    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Midwestern University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility, Campus-wide activities, big emphasis on health and wellness

    Cons

    lack of growth availability. Your experience also depends heavily on which PIs you work for and in what department. It can either be great or awful. High turnover rates in many labs.

    Advice to Management

    Provide growth opportunity in the position, make the annual reviews fair (they are currently highly varied between departments), do something to keep the morale up so that the techs stop leaving.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Midwestern University.

    Interview

    Set aside a whole day. I've never had a longer interview in my life. You will talk to HR, PIs in the department (some departments will split that part into multiple segments), and then you will also likely talk to current lab staff. It's a lot of the same questions over and over, but be prepared for several hours.
