By far and away, the absolute WORST human resources executive leadership probably on the entire planet as far as I am concerned. Nothing but typical standard issue HR scapegoating tactics if you do report anything to them. Human resources executive “leadership” at Texas A&M Kingsville is basically incompetent and spineless. There is no point in disclosing anything to them, nor do they protect your employee privacy and confidentiality. Instead what happens, literally not even a day after going to report something to “human resources leadership” here at Kingsville is a process of scapegoating and flipping everything back around in order to make it seem as though you are the “problem employee” for having reported anything to them in the first place. That was exactly what happened to me: I went to what I mistakenly thought was human resources “leadership” for assistance and guidance, only to be dismissed, brushed off altogether, and made to feel as though my concerns weren’t valid. There were complaints of: sexual harassment, file tampering, malicious gossip, deliberate targeting….. a whole laundry list of documented, and evidence-supported unethical actions against certain managers which I had provided and proved beyond any reasonable doubt. Yet Henry, the guy in charge of “human” resources here, did absolutely NOTHING about any of it. I was basically made to feel as though I were a “bad employee who shouldn’t ever have been hired in the first place…..” (direct quote by the way from this guy, Henry in human resources), and that if I didn’t like it, well then I should just quit altogether. Those were my only 2 options. Literally, word for word, that's what was said to me. So I personally feel as though the top executive leadership in the “human” resources department of Texas A&M Kingsville, Henry Burgos, really does not belong in a position deserving such influence over people’s careers. Quite honestly, it’s actually rather sickening (to me, at least) to know that the president of Texas A&M chooses not to do anything about this, and to retain such unqualified and unethical “human” resources executive leadership at their university? Such a shame for such a well-known and widely respected university system.

We are paying a $2,400+ debt for an untrained staff member’s mistake. My husband applied for this school, signed up for classes & a dorm. He decided to go somewhere cheaper & somewhere that actually had his major. He called to cancel everything & was falsely informed. He was told he would be dropped & that everything was finished & he was good to go. Of course when you tell someone they will be “dropped”, you obviously think you’ll be taken out of the school & will be “good to go”. Soon after we find out he has a debt of about $2,000! We have tried to fight it & they were not having it. They sent our case to a collection agency & now there is a $400+ fee in addition to the $2000. This school is the worst & will do anything to get your money! I myself, was a student for only a semester & was miserable. The staff sucks, not helpful at all (obviously) & the school does not try to reach out to their students in activities, etc. I lived on campus & it was not worth the money so I transferred back home in Houston. The dorms.. every night there is yelling, the smell of weed, etc. The cops patrol the streets but not very well. I do not recommend this school at all. The city around is non-existent & all there is to do is clubbing & drugs. Once you attend this school, you’ll know the regret & the waste of momey it is. Thanks for your time, I just don’t like how the school is winning in our case. We still have to pay this debt due to a dumb staff member who told us we were “good to go” & is too coward to not deny it. Thanks for the debt! (Probably some stupid student helper because that’s what this school runs on with no actual teacher to teach. Just student helpers with also no teacher supervision). This school also has very little majors & you will most likely need to transfer (like me) which means the basics you take here may not apply to your degree & is more expensive than a community college or a college that has the actual major you was. Anyone else notice the staff in the reviews just to gain some 5 stars? That’s how helpless this school is.

The executive human resources leadership for Texas A&M Kingsville is awful! They are the worst I've ever encountered in my entire career! Henry Burgos in particular is very rude and has zero social skills. That man is so incredibly rude, pompous, and arrogant and honestly I have zero idea how this university made the terrible mistake of putting him in charge of their human resources department? Of all things, human resources???? That just doesn't make any sense!
