My typical day during work was focusing on organizing labs and take an inventory about all the equipment that we have for probably 5 Labs or more. after finishing that work. we started disassemble multiple printers and use some of its parts in building robots, all of that work was before school started during the summer working full time from 8am to 5pm.
When school start, I have been assigned by the Mechanical professor to take an engine apart and then fix a couple part in it and reassemble it in a way that he could explain to the class how this engine works.
I learned how to weld during my free time. Also, gained some experience by using multiple mechanical equipment to building something or for drilling.
My time was neat there was no problem start working at 8am - 5pm including 15minutes break.
My co-workers were seniors and juniors as well as I am during Fall 2014.
There was no hard time of the job really but it was fun to work with seniors and graduate students from that year as well and I gained some experience by just talking with them including cleaning nevertheless it takes a lot of time but it is easy.
