Stock Room Assistant (Current Employee) – Tuscaloosa, AL – January 22, 2013
Working in the stockroom is very enjoyable. The most enjoyable part is the fact that I'm able to meet new people everyday. My co-workers are also very sweet people. I feel like my supervisor has a very open relationship with her employees and insures us that we can talk to her about anything.

Graduate Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Tuscaloosa, AL – May 28, 2013
I gave the overview of the experiment, then I showed how to set up the equipment and then just be there if they have any question. Actually the students have lot of questions/problems while they do experiment. But if you love Chemistry and working with undergraduates, you will love this job.

Certified Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – July 2, 2012
UAB has some great areas to work in but its not for the lazy. There is a lot of walking (huge hospital), heavy lifting, interaction with people, etc. It is very rewarding too because you learn something new everyday and so much. I worked with a great team and I miss them sometimes.
Postdoctoral Fellow (Former Employee) – Tuscaloosa, AL – May 2, 2012
