A lot of the job consists of making solutions, so be comfortable with dilutions and molarity calculations. There is also a lot of cleaning and making sure the lab is tidy and each bench has the necessary supplies. You will also have to supervise and teach students how to use certain pieces of equipment and will be asked questions about procedures and calculations. There is also usually weekly or biweekly grading of pre-lab assignments, a loose key provided.
