Great lab experience and friendly people
Research Assistant (Former Employee), New Brunswick, NJJuly 27, 2013
A typical day at work is 7 hours a day Monday through Friday and if necessary a couple hours on the weekend. It is a crowded laboratory with many different experiments running at the same time but the graduate students and undergraduates are very dedicated, hard-working and it pushes one to do the very best. It was a great start for me to keep gaining – more... hands on experience working in a laboratory setting. Most of the experiments are done individually but the fellow coworkers are always willing to lend a helping hand. – less

Pros: pay, pay.

School
Tutor (Former Employee), New Brunswick, NJJune 16, 2013
This was a pretty good work study job. If I could I would pick something else because you are always around books and as a college student it gets overwhelming. None the less it is a great opportunity and with a little bit of bias it is the "Best school in the Country".
