Bioassay Lab technician

June - August 2018 • Lafayette, LA

What I liked

The processes that are used to complete bioassay tests are really interesting and engaging, and I enjoyed the work experience. My lab mates was helpful in answering any questions I had about the tests we were doing. Because of my work in a bioassay lab centered on toxicity testing (with sediment, freshwater and saltwater ), I am now interested in the many fields bioassay covers.

What I wish was different

The work schedule would have been more compatible with my school schedule

Advice

Toxicity testing requires patience and attention to detail, so don't skip steps or rush. Being thorough is imperative to any and all processes during bioassay tests.

Engineering Associate

May - August 2018 • Troy, MI

What I liked

Assisting in running large tests that run as long as half a year.

What I wish was different

Better help with technology, the IT team was difficult to work as they were located in California. Given, the company had recently had a merge so a lot of logistics were scrambled. One of my email issues was passed over, presumably thinking my issue was resolved. I needed to work around the issue so instead of emailing customers back and forth, I was limited to phone calls instead.

Advice

Start working early, just because it's a slow day doesn't mean the customers want to wait for their daily test results.
