    I have been working at Wayne State full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The hours are lenient, the atmosphere relaxed and there is a lot to learn. They were pretty much willing to work around my part time grad class schedule as long as I was available and prepared for labs.

    Cons

    Working with professors and students requires you to be on your mental toes much of the day so must be good with people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lab techs are worth more than is reflected in their salary, and experience is invaluable. I know my department wanted me to stay and needed the help, but I literally could not afford to work here. I would have stayed for all of grad school and contributed to the development of the program I was a part of if I could have even scraped by on the salary. Alas, I could not.

    I applied online – interviewed at Wayne State.

    Interview Details

    Interview was very smooth. Secretary was very helpful in scheduling the time back and forth. Most questions were focused on the job descriptions, like former experience, skills, etc. Not many out-of-box questions in the process. Interview team was very nice and warm. Definitely a great place to begin your career.
