Productive Workplace but lacked organization
Student Assistant R&D (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXJanuary 2, 2015
Pros: take lunches when and how long you want. can come in to work at anytime as long as you get work done
Cons: plant produced a large amount of heat and it was texas summer
A typical day of work included taking samples, looking at data, and pilot plant operations. As it was my first internship with chemical engineering, I learned basic chemical engineering principles and how to manage a pilot plant. My coworkers were very happy and hardworking. The hardest part of the job absorbing the new information learned everyday. The most enjoyable part was having a job in a field I love.
