I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (More than a year)
Highly professional group of dedicated employees.
A management company managed my department...not MDA or the state of Texas. Too many Chiefs and not enough indians.

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at MD Anderson Cancer Center (South Houston, TX) in March 2016.
I was greeted by the PI, she stated she was very impressed with my credentials and would be hiring me immediately. (That should have been my first sign of her impulsiveness.) First RED FLAG!
Not sure what she was impressed with, I do not have a Bachelors or even an Associates degree. I am an average worker that technology has passed over. I took a short break in the field to raise my family and was not able to complete my previous community college courses. By the PI making this rash decision, the job was a nightmare, to say the least in the nicest possible way. My work environment was hostile and the research became unusable. Millions of research dollars were wasted!
This department boasted they are the richest department there at MD Anderson and have no regard for equipment costs.
When I was offered the position I did not negotiate, I was told $24.00 an hour firmly, there was no wiggle room and this position was written into the budget. There would be NO overtime ALLOWED. (Subsequently, I had to work during my lunch hour and after hours to complete the work - all while clocked out. My supervisor and PI were aware of this. This is against Federal Law, but that is what was demanded of me in order to get the work completed.)
