Pay and safety standards were pathetic

Field crews for biology research projects sent into remote location with no cell service, no radios, no one knew where we were and no safety training or plans. At one point our crew lead asked us to walk into a wildfire and stomp it out. Job description said housing would be provided, but half the season would have been camping in the middle of nowhere with zero facilities and closest town an hour away... and no camping equipment, food or water, or proper home base is provided, everything is out of pocket for a minimum wage job. When safety concerns were communicated to professor leading the project, they put the blame on me and said I don't know the standards of the industry. It doesn't take much to understand that sending field crews into the wilderness with no radios or safety equipment is definitely not acceptable in any industry.

Cons

Poor safety, poor pay
