Typical work day: Come into workplace, immediately directed by employer to begin work. Begin by cleaning workplace, cutting paraffin wax, and organizing chemicals/materials for making solutions
I learned many things on-site: making chemical solutions, learning metric weight measurements and conversions.
Management: Very professional and easy to work with.
Culture: Organized and efficient ("Well-oiled machine")
Hardest part of the job: Keeping up with daily routine. Some days are busier than others and with few preparation assistants, days can be very hectic.
Most enjoyable part of the job: Learning new concepts, ideas, and techniques on a daily basis. There's never a short of things to do around the prep laboratory.
