Chemistry Lab Assistant

May - August 2018 • California, PA

What I liked

It was a job within my department that gained me knowledge and experience with the various instruments used in lab, as well as insight as to how labs are supposed to be run. It was also kind of a continuation of the same job I had in the spring semester so there wasn't really a learning curve.

What I wish was different

Other than not having control of the air-conditioning without having to call maintenance it was fine.

Advice

You will have to wear pants while working, so it is advisable that you invest in a few pair of more breathable pants if working over the summer If you get hot easy, as the building is old and the a/c isn't that great.
