Short term employment
Production Supervisor Night Signmaker (Former Employee), Westwood, CAApril 28, 2015
Pros: Great working for the ivory tower, even in the basement
Cons: Poorly planned creation of night position run through a poorly appointed and crowded shop.
After successful reworking of parking lot signage and hospital door numbering 9/11 created a pinch in funding for a job newly created just before. The position was denigrated by the daytime supervisor who resented another shift.
This led to the short lived job opportunity.

Well organized quick-paced environment
Student Researcher (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAApril 26, 2015
I would run various laboratory tests such as PCR, Western Blots, Plaque assays on bacterial cell cultures. I learned a lot about how to manage time in a lab and how to conduct these tests. I also learned – more... how to divide the work accordingly so all tasks were completed in a timely manner. The hardest part of the job was getting everyone together on the same page to make sure all the tests and experiments we had to do for the day were completed. The most enjoyable part of the job was that our work could potentially lead to discovering new ways to combat multi-drug resistant tuberculosis using bacteriophage therapy. – less

Graduate Student Researcher enjoys PhD
Graduate Student Researcher (Current Employee), Los AngelesApril 9, 2015
UCLA is a great place to do a PhD overall. One does have to be careful in the research lab you select to be part of. They will be your family for the next 4 to 8 years. Professors are like snow flakes, jaded and special.

Very Friendly Staff
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee), Santa Monica, CAJanuary 30, 2015
Pros: 1 hour lunch breaks and coverage to get them
Cons: not being able to sit to chart
Worked day shift. Given area of 4 rooms to cover some or all in the hallway. Extremely busy at this time in ED, but staff were very congenial to patients and each other. They were willing to help me get – more... acclimated during my contract time in ED. Monitors and machines were placed in the same place so easy to find. The hardest thing about this job was having to stand or walk all day because there was not place to chart at computers at a desk. The most enjoyable was the patients and staff I worked with there. – less
