Pros: Flexible schedule, location
Cons: No free lunches
As a Lab Technician I had several responsabilities involving the hardware and software equipment of the area, which included instructing proper use of them when required, fixing any problems that occurred, reporting those problems via making tickets on the Track-It platform and maintaining the equipment.
The environment was great, full of friendly co-workers, responsive management that would adapt to our needs as students, and great installations. I learned how to explain problems to non-technical people as well as how to solve technical problems such as network troubleshooting, hardware issues, and specific software problems.
Overall it was a great experience to work there.
