Research Assistant (Current Employee), Blacksburg, VAJune 8, 2014
My position as a lab and field technician provides a diversified experience that allows me to make independent decisions and work along with others. Everyone has a hard work ethic and we all make sure to keep the workplace a fun environment. The most enjoyable part is working in the field in the 1,353 acre Fishburn forest that is owned by Virginia Tech.

1st Baker (Current Employee), Blacksburg, VaApril 3, 2014
Each morning starts off with baking off all of the day's product, i.e. cookies, muffins, Danish, and breads. The next items produced is the dough for our multitude of breads. Each day over 300 pounds of pizza dough is made. Other breads include, focaccia, multigrain and a specialty bread for the week. My co-workers are eager to learn and we are always – more... trying to come up with new ideas together as a team to create new items for our menu's. The hardest part of my job would be trying to make everything look perfect. The most enjoyable part would be the fact that we make so many different items each day. – less

Graduate student life varies from area to area, and even from professor to professor so it's really hard to make a general statement about the nature of work. Nonetheless, my experience has been very good.
