Working at the hair test center at Concepts in Unilever is always fun. The staff is extremely friendly and understandable. On a daily basis I have to make sure the Hair Test Center is running smooth and under control. This is done by getting the product ready for every study, coding syringes, filling syringes with product, labeling the product to hide the brand, sorting consents in order, and signing in panelist that are participating in the study into the system using iPads. I also help stylist throughout the day with questions or concerns, as well as supervising them when manager is away from the Hair Test Center.
I could say that with time I have learned how the company works and why concepts exist. I have also been able to learned from my co-workers to be a better team player and keep a positive attitude around the office. I was also able to recruit panelist over the phone, which is something I have never done before.
The job is not hard at all but if I have to point something hard about the job, I would probably say that is the the fact that sometimes people cancel their appointment or don't show for the study. The number of cancelations or no shows can stop us from completing the study by a certain deadline. Which means we have to recruit more panelist and reschedule the study for a different day.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the positive attitude everyone has, the respect, professionalism among everyone, as well as the flexible schedule.
