Pros: a great learning experience
Cons: drama, holiday/vacation/sick days after 3 months, benefits after 6
First, this job is a great job if you just got your degree and need experience, but it's not a job that you can make into a career because to move up, it's hard. They hire a lot of young people and once they become lead or supervisors, they usually don't leave unless they are forced to.
The pay is not that great for the amount of physical work you have to do, especially in main lab. There are a lot of people there who like to create drama and they play favorites a lot. There are also a lot of people who act like they know it all, but they've been there for a few months A lot of power struggles, finger pointing, and drama. It's frown upon when someone speaks their mind and management don't really know how to handle all the drama going on so they pretend to not see.
Overall, this job consumes you and get ready to not have any free time because everyone starts off working nights.
