The day starts when they slide that big door up. As the members slipped through our counter was always first on their list. Helping them with uploading their photos, picking up photos or just giving technical advice to accomplish what they need. We were very lucky in our department as our managers were always there to assist. Yet they felt comfortable to leave us alone to run things. Proper training in equipment and and services is the key to this. The staff I worked with was great, we had laughs but when it came down to working it was a team effort that made the days seem easy even when it was extremely busy. Probably the hardest part of the job was mechanical failure of the equipment and trying to get product to our members as fast as possible. I was a problem solver and loved finding the issue and fixing it. I learned my vendors by their first name so when ordering supplies could learn how the rest of the world was doing and putting orders for our lab. The best part of my job was one on one with the members and the people I worked with.
