Worked in a research lab by myself so days were quiet but allowed me to get a lot of work done. I had to be self motivating which occasionally could be difficult. Spent a lot of time in the greenhouse growing, tending, inoculating, and collecting data from plants.
My boss was very understanding and if I ever got stuck on an experiment he would give me space to work through to a solution, but would give his input when I needed it. He was very encouraging that I take classes to gain a fuller background understanding of the job to help me in the future.
Co-workers were friendly and were willing to listen and if possible help when anyone, in or outside their lab, was having a problem.
Hardest part was going into a job that I had little experience in.
The best part of the job was being given the chance and being allowed to grow as a person.
