This Title Is Wonderful, No?

Posted 07-15-2010 at 03:28 PM by ggstaff
No, that is not what this blog post is about.

It's so hot in this damn office. It's like the no AC exists but it's just put on really low. I guess if I wanted to cooldown, I could walk to the Lab go into the freezer.

Update on life.

I've been working at SSRL (Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource), which is located in SLAC.

So far all I've been doing is crystallizing proteins, observing proteins that outside labs have made, separating them into their correct Classes, etc.

Other then that, I sometimes space out because it gets boring.
Last week I read through 460+ research papers just to determine which Class they belonged in. The other people that work with me tend to go out more often so it sucks for me.

There are a few bright sides to this job.

Working here gives you the upper hand in this subject if you will learn it in college. Easy stuff to breeze through.

The next thing is that it's $13.40 per hour. We turn in our time sheet every 2 weeks, so that's about $1179.20 per paycheck.
That will give me a total of $5038.40 by the time I stop working. They still need to take out medical expenses and what not in case something happens at work but that's fine with me.

The other one is that if you work really well, the Managers tend to hire you again the next summer. They don't even bother giving other people the chance to apply. SLAC is known to do that so it's nothing surprising.
Gotta love private hiring.
