Research and Experimental Development
Chemical Research and Experimental Development (Former Employee), Peoria, ILJuly 14, 2014
Pros: the amount of tools and knowledge obtained are endless
Cons: limited amount of reactants
The tools and knowledge that I took away from this experience not only enhanced my chemical understanding, but made me a better chemist all together. The doctor that I was working for showed me methods of analysis that I never knew existed. The man is an absolute genius. The things I learned from him are limitless and will forever continue to shape – more... me into a more rounded chemist.

The hardest part of my job was designing and performing the most efficient purification method possible. Removal of any unwanted reactant and solvent required great patience and instrumental control. The most enjoyable part was everything. There was not one task or obstacle that I did not enjoy. Everything that I completed further enhanced my skills as a chemist. – less

Adjunct teaching position (Former Employee), Peoria, ILDecember 25, 2013
I love teaching but you can't live on the salaries. Universities won't hire you full-time because as they told me then they'd have to increase my salary and give me health insurance.

Productive and Hard Working
Project Member (Former Employee), Peoria, ILJuly 2, 2013
Pros: got experience, learned how to troubleshoot, and how to work with a group
Cons: communication was poor at times, project kept getting restructured, and equipment was not readily available
This was a senior project for our program of study. In a typical week we would work on the project for about 2 or 3 days. There was just two of us working on the project. Communication was a problem. Sometimes information was not properly conveyed so parts of the project got delayed.

Productive and fun environment!
Baking and Catering Intern (Former Employee), Peoria, ILMay 31, 2013
Daily, I was in charge of creating baked goods for dormitory menus and catered events. I learned more about multitasking and food presentation. I had good relationships with members of management and my superiors. My co-workers and I had an excellent and friendly relationship. This relationship allowed for us to be quite productive while always enjoying – more... ourselves at work. The hardest part of the job was managing waking up so early in the morning while still playing college softball and managing school work. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to get kitchen experience with people I enjoyed getting to know. – less

Very Bad environment

The Civil Engineering department has a very very bad environment. The chair is always pushing faculty to fail and leave. More than 30 faculty joined the Civil Engineering department and left within almost one year and half.
Do not join or even apply to this position
