Valuable R&D experience with good work environment
Product Development Co-op (Former Employee) – Seabrook, NH – August 21, 2013
A typical day at work consisted of making laboratory batches of methyl methacrylate adhesives and performing various quality control tests on batches. I learned how to perform tests such as viscosity with a rheometer, tensile strength with an Instron machine, cure speed, impact strength, etc. I also learned various concepts of formulations for adhesives. I had no issues with management or any co-workers there. Although I had contact with my supervisor throughout the day, most of my work was done independently and unsupervised. The hardest part of the job was getting used to making batches of glue and performing the various testing methods efficiently. Days were hectic at first, but over time I was able to perform tasks more efficiently. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with chemicals in the lab making batches of glue.
quiet work environment, ability to work independently
some days much more hectic than others
