Lots of outdoor time!
Scientific Technician (Former Employee) –  Kennewick, WAApril 3, 2013
I walked along the riverbank interviewing fishermen, gathering samples from any fish they had caught for a study.

Had a great boss... never really saw my co-workers as we were assigned to different locations every day.

Hardest part of the job was getting people to realize I wasn't enforcement and didn't care about their license or how many fish they had, just needed data on the ones they had.

Best part of the job was watching someone catch a 36in stealhead!
Pros
lots of free time between things, i read an entire book series and learned to knit.
Cons
it was cold at times, occasional uncooperative public
