up among 3-4 people in management, but lower positions are majorly understaffed).

    Advice to Management

    Solidify organizational chart for departments

    I worked at University of North Texas full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers were amazingly nice. The work, while stressful, was really fun and rewarding. Great benefits!

    Cons

    This job requires an enormous commitment, including lots of night and weekends. Training was incredibly lacking, and took months to complete because of it. Leadership, while nice, is pretty unprofessional.

    I worked at University of North Texas full-time

    Pros

    very little - don't believe any hype you get during the recruitment process - this place is ghastly

    Cons

    overpaid and over confident administrators who have no clue how to do things right - all they do is blame staff for their screw-ups, hardly paid anything for the great amount of hard work that you're asked to perform so what's the point?

    Advice to Management

    your time to be fired for incompetence is coming near

    Pros

    nice co-workers but bad management
    working for my university

    Cons

    the business support services management is awful. I feel really sorry for the employees here. upper management backstabs them, talks bad about them, disrespects them, calls them names behind their backs (like calls them stupid or morons or dumb government workers), makes fun of them in public, its horrible

    Advice to Management

    just because people need a job does not give you the right to treat them like slaves
