Adequate
I was only an intern which meant I was not going to be paid for my services. Other than that, it was relatively good considering the type of work I was doing.

Little guidance, almost zero training.
I spent 3 years at UCI studying to get a masters degree in English. As part of my degree package, I was assigned a teaching role for the entire 3 year period. I taught English/Composition, one section per quarter. This is a fair workload for a graduate student. The pay was satisfactory and we had full health insurance with Anthem Blue Cross. All good.

BUT I received just one day of "teacher orientation" and was then sent off to teach university-level English/Composition to freshman and sophomore students. Truly, nobody guides you or cares about this class. You could teach anything and nobody would know. There is no auditing. The only thing resembling an "audit" is that in your first quarter of teaching, a teacher slightly more senior than you will sit in on ONE of your class sessions--yes, ONE--and afterward, give you a few items of feedback. This is done very informally.


You do not have to have any previous teaching experience to do this role. In fact, most of us didn't have any at all. None. Not even tutoring.


We were given an online "course shell" from a teacher more advanced than us, which had exercises and instructions in it, but we had to modifying them all, delete some of them, add our own, with almost no guidance. For all the teachers, the first quarter of teaching is a joke through which you fumble and try to learn from your mistakes, and I feel sorry for the students because they are just practice dummies.


We had to buy our own books from which to teach.


Most of my students were international students and were learning English--many of them were in

Friendly and productive environment
The workplace culture is lively since working with students is a constant occurrence but can be stressful due to the large number of students and the high demand from workers.

like most other grad student life
Working in the lab and office also should do some TA stuff.
The hardest part of the job is to achieve the final results. The most enjoyable part of work is to see the good results in the experiments I designed.

Productive and friendly work environment
The work environment at the student center is very friendly as everyone has grown fairly close and have become friends before co-workers. This allows for the increase production as work becomes more enjoyable as you are essentially hanging out with your friends.

Motivating work place
At my job, there was intensive training. The training staff was extremely supportive and did not leave you alone when the work started. Working with students as a discussion leader was extremely beneficial for learning skills that I can use at my workplace.

Great people!
During my time at my internship, I was always included in being a leader in the camp. Despite being the youngest one, everyone there treated me like their equal.

I am currently still a student at UCI. I have been very appreciative of everything the university has to offer. If you are willing to go out of your way they can help provide internships, jobs, or whatever you're looking for.

Collaborative project based roles in Biology and chemistry
In my position as an undergraduate researcher, I was able to apply for fellowships such as "Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program" and "Summer Undergraduate Research Program" which had me work in a bio laboratory. I stay in contact with my PI every few days and was in lab generally 6-8 hrs a day. I did cell culture, bioinformatics, drug development, research submission writing, project management, inventory stocking, and lab member communications.
