Very large research animal case loads
Animal Research Technician (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – January 14, 2017
Large research case loads daily,extremely fast paced and stressful work environment. Employee injuries are very high in this area. Low employee attendance is frequently seen,so the co-workers have to cover the others shift and one's case load is sadly doubled for that day.
Needed food supplies for daily husbandry is lacking daily,so one can not complete husbandry needs for their research animals that are needed for the day.
The best part working that job is the continued education one can participate in while working at the University of Minnesota if they choose too.
Ability to continue ones education
High parking cost and high union fees and daily heavy work schedules
