Co-op Student (Former Employee), Burnaby, BCSeptember 17, 2013
Pros: friendly working environment, good hours
Cons: colony picking and spiking 96-well plates individually
I've worked as a co-op for the molecular biology team at Amgen BC. A typical day at work would begin with me checking in with my supervisor to have a pow-wow of the day's plans, confirming what I need to do that day. If I have some free time in between running experiments and logging the experiments in electronically, I would do more menial but necessary housework - stocking up on pipettes, checking on media quantity, etc. The molecular biology team was a great group of people to work with and learn from. They were patient and kind, and great to get along with, easy to communicate with. The hardest part of the job for me was thinking a few steps ahead to know what to prepare for experiments; initially, I wasn't too familiar with the SOPs, so making the prep work my second nature took some effort. The most enjoyable part of the job was when I did become very comfortable with the general day-to-day workflow and got chances to learn skills that were not required by my duties.

Overall, I'm grateful for being given the opportunity to work at such a great company.
