The company is a pipeline company, so the environment was industrial. Few perks, my break room did not have a sink, and the water cooler was filled from the tap. I was kept on as part time, even though I often worked 40 hour weeks, no benefits, no paid time off, no sick time. I worked through a temp agency. A typical day at work involved turning on the instruments and running the standards, then testing samples. Gasoline, Diesel, and jet fuel with ASTM protocols.
